World's Coolest Tree-House Hotels

Coolest Tree-House Hotels: Tongabezi

Courtesy of Tongabezi

Tongabezi, Livingstone, Zambia

Why It’s Unique: Built among the branches of a riverine Ebony tree, this tree house overlooks the Zambezi River. From the king-size, canopied bed and from claw-footed bath, guests can gaze at the river, which feeds into Victoria Falls. Anatolian carpets, Asian chests, and West African artwork will stoke your wanderlust.

Access: A winding hidden path along the cliff face.

What to Do: Victoria Falls (the world’s largest waterfall) awaits in nearby Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Helicopter rides and microlight flights offer aerial views, or test your sense of adventure with a safari in Chobe National Park. Rather relax? Wind down the evening with a sunset cruise and a traditional Tonga massage.
