This is a compilation of 2 videos taken during safari drives on the 2nd and 3rd of June 2016. The Pondoro Treehouse hide is proving to be very popular with guests visiting Pondoro’s Game Lodge accommodation. We offer complementary picnics during lunchtime. It is essential to book as we offer this as an exclusive experience per booking. Guests will thus be able to enjoy their bush picnic in total privacy while looking out onto the waterhole trying to spot some animals wanting to quench their thirst. Guests will be taken at noon and dropped off at the hide to be collected at 14hoo. They are supplied with a 2-way radio for communication.
The treehouse hide can also be booked for a sleep-out far away from civilization for the more adventurous. A solar powered spotlight can be switched on for game viewing at night. Most animals drink during the daylight hours and we always advise visitors not to expect non-stop action during the night, but to rather enjoy the ambience of a night alone in wildest Africa under a beautiful dome of brightly lit stars. Any animals visiting must be seen as a bonus. Having said that guests sleeping at the hide have seen lions, elephants, rhinos and buffaloes as well as several antelope species. The sleep-out experience can be booked for an extra R2500.00 night. Please book this in advance to your stay by contacting our reservations office as it is quite popular. Guests will still enjoy dinner at the safari lodge and will be taken by a 4×4 safari cruiser to the hide afterwards. Guests are welcome to take a bottle of wine etc with, and flasks with tree, coffee and hot chocolate are also provided. Please not that there is no running water at the Pondoro treehouse hide and ablution facility is an ecotoilet.
