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

My mom and I stayed at Tremisana Logde 2 weekends ago for her 50th birthday. The whole experience was amazing, the staff are just awesome (including the monkeys that are around the lodge)! This was our first safari trip and it was everything we ever imagined and more. The game drives, the dinner under the stars, the friendly and might... 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.

Stayed there just for one night, but would come back for sure. Really helpful and friendly staff, especially the nice students and trainees from IHA who prepared good food and supported us in all belongings :-) the room was very clean and the whole lodge made a good Impression including a cute pool :-)

First time we have been to a safari and these guys have done a great job! Adam, Allister and Musa have taken us out on Bush Walks or Game Drives and we had an absolutely lovely Bush BBQ one night. I would have loved to stay longer and could have gone on listening to the guys telling about the animals,... More

We were able to go on many game drives, bush walks and days in Kruger Park! The staff were incredible...our guide... More

Wonderful guides who all answered to my questions, even the creasiest ones! We had good food, very cosy rooms. The reserve is really beautiful and has this wild side with its bumpy roads, its smell of dust and flowers (I miss that already). I recommend the night drive with diner and the walk in the morning!!! You will learn a... More

As a female solo traveler I was very happy with the choice I made. Yes of course, there are ample number of safari lodges around and prices to go with what you choose. Viva safari was excellent value for money. Apart for being super lucky and seeing all the big 5, and much more the drivers/rangers on game drives were... More
