Living the African dream

APRIL 2013 – Old-fashioned romance meets 21st-century attention to service and luxury at Tinga. The elevated view of the Sabie River offers excellent wildlife viewing.

Safari enthusiasts looking for an exclusive experience that celebrates the romance of the African bush in style will find that Tinga is ideal. This intimate, five-star lodge is situated in the heart of the Kruger National Park on the banks of the Sabie River and is known as much for the promise of big cat and Big Five sightings as for the attention its pays to offering superlative, discreet service and luxury. Consisting of Tinga Legends and Tinga Narina, which cater for just a handful of guests at any one time, the lodge is appreciated for its superb position overlooking the Sabie River, guaranteeing guests regular wildlife sightings throughout their visit and an elevated view of the goings-on in the heart of this wilderness area.

At Tinga, life happens at a slower, altogether more enjoyable, pace. And in keeping with its commitment to offering luxury at every turn, one of the draw cards of this contemporary-colonial-style lodge is the extensive menu of body and beauty treatments offered by its professional team in the privacy of your own suite – a massage on your private deck will revive even the most jaded of city souls.

Each of the spacious guest suites ensures you are likely to want to relax in your surrounds as much as possible. What better way to get into an Out of Africa frame of mind than by enjoying after-dinner starlit dips in your private plunge pool and lazy afternoons on your deck gazing out at the pristine bush? Wildlife enthusiasts will appreciate the focus given to providing an up-close experience with the wildlife in this exclusive private concession. A maximum of six people in a vehicle means game drives are personal affairs, while private drivers and walking guides are easily arranged.
