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

i read about this place on Trip Advisor and couldn't believe the review about a person that complained about insects and bugs in his Treehouse/Tent/Room.. I mean what do you expect when sleeping in the bush? A golden pillow and silver soap? When we came to Marc's Threehouse Lodge, electricity was out and first this made me nervous, but when... More

We stay here one night during our safari. The place is in the wild with animals walking around freely. Our treehouse was a bit further away from the main building, so we had to walk a bit, but that wasn`t an issue. The treehouse No. 1 was ensuite and was nicely furnished and clean. There is a small water area... More

The place is just amazing. Its literally in the jungle with no fencing. Early mornings one can see a lot of wild life just outside the tent. The bathrooms are not attached (ofcourse) but are close by and clean. We lived in the tent and had no problems with insects or monkeys as we could zip up and seal the... More
