4 Day Budget Kruger Safari at Private Game Lodge (VSO5)

4 Day Budget Kruger Safari at Private Game Lodge (VSO5)

Imagine... inhale the fresh balmy air of African Bushveld. Fall asleep to the gurgling of the river, interrupted by the eerie whoops of hyena, spine-chilling wails of jackals and the plaintive cry of the thick-tailed bushbaby. Awaken to the melodious chorus of birdsong and watch the activity of wildlife drinking at the river or at our spotlit waterhole. Walk along the pristine banks of the perennial Klaserie River amongst huge Sycamore Figs and giant Matumi trees...this is Marc's Treehouse Lodge.

View of Breakfast Dam

Accommodation at Marc's is secure, comfortable and relaxed. We offer 12 treehouses : four original units built in the trees with designated private ablutions on the ground below and eight en suite units built on stilts within the tree canopy. Three treehouses overlook an illuminated waterhole, often frequented by our resident buffalo herd while nine treehouses are discreetly nestled in gallery forest along the river. Each treehouse is equipped with beds and linen, soap and towels, overhead fan, mosquito nets and wooden viewing deck. In addition we have added two brick and mortar guest houses as well as four equipped canvas tents for those of our clients that prefer these types of accommodation.

Rustic treehouse overlooking river

Marc's Treehouse Lodge has a swimming pool, a bush bar and a rustic boma where 3 course meals are served. After your evening meal, which always has a typical African flavour, you can relax around the crackling campfire and share your impressions of the day's wildlife highlights and adventures.

Day One :

We collect our clients from all hotels and guesthouses in Gauteng as well as from Johannesburg Airport. We travel via farmlands to the picturesque Lowveld and on to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balule Section of the Kruger Park. After a short break, during which you may unwind at the bar, have a swim or relax in the tropical gardens, we board the open Landcruiser for a 3h Sunset Drive. Your guide will show you various animals and birds and after darkness falls, we use spotlights to locate nocturnal species. Dinner will be a typical South African meal in our Boma. Overnight in comfortable air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets.

Day Two :

Awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day of unforgettable bush life. Drive to a remote part of the Balule Plains, where you enjoy a 4h Bush Walk. Your experienced field guide will lead you through the bush. The thrill of following Africa's large animals until you can take a photo will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, notwithstanding the presence of your armed ranger. Return to Tremisana for brunch. At 14h00 we go on an afternoon game drive. Transfer to Marc's Treehouse Lodge where accommodation is in fascinating and romantic treehouses.

Day Three :

We travel to the Kruger Park where we board our open Gameviewer. The absence of windows and elevated vantage position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. You will have an amazing chance not only to view game but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens. There will be regular stops at picnic spots and rest camps. Your experienced ranger will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise. The Orpen-Satara region boasts open plains and supports large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope that attract numerous predators. In fact the zones we visit have the highest concentration of lions in Africa !

Day Four:

Enjoy an early morning walk accompanied by an armed ranger. We then drive to the awesome Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon. Return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport dropoff by arrangement.

"The lodge is very basic and offers good value. Most of the time your out on game drives anyway. The staff and guides are excellent. Thanks for a great trip."
