So helpful with planning and great communication

I just found Viva on internet and from the beginning Patricia landau was so helpful with planning. All went smoothly on the trip with pick up and return to airports. The staff was delightful and efficient. The guides made every effort to find the animals. More big animals seen in Krueger than game reserve. Excellent way to have a short safari experience for good value

Perfect Trip-5 Days Tremisana and tents safari

Trip of the lifetime!
Saw incredible number of animals (Balule and Kruger) and had great time in general.
Included food was all homemade (fresh and great). Accommodation was clean and perfect (really liked the tents). All personnel was great. Guides incredibly knowledgable and willing to accommodate guest's requests for that perfect photo.
Incredible value for money, could not recommend Viva Safaris enough.

Amazing experience, very pleasant and fun staff and tour guides. Overall, not a single complaint.


The pickup is on time and professional.

The Staff

The staff at the Tremisana Lodge where we were staying were all of them excellent, professional, but most of all pleasant and fun. The tour guides have a lot of knowledge, but also work as entertainers, we were laughing half os the time, especially with a guide called Smiley (makes sense :) ). You also get a different tour guide on each day which is cool to see their different approaches towards animals.

The Accomodation

Very clean, comfortable beds and AC.

Well organized team resulting in a perfect experience

From the first contact and during the whole process of booking, it was very easy to communicate with them, ask their assistance and receive it in timely manner.
All the staff who shared with us at Tremisama and Marc’s Treehouse during the safari were very kind and that’s highly appreciated when you’re on vacation. The guides have a great knowledge to share and were happy with questions. I cannot avoid mentioning Victor, one of our guides at the Kruger Park, who besides knowledge also has a beautiful energy, it’s clear that he loves his job and he shared his happiness with us: it was so pleasant to wake up early to see him with a smile, full of energy and ready to drive us to the park!
When I read the program for the first time, I thought there were many things that could go wrong if they are not properly organized, but I was so happy to see that everything worked perfectly.
Don’t worry, you’re in good hands.

Excellent price and service

I had the most magical trip to Kruger National Park with Viva Safaris. It was reasonably priced and the guides were very knowledgeable. The food was also excellent and the accommodations were very comfortable. There was also a nice pool we could use. There was lots of wildlife right outside our lodge in the immediate surrounding reserve. We went to Kruger National Park for 2 day trips and that was also amazing. I saw everything I wanted to see: lions, zebras, elephants, giraffes, hippos, impalas, etc. It was incredible. They were also very organized about pickup at the airport. I was impressed by the management throughout. I highly recommend Viva Safaris for your safari holiday. It was truly the trip of a lifetime! I will never forget it! Absolutely magical!

Fantastic tour and services.

The itinerary was not only brimming with excitement but also meticulously planned to perfection. What truly stood out, however, was the impeccable service provided by the staff. Their dedication and warmth elevated the entire experience, making it not just enjoyable but genuinely memorable.

Perfect trip to Krueger National Park!

ViVa Safaris is a wonderful organisation for experiencing the beautiful sides of Krueger National Park. Starting from the booking, to the operators in the lodges to the drivers. Everyone was always accommodating, kind and open. By booking a safari trip at ViVa Safaris, travellers are on the right side! :)

Consulting, organization and acommodation were great!

Balule as a smaller reserve was great, didn't like Kruger as much as it was more a drive in a safari zoo. Tremisana and Marc's treehouse lodge have both been great places stay and very welcoming. The game drives in Balule had been more personal and Rocky our guide had very good instincts. The Bush walk at Marc's treehouse lodge was more about plants and animals' behaviours which was very interesting and added great value to the trip.
