Our lodging bungalow was very comfortable but what made this such an outstanding experience were the wonderful guides. We had tremendous luck seeing lions, rhinoceros, elephants, giraffe, zebra, cape buffalo, impala, kudu and more in our first 24 hours! Our guides were just as excited as we were and so very knowledgable. This is an up close and personal bush... More

What an incredible experience! I highly recommend Viva Safaris as an affordable option. I stayed in their quaint Tremisana lodge where they served home cooked meals and provided a variety of game viewing drives and walks. Plus, it's like Cheers where everyone knows your name. I believe the lodge is considered three star, but don't let that scare you away.... More

We stayed here with Viva Safaris and the drivers were really great! The accommodation was very nice, its not 5 star but its everything you need on a safari especially as we were so busy the whole time we were only in our room to sleep.

The staff here are lovely, and always there to help and make the trip as smooth as possible. The room was nice, but did have paper thin walls. The pool needed a good clean but in fairness it was winter so the pool wasn't being used. I felt very safe here, even with the elephant just behind the fence outside... More

We stayed at Tremisana Lodge and at the Treehouses in Marc's camp booked through Viva Safaris and our experience at both places is exactly the same. First of all, the game drives and the rangers are really great. But forget about the rest, it is really accommodation on the level of a school trip staying at a hostel. Shabby rooms,... More

Hi We were extremely disappointed to receive such a harsh and vitriolic review ! The fact that this is your very first review on TripAdvisor does not detract from the seriousness of your allegations. On the positive side, we thank you for your complimentary remarks about our guides and safaris. I am sorry that you found the accommodation so poor.... More

Back again! This time to introduce my dad to the Kruger and what a wonderful experience. Helpful friendly staff, well informed guides on walks and drives. We were fortunate to get some great sightings.. the 'big five' in the Kruger; a Leopard on an afternoon drive by Oliphant river, civets and a porcupine at night. Wonderful memories again.

Our stay in Termisana was perfect. The room was confortable enough, small beds but I'm quite small myself so it would just be perfect for me. Water of the shower was a bit cold though!! The pool was the best place to relax while not being on game drives, even if the water was frozen for the time of year...... More

We spent only one night here but it was a really lovely experience. Having arrived late due to traffic problems, we were taken immediately on a game drive. Worried that we may have missed out, we were surprised that the staff were willing to take us so late. We were then spoilt with a delicious brai for dinner - some... More

Kruger is a 'once in a lifetime' experience and the Lodge was a wonderful place to experience everything on offer.
