Perched over the bank of the Zambezi river, the Tongabezi Tree House is a lavish wooden resort where guests are pampered like celebrities. Set against a basalt rock bed right at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, this otherworldly tree house spotted over at Fast Co.Design blends Anatolian carpets with Asian chests and West African artwork in a spacious interior dominated by several protruding tree trunks.
Part of a large resort boasting several types of facilities, the tree house is a secluded spot that invokes exotic day dreams. A hidden path starts at the end of a large swimming pool and winds along a cliff face, leading to the house. A sustainable pine deck perches over the river, providing stunning views of the surrounding landscape. Several riverine ebony tree trunks rise through the floor, while the basalt cliff acts as the structure’s back wall.
The open-space interior is discreetly sectioned into the sleeping area and living room, which can also be used for private dining and lounging. The bathroom’s claw footed bath, together with luxurious carpets and West African artwork, create an exotic atmosphere particularly beautiful at dusk, when the gently lit space turns into a cozy belvedere opening up to the stunning Zambian landscape.
