Tremisana Game Lodge was a founder member of the Balule Game Reserve. Tremisana is the largest and leading lodge in this section, accommodating a maximum of 40 guests.<br /><br />The lodge offers accommodation in chalets which are air-conditioned and feature en-suite bathrooms with showers, toilets and basins. Its proximity to the tar road means Tremisana is easily accessible all year round, including the rainy season. The presence of lions, elephant and buffalo necessitates the maintaining of an electric fence around the camp.<br /><br />Perhaps the most striking feature of Tremisana Game Lodge is the beautiful gardens. The presence of numerous bougainvillea and various palms and cycads gives the camp a subtropical ambience. Water features add a soothing effect and the overall feel of Tremisana is very relaxing. At night, the subdued light from the illuminated paved walkways lend a romantic and magical flavour to this outstanding camp. The staff members at Tremisana are all from the local villages. The supervisor, Delina Mnisi, has been with Viva Safaris for 13 years and has worked her way up from general assistant. Delina is a talented chef and her home-made bread and mouth-watering soups have made her internationally remembered.<br /><br />Most of the other lodge owners on Balule are always amazed at the excellent sightings of animals at Tremisana. Despite its relatively small size, the area around Tremisana always seems to produce something really good. We have seen all of the Big 5, namely lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalos and leopards on the property, as well as cheetahs and wild dogs. Tremisana Game Lodge can also assist with organizing sunset game drives, full day Kruger National Park tours, game walks and sunset game drives.
