I've spent a couple of nights at marcs treehouse and it was just amazing. The set up of the lodge is truly beautiful, everything is made out of wood and is in the middle of nature. Impalas, buffalos and monekys can easily cross your paths. my treehouse was just great, literally the only "real" protection you have is the moskito...

Hi Frau S Thanks for a truly WOW review !! It is so fulfilling for all of us at Viva Safaris to know how much you enjoyed yourself. From the encounters with impalas, monkeys and buffalos to applying Margrett's advice regarding keeping all insects, frogs and monkeys out of your treehouse, it must have been a great adventure. We are...

A good 'value' pick in a great rural setting. The tree houses, cabins and tents really are set within nature and it is a relaxing place to be with bush sights and sounds. Standard food and accommodation that reflects the price but all clean and fine and a really committed and welcoming staff to look after you and take you...

We stayed at Marc's Treehouse for 2 nights as part of our 4-day safari. As some people have mentioned, not all the rooms are treehouses; in fact, amongst our group of 10 only 1 person got to stay in the actual treehouse whilst the rest of us stayed in cabins. Nonetheless, the cabin was comfortable & clean, and it was...

Hi Daisy Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased that you loved the " bambis" - these are in fact nyala antelope and they and their young especially are super-cute. We are glad that, despite the presence of the odd "bug", you found staying in a treehouse "amazing". Pleasing also that you found the...

My stay at Marc's Treehouse was a pleasure!! It gives you a wonderful unique safari experience. Waking up in the middle of nature with the birds chirping is an experience I will never forget. The staff was on the ball, and I had a great time. I'd highly reccommend to any traveler.

We booked Viva Safaris through African Budget Safari and are very happy with the lodge manager and our guides! :) We have requested for a treehouse accommodation and it was made available for us. Thank you so much! For those looking for some adventure (i'm a urban kid), do request for one. Note that the toilet and bathroom are no...

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!
