Stayed here a couple of weeks ago. What an amazing time we had here. All staff were amazing. Clean rooms, rustic surrounds, meeting new people and the adventures, where over whelming. Each day anither new adventure. Experienced a few African massages, traveling in safari vehicles and viewing all the wildlife.

Marc's tresshouse camp, one of the things I liked the most about this lodge was the Nyala that are found around the camp and the beautiful deck where they serve breakfast overlooking a small dam. The rooms are comfortable. I was impressed at how nice they were despite being a treehouse.

Had no expectation as to what a Kruger Safari would be like. We did the 3-day Masango Camp. It was unfortunate that the first night, we were the only guests on the camp site; could not help...

We had a safari programme of 6 days/ 5 night, but 2 or 3 days is enough. Day five (cultural experience) was cancellated and we got no information until the day before so we had nothing to do or take another safari. The food is a bit the same all 6 days and you can´t have food in your room...

Hi Jeannette Thanks for writing a good review.

We booked a 3 day Safari through Viva Safaris (African Budget Safaris) and our second night was spent at Marc's Treehouse. What an experience. The house was more a cabin but very unique. Literally in the middle of the bush. The staff was amazing and even had our place decorated for our honeymoon. It's definitely a one of a kind...

Absolutely enjoyed the Safari! I spent 5 days there: the stuff is very friendly and the guides know alot so you will learn many things about the african bush. Huge change to see all Big Five and watch the animlas in their natural habitat. A Safari is an experience which will take your breath away. Viva Safari👍🏻
