  • 5 Day Budget Accommodated Treehouse Kruger Safari
    Day 1:
    Pick up from your hotel in Gauteng or Johannesburg Airport and travel via the Highveld grasslands to the subtropical Lowveld. At Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balule section of the Kruger National Park, unwind at the bar, enjoy a refreshing dip in our pool and relax in the beautiful tropical gardens. Board an open Landcruiser for a 3h Sunset Drive, your first opportunity to experience the varied fauna and flora of Africa. Watch the magnificent African sunset and, after dark, use spotlights to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner will be an unforgettable BUSH BRAAI in the Marula Tree Boma deep in the African bush. Continue the night drive after dinner and overnight in comfortable en suite chalet at Tremisana Lodge.
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 2:
    At sunrise drive to a remote spot to enjoy a 4h Bush Walk. Your ranger will lead you through the bush at a pace you can handle. The thrill of following big animals will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, even if your ranger is adequately armed. Return to Tremisana for brunch. At around 15h00 we enjoy an afternoon game drive. Transfer to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge where accommodation is in romantic and fascinating treehouses. Dinner in the open Boma. Overnight in your fascinating Treehouse.
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 3:
    Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custom-built open-sided Gameviewer. You will have an opportunity to view game without intervening glass windows and also listen to and smell the denizens of the bush. We have regular stops at picnic spots, restcamps and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi region’s open plains attract large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope that, in turn, attract many predators. In fact this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa.
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 4:
    After breakfast, we travel to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre for injured and orphaned animals and birds. You will have an opportunity to get close and personal to some of the residents, including lions and leopards. After lunch you drive to Tremisana. At around 15h00, we drive to the Big Five Tshukudu Game Reserve for an open vehicle game drive in this Big Five reserve. Return to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge for dinner and overnight.
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

    Day 5:
    Enjoy a Sunrise Walk. After breakfast, drive via the Panorama Route to see the scenic splendours including the Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon. We return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport drop-off by arrangement.
    Meals: Breakfast and Dinner


  • 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 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.

    1. Open 4 x 4 Landcruiser Game Drive, ideal for game viewing.
    2. Air-conditioned Toyota Quantums.

    Bush Braai:
    The Bush Braai is held on the first night of our safaris. We has acquired a 20 hectare property deep in Balule – in fact over 10km from the Main gate. 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.

    Kruger Park:
    Safaris in Kruger Park are conducted on nine-seater open game viewing vehicles. The open game viewers offer elevated vantage positions from where your game viewing and photographic opportunities are greatly enhanced. All our game viewing vehicles are 4 x 4 conversions with access to all roads in all weather conditions.
