  • 9 Comfortable Luxury Suites

  • Exceptional Big Five Viewing
  • Highly Popular and Excellently Rated

Lion Sands Tinga Game Lodge is situated within a private concession in the Southern part of the Kruger National Park.  Nine contemporary spacious suites, each with a colonial flair, overlook the Sabie River from private decks. The lodge captures the romance of the pioneer days, but offers luxury in its bold and sophisticated spaces, with en-suite bathrooms, separate lounge areas and private plunge pools.

Tinga lodge combines incredible game-viewing adventures with pure comfort.  Guests can unwind with a glass of wine next to the fireplace, enjoy dining in the outdoors if desired and relax with a massage after the days outdoor activities.  

With each guests comfort in mind, special diet menus can be arranged upon advance request.  

One of the highlights of the lodge is the opportunity to overnight in a luxury tree house, under the African sky.  Perched high on stilts these ultimate bush bedrooms offer safe game viewing and a night under the stars for romantics, adventurers and solitude seekers.  These one-night adventures are booked in conjunction with your accommodation, packing an overnight bag while leaving your other belongings back in your suite at camp.
