As a young couple not only did we find it hard to book our south african trip but hard to decide how we where going to take on our safari adventure. After some though we decided on Tingala Lodge and we where so glad we did.
Firstly, when booking, the closest airport is Phalaborwa not Johannesburg!! lol. We arrived to the very welcoming and very hospitable owners, Craig and Alison who really made our trip!!The lodge is set in the bush just adjacent to the kruger and is a perfect little home away from home.
The food, the comfort, the rooms and the experience was all amazing. We took a game drive with Craig which we highly recommend for that more personalised experience. We saw so many animals! More than expected! Including,the icing on the cake, which was the pride of lions with their cubs!
It was amazing having breakfast outside, being joined by a family of elephants two mornings in a row too!
All in all I want to urge people to stay here and enjoy Tingala as we did! You wont go wrong in the hands of the staff and all they can offer.
