Tinga Lodge is one of four properties in the Lion Sands collection of lodges. It is pleasantly situated on the bank of the Sabie River amidst an abundance of wildlife. Our separate suite was immense and relatively simply furnished. The large veranda was equipped with two deckchairs and its own whirlpool bath. The main bath facilities were rather basic, and the separate shower area became blocked and flooded onto the bathroom floor each time we used it. There is no Wi-Fi service in the room and only limited service in the main lodge building.
All meals were served buffet-style on the main lodge’s deck. The food was good, although not particularly imaginative. Diners must be on guard against the prolific vervet monkeys, who would leap onto the table and snatch food at the slightest opportunity.
Tinga and its neighboring lodges offer a variety of wildlife safaris, beginning early in the morning and extending into the evenings. These safaris provide a unique opportunity to see a large variety of wildlife and are led by courteous and experienced rangers and trackers.
