World class team and life changing experiences.
5/5

Viva safaris Safari experiences has had to be one of the nest and life-changing experiences me and my family have had experienced. From the drivers who fetched us and dropped us off, to the welcome we received as well as the professional yet fun tour guides in Nadine, Marc and luke we all had so much fun and learned so much. My highlight was witnessing a pride of lions bring down a kudu bull and eat it. You won't go wrong if you book through and with Viva safaris.

Awesome experience with Viva Safaris!
5/5

This was our 3rd time visiting Viva Safaris. We have seen it all in Tremesane from prides of Lions going on their evening hunt to troops of Elephant, many Hippos and Giraffe are spotted near and around Tremesane and the Oliphants River. One of my favourite all time experiences has to be the dinner at the Murula Boma tree and spending the night on the deck in the middle of the bush. Viva Safari's is without a doubt, our favourite bush destination.

Fantastic service and experience.
5/5

We stayed at Tremisana Lodge for 3 nights and it was fantastic. The accomodation, food and staff were all very good. We went on 4 safaris and a bush walk and saw 4 of the big 5. Only the elusive leopard was missing. Also saw lots of giraffes, zebras, hippos and crocs. The number of animals was amazing. Thanks to Pattie for her help in organizing our trip.

Outstanding, kind and friendly experience
5/5

I did a 6 day Safari tour with Viva and stayed at the Tremisana Lodge. Everything was outstanding. All the staff, the experiences, seeing such an incredible amount of wildlife, the accommodation and especially the food, all was fabulous. I enjoyed every Safari, walk, drive and visit and thank you to everyone at Tremisana for the laughs, company, caring and excitement. I 100% recommend this adventure with Viva. Tremisana Lodge you ROCK!

5/5

Accommodating staff with all your needs . I’m a type 1 diabetic and they gladly stored my insulin in the kitchen freezer overnight . The whole experience was as over my expectations . Even though they mixed up some of the activities it didn’t change how great it was ! Great value for the price , I looked everywhere Viva is the place to go . Airport transfers were safe .

Must to while in SAF - The best Kruger experience
5/5

The first week after arriving in Joburg I decided to do a 4-day tour in Kruger (as one of my lifelong wishes) And let me confess this to you - it was the best decision I've made so far and Viva Safari made it possible! I was in contact with Patti, and communication with her was excellent, she clarified everything upfront and explained all the details to me. And trust me - as the solo female traveler I had many questions :) Viva Safari driver picked me up from the hotel in Rosebank, the drive to Tremisana Lodge was comfortable and pleasant. I recommend this tour to all solo travelers as this is a very safe option and you get to meet other like-minded individuals, nobody feels alone. Even if you lose some item, the staff will do everything in their power to find and return it! Both accommodations (Tremisana and Tree House) were good value for money. The highlight of my trip was a visit to Kruger, we managed to see 4 of Big 5 and many other inhabitants of the Animal Kingdom, together with Casper - a great lion! Even though I am very pleased with 4-day tour, you can do it within 3 days w/o issues. Thank you Viva Safari for everything, I hope to repeat this experience - with you! :)

Perfect organization, all staff very well prepared and ready to go beyond!
5/5

Everything very well prepared to make the most out of our stay.

The guides went beyond to explain every detail to the kids and make the games a lot of fun for the whole family.

All the details for the activities were clearly communicated considering every constraint (kids, large groups...)
