Tremisana game lodge

Tremisana is the largest and leading lodge in this section having a total of 15 chalets plus a two-bedroomed guesthouse. It can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests. Each room of the lodge has en-suite shower, toilet, and basin. 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 an electric fence around the camp. Perhaps the most striking feature of Tremisana game lodge is the beautiful gardens. The presence of numerous bougainvilleas, various palms, cycads gives the camp a subtropical feel. Water features add a soothing effect, making the overall feel of Tremisana very relaxing. At night, the subdued light from the illuminated paved walkways lends a romantic and magical ambiance to the camp.

Marc's treehouse lodge

Marc’s treehouse lodge offers rustic but comfortable accommodation geared to put one in close contact with the sights, sounds, and scents of the wild. The treehouses, which are made of wood and reeds under thatch, blend harmoniously into the dense riverine vegetation.

Amenities include electric fans, mosquito nets, comfortable beds, linen, towels, and soap. Each treehouse has its own private ablutions and a viewing deck overlooking the perennial Klaserie River or the “breakfast” dam where animals often come to drink.

Day 1

Safari With Us will either pick you up from your hotel or guesthouse in Gauteng or from O. R. Tambo International Airport (JNB). You will then travel via farmlands to the picturesque low veld and on to a game lodge in the Balule section of the Kruger National Park.

After a short break, during which you may unwind at the bar, have a swim, or relax in the tropical gardens, you will board the open landcruiser for a three-hour sunset wild life game drive. Your guide will show you various animals and birds and after darkness falls, you will use spotlights to locate nocturnal species. Dinner will be an unforgettable bush braai (barbecue) at the Marula Tree Boma.

After dinner, you will continue the night drive on the way back to the lodge. You will stay overnight in a comfortable air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalet.

Day 2

Awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day in the bush! You will drive to a remote part of the Balule Game Reserve, where you will enjoy a four-hour bush walk with an armed ranger. Your experienced field guide will lead you through the bush. The thrill of following Africa’s large animals until you can take a photo will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, not withstanding the presence of your armed ranger.

You will return to the bush lodge for brunch. At around 2:30 p.m., you will go on an afternoon game drive. Afterwards, you will be transferred to the tree house camp where you will have an overnight stay in one of the fascinating and romantic tree houses.

Day 3

You will drive to the Orpen area in Kruger National Park where you will enjoy a full day of exciting game viewing. The absence of windows and elevated vantage position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. You will have an amazing chance not only to view game, but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens.

There will be regular stops at picnic spots and rest camps. Your experienced ranger will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise. The Orpen-Satara region in Kruger boasts open plains and supports large herds of zebra, giraffe, and antelope, which in turn attract numerous predators. In fact, the zones you will visit have the highest concentration of lions in Africa!

Day 4

After an early morning cup of coffee or tea, you will enjoy an early morning nature walk accompanied by your guide. After a wholesome breakfast, you will drive to the awesome Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon. This is the third largest canyon in the world and you will have time to take photos from various viewing points.

Afterwards, you will drive to the quaint town of Dullstroom where you can enjoy lunch. You will return to Johannesburg in the Gauteng province in the late afternoon. Drop off by arrangement is around 4:00 p.m.

Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is located in the lowveld in the north-eastern region of South Africa and spans across two provinces, the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces. It is not only the largest national game reserve in South Africa but the most prestigious and impressive. This world-renowned park, which occupies an area of about two million hectares or 20,000 square kilometers, is home to a large variety of fauna and flora.

The Kruger Park, which boasts of the richest assortment of life forms in Southern Africa, offers one of the best safari and game viewing experiences. The park is about 360 kilometers long from north to south, about 65 kilometers wide from east to west, and about the same size as Wales. The Kruger, formerly proclaimed a national park in 1926, forms part of the Great Limpopo Frontier Park.

This massive peace park links the Kruger with the Gonarezhou National Park in Zimbabwe and with the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique. Zimbabwe lies to the north and Mozambique to the east of the Kruger Park. The Kruger Park, which is famous for its abundant wildlife, is also a world leader in advanced environmental management techniques. Several rivers flow through the Kruger in an easterly direction, including the Sabie, Olifants, Crocodile, Letaba, Luvuvhu, and Limpopo Rivers.

Testimonials

  • Review by a traveler from Johannesburg, South Africa

    "SafariWithUs took us on a fully guided tour of Soweto (South Western Townships) just outside Johannesburg, South Africa. Initially the township was home to black miners but today Soweto is home to millions of black people and it is truly a city of contrasts where poor, rich and middle class live side by side We visited a number of areas of interest including Diepkloof, Freedom Square, a Shanty town, Vilakazi street as well as the Hector Pieterson Memorial. We learnt a great deal about the countries history and the uprisings and struggle against the former apartheid regime. A guided to tour to Soweto is a real eye opener and a very meaningful experience. From Mandela house to a shanty town, from Freedom charter to the Hector Pieterson memorial - they each have their own riveting story."

    "I did a safari trip with Safari With Us and I would like to comment that the trip was simply amazing! Everything went well from the initial arrangements for the pick up to drop off. On the first morning, Thabo the driver arrived on time. The journey to Botswana was pleasant as well. At Botswana, we traveled with number one lady tour and I felt that that was the main highlight. The hospitality and warmth we felt from the vendor were simply amazing. Our tour guide, Mogo was the best ever!! He was friendly and really took the effort to take care of every one of us on the trip. The accommodation that was arranged for us was simply way above what we had expected."

    "It was an enjoyable experience with the professional and helpful tour guides, Norman and Tsolo. From pick up till drop didn't face any problems. That were also good to stop for local purchases on our way back. The ride was comfortable. Pilanesberg is a must see place for a glimpse of the big five when in South Africa and none better than these guys."

    "A friend of mine had booked for the all day wine tour, which I spontaneously decided to also do. Luckily the guide Paul was really friendly and had no problems with me joining in. The tour was really great. We visited five vineyards and tried a great selection of red and white wine. Lunch was included, which was a really tasty braai."

    "The first tour was the Cape Peninsula tour, which was all day, giving a great all round impression of this fascinating city. After everybody was collected from their accommodation, we visited Bo-Kaap, Camps Bay, drove along the beautiful Chapman’s Peak Drive, climbed up to the lighthouse at Cape Point, quickly stopped at the Cape of Good of Hope and lastly, before lunch, visited the penguins at Boulders Beach. This was definitely a highlight for me climbing over the boulders and wading through the water to see the penguins (wear shorts or bring them with you!). Lunch was traditional fish and chips in a café on the harbour at Kalk Bay, which is favoured by the locals. In the afternoon we stopped where a shark spotter sits, overlooking Muizenberg beach, before heading off to the vineyard Constantia Valley, where it is optional to do the wine tasting for an additional R45. Overall, this trip was well worth doing."

    "10/10 for "Safari with us"! What an amazing experience... Pilanesburg was fantastic, I saw a huge variety of wildlife including Lions, Rhinos and so much more. Huge thanks to Dennis (the safari with us guide), it has been a real pleasure to spend time with him & benefit from his knowledge of the park and local area. The camping, braai and star-lit sky all added to this truly unforgettable experience."
