The luxurious suites give you the opportunity to escape from daily routine for a moment. Being on the riverside gives you the chance to see wildlife in their natural habitat. Furthermore, Lion Sands Tinga is located within the Lion Sands Game Reserve - the only private game reserve rooted in both the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and Kruger National Park. The Sabie River forms a natural boundary between its two sides. Tinga Lodge is on the Kruger National Park side. Relax for a moment at the poolside, or enjoy scrumptious dinners of otherworldly standards. All suites are equipped with a fully stocked minibar and spacious bedrooms. Moreover, your private luxury suite has an outdoor shower. Lion Sands is home to the Big Five and a staggering variety of other game which can be observed during your stay.

You can do so after a thrilling safari at the side of the large infinity pool or in the privacy of your own suite in your very own plunge pool. You are also most welcome to be pampered in the wellness centre: massages and other treatments will make you feel rejuvenated.

Tripadvisor comments Lion Sands Tinga Lodge

Tinga is a very, very good safari camp. An exceptional feature is the view of the nearby river from your room; this offers opportunities to view wild animals, such as elephants. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. All the staff are excellent, especially the rangers and trackers for your game drives. One unanticipated amenity was the high level of drinks and snacks offered during breaks on the game drives. Also fund were the monkeys on the property. The private pools, however, are not heated, which may be fine when the weather is very hot. The breakfasts were also very good. Do what you can to include Tinga on your African safari trip.

Tinga was incredible. I haven't seen much of kruger but I have been too other safaris around south africa and kenya, and I would definitely say Tinga is amazing. Its worth taking a look at it. We really enjoyed our beautiful rooms, and the whole service from the hotel was amazing.. Everynight we had dinner at different spots through out the hotel, which made it really unique from other luxury hotels.
