    Day 1:
    We collect our clients from all hotels and guesthouses in Gauteng as well as from Johannesburg Airport. We travel via farmlands to the picturesque 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 darkness falls, we use spotlights to locate nocturnal species. Dinner will be an unforgettable BUSH BRAAI at our Marula Tree Boma. After dinner continue the Night Drive and overnight in comfortable air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets..
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 2:
    Awaken at sunrise for an exhilarating day of unforgettable bush life. Drive to a remote part of the Balule Game Reserve, where you enjoy a 4h Bush Walk. Your experienced field guide will lead you through the bush. The thrill of following Africa’s large animals until you can take a photo will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, notwithstanding the presence of your armed ranger. Return to Tremisana for brunch. At around 15h00 we go on an afternoon game drive. Transfer to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge where accommodation is in fascinating and romantic treehouses.
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 3:
    We travel to the Kruger Park where we board our open Gameviewer. The absence of windows and elevated vantage position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. You will have an amazing chance not only to view game but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens. There will be regular stops at picnic spots and rest camps. Your experienced ranger will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise. The Orpen-Satara region boasts open plains and supports large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope that attract numerous predators.

    In fact the zones we visit have the highest concentration of lions in Africa!
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 4:
    Enjoy an early morning walk accompanied by an armed ranger. We then drive to the awesome Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon. Return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport dropoff by arrangement.

  • Bush Walks:
    Our bush walks are very popular insofar as our guests are afforded a brilliant opportunity to get really close to Nature on foot. Guests may experience an acute adrenalin charge when in the presence of Big Five animals such as elephant, lion, rhino and buffalo. Guests on our Bush Walks are always accompanied by two armed rangers. Although there is no legal limit to the minimum age of participants, we are informed by the recommendations of FGASA (Field Guides Association of S.A.). FGASA recommends that the minimum age be 16. Tourists aged between 12 and 16 may be permitted to participate in the bush walks as long as their parents take full responsibility in ensuring their children strictly obey all instructions from our rangers.

    Transfers:
    Transfers to and from Gauteng to our accommodation establishments are in air-conditioned Toyota Quantums. We offer you excellent security as we conduct door-to-door collection from your homes, hotels, hostels or Oliver Tambo Airport, thus ensuring your safety. Lunchstops are made at Dullstroom. We generally leave the JHB area by 09h30 latest and return by 17h00 earliest.

    The Sunset Drive:
    The Sunset Drive affords you your first opportunity of seeing Africa’s animals. Our qualified guide will take you on our open 4 x 4 Landcruiser Game Drive. Stops will be made to photograph the stunning sunsets and to listen to the night sounds and admire the clear Southern hemisphere constellation. Spotlights are used to locate elusive nocturnal animals.

We have built a beautiful Boma under a magnificent Marula Tree which we have protected against elephants by a ring of sharp-edged rocks. We have a flush toilet and wash hand basin. Armed rangers will patrol while you enjoy a bush braai in this remote piece of Africa.

    Safaris in Kruger Park are conducted on nine-seater open game viewing vehicles.
