You will be staying for three nights at Tremisana Game Lodge, the largest and leading lodge in the Balule Section of Kruger National Park. They have a total of 15 chalets plus a two-bedroom guesthouse. It can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests. Every unit is en-suite (shower, toilet, basin) and all units are air-conditioned. Every bed has its own mosquito net. 24-hour Wi-Fi is available to all Tremisana guests.

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, elephants, 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 lends a romantic and magical flavor to the outstanding camp.

There will be regular stops at picnic spots, rest camps, and places of interest.

Your experienced ranger will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise.
