3 Day Lodge/Tented Safari - Marcs Tree House Lodge
Kruger National Park
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.
Accommodation consists of three double-bedded and two four-bedded tents supplied with beds, bedding, towels and soap, electric lights and electric fan. Ablutions include two separate showers and two separate toilets. We offer 3, 4 and 5-day packages.
THREE DAY TENTED EXPERIENCE
Day One :Pick up from your hostel or Johannesburg Airport and travel in an airconditioned vehicle via Dullstroom or Nelspruit to Tremisana Lodge. After a short break ( swim/ early Sundowner at the bar ) you board the open Landcruiser for a 3 hour sunset drive. Your qualified guide will facilitate your first sightings of Africa's varied fauna. We stop for photos of the magnificent African sunset. After dark, your guide will use a powerful spotlight to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner in the Boma around a crackling fire will be a typical South African meal. An exciting highlight to all our packages in 2014 : the Bush Braai. The guests will enjoy a braai at a remote spot in Balule. After dinner, stay over at Tremisana.
Day Two : After breakfast you travel on the open-sided Gameviewer to the Orpen Gate of Kruger. The added elevation and absence of windows allow for excellent viewing and photographic opportunities. Your qualified guide will show you various animals, large and small, that frequent this outstanding wildlife paradise. The zone of Kruger you visit has the highest percentage population of giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and impala that attract numerous lions and other predators. Dinner and overnight at Marc’s Camp. Our tents are on elevated concrete bases thus avoiding muddy conditions
Day Three : We have an early morning Bush Walk accompanied by an armed ranger. You will be shown various interesting details of the bush, including insects, spoor and scats. You have an excellent chance of encountering buffalo, nyala and other game on foot. After breakfast, we drive to the Three Rondawels of the Blyde River Canyon. We return you to your hostel or airport at around 17h00.
