Lion Sands Tinga Lodge

Perfect Place to Discover Kruger National Park

Tinga Lodge, a bold & sophisticated luxury Lodge, with nine private Suites each providing its’ guests with a plunge pool, lounge and deck. With one of the highest densities of wildlife per square hectare, each game drive provides a thrilling experience with an abundance of animals from wildebeest, antelope, cheetah and the famous big 5. In between game drives find out more about the animals and their habitat or enjoy a spa treatment. We highly recommend enquring about spending a night in the outdoor Tinyeleti Treehouse for that extra special occasion.

With just 9 luxurious suites, each located in an utterly private spot overlooking the river, you are treated to the ultimate African luxury experience. Each of Tinga’s suites has a bathroom with a bath and shower, separate lounge area with minibar, private plunge pool and deck, 24 hour air-conditioning and a range of luxury amenities.

Children 10 and over are welcome.

Elegant Safari

Hollyuwood FL

Not exactly roughing it! Lodges were spacious, beautiful, incredibly comfortable Staff were most accommodating, and the game drives were simply incredible. The days began very early, but it made for very leisurely breakfasts, relaxing afternoons, and then evening game drives. Abkle to get to bed early for next day's drives. Never missed TV!

Fabulous place to stay on safari. Can't say enough about the accommodations, food and experience on safari. Our "cabin" was comfortable with a deck, small pool, separate bedroom and large bathroom. When we arrived two elephants crossed the river below the dining area. What a welcome to South Africa!
