Tour description provided by Viator

The 3-night/4-day Kruger safari tour offers a different and exciting trip to guests who don’t mind roughing it slightly to enjoy the privilege of a unique African bushveld experience. Guests stay in rustic but comfortable treehouses at a bushveld lodge on a private game situated on the border of the Kruger National Park. The treehouses are nestled in a riverine forest with views of the Klaserie River and a busy waterhole. Game viewing at Marc’s Treehouse Lodge is 24/7. The tour is a combination of guided sunrise bush walks, Big Five safari tours in an open safari vehicle and evenings spent under the stars enjoying an authentic African bushveld braai (barbeque). The 4-day Treehouse Kruger safari ends with a tour of the Panorama Route which includes the world-renowned Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondavels. Transfers to and from Johannesburg in an air-conditioned Quantum.
