In this safari, you will stay at the Tremisana Game Lodge.

Tremisana Game Lodge

The Tremisana Game Lodge is the largest and leading lodge in this section, having a total of 15 chalets plus a two-bedroom guesthouse. It can accommodate a maximum of 40 guests. Every unit has en-suite shower, toilet, and basin, and all are air-conditioned. Every bed has its own mosquito net. A 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, elephant, 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 this outstanding camp.

Program

Day 1: Gauteng - Kruger National Park

Today, you will be picked up from your hotel in Gauteng or O. R. Tambo International Airport (JNB) and travel via the Highveld grasslands to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Kruger Park. Board an open land cruiser for a three-hour sunset drive, your first opportunity to experience the fauna and flora of Africa.

Watch the magnificent African sunset and, after dark, use a spotlight to view nocturnal animals. Dinner in the Marula Tree Boma will be a bush braai. After dinner, continue with your night drive and overnight in en-suite air-conditioned chalets.

Day 2: Olifants River - Balule

At sunrise you will be driven to the Olifants River for a four-hour bush walk. Your rangers will show you many secrets of the bush. Adrenaline surges will be acute even if your rangers are adequately armed. You will return to Tremisana for brunch.

Later, you may sleep in your air-conditioned chalet, swim, or read wildlife magazines in the lapa. A light lunch will be served, and at around 3:00 p.m., you will enjoy a four-hour drive on Balule. You will stop for sundowners and toast the splendor of Africa. Dinner and overnight will be at Tremisana.

Day 3: Kruger National Park

You will be driven to Kruger Park in your custom-built open-sided game viewer. You will game view without intervening glass windows, and also listen to and smell the denizens of the bush. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region has open plains that 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: Moholoholo Rehabilitation Center - Tshukudu Game Lodge

After breakfast, you will be driven to Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre. There, you will learn about the sterling work being done in rehabilitating injured and orphaned animals.

At around 3:00 p.m., drive to Tshukudu Game Lodge. Enjoy a three-hour game drive in the enclosed big five reserve where the chances of seeing the big five are very good. You will return to Tremisana for dinner and overnight.

Day 5: Kruger National Park

Day 6: Panorama route - Three Rondawels - Blyde Canyon - Gauteng
