We stayed at Tremisana as part of a 4D3N package arranged by Viva Safaris. For the price we paid (R7995pp), it was one of the cheapest safari packages I could find on google. We were on a budget, and didn't want to pay extortionate prices. The experience was great, and nothing 'budget' about it at all. It exceeded our expectations.... More

I recently took the Viva Safari four-day trip to Kruger and I must say I had mixed feelings by the end, although, not entirely because of the company.

I recently did a safari and stayed At this lodge. This was a well deserved break. I really enjoyed myself . The staff is great and the rooms are really clean. I think the safaris were really well organised. I managed to see the big five plus a cheetah. It was really a last minute decision to go on safari... More

Our family of 4 stayed at Teminsana as part of a five-day safari and we loved Terminsana. It was beautiful and clean and our youngest child loved the monkeys that visited the lodge in the afternoons. Everything was clean and tidy and the staff were wonderful - extremely welcoming and helpful. It was good to have adequate time to relax... More

This was my second trip to Tremisana - the first one was a solo trip of around 6 years ago which was so good that I wanted to return, this time with my partner and her teenage children. A lot has changed over the last 6 years, almost all of it an improvement on what was already a first rate... More

Just back from a six day safari at Tremisana: absolutely lovely! What's so lovely about it? Here it comes: 1. Booking with Viva Safaris is a smooth process. They respond promptly to emails and we got exactly what we booked 2. The pick-up service from the airport is very convenient, when you have had a long flight. The pick up... More

The staff at Tremisana Game Lodge were very considerate and accommodating. My group needed special arrangements at the end of the trip and Alice made sure everything worked out! The trip was fun and worry-free. When my group and I first arrived, we went on a game drive. During the first hour of the drive we saw TWO LIONS (later... More

The staff of Tremisana Game Lodge did not spare any effort to give us the time of our lives watching wildlife. The variety was great. We had a sun set safari including bush braai (BBQ under the stars), a bush walk safari, a sun rise safari and several game drives in Kruger National park and a game drive in Tshukudu... More
