For us, Tuningi was perfect. The lodge has the most relaxed atmosphere you'll find anywhere. In part, due to the fact there's only ever a maximum of 16 guests. The lodge is tastefully decorated, including the rooms, all in keeping with the beautiful part of the world it's situated in.
The staff are always smiling and helpful, and when we arrived we had the warmest welcome from Wilma. Throughout our stay both Wilma, and her husband Christo (our ranger), looked after us. The game drives with Christo were incredible, each drive discovering something new. Just watching the Madikwe sunrise was worth getting up at 0430 for.
The food at the lodge was both delicious and generous. You certainly don't go hungry!
And it's the little touches that make a difference, such as the outside shower and private deck where you can be in the privacy of your room and potentially get a glimpse of some of the animals as they move to and fro from Tuningi's watering hole.
The hours between drives we'd relax by the pool, sit by the watering hole watching zebras, elephants, and Impala taking a drink, or sometimes take a catnap ready for the afternoon/evening drive. There's also the option to have a massage or manicure/pedicure.
If you're looking for a holiday that offers a mix of activity and relaxation, this is the place to go. The hardest thing about our stay at Tuningi was leaving.More
