4 day Tremisana Lodge Kruger Safari R6995 per person sharing (US$ 880), so R 2331 pppn ( US$ 293 pppn)
Full info at http://www.krugertours.com/vvtrem4.htm
or email; info@krugertours.com
This safari is also available as a 3 or 5 day option.
All safaris depart daily, no minimum numbers. Maximum 12 per safari
Staying at Tremisana Lodge on the Balule Game Reserve, in en suite chalet style thatched rooms.
The lodge consists of 15 thatched chalets and a two bedroom guest house. Each chalet is en suite (toilet, basin and shower) and has air-conditioning, electric fans plus tea and coffee facilities.
Posted Image Posted Image
There is a splash pool, open air boma for dinners around a crackling fire and a covered lapa overlooking a waterhole. A very beautiful luxuriant garden boasts numerous bougainvilleas, palms and cycads which give the camp a subtropical tone.
There's also a hide (with ablutions) overlooking a waterhole.

Cost includes: transfers from and to Johannesburg, all game drives, game walks and activities, accommodation on a dinner, bed and breakfast basis, all Kruger National Park and game reserve entry fees.
Itinerary:
Day One : We collect our guests from all hotels, guesthouses and private homes in Gauteng as well as from Johannesburg International Airport. We travel via the Highveld farmlands to the picturesque subtropical Lowveld and onwards to Tremisana Game Lodge in the Balulue Section of the Kruger Park. During a short break, you may rest in your room, have a refreshing dip in our sparkling pool, unwind at the bar or relax in the beautiful gardens. At around 17h00 you board the open Landcruiser for a Sunset Drive. Your qualified guide will facilitate your first exciting opportunity to experience the varied African fauna and flora. Watch the magnificent African sunset, and, after darkness falls, use spotlights to locate nocturnal animals. Dinner in the Boma will be a traditional South African meal. Overnight in comfortable, air-conditioned en suite thatch-roofed chalets.

Day Two : Awaken at sunrise for a cuppa and rusks before an exhilarating day of bush experience. Drive to the mighty Olifants River, where you enjoy a four hour “ walk in the wild ”. Your experienced field guide will lead you through the bush at a pace you can handle in search of the Big Five. The thrill of following Africa’s large animals in a quest to approach close enough to take a good photo will remain with you forever. Adrenalin surges will be acute, notwithstanding the fact that your ranger is adequately armed in case of potential danger.

Return to Tremisana for brunch, after which you may swim or sleep in your airconditioned chalet. The new Lapa has extensive wildlife books and magazines. For the very keen, we offer a game-viewing Hide (with ablutions) overlooking Tremisana Dam, where animals and birds often come to drink.

At around 15h00 we drive to Tshukudu Game Reserve, where a scrumptious tea is served. We may even be joined by the tame Cheetahs ! We then go on a 3 hour Game Drive where the chances of seeing the Big Five are especially good. All the rangers are in constant radio contact and great sightings are guaranteed !

Day Three : Drive to the Orpen Gate of Kruger, where we transfer to a custom-built open-sided Gameviewer. The open vehicle allows for a total wildlife opportunity - you will not only have an amazing opportunity to view game, but also to listen to and smell the African bush and its denizens. The absence of windows and your elevated vantage position allow for excellent photographic opportunities. Your experienced guide will show you many animals and birds that frequent this wildlife paradise. We have regular stops at picnic spots, rest camps and places of interest. The Orpen-Satara-Nwanedzi regions have open plains and support large herds of zebra, giraffe and antelope that attract numerous predators. In fact, this zone has the highest concentration of lions in Africa !

Day Four : Enjoy an early morning Sunrise Drive on Balule on the open Landcruiser. After a hearty breakfast, there is an opportunity to purchase some memorabilia from our shop and take your last photos of the luxuriant lush gardens at Tremisana. We then drive to the awesome Blyde River Canyon and view the Three Rondawels. We return to Gauteng in the late afternoon. Airport dropoff by arrangement.

In this price band, I would seriously consider Governor's Camp in the Masai Mara during their green season (1st April to 30th June). They've recently upgraded their tents (very comfortable and spacious), have good guides that now the area and wildlife (including quite a few guides who are part of the BBC's Big Cat Diary team) and offer 3 activities per day (usually 3 gamedrives but walking is also possible). It's also a good time to avoid the Masai Mara crowds but still have excellent and abundant game viewing. Although the main camp is quite large, the tents are well spaced out along the banks of the Mara river.

