Lion Sands Tinga Lodge

A perfect base to explore Kruger National Park

Situated in the south of Kruger National Park, Tinga Lodge offers sophisticated and luxurious accommodation in the shape of just nine private suites and one two-bedroom villa. The secluded suites overlook the river and benefit from a plunge pool, lounge and viewing deck, while the self-contained villa also offers a dedicated butler, field guide and safari vehicle.

By day you'll experience the exhilaration of game drives and bush walks through the world-renowned park – with one of the highest densities of wildlife per square hectare. After spotting an abundance of animals – from wildebeest, antelope and cheetah to the Big Five – retreat to the deluxe comforts of Tinga Lodge for fascinating wildlife lectures or enjoy a relaxing spa treatment with organic Africology products in your suite.

During your stay at Tinga Lodge, retreat to Tinyeleti Treehouse for a night and experience the magic of sleeping in the open air beneath the star-studded African sky – you'll make memories to last a lifetime.

Bucket list trip

From the entry to the lodge through the meals, rooms, service and friendliness of the staff, everything was top quality. The game drives showed us all the animals we could imagine. They went out of their way to find the rarest animals.

Everything from the welcoming, the food, the lodge and the service were just amazing! Truly a five star! I would recommend the Lodge without hesitation. The safari guide, Henry, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Just the best.
