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.


Highly reliable and organised.

No words can describe how much we loved our stay, the food, the people, everything!!!!On our arrival, we were lucky enough to spot many elephants, 2 rhinos, leopard, invited itself while we were having dinner

Everything was perfect; it was a fabulous experience

the Kruger Safari was fabulous! Everything was perfect; the staff was very professional. Tremisana loge at Balule was good
The price is very correct.

A Perfect Safari !

We had an amazing time!
The organisation was simply just perfect from the first contact with Patti until the final drop off! It's all super well organized and we really appreciated that!
All of the staff working for Viva Safaris did a great job for us to have the best tour whatsoever at the Tremisana Lodge or during the transfers as well as on the safaris.
Again, a big thanks to all of them!
We definitely recommend Viva Safaris, and hopefully we will come back to see the two last "Big Five" we are missing :-) !!

Amazing safari experience- trip of a lifetime!

Viva Safaris and Tremisana Lodge…where do I start?

My friend Molly and I were picked up in Johannesburg on Friday and, beginning with our drivers George and Solly, every single staff member we met was beyond hospitable.
We chose to stay at Tremisana instead of moving to the Treehouse or other lodge after the first night, since we didn’t want to keep packing up and moving around on the trip. I’m happy with our decision. Tremisana is peaceful and cozy, with a small pool surrounded by lush greenery and 2-3 small dining/lounging areas. It definitely felt like Africa, with monkeys popping in, large trees and plants, and colorful artwork. The room was rustic, cozy, and very clean, thanks to Audrey.

Patti was kind and helped coordinate from the main office. Rai took amazing care of us from start to finish, and the rest of the staff was like a family. Every person knew who we were, what our schedule was each day, and went out of their way to provide a great experience. It was incredible to have home-cooked meals made by Mama D. Elvis prepared a braai meal fireside under the stars our first night. Uri accommodated us at Kruger and was a wealth of knowledge on the animal kingdom. Raymond determinedly off-roaded us to a couple of rhinos followed by a pride of lions on our night drive. And last, but definitely not least, Elias (aka Smiley, aka Halala, aka Hakuna Matata) made every excursion exciting and fun. We got up close and personal with elephants and hiked at sunrise to the water to find the hippos, but were always kept safe. Elias had a big personality, educating us while making everyone laugh. He definitely made the trip memorable.

Each day had at least a few hours of activities including local game drives, a tour of the animal rehabilitation center, and a day trip to Kruger National Park. We had some pool time in the sun between activities a couple days as well. I think our 4-night booking was absolutely perfect. Any less and you may not see all the animals you want or the “big five.” And you’re definitely tired after 4-5 days in the hot sun and a bumpy vehicle, though we were still sad to leave.

Unless you want a more expensive 5-star, more sheltered accommodation, I would recommend Tremisana Lodge and Viva Safaris to anyone. I am laid back and appreciative to be able to do things like this, but do have high expectations of my travel experiences. People who travel tend to take time off work and spend a lot of money and want to enjoy these trips. My friend and I were impressed with the organization, communication and daily processes so we didn’t have to worry about anything. Thank you to the company and staff for an unforgettable lifetime memory!
