We had the most amazing time on our first safari thanks to Tengile. Willy (our tracker) and Brett (our guide) took us out on drives and we were able to see so many wonderful and unique sightings--at one point we had an elephant with its newborn, a rhino with its baby, and a lioness its two cubs, all of them right by each other! We also stopped at really awe-inspiring places for coffee / sundowners-- that stop by the huge sycamore tree surrounded by impala and nyalas was incredible. The suites (houses, really) were impeccably designed, spacious and super comfortable-- we did not want to leave; and we even had a herd of elephants grazing right outside our pool one afternoon! The food was plentiful and delicious, and the boma dinner was a highlight of our stay. The entire staff was friendly and thoughtful; they made our stay unforgettable.

My husband and I gifted this trip to ourselves for our 50th wedding anniversary. It was truly a trip of a lifetime. Joel was our guide and Robert was our tracker. They were fabulous!! There was nothing to want for at this lodge. From the accommodations to the food, everything was exceptional. The entire staff was the best! Everyone should experience this level of service at least once in their lifetime. Thank you Tengile River Lodge for making this adventure so unforgettable!!!

We stayed at Tengile for three nights on our honeymoon. We could not have asked for a better experience. We were absolutely blown away by the room (really villa), it had everything you could think of and then some and was kept well-stocked the entire time. The staff and guides, Patricia, Caitlin, Chris, Jophet, Moses and more were fabulous. They are so knowledgeable and friendly and genuinely want each guest to have a wonderful time. We saw all of the big five as well as baby lions, a cheetah and wild dogs! The entire experience completely exceeded our expectations and we cannot wait to go again someday.

Ask for Patricia. She is the most amazing lodge manager ever. She made sure we were taken care of. And our chef!! I am blanking in her name. Incredible!!

This is a very new lodge and some kinks need to be ironed out, but overall lovely. Josh is a great guide. He is probably the most diligent guide we have ever had. My thoughts? Put him with experienced safari guests where he can really shine!! He has way too much knowledge to limit him to first timers....with all due respect. He really wants to express what he knows. Let him. Limit guests to 4 per vehicle. Take safari experience and age into account. And Tanya. You are just lovely.

We had THE MOST amazing time last month - incredible place, beautifully appointed ensuring every detail is taken care of. The suites are perfect, huge, comfortable and include elements from the local area. It feels like you are part of the outdoors and everything fits within the landscape. Gorgeous!
Our ranger extraordinaire (Matt) and tracker (Willy) were fabulous - we saw all big 5 and their babies, starting from the very first drive and when we thought it couldn't get any better than the prior sighting, we saw and enjoyed even more animals and nature. The location is magical. Thank you for sharing all your knowledge and expertise with us!
Chef Bianca is amazing - we had delicious food and treats all the time. Thomas is super attentive and took care of everything. And Selby makes the best, really best, cocktails. Try them all!
Patricia runs a smooth operation and everyone on her team is fabulous. Tanya and Saskia are always making sure guests are happy and are both fabulous too.
This was our first safari and won't be the last. Very impressed with Tengile, all the people who work there and of andBeyond. Thank you for making us feel welcomed, special and sharing with us this beautiful place where you live.
