Being from a tiny village in Belize, it is quite rare for a person to travel to South Africa and do a Safari. I will forever be happy that my first experience in doing this was with Viva Safaris. I spent 4 days at Tremisana and it was absolutely perfect! From the moment I arrived, I felt quite comfortable and... More

Tremisana Lodge was our first night stay over on our very first visit to the Kruger area. This trip was with Viva Safaris. We had a lovely comfortable room. The gardens were well kept and very pretty. On arrival we were taken on a night safari of the camp and then off to have a late dinner at the outdoor... More

Hi Dianne Thanks for a lovely review ! We are pleased that you found your room at Tremisana comfortable and the camp grounds neat and tidy. Bongani and Mike are thrilled that you so enjoyed the Big Five Bush walk - it certainly puts us a step above operators that offer "Nature Walks". You were fortunate to see that pride... More

We arrived here with Viva Safaris. It was just lovely at first sight – an exotic little compound with ponds and tiny waterfalls, a central pool, loads of lush foliage, and the rooms as organic hut-style cabins placed in a circle throughout the garden, joined by paths and small bridges. It had a retreat-esque feel to it. Our room was... More

We did a 4-day Safari with Viva Safaris and stayed one night in this lodge. The garden with the little pool area is very beautiful. Our hut was furnished with one king size bed and two standard beds all equipped with Mosquito nets, a little wardrobe, an arm chair and an electric cattle. The bathroom had a nice big shower...

Intimate guest lodge surrounded by nature. Staff were incredibly helpful. Beautifully designed rooms to match the surrounds. Our night drive game ranger was had a vast knowledge of the bush and all its creatures. Candlelit dinner amongst the stars was the perfect way to spend our last night in this slice of heaven.

I am so pleased to read expressions such as "incredibly helpful staff", "intimate lodge", "beautifully designed rooms", "candlelit dinners among the stars " and " slice of heaven" . These suffice to convince all future tourists that they will not go wrong in booking a safari with VIVA SAFARIS. Thank... More

We stayed at TREMISANA GAME LODGE for a 5 day safari and fell in LOVE with the place! VIVA SAFARIS and TREMISANA give you EXCELLENT value for money, with a clean, comfortable and unique room - which, to our delight also had air conditioning! (something which we dread living without in the african landscape!) The bathroom was clean, neat and... More

This lodge is a perfect combination of comfort and a taste of the wild. The garden is well maintained and all sorts of birds and animals run around in the bush. My room was nice and clean and the staff there are very helpful. The only shortfall is that it's a little far from the park. -- Well it's right... More

Feb 2015. Party of 4 (two mature couples). Frequent visitors to South Africa, first time to Kruger. Took the 4 day safari. Because there were two couples, we booked the Guest House, which was icing on the cake. Selected this lodge because it is away from a lot of the managed game farms in the south of kruger.
