Lion Sands Tinga Lodge

Tinga Lodge - Amongst the legends of Kruger National Park.

We are always surprised at how a visit to Tinga can completely restore our energy after just a few days. When you’re right on the Sabie River, watching the animals and surrounded entirely by bush and sky, you really feel like you’re suspended in time and removed from the world as you know it.

Tinga is an escape that everyone should enjoy at least once in their lifetime.

With just 9 luxurious suites, each located in an utterly private spot overlooking the river, guests 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.
