Lion Sands Tinga Lodge situated on the banks of the Sabie River in a private concession of the prime game-viewing area of the Kruger National Park. The Sabie River has the richest biodiversity of any South African river, and the Sabie River valley has the highest recorded density of leopards in Africa. The Tinga concession is 5,000 hectares of exclusive traversing along the Sabie and Sand Rivers, and sightings of the Big Five, as well as general game, are common. The area also has prolific birdlife and a wondrous variety of fauna and flora.
Lion Sands Tinga Lodge has an eclectic design mix of Afro colonial and classic gentleman’s clubs, with mounted antelope horns, Persian rugs, and fine African antiquities. The thatched cathedral-like entrance leads through to the colonial comfort of the lounge, which opens onto the massive wooden deck overlooking the Sabie River. Built around an enormous Jackalberry tree which is reputed to be over 200 years old, the deck affords magnificent views of the Sabie River, and regular sightings of game, including members of the Big Five.
Features in the suites include private plunge pools, private viewing decks, double air-conditioners, underfloor heating, heated towel rails, ceiling fans, double showers with Victorian Rose and Massage sprays, double basins, and separate toilet and bidet. There is also a satellite television and a DVD player in each suite, discretely hidden behind tasteful wooden panelling so as not to disturb the aesthetic charm of the suite.
Lion Sands Tinga Lodge main focus is to provide a quality wildlife experience in an exclusive, relaxed environment. The suites are well spaced to guarantee privacy and one can savour the bushveld ambience without fear of human disturbance. The birdsong, riverine vegetation and the flowing river enhance the mood of tranquility.
The largest game reserve in South Africa, the Kruger National Park is larger than Israel. Nearly 2 million hectares of land that stretch for 352 kilometres (20 000 square kilometres) from north to south along the Mozambique border, is given over to an almost indescribable wildlife experience. Certainly, it ranks with the best in Africa and is the flagship of the country’s national parks - rated as the ultimate safari experience.
Lying in the heart of the Lowveld is a wildlife sanctuary like no other, its atmosphere so unique that it allows those who enter its vastness to immerse themselves in the unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa.
The Kruger National Park lies across the provinces of Mpumalanga and Limpopo in the north of South Africa, just south of Zimbabwe and west of Mozambique.
