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 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.

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.
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.
