I traveled to Tuningi with a few guests on a photographic safari and their facilities, guides and other staff were fantastic! The reserve itself is amazing with some of the best game viewing around. I will definitely be staying there again in the near future.

The food is unbelievably good and beautifully presented. The rooms are excitingly perfect with little touches of luxury that I wont reveal for fear of spoiling the surprise, and as for the game drives, well there is just so much to see. Our guide was Christo, he was as excited as us at some of the animals that we discovered,... More

We went to Tuningi for a family getaway, with 3 generations of the family. The lodge is in a great setting with a busy waterhole, and game trails leading to it. The lodge itself is lovely - very nice accommodation, and everything well maintained. We had a family suite for some of the group with the rest of the group... More

Not only is Madikwe Game Reserve a fantastic place to see the Big 5 and so many other animals, it's really the friendliness and terrific service of the staff at Tuningi and the high quality and variety of food that makes this location exceptionally good.

We area family of three and have travelled extensively in Africa. The experience at Tuningi surpassed them all. Not just the superb game viewing and in our case wild dog sightings, but the easy home from home atmosphere. The lodge is beautifully appointed and very we'll managed. Standouts for us were Wilma and Christo for whom nothing was too much... More
