AMAZING TRAVEL FACTS
Did you know that the oldest safari lodge in the world is built on stilts and is extra famous because Queen Elizabeth II visited it in 1952 as a princess and left as a queen? Amazing, isn’t it?
Do you know where we need to travel to in order to stay at this lodge?
It is indeed the Treetops Lodge in Kenya.
Founded in 1932, Treetops is Kenya’s oldest safari lodge, and Princess Elizabeth was in residence here when she was told of the death of her father, King George VI, prompting her ascendency to the throne. “For the first time in the history of the world,” wrote big-game hunter Jim Corbett in the Treetops logbook, “a young girl climbed into the tree as a princess and climbed down as a queen.”
