Lodge/Treehouse Safari 3 Days

Kruger National Park, SOUTH AFRICA

Imagine……………….. inhale the fresh balmy air of African Bushveld. Fall asleep to the gurgling of the river, interrupted by the eerie whoops of hyena, spine-chilling wails of jackals and the plaintive cry of the thick-tailed bushbaby. Awaken to the melodious chorus of birdsong and watch the activity of wildlife drinking at the river or at our spotlit waterhole. Walk along the pristine banks of the perennial Klaserie River amongst huge Sycamore Figs and giant Matumi trees……….this is Marc’s Treehouse Lodge.

Marc’s Treehouse Lodge has a swimming pool, a bush bar and a rustic boma where 3 course meals are served. After your evening meal, which always has a typical African flavour, you can relax around the crackling campfire and share your impressions of the day’s wildlife highlights and adventures.

Testimonials:

“Close to Nature”

Wow… This place gives you both adrenaline and lots of joy. We will NEVER forget when a leopard was killing an animal just by the river (<50 m from the treehouse) and screaming/calling just outside our treehouse (<1 m). We could not take a breath until it was gone. When we were leaving we took a bush walk outside the camp and found a lot of footprints around the whole camp. Amazing!

“Excellent and economic – choose Viva if you want experience as a family”

We were traveling on a budget and they were able to accommodate. We saw the animals but also learned about them. The staff at Marc’s and the guides with Viva were so helpful and patient with our kids. An experience you will cherish for sure!
