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

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
