    The friendliness of the guides especially Victor and Tax. They were very funny and Red was especially knowledgeable and had tremendous experience and a lovely humour.

    Pick up was late and so had a hurried lunch and shorter stops.

    the safari and the animals of course

    nothing

    Good breakfast ,transportation from /to the hotel to Lodges

    We missed the first activity on first day because we get wrong information and the day before leaving we get just bones with sauce and rice instead for pork, there was any salad and sweet potatoes to the last table (about 10 people)

    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!

    It is basically nothing, but the aircondition in my room wasn't functioning properly.

    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.

    A ton of bugs in the tented lodge and the AC didn't effectively work. The electricity kept flickering on and off which made the lights dim and the AC shut on and off momentarily.

    Our bags were not properly transferred between locations and we didn't get them until ~ 10 pm which was extremely frustrating. We wanted to take a quick shower after a long hot day in Kruger, but didn't have new clothes to change into.

    No hair dryer at first location and with the electricity problem at the second location it was very frustrating for my wife.

    The game drive vehicle had some maintenance trouble on the drive back from Kruger which added an extra 45 minutes of stress wondering if we would make it back.

    As non-smokers, it was frustrating to stop every hour for our driver and other guests to take a 5-10 minute smoke break. The lunch break also extended an extra 30 minutes from the time we all agreed on as folks kept randomly wandering off. We obviously wanted some water/ food/ bathroom breaks too, but it was annoying to feel like we lost close 2 hours of enjoyable safari time because others weren't close to reasonably efficient with the break times.

    The wifi didn't extend to the rooms, which made it tough to post pictures for friends. Not a deal breaker, but another small frustration that added up.

    The tent was without light during the rain and far away from the reception

  • Bertine Riezebos Sweden

    December 2017, BookAllSafaris

    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.

  • Eric Houzelot France

    December 2017, BookAllSafaris

    Very professional and nice staff . Qualified rangers .

    This lodge makes you feel like in a family, in humain dimensions.

    The good was simple at the beginning . Fortunately it was better after ( I stayed 4 nights). Should cook more african dishes.

  • Rachel Challinor Great Britain

    December 2017, BookAllSafaris

    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.

    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!

    All the activities were top class

    Tent accomodation was well below expectations and trip to Kruger and back in an open truck in the rain and freezing wind left a lot to be desired. Some very disgruntled customers on that safari

    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!

    Frist night in Trimikana was perfect, nice atmosphere and good beds!

    Day after we headed to Marco's Treehouses, really cool place, but.... the 'tents'...

    That aren't tents, it was a little 'thing' with 2 beds, no place for your luggage or even walking through the tent wasn't possible.

    Good for kids, not for adults.

    We gave ourself a little upgrade because it were our last days of the holiday and we didn't want to stay end it there.

    After a little talk with Victor (really good guy) we got a bigger room (with 4 beds!! haha) and that was much better than the 'tent'

      I booked this hotel by Viva safaris and it's worth. The cottages are well furnished in domestic style, spacious and extremely clean.

      WiFi is available at lobby. The food are tasty and the staff are very friendly.

      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!)

    • Keren V

      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.

      Stayed here a couple of weeks ago. What an amazing time we had here. All staff were amazing. Clean rooms, rustic surrounds, meeting new people and the adventures, where over whelming. Each day anither new adventure. Experienced a few African massages, traveling in safari vehicles and viewing all the wildlife.
