Accommodation

Tremisana Game Lodge (1 night)

Tremisana Game Lodge 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, and 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 (2 nights)

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.

Program

Day 1: Johannesburg - Balule National Reserve

Viva Safaris collects you from all hotels and guesthouses in Gauteng as well as from O. R. Tambo International Airport (JNB). You travel via farmlands to the picturesque Lowveld and on to Tremisana 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 board the open Landcruiser for a 3-hour sunset drive.

Your guide will show you various animals and birds and after darkness falls, you use spotlights to locate nocturnal species. Dinner will be an unforgettable bush braai at the Marula Tree Boma. After dinner, you continue the night drive and stay overnight in comfortable air-conditioned en-suite thatch-roofed chalets.

Day 2: Balule National Reserve

You will be awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day of unforgettable bush life. You will drive to a remote part of the Balule Game Reserve where you enjoy a 4-hour bush walk. 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, notwithstanding the presence of your armed ranger. You return to Tremisana for brunch. At around 15:00, you go on an afternoon game drive. You will transfer to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge where accommodation is in fascinating and romantic tree houses.

Day 3: Balule National Reserve - Kruger National Park (Orpen-Satara region)

You travel to the Kruger National Park where you board your open game-viewer. 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 boasts open plains and supports large herds of zebra, giraffe, and antelope that attract numerous predators. In fact, the zones you visit have the highest concentration of lions in Africa.

Day 4: Balule National Reserve - Johannesburg

You will enjoy an early morning walk accompanied by an armed ranger. You then drive to the awesome Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon. You return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport drop-off is by arrangement.
