An exceptional game drive at Tremisana Game Lodge and dinner at the Marula Tree Boma.

I am a volunteer doing community development work in Limpopo and Mpumalanga. I met the proprietor Piero Colia on a flight from Hoedspruit to Johannesburg and he invited me to contact him upon my return from the Festive Season to visit him at his lodge. He and his staff were helpful and accommodating in arranging my visit to the lodge for a game drive and dinner at the Marula Tree Boma. I would recommend my family and friends to book a tour with Viva Safaris.

Wonderful and unrepeatable experience; special and unforgettable !

I and my family spent a few days in Balule game reserve at Tremisana Lodge. The room was clean and neat and eating very good; The staff and guides are very friendly and prepared. They made a huge difference in our stay, in game viewing and in having a true contact with natural habitat. It was very exciting the bushwalk and the Kruger Park experience. Even if we stayed a few days there, we fell nostalgic for all of you e we never forget the people of Tremisana Lodge and this memorable holiday.

Novel and stimulating bushveldt experience.

All communications were clear and easy to comprehend. The service at Tremisana was impeccable and the food was five star. Accommodation upgrades had not quite been completed, but was very comfortable.
The whole experience was beyond our highest expectations, as we usually favour self-catering time share and self-drive options for our nature reserve visits. Our guide, Bongani, was extremely knowledgeable and informative. We would highly recommend these wilderness safaris to anyone, but especially to any overseas visitors who wish to become familiar with our fauna, flora and bush topography. They will be treated to an exhilarating experience, in the lap of luxury.

I had a fabulous trip on safari with my mother as part of a group of 5. Jonathan and the team were very knowledgable and enabled us to see 4 out of the big 5 among many other animals as well. Our experience of the guiding, catering and accomodation were excellent. I really hope I can return one day. Trip of a lifetime and highly recommended.

Fantastic 4 Day Safari, lodging at Tremisana Game Lodge

After a simple and informative booking process, we were collected on time as promised by our guide. The accommodation was perfect, the drives were expertly handled by our enthusiastic and professional guide James.
Our sightings were superb and we have many photographs to sift through. The Bush Walk was very interesting and educational, a great way to learn about the wildlife of Africa.
The food was superb, the highlight being our Boma braai (barbecue) on the first night.
Highly recommended, will be back as soon as we can.

Awesome Experience at Viva Safaris

We had an unbelievable time at Tremisana Lodge where we stayed for a few nights. The accommodation was great, the people were very helpful and the hospitality we received was like we were family. We saw some unbelievable sightings and the rangers were very knowledgable. I particularly enjoyed the early morning Game walks. It felt like we were really living the bush experience and I would recommend anyone who's looking to go on a safari or looking to have a break under the African sky to stop over at Viva Safari's for an unforgettable experience.
