Accommodation

Tremisana Game Lodge (1 night)

Tremisana is the largest and leading lodge in the Balule section of Kruger Park. It has a total of 15 chalets plus two bedrooms in the guest house. Every unit is thatched, air-conditioned, and en-suite with a shower, toilet, and basin. The rooms have a tea or coffee station. Insect-proof screens are fitted on all windows. Each bed has its own mosquito net.

There is a splash pool, open-air boma for dinners around a crackling fire, and a covered lapa overlooking a waterhole. A very beautiful luxuriant garden boasts numerous bougainvilleas, palms, and cycads which give the camp a subtropical tone.

Water features add a soothing effect and the overall feel of Tremisana Lodge is very relaxing. At night, the subdued light along the illuminated paved walkways lend a romantic and magical feel to this outstanding camp.

Marc's Treehouse Lodge (2 nights)

With seven tents, the lodge offers rustic but comfortable accommodation geared to put one in close contact with the sights, sounds, and scents of the wild. Amenities include electric fans, mosquito nets, comfortable beds, linen, towels, and soap.

It has a swimming pool, a bush bar, and a boma where meals are served. You can relax around the crackling campfire and share your impressions of the day’s wildlife trip. At the lodge, you can inhale the fresh, balmy air of the African bush veld.

Fall asleep to the gurgling of the river, interrupted by the eerie whoops of hyenas, spine-chilling wails of jackals, and the plaintive cry of the thick-tailed bushbaby. Awaken to the melodious chorus of birdsong and watch the activity of wildlife drinking at the river or at the spotlit waterhole.

Program

Day 1: Johannesburg - Balule National Reserve

You will be collected from either any hotels and guesthouses in Johannesburg or from O.R. Tambo Airport. You will travel via farmlands to the picturesque Lowveld and on to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balule Section of Kruger 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 four-hour sunset drive. Your guide will show you various animals and birds and after darkness falls, spotlights will be used to locate nocturnal species. Dinner will be an unforgettable bush BBQ at Marula Tree Boma. After dinner, continue the night drive and overnight in comfortable air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets.

Day 2: Balule National Reserve

Awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day of unforgettable bush life. Drive to a remote part of the Balule Game Reserve, where you enjoy a four-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.

Return to Tremisana for brunch. Lunch will be served in the lapa at 13:30. At around 15:00, you will go on an afternoon game drive. Transfer to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge, where accommodation is in fascinating and romantic treehouses.

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

Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custom-built open-sided Gameviewer. You will have an opportunity to view the game without intervening glass windows and also listen to and smell the denizens of the bush.

You will have regular stops at picnic spots, rest camps, and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi regions’ open plains attract large herds of zebra, giraffe, and antelope that, in turn, attract many predators. In fact, this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa.

Day 4: Balule National Reserve - Johannesburg

Enjoy a sunrise walk. After breakfast, drive via the Panorama Route to see the scenic splendors of the Blyde River Canyon with a stop at the magnificent Three Rondawels. You will return to Johannesburg in the late afternoon. Airport drop-off can done by arrangement.
