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.


Name: Tinga Lodge

Lion Sands Game Reserve is a place that enriches one’s soul. It is an extraordinary gift passed down over generations and even for those of us who have known its sweeping landscapes since birth, it remains a place of overwhelming beauty and discovery. Our family is one of the most fortunate in the world to have the privilege of being the custodians of one of Africa’s truly unspoiled wilderness areas. In the heart of the game-rich Sabi Sand Reserve and the world-renowned Kruger National Park, we have created an iconic destination.

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

“Fabulous Experience”

We were greeted warmly by Hazel, the assistant lodge manager. She was fabulous during our entire stay, as was every employee we came in contact with from game tracker, guide, dining room servers. We were so impressed that we hope to bring other couples and return next year.

“A truly wonderful experience”

It was a wonderful experience! I never though how profound an impression seeing all these beautiful animals in their natural habitat will make on me. The idea that a leopard could walk by us, at only a few feet distance, and yet that would be a very peaceful and relaxed moment was not something I could have foreseen!
