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

We enjoyed a sunset game drive in a open-air safari vehicle with a delicious Bush Braai (BBQ) on our 1st night. The next day we had a... More

This was an awesome experience. The people were friendly, accommodating and very experienced in the needs of the guests. Kruger is a 'once in a lifetime' experience and the Lodge was a wonderful place to experience everything on offer. The range of safaris was great..... sunrise, morning walk, afternoon and sunset were all different, exciting and the range of animals... More

My family of 4 with 2 teenagers embarked on our lifetime adventure in Africa with a 4 day stay a Tremisana lodge. We were blown away by the guest house, and sat for a long time on arrival on the porch enjoying the monkeys. From the night drive and a big boma dinner under the stars, to the walking safari...

Went for the 3 night deal and had a blast. The crew is top notch, also met plenty of interesting people. The safari variety was incredible: sunrise runs, sunset drives, Bush walk, Kruger Park drive and private reserve drives. Saw plenty of animals and learned a lot from the guides. Would go back anytime!

The area was great with game viewing from the breakfast area. The rooms were nice and clean. Staff members were great and couldn't do enough to help. The location of the lodge was the best part for me, being in the Balule private reserve gave such a good safari experience. Would recommend to all

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

Hi Richard Thank you for finding time to write a great review. We are pleased that you rated your safari "incredible". What is especially fulfilling is to know that the staff took such good care of you - not only via their friendliness but also by their concern about your physical well-being in giving you blankets and a poncho when...

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
