I stayed at Tremisana lodge first before going to Marc's Treehouse Lodge. Both places are run by a company called viva safaris.the lodge is very beautiful . The gardens there are nicely kept and the pool side is very relaxing. The lodge has monkeys on the premises called vervet monkeys. they are a bit of a nuisance during meals but they add to the feel of being in the wild. the down side is that the lodge is a bit too close to the road. You do hear the occassional truck here and there. The first night we did what they call the sunset drive it was a good drive and i loved seeing the sunset . I just wish we had enough time to relax between the game drive and the time we arrived. The drive from Johannesburg to the lodge is long i must say. The next day we did the morning bushwalk. it starts very early but it is worth it. i saw some hippos and we came across rhinos as well. the guides are good. we even had a dung spitting competition. i loved it. it was good fun. i only spent a night at tremisana and then moved to the treehouse lodge.if i had known i would have just paid extra when i made my initial booking and stayed at Tremisana. The food is much better at Tremisana than Marc's Treehouse. At Tremisana the breakfast is much longer and more filling. overally i enjoyed my stay at Tremisana and thank you so much to the ladies and guides at Tremisana.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Tremisana Game Lodge was a founder member of the Balule Game Reserve. Tremisana is the largest and leading lodge in this section, having a total of 12 chalets plus a two-bedroomed guesthouse. We can sleep a maximum of 35 guests. Every unit is en suite ( shower, toilet, basin ) and all units are air-conditioned.The lodge is serviced by two excellent boreholes. Its proximity to the tar road means Tremisana is easily accessible all year round, including the rainy season. The presence of lions, elephant and buffalo necessitates the maintaining of an electric fence around the camp. Perhaps the most striking feature of Tremisana Game Lodge is the beautiful gardens. The presence of numerous bougainvilleas and various palms and cycads gives the camp a subtropical feel. Water features add a soothing effect and the overall feel of Tremisana is very relaxing. At night, the subdued light from the illuminated paved walkways lend a romantic and magical flavour to this outstanding camp. ... more less
