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.

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 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.

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 towering man-made forests and indigenous mountain bushveld; 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.
