Itinerary of the Kruger Park Lodge Treehouse Accommodation Safari
Day 1: Arrival at the Affordable Kruger Park Lodge (Tremisana Lodge) in Balule Game Reserve
Start your African safari with treehouse accommodation by hopping on a shuttle, collecting you at OR Tambo International Airport as well as all hotels and guesthouses in Johannesburg ONLY. The last pick-up in Johannesburg will be up to 9:30 am (OR Tambo).
Pick-up from Hoedspruit airport (which is the closest airport to the lodge), is at any time of the day. You get ZAR 500 discount (per shuttle from/to Johannesburg not used) if you get picked-up / dropped-off at Hoedspruit Airport. Any other transfer pick-ups, will be at an additional charge and only for you (therefore more expensive).
All shuttle pick-ups are available every day of the week, 375 days a year.
We travel via farmlands and rural areas to the picturesque Lowveld and on to the affordable Game Lodge in the Balule Section of the Greater Kruger Park.
After a short break, during which you may unwind at the bush bar while trying a cold and truly South African beer or have a refreshing swim or just relax in the tropical gardens, we board the safe open game drive vehicle for an afternoon to night Game Drive. A qualified game ranger will show you many wild African animals and birds and as the sun sets and visibility becomes difficult, spotlights will be used to locate nocturnal species. A traditional South African dinner (Bush Braai) will be severed at the Marula Tree Boma. All meals according to any dietary requirements.
After dinner you will overnight in one of the comfortable air-conditioned en-suite thatch-roofed chalets that has mosquito nets.
Day 2: Full day in Kruger Park and transfer to the Kruger Park Lodge Treehouse Accommodation
Start you day with a hearty breakfast before embarking on a safari game drive to the Orpen area of the Kruger National Park, in a special manufactured safari vehicle. This open, but safe vehicle is the ideal place to take memorable and up close photographs of the African wild life.
You will have the indulgence of a trained field guide’s eye at hand to point out all the fauna and flora this paradise has got to offer.
This part of the Kruger National Park has the highest percentage population of giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and impala and therefor attract numerous lions and other predators.
