    Itinerary

    Day 1: Transfer from Johannesburg to Tremisana

    Stop At: Balule Nature Reserve, Hoedspruit, South Africa
    Board an open Landcruiser for a 3h Sunset Drive, your first opportunity to experience the fauna and flora of Africa. Watch the magnificent African sunset and, after dark, use a spotlight to view nocturnal animals. Dinner in the Marula Tree Boma will be a BUSH BRAAI. After dinner, continue with your Night Drive and overnight in en suite air conditioned chalets.
    Duration: 3 hours

    Meals included:
    • Dinner: Dinner will be an unforgettable BUSH BRAAI deep in the African bush at Marula Tree Boma.

    Accommodation included: Overnight in an airconditioned, en-suite chalet at Tremisana Game Lodge

    Day 2: Game walk and game drive

    Stop At: Balule Nature Reserve, Hoedspruit, South Africa
    At sunrise we drive to the Olifants River for a 4h Bush Walk. Your rangers will show you many secrets of the bush. Adrenalin surges will be acute even if your rangers are adequately armed. Return to Tremisana for brunch. Later you may sleep in your airconditioned chalet, swim or read wildlife magazines in our Lapa. Lunch will be served at 13h30. At 15h30 we enjoy a SUNDOWNER Game Drive. Dinner and overnight at Tremisana.
    Duration: 7 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Overnight in an airconditioned, en-suite chalet at Tremisana Game Lodge

    Day 3: Kruger National Park

    Stop At: Kruger National Park, Malalan Gate, Nelspruit 1350 South Africa
    Drive to Kruger Park in your custom-built open-sided Gameviewer. You will view game without intervening glass windows and also listen to and smell the denizens of the bush. The Orpen- Satara-Nwanedzi region has open plains that 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.
    Duration: 7 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Overnight in an airconditioned, en-suite chalet at Tremisana Game Lodge

    Day 4: Moholoholo and Game Drive

    Stop At: Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, R531, Hoedspruit South Africa
    After breakfast, we drive to Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre for orphaned and injured animals. The animals at the centre are in enclosed pens and have been rehabilitated but are not yet able to be released into the wild as they are incapable of fending for themselves.
    They serve a good purpose insofar as tourists can see that the project has successfully rehabilitated an animal that was destined to otherwise die - these animals arrive at Moholoholo as the result of being orphaned, poisoned, caught in poachers’ snares etc.
    By visiting the centre we are supporting the important conservation work they do.
    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Tshukudu Game Lodge, R40, Hoedspruit 1380 South Africa
    At around 15h00 we drive to Tshukudu Game Reserve. The chances of seeing the Big Five in this enclosed reserve are very good. Return to Tremisana for dinner and overnight.
    Duration: 3 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Overnight in an airconditioned, en-suite chalet at Tremisana Game Lodge

    Day 5: Kruger National Park

    Stop At: Kruger National Park, Malalan Gate, Nelspruit 1350 South Africa
