  • Bush braai at Marula Tree Boma
  • Full day in Kruger on open gameviewer

Day One

We collect our clients from all hotels, guesthouses, private homes or the airport. We drive in an air-conditioned vehicle via the Highveld farmlands to the picturesque Lowveld and Tremisana Lodge. You may rest in your air-conditioned chalet, have a quick refreshing dip in the pool, unwind at the bar or relax in the beautiful gardens. At around 17h00 we board the open Landcruiser for an exciting Big Five Sunset Drive. Your qualified guide will facilitate your first thrilling opportunity to experience the varied African fauna and flora. Watch the magnificent African sunset, and after darkness falls, use powerful spotlights to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner will be a BUSH BRAAI at the Marula Tree Boma deep in the bush. Overnight in comfortable, air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets.

Day Two

Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger Park. Your custom-built open-sided vehicle allows for a total wildlife experience – you will not only have time to view game, but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens. The absence of windows and elevated position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. The Orpen/Satara region has the greatest concentration of animals in the whole of Kruger Park. Sightings of the Big Five are guaranteed. You will have a great day of game-viewing and bird-watching in this truly outstanding wildlife paradise.

Day Three

Enjoy an early morning Sunrise Drive on the open Landcruiser. After a hearty breakfast, there is an opportunity to purchase some memorabilia from our shop and take your last photos of the lush luxuriant gardens at Tremisana. We then drive to the awesome Blyde River Canyon and view the Three Rondawels. We return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport dropoff by arrangement.


More about Tremisana Game Lodge

Kruger's Affordable Big Five Private Game Lodge

TREMISANA GAME LODGE was a founder member of the Balule Game Reserve. Tremisana is the largest and leading lodge in this section, having a total of 15 chalets plus a two-bedroomed guesthouse. We can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests. Every unit is en suite ( shower, toilet, basin ) and all units are air-conditioned. Every bed has its own Mosquito net. 24 hour WIFI is available to all Tremisana guests.

The lodge is serviced by two excellent boreholes. Its proximity to the tar road means Tremisana is easily accessible all year round, including the rainy season. The presence of lions, elephant and buffalo necessitates the maintaining of an electric fence around the camp.

Perhaps the most striking feature of Tremisana Game Lodge is the beautiful gardens. The presence of numerous bougainvilleas and various palms and cycads gives the camp a subtropical feel. Water features add a soothing effect and the overall feel of Tremisana is very relaxing. At night, the subdued light from the illuminated paved walkways lend a romantic and magical flavour to this outstanding camp.

“Top value for money Safari experience”

From the time we were picked up from the plane we were made welcome. The friendly unpretentious staff, home style food, and traditional accommodations all combined to make our Safari experience one we will remember always. Over our 4 days we met some great people from all around the world and were lucky to see all the animals on our “wish list”. Well done Viva, we fully recommend you to anyone who asks.

“Excellent experience”

Viva Safaris is amazing! This was my first trip out of the country and I was a little nervous. Viva Safaris was very good about answering questions and getting back to me in a timely manner. Everything was easy and accurate. I want to go back and use Viva Safaris again!
