Treetops is the original tree lodge, legendary for its historical royal connection, for the animals it attracts and for the sheer joy of exploring a tree house visited by rhino, elephant, buffalo, lion, bushbuck, waterbuck and many other species.
You leave the Outspan after lunch for the ten-mile drive to Treetops and are met by a ranger who will help you with the common sense rules of behaviour necessary for safety and good animal viewing. The lodge rises dramatically out of the ground on stilts and overlooks a water hole and salt lick. It has four decks and a rooftop-viewing platform. Solely dedicated to game viewing, the accommodation is compact and cosy. At 6450 feet above sea level it is chilly at night at all times of the year and during the Kenyan winter, from June to September, you will need sweaters and hats for comfort and warmth.
The fifty twin bedded rooms are small and neat and cosy, like cabins on board ship. Dinner is served at refectory tables with bench seating - what fun.
