I had a wonderful 4 day/3night safari at Tremisana Game Lodge. The staff could not have been more helpful, and the guides were exceptional. In total, I did five expeditions out from the Lodge during my stay and they were all great experiences, allowing me to see and photograph almost all of the Big 5 and many other animals as... More

I have meant to review Tremisana and Mark's Treehouse Lodge since my experience there in September of 2013. The lodging staff, owner, manager (Bongani), safari drivers and trackers did a great job. I was greeted by Bongani and given a private ride to Balule reserve when I transferred from my other Safari experience based out of Skukuza Rest Camp. Bongani... More

I have been there with 12 friends of mine in April 2014. They only accepted cash or a bank transfer through a South African bank and asked to pay half the amount for reservation. So we had to ask a friend of a friend of our friend to deliver our money. Luckily, after that was done, the whole experience had... More

Perhaps I am jaded, but ... the staff was cold, the room were adequate, and the food oh well... that said our guide was superb and the safari was super memorable. Saw a Cheetah feeding on a kill and a buffalo give birth to a calf, in addition to "sundry" animals like elephants, giraffes, impalas, kudus, blue wilde beasts, zebras,... More

We stayed there for a couple of nights this summer. It is great for safari trips. Don`t expect luxury, it`s all you can expect from an accommodation in the bush. Rooms are small, but nice and very clean (they are cleaning every day). On our first night they organized an evening drive in the bush and then we had supper... More

I had a great stay at the Tremisana Lodge in November 2014. The room was nice, very comfortable and loved the bed! - super comfy :) The food was very delicious especially dinner (3 course) which was cooked by the African ladies every night. They even did home-made bread which was soooo good. The only bit annoying thing at breakfast... More

I had an unbelievable experience at Tremisana and Marc's. Passionate guides, nice food and an impressive wooden accommodation! We had two bushwalks, an open game drive and one day at Kruger, where we saw elephants, rhinos, crocodiles, hippos and buffalos, with interesting explaining by the guides. Go there and you'll see for yourself!

When looking for a Kruger park safari we came across Viva Safaris and booked three days with them. We spent one night at Tremisana and did an evening drive with a bush braai starting from there. The lodge was nice, had all the basic amenities (and even a pool), our room was clean and roomy enough. The following day we... More

We stayed here for a night but did 2 drives and a bush walk. Adam our guide was really the coolest and did his very best to deliver whatever nature had to offer. The food was pretty good. I remember seeing a bit of wild life right outside the lodge.
