We visited Marc's camp as part of our Safari package and stayed in one of the tree houses - it was so much fun! Exactly the sort of thing I wanted to do, all the staff were so lovely and the food was incredible too. A real rustic experience, I wish I could have stayed longer! The morning bush walks... More

We were a group of 12 who stayed for a 4 day, 3 night tour. It was incredible and this experience was a highlight of our month in South Africa. We saw TONS of animals, including the famous big five; lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalo. Giraffes and impalas seem to be roaming everywhere, and there are several monkeys and... More

I stayed at Marc's Treehouse Lodge on a 4 day 3 night tour. Wish I had stayed longer. The staff was professional and polished and answered all the questions and the accomodation was unique and filled with sounds of the wild. There are tons of wild animals coming around the camp (most are harmless) so its really good value for... More

Wish I stayed more than one night. The treehouse was perfect and comfortable. All of the staff were helpful and friendly. The morning bush walk was exciting and informative. I will have to plan a longer stay next time.

We stayed in on of the pre set up tents which had there own power supply lights and set up beds which on the whole were very comfortable, toilets and showers were less en 10 meters away and were very clean ignoring the odd spiders web or frog. However considering you were "in the bush" this was not an issue.... More

Stayed there for one night with 12 other friends in April 2014. The staff were really friendly and living in a treehouse or what looked like a treehouse was a great experience. The bathrooms were shared. The morning walk in the forest seemed dull after the whole-day safari with great game-watching the previous day. The treehouses were clean with little... More

I stayed there in Dec 2014. Unfortunately there are only 2 actual tree houses left, the rest of the rooms are bungalows. So if you want the true experience make sure you book an actual tree house. I managed to stay in a tree house and it was great. The lodge is in an excellent location and you truly feel... More

Hi Rheinhard Thank you for taking time to write a comprehensive review. I am disappointed that you found Marc's Treehouse Lodge "Just OK" as all the previous recent reviews use words such as "charming", "great ", "friendly", "exciting" and "comfortable". I am also disappointed in the comment about our "budget" facilities as in the last year we have added sliding... More
