Safari Holidays in South Africa

3 Day Tremisana Kruger Lodge Safari

The Tremisana Kruger Lodge Safari suits any budget and aims to offer the full wildlife safari experience at a fraction of the cost. Let us take you into the wild of South Africa!

Our Tremisana Kruger Lodge Safari includes pick-up and returns from your accommodation in central Johannesburg (or OR Tambo International Airport). Your safari expedition into Kruger National Park is enjoyed in our fully equipped 4x4 safari vehicles to give guests the best possible view and flexibility while traversing the African jungle.

Experience the best of both worlds with safaris in a private reserve as well as the Kruger National Park. Private reserves allow vehicles to drive much later into the evening to see nocturnal animals and nighttime activity, while Kruger National Park offers a large network of communication between guides, assisting the safari guide to find the rare encounters like leopards, wild dogs, and lions.

On the way back from Kruger you will stop at the Blyde River Canyon for a postcard picture of this amazing country! The Blyde River Canyon is a spectacular viewpoint on the Panorama Route, South Africa's own version of the Grand Canyon!

We recommend at least 3 days in the Kruger (including one full day) to make your trip to Kruger National Park worthwhile. The drive from Johannesburg is 5-6 hours on paved roads.


  • Collection from your hotel in Johannesburg
  • Stop at the Blyde River Canyon for an amazing view
  • Late afternoon/night safari game drive on the first day
  • Bush Braai at Marula Tree Boma
  • Morning Walk or Morning Game Drive on last day

Day 1 - Depart Johannesburg / Afternoon game drive (D)
We collect our clients from all Johannesburg hotels, guesthouses and private homes as well as from Johannesburg Airport. We travel via the Highveld farmlands to the picturesque subtropical Lowveld and on to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balule Section of the Kruger Park. After a short break during which you may unwind at the bar, have a swim or relax in the tropical gardens, we board the open Landcruiser for a 3h Sunset Drive. Your guide will show you various animals and birds and after dark, use spotlights to locate nocturnal species. Dinner will be a BUSH BRAAI in our Marula Tree Boma deep in the African bush. Overnight in comfortable air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets.

Day 2 - Full Day in Kruger National Park (B, D)
Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger Park. Your custom-built open-sided vehicle allows for a total wildlife experience – you will not only have time to view the game but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens. The absence of windows and elevated position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. The Orpen/Satara region has the greatest concentration of animals in the whole of Kruger Park. Sightings of the Big Five are guaranteed. You will have a great day of game-viewing and bird-watching in this truly outstanding wildlife paradise.

Best time to visit Kruger Park
Kruger is great year-round, though many would say that the winter season is best (May to October), because the vegetation is thinner during the period, which means you have a better chance of spotting small and elusive animals like leopards.

What to Wear
Light, cotton clothing in light tones. These work best in a hot climate. Avoid white shirts as they show dirt easily and are more visible to animals.

Ladies - If you are staying at a private lodge, you can pack one smart set of clothing, but informal for the most part. We recommend packing a support bra for game drives as they sometimes get a little rough.
It is a good idea to pack a few long-sleeved shirts and a pair of long trousers as evenings can get a bit chilly and they keep mosquito at bay.

Winter can get chilly in the morning, especially on morning game drives. Take a lightweight waterproof jacket. Shorts and t-shirt will be most comfortable around midday. The secret is to wear several layers that you can take off as it gets hotter.

Take a good pair of hiking shoes or trainers. Heavy-duty hiking boots are not needed unless you are going on a walking safari. A pair of sandals might be good for walking around the pool and lodge.

The African Sun can be quite harsh on the skin on a very hot day. You should try and take a wide brim hat to shade your eyes and the back of your neck.
