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 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.
You will be picked up from your hotel in Gauteng or O. R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) and travel via the Highveld grasslands to the subtropical Lowveld. At Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balule section of the Kruger National Park, you may unwind at the bar, enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool, and relax in the beautiful tropical gardens.
You will board an open Land Cruiser for a 3-hour sunset drive, your first opportunity to experience the varied fauna and flora of Africa. You will watch the magnificent African sunset and, after dark, use spotlights to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner will be an unforgettable bush braai in the Marula Tree Boma, deep in the African bush. You continue the night drive after dinner and stay overnight in the comfortable en-suite chalet at Tremisana Game Lodge.
At sunrise, you will drive to a remote spot to enjoy a 4-hour bush walk. Your ranger will lead you through the bush at a pace you can handle. The thrill of following big animals will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, even if your ranger is adequately armed. You return to Tremisana Game Lodge for brunch.
At around 15:00, you will enjoy an afternoon game drive. You will transfer to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge where accommodation is in romantic and fascinating treehouses. Dinner will be in the open Boma. Your overnight is in your fascinating treehouse.

The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region’s 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.
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. After lunch, you drive to Tremisana.
