Highlights & What to Expect

  • Heat has an impact on the activities and behavior of animals. Therefore, game drives are conducted in the mornings and afternoons, when animals are most active.
  • The area is unaffected by animal migration; wildlife viewing is of a high standard throughout the year.
  • The guides will share their vast knowledge of the environment and animals, and the whole experience of your safari at Tinga will be the source of stories and memories that will last a lifetime.
  • Relaxing spa treatments are the ideal way to relax between safari adventures.

Location & Setting

Tinga lies near the Paul Kruger entry gate to the Kruger National Park. The lodge is on a private-use concession with grand views of the Sabie River, the primary water source in this wilderness area, which attracts large animal concentrations, especially during the dry season. Skukuza Airport is close to the lodge.


The lodge only has nine private suites, with a staff complement that will ensure a comfortable stay. Each suite looks out over the Sabie River and has a lounge, private deck, plunge pool, and en suite bathroom with an outdoor shower. The luxurious bathtub also enjoys uninterrupted bush views. Pampering products like bath salts and body wash add to the relaxing indulgence.


The main lodge features double-volume central areas that open onto wooden decks, with breathtaking views of the Sabie River just a few feet below. There is a lounge, dining area, bar, library, and a boma for dining under the African night sky. The main lodge also offers a swimming pool to cool and relax during the hot summer.
