Day 1: 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 2: “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 3: 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 4: 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.
