Day 1 - Pickup from your guesthouse/hostel or Johannesburg Airport and . Drive to Tremisana Game Lodge where we can now do a Sunset Drive. We should arrive at Tremisana by 17h00 at the latest. After a short break we go on a late afternoon game drive .It affords our guests an opportunity to see the magnificent African sunset (and possibly toast to it with an appropriate liquid ‘Sundowner’). After dark, we will locate nocturnal animals using spotlights.
Day 2 - After breakfast, we depart for the Orpen Gate of Kruger Park. From your open Game viewer you are afforded an outstanding opportunity to fully experience Africa's wild animals. The elevated vantage position and absence of glass windows allow for truly unforgettable sight, sound and scent experiences and brilliant photographic opportunities. Spend the full day game viewing and bird watching in the company of a knowledgeable guide. Overnight in your romantic tree lodge with the sounds of the African night to lull you to sleep.
Day 3 : - Another full day of game viewing and bird watching from the open Game viewer. Your guide will use his intimate knowledge of the Park and travel along different roads in an attempt to show you the Big Five. From your open Game viewer, your chances of seeing the Big Five are greatly enhanced. Dinner and overnight at the tree lodge.
Day 4 - In the early morning, your armed ranger will attempt to approach, on foot, the resident buffalo herd that has made our tree lodge its home. After breakfast, we drive via the Blyde River Canyon to the Three Rondawels. We then return to Gauteng, arriving by 17h00 in Pretoria and 18h00 at JIA, 18h30 Jo'burg
