Lion Sands Tinga Lodge

Kruger National Park


Lion Sands Tinga Lodge Location Map

Experience the ultimate in luxury accommodation and an unparalleled riverside setting at Lion Sands Tinga Lodge. The lodge is located in the world famous Kruger National Park, the best wildlife reserve in Africa, on a private 5,000 hectare concession, where guests can view the wildlife on safari game drives or bush walks, whilst accompanied by experienced guides.

With only 6 guests to a game viewer and exclusive traversing on the concession, you’ll have minimal encounters with other people. You will see all of Africa’s iconic species - lion leopard, rhino, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, hippo, and zebra - along with a supporting cast of no less intriguing 137 mammal species and over 450 varieties of bird.

While you are out exploring, you will by no means be roughing it. Your game viewer has cushioned bucket seats, waterproof device holders, blankets and ponchos - and stops off in a scenic spot for drinks and snacks.

If you enjoy a bit of adventure, and want to experience the bush in its rawest form,head out on an after-breakfast bush walk, or treat yourself to a night under the stars in the Tineyeleti Treehouse. You don’t get closer to Africa than this!

The 9 exclusive Suites are set apart on a high bank up from the Sabie River and feel definitely private. Step out through your suite’s glass sliding doors onto your private deck, where dining experiences can be set up just for you, or enjoy an al fresco shower under the stars or a dip in your plunge pool. From your suite, elevated wooden pathways lead off to a spa sala and the main lodge with its bar lounge, library, poolside and boma offering spaces to share good company or spend some quiet me time.

The Hi’Nkweni (pronounced Hing Kweni) Family Villa at Tinga Lodge is an exclusive and self-contained 2 Bedroom Villa, which comes with its own safari vehicle and field guide, giving guests the flexibility to craft their own experience.

Tinga is an escape that everyone should enjoy at least once in their lifetime.

Directions For Drivers

From Johannesburg: The recommended route from Johannesburg is the N12/N4 to Nelspruit, then the R40 from Nelspruit to Hazyview. You then take the R536 from Hazyview towards Paul Kruger Gate.

If you can at this stage, please give the lodge a call on +27 (0) 13 735 8400 when you reach Hazyview so that they know approximately when to expect you at the lodge.

Enter the Kruger National Park at the Paul Kruger Gate, announcing yourselves as guests of Lion Sands, and take the main road to Skukuza Rest Camp. At the first 4 way stop, Skukuza Rest Camp will be on your left hand side and Tinga will be signposted as straight on. Carry on until you reach a T-Junction where it is signposted 'Tinga 4 km'. At the T-Junction, turn left and then at the next 4 way stop turn right, towards the river and go over the low level bridge. About 0.5 km after the bridge you turn left onto a gravel road. Once on this road drive straight until you see a sign post for Tinga Reception.

Do not get out of your car until you reach the lodge. You may see some wildlife on your way - if you do, slow down and maintain a good distance. Do not drive off-road in any circumstances.

PLEASE NOTE: The Kruger National Park prohibits the use of roads within the Park before the gates are open and once the gates are closed, therefore guests need to plan their arrival and departure times carefully. You cannot arrange to leave the Park before the gates are open, and you must ensure that you arrive at the entrance gate with sufficient time to drive through the Park to reach your destination by the time the gate closes, otherwise you may not be permitted to enter.
