Kruger National Park Safaris with Viva Safaris
From humble beginnings in 1991, Viva Safaris has grown to become the most sought after tour operator servicing the Kruger National Park region
We are completely self-sufficient and highly experienced….we own our lodges; we have a fleet of air conditioned mini busses that will bring you from your location in Johannesburg right to the bush; we have our own fleet of game viewing vehicles; our own rangers and trackers; our own chefs and lodge management staff and of course a range of safaris that vary from cost effective two night lodge/tent safaris to combined Kruger and Private reserve safaris where you can experience the thrill of walking in the bush amongst the Big Five of Africa – of course for those who demand the luxurious, our Fly In safaris and Luxury Lodge safaris are legendary !!! Our diversity of wildlife safari experiences easily beat those of any competitor.

We thank you for visiting our website and invite you to take a journey through our pages as the starting point to a never-to-be-forgotten African Safari !!
Viva Safaris was established in 1991 by people that love wildlife. Family-owned and wholly South African, our aim has always been to enthusiastically share that love and passion with the thousands of satisfied tourists that have been through our hands. We do not aim for exclusivity – we have made our packages accessible to a wide range of pockets.
We are aware that current tourists are a lot smarter, more price-conscious and have high expectations for their money. If one compares our tariffs to other safari operators, it is evident that our safaris are not only eminently affordable but also offer our guests a value-filled product with a personal touch. There can be no doubt that our safari products constitute the very best value for money safaris to the Kruger National Park.
Mindful of our guests’ need to share their wonderful wildlife experiences with friends and family at home, we have introduced FREE 24hr WIFI at all three lodges.
Viva Safaris is in the unique position of owning its own accommodation establishments. We are thus able to guarantee levels of excellence expected by our valued international guests. We offer a wide spectrum of products that are affordable to backpacker and bush connoisseur alike.
TREMISANA GAME LODGE is our flagship establishment and is relatively upmarket. It is the largest and leading Big Five game lodge in the Balule section of Kruger Park. We have 15 chalets as well as a 2-bedroom guesthouse. All units are en suite and airconditioned. The exquisite luxuriant gardens and water features make this camp a veritable oasis. Guests at Tremisana enjoy the best of both types of safaris : the traditional lodge operation includes a 4 hour bush walk and 4.5 hour sunset game drive on open Landcruisers including an unforgettable Bush Braai (BBQ) in the middle of wildest Africa while our guests will also enjoy full day open vehicle safaris in Kruger.
We are delighted to have received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award yet again for 2015! This makes it the 5th year in a row that Tremisana Game Lodge has received this prestigious award – and in recognition of this phenomenal achievement, TripAdvisor has included us in their “Hall of Fame”!
The wildlife viewing at the Tremisana waterhole is unbelievably good. Our camera trap has been capturing amazing shots of all the lodge’s wild visitors! Click here to see a gallery of the latest Trap Camera shots
