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 Game Lodge is easily accessible all year round including the rainy season.
The presence of lions, elephants, and buffalos 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 Game Lodge 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.

At sunrise, you will drive to a remote spot along the Olifants River to enjoy a 4-hour bush walk. Your ranger will lead you through the bush at a pace you can handle.

Viva Safaris has regular stops at picnic spots, rest camps, and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region’s open plains attract large herds of zebras, giraffes, and antelopes that in turn, attract many predators. In fact, this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa.
After breakfast, you will travel to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre for injured and orphaned animals and birds. You will have an opportunity to get close and personal to some of the residents including lions and leopards.
