Hi Fleury

Thanks for a great and concise review.
We are pleased that you describe everything as PERFECT.
It is good to read you felt at home and that you saw the Big Five on the first day - extremely fortunate.

Be well

The 6-day safari was the highlight of our South Africa trip. The local guides were friendly, always smiling and very knowledgeable. The home-style cooking was so delicious that we gained a few pounds. The wildlife viewing both in Balule Reserve and Kruger was beyond our expectations thanks to the excellent tracking abilities of our guides (Raymund, Smiley, Lucky, Rocky, Victor, and Luke). Thank you Tremisana!

Hi Maro

Thank you for an AMAZING review !!!
We are pleased that your Viva Safaris tour was the highlight of your South African trip.
Thanks for your exceptional praise for our superb rangers and our delicious food- too bad about the weight increase!!!
I have the same problem every time I do my inspections at Tremisana, but we start our diets later !

Thank you for mentioning all your rangers by name - we are happy that your wildlife sightings were amazing and beyond your expectations .

Be well.

After having travelled for decades either on business or on private occasions the expectation for a Kruger safari were relatively high for my wife and myself. Therefore we chose Tremisana Lodge for a 6 day Safari due to their long experience and the very good feedback on various sites on the Internet.
To make it short: Our expectations were exceeded by far. The whole Tremisana team made sure we were well looked after and spoilt us rotten.
First: The game drive tours with the experienced rangers were excellent.
Second: The lodge itself with the very friendly crew, the food and the whole premesises with pool were magnificent and offered a wonderful time to wind down from the excitement of experiencing wildlife close up.
Third: The whole organisation, pick up in Joburg and the safe transportation were very well done and all in time.
We would book Tremisana Tour anytime again and recommend it to anyone looking for a well-rounded trip with a wonderful crew.

Terrific lodge with very knowledgeable guides and friendly staff. Accommodations are also fairly comfortable given it’s a safari. Nice group atmosphere with the people you go on the tours with. I would recommend this to anyone.

Hi Pierre

Thanks for your lovely review - we are pleased that you felt part of our unique bush family!

Victor fondly recalls naming you "The Big Six" and extends his best wishes.

It was good that you saw animals, big and small, and that the weather played its part in allowing you and your family to have "an unforgettable safari".

Be well.
