The Tinga Lodge and staff are first rate. The service was impeccable, rooms comfortable and almost luxurious. Very roomy rooms. Loved the personal plunge pool! The view was awesome from every room and all parts of the lodge. The open air feel made you feel like you were living outside. The game drivers and spotters were courteous and friendly, as... More

Traveled here with my family for a safari around Kruger. The villas are stunning and you can see an unbelievable amount of wildlife just from your back porch. Each of our villas had a plunge pool which was a fantastic touch as well. The service was on point and the food was fantastic. They take care of your every need.... More

I wanted a lesser known spot in Kruger and highly recommend this one. what a treat to be near to civilization but to feel completely out in the middle of the wilderness. great service all around in accommodation and safari experience. very comfortable and elegant rooms while you take in the gorgeous surrounding scenery.

While Tinga is close to Skukuza, the metropolis of KNP, you will not realise this, being surrounded by beautiful bushveld. You will enjoy safaris on a private road network and have the potential to view a wide variety of game. We were very lucky to see black rhino! This is a great spot in The Kruger Park , easily accessible... More

What a spectaculr lodge. Comfortable and incredibly appointed rooms along with excellent and attentive service. Going to Krueger for the safari runs then stay here where you get it all. Be comfortable while being able to see animals outside your room. The food was also very good.

Tinga Resorts has 2 properties - Legends and Narina, diagonally across the riverbank from each other, though you can't actually see the other resort. We stayed at Legends, known by staff as the main resort even though both looks identical and guests will get identical experiences from either. I should just be reviewing the resort but we packaged our entire... More

We loved Tinga. Personalized service. Amazing food and hospitality. Spacious rooms with mosquito netting that added as much to the ambience as the functionality. Our safari guides were amazing, and we went on two safaris per day. Exciting, amazing, and over the top.
