We booked through Detour Africa travelling in late September/early October and stayed at both Tremisana and Marc's Treehouse. Tremisana was lovely but Marc's treehouse was favourite. We stayed in Treehouse 2 which overlooked the waterhole, what a fantastic view to wake up to each morning! Our first full day in the Kruger provided some great game viewing and we got...

Hi It is such a great compliment to Viva Safaris and Marc's Treehouse Lodge to know that you so enjoyed your experience that you decided to extend it by two nights !

The experience and stay at this Lodge went well beyond our expectations! Great 3 night stay. We stayed in the highest treehouse #5 and it was awesome! You had to climb about 20 very steep steps. The bathroom and shower (outdoor) was about 20 steps away. Fading off to sleep and waking to the sounds of the wild was amazing....

I loved this rustic camp nestled in the Motlala Game Reserve. Our treehouse was very comfortable with a small deck and it's own bathroom. Extra blankets kept us warm at night even in winter. Shared meals outside were delightful. The staff was excellent! We had a fabulous game drive in Kruger and a lovely early morning bush walk on the...

HI Mary Ann Thank you for taking the time to write a good review. We are very pleased that you enjoyed your treehouse - the rustic nature of this lodge is what sets it apart.

I will keep it short as many reviews have already been placed for this tremendous spot in a private game reserve close to the Kruger National Park. The staff is very friendly and attentive.
