More about Marc's Treehouse Lodge
Motlala Game Reserve
MARC'S TREEHOUSE LODGE offers rustic but comfortable accommodation geared to put one in close contact with the sights, sounds and scents of the wild. The treehouses are made of wood and reeds under thatch and blend harmoniously into the dense riverine vegetation.
Creature comforts include electric fans, mosquito nets and comfortable beds, with linen, towels and soap provided. 24 hour WIFI is available to all guests. Each treehouse has its own private ablutions and has a viewing deck overlooking the perennial Klaserie River or the “Breakfast” Dam, where animals often come to drink.
The treehouses are unobtrusively located on the elevated banks of the river, providing excellent views of the terrain. Marc’s Treehouse Lodge is part of the Motlala Game Reserve which boasts well-watered grazing for its varied fauna. White and Black Rhino, Buffalo, Giraffe, Zebra along with the numerous antelope have made the Motlala Reserve a real wildlife paradise. Among the predators, Leopard and Hyena are more often heard than seen. The nights at Marc’s Treehouse Lodge are enriched by the calls of its denizens : the eerie whoops of hyena; the spine-tingling wail of jackals , the distant roar of lions and the plaintive cry of the thick-tailed bushbaby add an unforgettable aural dimension to one’s appreciation of the bush.

“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!
