My friend and I are about to book a four day safari with Viva, staying at Tremisana Lodge. From what we've read, it seems just about perfect for our needs, and just about every reviewer who has actually used Viva or stayed at Tremisana has positive things to say. However, the feedback from the local experts on this forum, as well as some South African acquaintances, is mostly discouraging. Is it only an issue of the location (a bit far from the Kruger gate) and the fact that it is not a luxurious place? If so, we are fine with that. We just want to have a good chance to see lots of game and other flora/fauna. Does anyone have any specific reasons why Viva and/or Tremisana are not a good deal, for those of us who don't want to go it on our own and don't want to spend $1,000/day?
