"Great diverse safari"

Nice to have different drives and guides are really focused on making sure you get to see the animals. The camps were good and food was very good too.

"First Safari"

We both loved the whole experience and very happy we booked with Viva! Great value for money on this budget safari we saw the big5, went on a variety of drives, bushwalk and activities. Had great accommodation, we stayed 3 of vivas properties. We really appreciated the staff at Katekani tented lodge for making my beautiful birthday cake and singing happy birthday to me on my 60th birthday morning! Also a special thankyou to Rex, Jo, Victor, Nikko, Charr and Ruth!

"Bush nights, walks & more"

What I really liked about our stay was the staff, who we're enthousiast, friendly and excited about the trip and everything else.

What I also liked were the desserts..

But I didn't came for desserts, I came to spot some cool wild animals in their natural habitat. And that's what we did & that was amazing!

"Incredible Experience "

Amazing guides! Highly recommend Shannon (Dusty), victor, and our all time favorite Charl! Great activities, always had something interactive and learned a lot! Food and accommodation was GREAT, the tree house is in the middle of the reserve and you get to see animals all around at all times. They take you to various game drives around town- giving you so many opportunities to see the big 5! The rehab center and bush walk were one of a kind experiences!

"5 days tree house safari with Viva Safari"

I liked the Tremisana Lodge and the Marc's tree house camp too, but this one is a disaster in case of rain. The women staff was fantastic.

"A Danish girl in the Krüger "

I really liked that I was traveling with the same people from the beginning. I had booked the tour on my own, so I was a little bit nervous being alone all the time (first time traveling by myself!) - but to my big surprise it turned out to be one of the best experiences I have ever had!

The people at the lodge was really friendly and when we ate dinner with the guides and camp manager, we really got to talk about subject you wouldn't be able to discuss otherwise.

I really liked that everything was taken care of, so I shouldn't think about anything as soon as I sat down in the minibus to Kruger!

"If you like camping, you'll enjoy this more than we did."

Food service staff were very nice, food was pretty good, and our driver the first night was very knowledgeable.

The AC at our first location was strong and good.

"3 days on Safari"

It was good how the drive was broken up by relevant activities so you weren't sitting for too long. Our day in Kruger was just perfect, saw everything we needed to.

I went on a 5 days Lodge/Treehouse Kruger Park Safari operated by Viva Safari. Everything about the trip was amazing! All the staff knows you and refers to you by name. They were so efficient! The days were filled with activities and adventures and everything was so well organized - there was no wasted time waiting.

The guides were very knowledgeable and always happy to answer questions (not only related to the safari).

I enjoyed to food and having meals outside in the nature (In the winter season, bring warm clothes!)

We booked a 4 day Safari trip and stayed at Marc's tree house camp for 2 nights and it was excellent.

The room was big and the staff was very helpful but not the most comfortable place to walk around with a suitcase.

he Safari trips were amazing, got to see giraffes at camp and the other big 5 in our Safari trip.

Excellent experience.
