Lucky guests on a game drive with Viva Safaris

From humble beginnings in 1991, Viva Safaris has become the most sought after tour operator servicing the Kruger National Park. We are completely self-sufficient and highly experienced….we own our lodges; we have our own fleet of transfer and game viewing vehicles; our own rangers; our own chefs and managers. Our safaris vary from cost effective two night lodge/tent safaris to 5 star luxury lodge safaris. Our diversity of wildlife safari experiences easily beat those of any competitor.


Outstanding experience!

Our group of 5 had a wonderful safari with Viva. We did the 6-day/5-night at Tremisana and Marc's Treehouse, and thoroughly enjoyed our trip from beginning to end. We were picked up at our Johannesburg guest house on time, driven to Tremisana in a comfortable vehicle, and kept informed of activities and schedules every step of the way. We had two outstanding game drives in Kruger, as well as in two private game reserves, and a really interesting visit to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation facility. The food was both good and plentiful, and our accommodations were comfortable. The trip exceeded our expectations, and we would not hesitate to recommend Viva. You should, however, make sure you understand the different levels of accommodations they offer. Marc's Treehouse is quite rustic, and is in the bush. Wild animals wander through camp, and we were visited by both frogs and geckos in our ensuite bathroom. The treehouses aren't insulated, so there's no a/c. As long as your expectations are appropriate, you'll have an amazing time.


We had a fantastic experience with Viva Safaris. We hired Tremisana 4 days and it really was the adjusted thing, although we were left wanting for a few more days (especially my daughter). All the planned activities were as they were offered by Viva Safaris. Excellent punctuality, guides, food and accommodation. I would do it again without a doubt.Thank you to all staff.

Phantastic organization, excellent guides, different game viewing different reserve, friendly staff

A wonderful safari adventure, unforgettable, unique. Well, very soon we noticed what Charlotte meant at the welcome meeting: "You will get the real feeling of Africa.." Yes, the treehouse and especially the 1 bed with 1 blanket a bit small for 2 elderly women.... but it was part of the adventure. We enjoyed the warm nights on our terrasse with nothing but the stars above, listening to the frogs, zicades and grills with a bottle of wine, slightly shattered of the daily activities, but happy. My phone had died the 2nd day because of the power cut and I had forgotten my PIN number - how wonderful that has been! Me who has a 24 hour service with my mobile clinic, cut off completely!!! Phantastic!
Charlotte always caring that everything is well organized and everyone o.k., Victor planning the next day program, the guides so enthusiastic explaining their nature, animals, plants, the staff always friendly and with a smile on their face, everything well organized. We have been the oldest ones (and to learn how to climb onto the jeeps without looking like grandmas) and the ones with the longest stay. Luckily we found a very nice group and we have been together most of the time. In the evening interchanging information about other countries, customs, cultures,. We have been a Southafrika couple, two Japanese women and an Australian chap, and we from Germany and Austria. So even more information!
Wonderful photos are reminding me, I put quite some all over in my house.
Thank you very much again and hopefully Viva Safaries stays like this and in future will go ahead offering unforgettable, wonderful safari adventures!

Excellent 5 day safari with Viva safaris

It was an excellent 5 days safari in the big Kruger park and the nearby bush area.
It was organized by Viva safari with excellent way. We picked up at our Johannesburg hotel near the airport (Aviator at Tambo airport) in time.
We had different safaris in different places:
Big Kruger park, bush area near Kruger and private park with difference experience:
Sunset, Sunrise safaris and even a bush walk with two armed guides.
This was much better than a simple visit to Big Kruger park because it was less touristic and gave much more filling of the Wild Africa than a simple visit to the big Kruger park.
We had nice sit on open (non glass windowed) Toyota Land cruisers during our offroad trips with excellent drivers and guides. Guides were continuously communicating each other in the different vehicles to help finding the animals.
We could see the big five and even Leopard cub and Giraffes Kudus, Hippos, Crocs etc.
We stayed at Tremisana lodge which was ok for staying at a the safari.
It was excellent and I recommend this 5 day tour with Viva safaris if you want to smell the experience of wild Africa.

Tremedous stay with a very friendly and highly capable staff.

We have been on the 6 days Safari tour staying in Tremisana lodge. The organisation is absolutely perfect. I wonder how the staff is organizing this challenge because there is a coming and going of visitors every day with different stays and differant Safari trips at also different locations. The guides and drivers are highly professional people who know their job, the driving, nature and wildlife perfectly. At dinner they are sitting and eating together with the guests like a big family. Stories about their professional carrier about wildlife and even their personnel situation and their family are told and there is a real feeling of understanding and sympathy coming up. One guy, called "Yannemann" is a very talentated great storyteller a bit like Hemingway, who tells his adventures in a special, very sympathic way. The food is top, the accomodations rustique but very nice the beds and matraces perfect, equiped with mosquito nets.
What can a tourist expect more ? I really dont know.
From my side and my wife, not a single complain.
Viva Safaris, . . . . one of the top 3 experiences of holidays we ever had in our life.
