For the nostalgic, Tinga Lodge opens onto river frontage with a camp-style look reminiscent of the ‘Out of Africa’ era. But far from feeling old-fashioned, a new energy has arrived with décor that is perennially fashionable and classically romantic.
On the Kruger Park side of the reserve, Tinga is a sophisticated take on the colonial-style lodge, capturing the romance of the pioneer era while providing considerable more comfort. Nine Suites and the two-bedroom Hi’Nkweni Villa occupy private spots along the river, and each has a viewing deck and pool, in addition to the main lodge area. Hi’Nkweni also comes with its own butler, field guide, and open safari vehicle for a more exclusive bush experience.
