Very knowledgeable, fun, hardworking staff!

This experience was truly amazing!! Sleeping in the treehouses was an experience I would love to do again! Viva safaris provided such a fun environment. Got to see so many animals during the safaris. Truly enjoyed the meals they provided. It was also great to kickback with new friends and enjoy some Castle lites! Cheers! Would love to do this again!

Our tour with Viva Safaris met all our expectations in every way. FANTASTIC! The booking process was quick and informative and all the pick ups and schedules were timely. The Viva staff at the lodges were friendly helpful and the food delicious!! The hostess and kitchen staff at Marc’s Lodge even treated us to a birthday cake and Zulu dance!! MEMORABLE! We liked the rustic feel of both Tremesana and Marc’s Lodge which gave you a real sense of being in the Bush. The game drives were great and we were lucky to see lots of animals including the big 5. The guides were all very knowledgeable and informative. Elias entertained us with his great sense of humor and plenty of sightings of “Bush McDonalds “!! “ All part of the Game!”
Big thank you to ALL the staff Including drivers and those in the background for making our holiday so memorable!
Stay safe through Covid19 and wish you all the best in the future!

Fun, well organized and an amazing family experience.

My family and I wanted to do a Safari in South Africa, it took a long time to make the decision on what company to go with but we finally decided Viva Safari.
My mum, dad, sister and her boyfriend and myself spent 2 nights at one camp and 2 nights in tree house. The treatment by staff was superb and the drives were such an eye opener and breathtaking when seeing so many diferente animals. Very non artificial, we felt as f we were in middle of nowhere but safe at the same time.
The food and timing was shocking by its quality and variety (probably ate too much).
Overall the trip was a 10/10, a brilliant way to spend a family holiday and an experience of a lifetime.
Recommend it, you will not regret it!

Absolutely wonderful!

From beginning to the end it was such a lovely experience, filled with great hospitality, kindness, friendliness, and patience from all the people who took charge of the logistics of our days and nights. The accommodation, meals and the soul filling hours on safari in the parks were all truly fabulous! And exciting! There was a seamless flow to the activities scheduled for each day and all we were required to do was to relax and enjoy it all; all logistics were cared for with aplomb!
I’d love to do it all over again!

A magical treehouse adventure full of animals and amazing people.

It was even better then expected! Our treehouse was awesome with a beautiful view of the river. Animals are everywhere throughout the camp and it really made you feel submerged in the safari the whole time. The sounds at night were incredible. Its like everything came alive at night and created an incredible sound display to fall asleep to. THE STARS!! Dont even get me started about the stars at night, WOW! The staff was so kind and the food was so delicious! We only wish we could have stayed longer!! Thank you Mark's treehouses we will be back!

Perfect trip, unforgettable memories

Everything was wonderful. I got fetched up at the airport in Johannesburg, then spend one night at Tremisana, where I had a wonderful time, with nice people, amazing night safari, braii in the bush and special morning bush walk with "Hakuna Matata". What an awesome man!

The next day we went to Marc's Tree House, where I spend the rest of my trip (4 nights). The stuff is great and the food very tasty. It was so fun to meet some nyalas on your way to the breakfast. The tree houses are stylish if you don't matter with some bugs. :D. and the loud silence in the night is unforgettable!!!

While my safari tours, I have seen a big variety of animals, espacially the cheethas have been great, I will never forget how I felt, sitting in the open vehicle and watching these big cats eating an impala...
All in all I had a perfect trip!!! Thank you so much!

Fantastic Safari

First time to South Africa. Absolutely Fantastic.
August. Few, if no, mosquitoes. We didn't use mosquito nets. No problem.
Animal sightings were great during the day. The Guides were super animal finders. Dress cool weather in the morning. Open cars, lots of wind. Bring buff, knit cap, good jacket, it rained one day. It warmed up nicely during the day, low 60's F.
The walks with the guide, loved the walks, getting close to the dirt and trees, and river. No animal sightings on the walks.
The night drives and night animal searches: Not that great. Few, random animals. The best at night was a stop to look at stars.
The food at Marc's Tree house: EXCELLENT. The dinner and breakfast were great.
The food you buy in Kruger Park: use the convenient store. Prices are very good, and lines are quick. Restaurants in Park take too long. You will be late.
I had to be a little flexible with my rooms. The staff switched rooms on us twice. I didn't care, I took whatever room, and it turned out great.
Mahalo halo animal rescue center was EXCELLENT.
