We booked a 5 day safari at tremisana lodge and it was the most amazing experience, the days were well planned right from the start of the trip when we were picked up from the airport. My favourite activity was the thrilling bush walk and the sunset drive in Balule. I would definitely recommend tremisana and will be going back to try out the tree lodge

I had the most fantastic experience with a warm welcome and continued hospitality!
The meals were rustic but wholesome, healthy, and tasty!
The accommodation was clean and everything was provided including a fridge and kettle and towels.
I used the swimming pool and although small, was great to cool off in between drives.
The trackers/guides had a wealth of knowledge and expertise regarding the wildlife and environment. Everyone had a great sense of humour and it was a happy place to be!
The Safari drives were plentiful and I experienced a variety of wild animals including the white Rhino, Elephants, Giraffes and many more!
I would recommend this safari experience to anyone!
From a very happy UK lady!

Room tip: Have patience

My stay was Tremisana was absolutely perfect. From the food to the staff to all the wildlife we saw, I don’t have one negative thing to say. As a female solo traveler I was hesitant to book this trip but I’m so glad I did. I was picked up and dropped off right from my hotel/airport, always felt safe. I met so many great people along the way. Only negative thing is I wish I stayed longer than the 4 day safari.

Hi there

Thanks for an excellent review.

We are thrilled to know that your safari experience with Viva Safaris was "absolutely perfect".

It is good to know that as a solo female traveler you felt safe at all times - there is a lot of merit in our commitment to collect and drop you off from your hotel/ hostel/ airport.

Thanks for your appreciation of our food, staff and wildlife.

Please do stay for a longer period next time.

Be well.

The guides were very knowledgeable- especially Rocky, who did his best to ensure that we saw all the big 5s. Overall, a clean budget friendly lodge with friendly staff. Aside from the basic drives, we enjoyed the picnic by the river & the walking tour. Do visit & ask for Rocky!
