My family (parents and 2 kids) had an incredible stay at the lodge. The staff was friendly and the food was great. Everyone was extremely hospitable in every way imaginable. Even one day when we were going to Kruger and it was raining, they gave all of us heavy wool blankets and me a poncho since I didn't have one.... More

Most of the staff was very friendly. The food was quite good (nothing super special). Of the 4 guides we had over the course of 3 days, 2 were great and the other 2 said very little or nothing about what we were seeing. The lodging at Tremisana is basic, but it has what you need to be dry and... More

Stayed at Tremisana as a pre tour to another trip and end up being the best safari that I end up taking. The staff was awesome and full of great information. Wonderful people and great food. The rooms were very comfortable.

Our stay at Tremisana was absolutely wonderful. We felt so relaxed when we left. The staff - all of them - were so friendly. The guides had a good range of knowledge & were great in making sure we got to experience everything Tremisana had to offer. A special thanks to Ray, Pretty, Rex, Luke & Andrew - you guys... More

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.

Hi Taryn Thanks for a short but really powerful review. 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
