“TINGA LODGE IS THE BEST!”

The staff here supplies EXTRAORDINARY service. I think this place would be hard to beat. Meals are 5 star- as well as the service. Everyone who works here makes sure your stay is very Personal and Exceptional! Our ranger was Willie and he made us feel like we had been his friends forever. He was very informative, very knowledgeable and I would recommend him and our Tracker Lucas to anyone who goes to Tinga Lodge. Everyone made us feel super special on a daily basis. The grounds are beautiful, The rooms are so amazing there are not even words to describe. This place is Very Romantic! I cannot wait to go back one day!

“Was spoiled rotten at this place, truly luxury experience”

My first impression of the Lodge as I arrived was WOW. I was amazed by the decoration, the setting, the warm welcome of the staff. Everyone was going an extra mile to make sure that I was comfortable and I had everything I need. The location was phenomenal. It’s not far from Skukuza airport. It is located on the bank of the Sabie River. While you are having breakfast or lunch, you can enjoy the game by the river. The room was very spacious with ceiling to floor windows that gave a 180-degree view of the bank. The food was sublime. I couldn’t have enough of it. The fireplace in the lounge gave a very cozy feel while we had dinner. The game driver was mind-blowing. Ruvan, the ranger, was very knowledgeable and care about the environment. We have seen so many wild animals. We got very close to a bull elephant in one game drive which was the first experience to me. Thank you all for making my stay memorable.

“5-Star Safari Experience”

Wow, there are no words to describe what it’s like to go on a game drive and see these animals in real life! It’s like visiting another planet. That aside, Tinga Lodge met our expectations and then some. All of the staff are so friendly, everyone knows your name, and our guide and tracker team were incredibly knowledgeable. Not only do you get to see these incredible animals out on games drives, but every day we saw elephants, buffalo, nyala, monkeys, and other animals right on the property. Our villa was gorgeous, and housekeeping always made sure we came back to a spotless room.

“World Class Experience at World Class Tinga Lodge”

The joy and privilege of participating in a game drive while staying at Tinga Lodge are unbeatable. I stayed at the lodge for four evenings and during that time went on Safari twice a day, and each time we were treated to different experiences and different animal sightings. I understand that many guests hope to see the “Big Five” and we saw all of this and so much more. Our best-ever field guide and tracker team of Mark and Emanuel provided us the world-class safari viewing that I could never have imagined, and one that gave us such close up viewing while respecting the animal environment. Every single safari was an adventure and just lots of fun! I also appreciate that the whole safari team of trackers and field guides supported each other in finding sightings so that we had the best opportunities to see the bush wildlife. Additionally, the graciousness and service provided by the Tinga staff made this such a great experience, as did the quality and style of the rooms and the lodge. The warmth and friendliness of the staff were just the best! This was the experience of a lifetime and I am already planning the next visit!
