First time we tried the South African "Ubuntu" was in late December 2010. Our new South African family gave us Tinga as a part of "Ubuntu".
The adventure started in Johannesburg Airport. A small airplane was waiting for us just to bring us to an airstrip near Skukuza, where a Tinga ranger was waiting for us. After a short ride to Tinga, 3 days adventure was waiting ahead.
Tinga has got more to tell than the fascinating nature and game drives - the place can tell stories of South African leaders making decisions of the country after apartheid. Read about that and get the spirit of South African history.
Super friendly staff was waiting for us in the reception. We had the houses - and short after we were ready fir the first game drive. The scout and the driver made a pro team - giving us the best service and great views when we passed the river. Both Elephant and Rhino were seen.
We experienced that rangers and scouts are "hunted" by Tinga because they are supposed to be the best in business.
They gave us the feeling that we were chosen guests. Special interests were respected and the time was given - not only to the "Big Five", but also to the Birding interested in the group.
We appreciate that we had the space for alternative interests!
We had the same feeling in the Tinga Legends with the friendly and sweet staff all around the building - ready to give you a unique experiences with Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner.
The surroundings are outstanding, the peace unbelievable, the stars just waiting to be seen in the nighttime.
We loved our house - though the male Baboon gave us some early morning dramatic noise at the roof.
Maybe Tinga can be described with few words as a place with a unique history, unique nature, super friendly and pro staff, who with joined efforts gives you the feeling of being someone special.
And to be honest, who don´t like the the feeling of being someone special.
