All tree houses were unique with great views. All meals served were excellent, with a tasty treat after dinner. Being within the gates of the park was an adventure in itself. Service was fantastic! Each of the rangers had a style of their own and personalized each outing to make it memorable. Each day was full of adventure, the only...

Hi Michelle We are so thrilled to read that everything was better than you were expecting !! Monkeys swinging from the trees outside your treehouse and giraffe drinking from the pool in front of your treehouse give the quintessential feeling of being on safari - and you haven't yet left your treehouse ! We are pleased that you found our...

We spent a few days at Marc's and loved our experience. We ended up in a treehouse right by the reception area and it was for a family of 4 so we had a lot of room. There was a bathroom built into the treehouse so we didn't need to leave in the middle of the night. It was a...

Booked through African Budget Safari (themselves a great group of active and past tour guides) to find ourselves in the incredible hospitality of Marc's Camp! The treehouse lodges are incredible, especially in the winter (August) when insects are scarce and the cloudless sky is ideal for stargazing. Bring lots of layers and you will be very comfortable. The staff was...

We booked through Detour Africa on a 4 day trip and stayed at both Tremisana and Marc's Treehouse. The trip was provided by Viva safaris and was recommended as we were traveling with teenage boys.

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...
