I stayed at the Tremisana Lodge for 5 days with my parents. The welcome with the night drive followed by a bush braai was memorable and well organized. The Lodge itself is beautiful and the guides are amazing. Very friendly, informative, polite and they have the amazing ability to spot all kinds of animals even in the dark. Respect for... More

Hi Gobat family Thank you for the review. I am very disappointed that you found our service so poor. However I believe the review is misleading starting from the heading. You even rated the accommodation ( rooms ) 4 out of 5. The issue of drinks is not reported fairly. The clients expected free drinks - I am not sure... More

The rooms were very clean, with comfy beds and a/c. The meals were served on a patio facing the open bush so you have a chance wild animals may walk by during your meal. The pool is small but clean and refreshing from the heat .

We stayed at a hotel in Johannesburg before hand and the driver came and picked us up exactly on time as indicated o n our voucher. It was impressive considering the hectic traffic in Johannesburg. After 9 we... More

All together we had a nice experience and have enjoyed every day. We were not aware of the size of the country and the related distances. The transfer from Johannesburg takes about 6+ hours whereby the last halve will provide you with a beautiful rolling mountain scenery of the country. I got some beautiful pictures out of the car.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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 12 chalets plus a two-bedroomed guesthouse. We can sleep a maximum of 35 guests. Every unit is en suite ( shower, toilet, basin ) and all units are air-conditioned.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. ... more   less
