The 3-night/4-day Kruger safari tour offers guests a budget-friendly trip to South Africa’s most popular safari destinations where a real African experience doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag.

This 4 Day jam-packed safari is excellent for the traveler who wishes a higher level of comfort during their stay in the Kruger area! Stay in your comfortable chalet of the Tremisana Lodge and listen to the sounds of the wild animals at nighttime!

Highlights

  • 3 Nights in comfortable, air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets
  • 3 atmospheric dinners in the open air boma
  • Sunset drive
  • 1 Full days of game drive in Kruger NP
  • Guided morning bush walk

Day one: Johannesburg to Tremisana Game Lodge

We collect our guests from all hotels, guesthouses and private homes in Gauteng as well as from Johannesburg International Airport. We travel via the Highveld farmlands to the picturesque subtropical Lowveld and onwards to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balulue Section of the Kruger Park. During a short break, you may rest in your room, have a refreshing dip in our sparkling pool, unwind at the bar or relax in the beautiful gardens. At around 17h00 you board the open Landcruiser for a Sunset Drive. Your qualified guide will facilitate your first exciting opportunity to experience the varied African fauna and flora. Watch the magnificent African sunset, and, after darkness falls, use spotlights to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner in the Boma will be a traditional South African meal. Overnight in comfortable, air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets.

Day two: “Walk in the wild”

Awaken at sunrise for a cuppa and rusks before an exhilarating day of bush experience. Drive to the mighty Olifants River, where you enjoy a four hour “ walk in the wild ”. Your experienced field guide will lead you through the bush at a pace you can handle in search of the Big Five. The thrill of following Africa’s large animals in a quest to approach close enough to take a good photo will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, notwithstanding the fact that your ranger is adequately armed in case of potential danger.

Return to Tremisana for brunch, after which you may swim or sleep in your air-conditioned chalet. The new Lapa has extensive wildlife books and magazines. A snooze on a hammock might also do the trick! For the very keen, we offer a game-viewing Hide (with ablutions) overlooking Tremisana Dam, where animals and birds often come to drink.

At around 15h00 we drive to Tshukudu Game Reserve, where a scrumptious tea is served. We may even be joined by the tame Cheetahs! We then go on a 3 hour Game Drive where the chances of seeing the Big Five are especially good. All the rangers are in constant radio contact and great sightings are guaranteed!

Day three: Safari Drives

Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger, where we transfer to a custom-built open-sided Gameviewer. The open vehicle allows for a total wildlife opportunity – you will not only have an amazing opportunity to view game, but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens. The absence of windows and your elevated vantage position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. Your experienced guide will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise. We have regular stops at picnic spots, rest camps and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi regions have open plains and support large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope that attract numerous predators. In fact, this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa!

Day four: Kruger Park to Johannesburg

Enjoy an early morning Sunrise Drive on Balule on the open Landcruiser. After a hearty breakfast, there is an opportunity to purchase some memorabilia from our shop and take your last photos of the luxuriant lush gardens at Tremisana. We then drive to the awesome Blyde River Canyon and view the Three Rondawels. We return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport drop off by arrangement.

Tremisana Lodge

Tremisana Lodge offers budget-friendly accommodation in Big 5 safari country. The lodge is ideally located in the northern region of Mpumalanga; an easy drive from the Kruger National Park, Hoedspruit and the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and Tshukudu Game Reserve.

The private safari lodge is owned by Viva Safaris; a leading tour operator that works in close association with Moafrika Tours. Viva Safaris specialises in overland safari tours to the Kruger National Parks and premier game reserves in the region.

Tremisana Lodge was a founder member of the Balule Game Reserve; the largest and leading lodge in this section of the Greater Kruger National Park. The safari lodge accommodate up to 40 guests in 15 luxury tented chalets and a two-bedroomed guesthouse. Each room is air-conditioned with an en-suite bathroom with a shower.

The most striking feature of Tremisana Game Lodge is its spectacular bushveld garden setting; indigenous South African plants blend in seamlessly among exotic species, which includes striking bougainvillea, cycads and aloes. The lodge and gardens are protected from curious wildlife by an electric fence; but you’ll still see and hear the presence of lions, elephant, buffalo and hyena.

Guests only stay one night at Tremisana Lodge on the 4-day Kruger safari but it’s enough to soak up the soothing effect of the lodge; with romantic walks along softly illuminated pathways and the glorious sounds of birds waking up in the stunning garden setting.

Your stay at Tremisana Lodge is made even more pleasurable by members of staff from the local village who have been with Viva Safaris for more than a decade. Chef Delina Mnisi whips up mouth-watering dishes served with her famous homemade bread and hearty local vegetables and healthy salads.

Marc’s Treehouse Lodge

Marc’s Treehouse Lodge offers rustic but comfortable accommodation in safari tents and authentic African treehouses; designed to get visitors up close to the sights, sounds and scents of the wild African bush. The treehouses at Marc’s Camp are made of wood and reeds with traditional thatch roofing, blending in to the dense riverine vegetation.

Marc’s safari tents and treehouses are equipped with electric fans, mosquito nets and comfortable beds; bed linen, towels and soap are provided. Each treehouse has its own bathroom and a private deck overlooking the Klaserie River or, as the locals call it, Breakfast Dam where animals come early in the morning to drink.

