5 Day Kruger Experience – Lodge / Treehouse

The Kruger National Park is the home of more than 500 bird species, 100 species of reptile and 150 mammal species, including the Big 5 (elephant, rhinoceros, buffalo, lion and leopard) and the endangered African wild dog. During the 5 Day Kruger Tour you will experience all those exciting things that South African nature has to offer.

DAY 1:7

You are picked up from your hotel in Gauteng or Johannesburg

Airport and travel to the subtropical Lowveld via the Highveld grasslands. We

bring you to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balule section of the Kruger

National Park, where you will have time to unwind at the bar, enjoy a

refreshing dip in our pool and relax in the beautiful tropical gardens.

Afterwards, you get your first opportunity to experience

the varied fauna and flora of Africa and watch the magnificent African sunset

on a 3h sunset drive, before we use spotlights to locate nocturnal animals in

the darkness. For dinner we provide an unforgettable bush braai in the Marula

Tree Boma deep in the African bush. After dinner the night drive continues.

You spend the night in comfortable en suite chalet at Tremisana Lodge.

DAY 2 :

We start the day with a 4h bush walk as soon as sun rises, starting at a

remote spot. A qualified ranger guides you through the bush at a pace you can

handle and we experience the thrill of following big animals together. Adrenalin

surges will come to their expense, even if your ranger is adequately armed.

Brunch is served at Tremisana Lodge at 13h30. At around 14h30 we

departure for an afternoon game drive, before then transferring to Marc’s

Treehouse Lodge to spend the night in romantic and fascinating treehouses.

Dinner is served in the open Boma.

DAY 3 :

We drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger on a custombuilt

open-sided gameviewer. There you get the chance to view

game without intervening glass windows and listen to and smell the denizens

of the bush. During the drive 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 throughout

Africa.

DAY 4 :

After breakfast, we travel to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre, where

injured and orphaned animals and birds are receive medical treatment. There

you have the opportunity to get very close to some of the centre’s residents,

including lions and leopards. After lunch we drive to Tremisana, before

heading towards the Big Five Tshukudu Game Reserve around 15h00 for high

tea. We continue the day with an open vehicle game drive in Kruger’s Big Five

reserve. In the evening you return to Marc’s Treehouse Lodge for dinner and

stay there overnight.

DAY 5 :

Start the day with a sunrise walk. After breakfast, we drive up the Panorama

Route to see the scenic splendours including the Three Rondawels and the

Blyde River Canyon. You return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport drop-off

can be arranged.