Adults = $277 pppn (+ $70 daily park fees)
Children under 16 = $180 pppn (+ $40 daily park fees)

If there are 4 people in your group, you'll probably get a private vehicle, otherwise it will be $328 per day for a private vehicle.

These are rack rates, so it's possible to get a discount on these rates if you shop around.

Kori Adventure, what is the minimum PPPN cost of the above, does it also depend on season?

Game Warden,
the prices reported in the program are for peak season.
We apply discounts for low seaon (April and May). In low season there are good offer from lodges and prices are cheaper.
Low season is during the rain season. Rains are usually at night and never for the whole day.
The advantages are the cheap price, park are green and there is no dustin, the sky is
sometimes amazing before the rain (great photos). You can enjoy the safari and see a lot of wildlife.

Max price I have reported is for private safari PLUS accommodation program:
price per person 2800 USD (private group of 2 people) / 7 nights = 400 USD per person per night

Min price I have reported is for private safari CLASIC accommodation program:
price per person 1900 USD (private group of 6 or more people) / 7 nights = 271 USD per person per night

2 nights at Keekorok Lodge

total is US$ 1.580 pppn, child pays 50%

We've stayed at Kichwa Tembo just outside the Mara Triangle. In mid season (until June 30) the cost is about USD 320 per night, per person plus USD 80 in conservancy fees. Both the camp and conservancy fees have significantly increased since our first visit in 2010 ($230 pp/pn + $10). It's still a pretty good deal but for about the same you could also stay at little governors which is a smaller camp and does three drives a day (vs. two per day at KT).

During off season there are always good opportunities.

For those who are looking for great wildlife and great accomondation & guiding, the Masai Mara and SA/Sabi Sands are surely worth while to have a look at.

I will be back in the Mara in a couple of weeks and will pay for Governors/Il Moran Camp 350$ per day incl. park fee on a full board arrangement, an upgrade offer from Little Governors.

For the Sabi Sands during off season everybody should look at the following camps/lodges:

* Arathusa
http://www.arathusa.co.za/
All year round 300 - 350 $ per person sharing!

* Cheetah Plains
http://www.cheetahplains.com/
Actually there is a special offer from May to June 2012, about 340 $ per person and no single supplement.

* Nkorho
http://www.nkorho.com/
Actually app. 280 $ per person sharing valid until end of August 2012.

* Inyati
http://www.inyati.co.za/
Actually 400 $ per person sharing from May - August 2012

* Idube
http://www.idube.com/
Actually 400 $ per person sharing valid until 19th of December 2012.

Done!

Well I think Umkumbe has to be added. The best price offer in the Sabi Sands. I have not been there, but from what I have heared it is definitely the choice for people liking it more rustic & basic without compromising on great accomondation and similar wildlife & guiding as provided by other camps.

http://www.umkumbe.com/
Actually 220 $ per person sharing valid until end of December 2012. Hard to beat!

You can get under $400 per night using the 5 Rivers special, with Kwando and several other camps. I went a couple of years ago, and considering a Kwando return this December.

You certainly can although you'd have to pick the camps right and/or make longer stays to minimise transfer costs to keep the average cost under $400 per night including the transfers. However, it is doable. I did a trip last December (trip report is in the trip reports section) and booked through Safari Specialists in Maun. They were charging $350 per night for the camps in the 5 rivers deal.

Some of the camps in the 5 rivers deal don't need an air transfer (eg Lagoon to Lebala by road, or Xakanaxa to Kwara by boat) so you could get under $400 per night if you planned the itinerary right. Also, I stayed 5 nights at Kwara and it's such a big concession with so much to see that I could easily spend a whole week there.

Wilderness had a similar deal this year, called the "6 countries special" which was also $350 a night plus transfers. Again, with longer stays and careful planning to minimise transfers, you could have done something under $400 per night. They haven't yet announced whether they will repeat this for next season (last year it was only announced in June/July).

My December trip came in over $400 on average, using a combination of the two deals but I was paying a single supplement on the transfers (there was no single supplement on the accommodation but 50% surcharge on the flights). Without that I think it could have come in under (or close to) the $400 mark.