Marc’s Treehouse Lodge is part of the Motlala Game Reserve which boasts 3 of the Big 5 (rhino, buffalo and leopard) and an abundance of antelope and predators. Nights time spent at Marc’s Treehouse Lodge are enriched by the calls of its local wild residents; the eerie whoops of hyena; the spine-tingling wail of jackals, the distant roar of lions and the plaintive cry of the thick-tailed bushbaby and the soft ‘whoo-whoo’ of an owl.

Birdlife is prolific at Motlala Game Reserve; expect sightings of the elusive Narina Trogon and purple-crested Touraco, and the cheeky trumpeter hornbill, Natal francolin and Natal robinchat.

Balule Big Five Reserve

Balule Big Five Reserve is a 35 000-hectare private safari concession situated adjacent to the Kruger Park, and home to the Big Five and an abundance of wildlife and birds. The reserve falls within the Greater Kruger National Park, and was established in the early 2000s when the game fences between a grouping of farms were dropped and the newly-proclaimed land was integrated into the Kruger National Park.

The beauty of Balule Big Five Reserve is the perennial Olifants River flows through the centre of the reserve for a stretch of about 20 kilometres. This abundant water supply attracts scores of game and prolific birdlife, being a rich eco-zone with lush riverine forests and bushveld.

Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre

Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is a sanctuary for injured, poisoned and orphaned wild animals and birds; with a focus on healing and rehabilitation so they can be returned to the wild. Those that can’t be set free stay on at Moholoholo and become wildlife ambassadors for conservation, helping to educate visitors on the harmful practices that endanger our precious natural resources.

Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre lies in the shadow of the majestic “Mariepskop”, a pinnacle landmark in the lush valley of Hoedspruit. It lies on a route to famous South African destinations in the Limpopo Province, including the Kruger National Park, Blyde River canyon, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Pilgrim’s Rest, Graskop and Sabie on the scenic Panoramic Route.

Some of the animals you’ll see at Moholoholo include lion, leopard, serval, cheetah, hyena aswell as an array of eagles and vultures. The most famous resident at Moholoholo is Stoffel, the cutest and naughtiest honey badger you’ll ever meet. The centre also runs a successful wildlife breeding programme so you’ll get to see a selection of cute, gorgeous “want-to-take-home” babies.

A visit to Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is fascinating but it’s also an opportunity to support an incredibly worthy cause. The centre is self-funded and relies on the generous support of corporate donors, volunteers and visitors. The Moholoholo team are very involved in the anti-rhino poaching initiatives that dominate the region where wildlife conservation runs thick in everyone’s blood.

Tshukudu Game Reserve

Tshukudu Game Reserve is a family-owned private game reserve in Hoedspruit and adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park. The popular reserve was established in 1980 by the Sussen family and was named after the Sotho word for rhino, Tshukudu.

The 5 000-hectare reserve is characterised by thick bushveld teeming with game and good numbers of the Big Five, with panoramic views of Mariepskop which is a spectacular Hoedspruit landmark and forms part of the Drakensberg Mountain.

Tshukudu Game Reserve runs a successful lion breeding project and cares for injured and orphaned wildlife. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with its cheetah ambassadors that have been raised in Tshukudu from birth.

Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves and one of South Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. Located in the north-eastern region of South Africa in the provinces of Limpopo and Mpumalanga, the reserve is 19 485 square kilometres and shares a border with Mozambique to the east and Zimbabwe to the north.

The wild bushveld region was proclaimed a protected wildlife reserve in 1898 and became South Africa’s first national park in 1927. The reserve is named after former president Paul Kruger who foresaw the urgent need to protect South Africa’s wildlife from rampant poaching. The Kruger National Park is rich in history and boasts several impressive archeological sites.

Fences were dropped between the Kruger National Park and its neighbours to create a peace park that links the Kruger National Park with the Gonarezhous National Park in Zimbabwe and the Limpopo National Park in Mozambique. This vast protected wildlife belt is known as the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.

The Kruger National Park falls within the Kruger-to-Canyon Biosphere; an area designated by UNESCO as an International Man and Biosphere Reserve, awarded for the seamless integration of man and wildlife in a region characterised by rich diversity of flora and fauna. The Kruger National Park is world-renowned as a Big Five destination (which includes elephant, buffalo, rhino, leopard and lion), its abundance of antelope and predators and prolific birdlife. In addition to incredible sightings of wildlife on a guided safari tour, the Kruger National Park is a destination purely for the rich biodiversity, and cultural and archeological heritage.

Blyde River Canyon

The Blyde River Canyon is an impressive natural landmark in South Africa and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Mpumalanga Province. It forms the northern part of the Drakensberg escarpment, stretching 25 kilometres in length and 750 metres deep in places. The canyon consists mostly of red sandstone and the sheer cliff faces glow in the evening light.

The Blyderivierpoort Dam lies at an altitude of 665 metres and at the centre of the canyon is the Three Rondavels (South African word for small huts). The Three Rondavels is a grouping of huge, round rocks that look like the traditional homes of the indigenous people of South Africa. Blyde River Canyon is the second largest canyon in Africa and regarded as one of the largest canyons on Earth, and referred to as a ‘green canyon’ as it is carpeted in a blanket of lush subtropical foliage.

The canyon is part of the world-renowned Panorama Route; which takes visitors on a scenic drive through expansive man-made forests and indigenous bush through the historical mining towns of Graskop, Pilgrim’s Rest and Sabie. Popular attractions along the route include God’s Window, the Pinnacle and Bourke’s Luck Potholes.
