Great lodge with opportunity to take children on the game drives with you. Babysitting also available. Rooms were attractive with fun outdoor showers. We took lodge 6/7 which can be arranged to come with a small private pool nearby which was great. Cleaning service was good, as was hospitality. Food was a little lack lustre and repetitive but acceptable. Food...

We stayed for 3 nights over the Christmas period at Tuningi. The setting is amazing and really has the wow factor. The watering hole is perhaps the best feature of this place as animals come and go all day whilst you can sit on the verandah or you can even see them from the pool. In fact we saw more...

We checked into the Tuningi Lodge on september 20, 2014, and I was immediately impressed with the appearance of this Lodge in this rugged country. The Lodge was elegant, fashionable and pleasing to the eye. The suites had the kind of privacy that provided you with an outside shower, which can be liberating. From the Deck you could view the...

For the second half of our honeymoon, my husband and I were recommended Tuningi Safari Lodge. And I'm so glad we were. We saw SO MANY animals and birds. I think our final count was 23 mammals and countless, beautiful birds. After four amazing days at a different reserve in South Africa, we initially thought we were possibly overdoing it...
