I was initially apprehensive when I first viewed some of the uppermost reviews which were very negative about this treehouse lodge, and the management's rather blunt responses back to the clients, though they are more than welcome to do so. I would like to state, however, that from a fair perspective, Marc's Treehouse has indeed been a wonderful experience, and... More

We were in Kruger during winter (month of July) & the nights were quite cold. The tents did not have heating & we froze to death that night. the zipper on my tent wasn't working either. I tried to inform one of the staff houses but no one responded when I knocked at the door (even though there were people... More

Marc's Treehouse Lodge was one of the best accommodations on my entire trip to South Africa. The staff was super friendly and ready to help with everything, and the guides were very knowledgeable. I enjoyed every single morning with good mood and smiles.

Marc's tree house bush camp put visitors into the thick of things. The camp has (had) 12 tree houses, #4 is being repaired. However only #5 is truly up high in the trees. The camp also has multiple 2 room platform tents. Being on a reserve be prepared for animals. We had 2 resident spiders, one at the front door... More

For people who like a different experience. Had a beautiful treehouse by the river - so calm and quiet at night! Home-cooked dinner around the fire was lovely. Loads of Impala roam around the grounds, I was very sorry to leave.

I've spent 3 nights in this lodge; for the ones who are used to regular hotels or hostels, just like me, it might seem a little bit unsettling at first, but it's just a matter of a few hours and you'll start loving the experience! The lodge comprises huts, treehouses and tents, and it's not rare to see some innocuous... More

We had room 5, the greatest treehouse and it was fabulous! We liked it very much! It was clean and nice to hear noises from outside. You had a great view from the balcony. Real African feeling! Friendly staff and good food. We would recommend this to everyone!

Marc's Treehouse Lodge was an incredible experience! The website does not do this place justice. I was lucky enough to get room/cabin #1 which is right down by the river bank. I was travelling along, so the room was a single occupancy. It was absolutely the most beautiful cabin in the African bush. This would be a great place if... More

Very accommodating staff. Monkeys And Nyala run rampant. Above the average tree house. Food was decent. Guides were good. Drinks were great priced. Would have liked to have more fenced in tree house but remember a tree house is literally a tree house. Needed a private flight to Joburg & the staff helped me to the greatest extent possible. free... More
