Tuningi Safari Lodge | Madikwe Game Reserve

5 Star Madikwe Game Reserve image

Tuningi is a stunning game lodge set in a valley in western section of Madikwe. It accommodates 16 people in double volume, free standing thatched rooms that all have their own private decks as well as beautiful interiors. Madikwe Game Reserve is a true African success story and Tuningi proudly enhances the experience! Tuningi Safari Lodge stands apart from most other five star game lodges in that children of all ages are accepted and there are two family suites in which parents and their children can be accommodated in their own rooms but are all under one roof with an enormous living area and deck too. There is also the option of Children’s game drives. The Lodge offers all the sumptuousness of a five star lodge as well as a warm and relaxed atmosphere, delicious food and fabulous game drives.

TUNINGI – MAIN CAMP

Set in the rolling hills of the 75 000 hectare malaria-free ‘Big 5’ Madikwe Game Reserve, Tuningi offers a five-star African safari which is enhanced by personalised service in a friendly and relaxed environment.
This private lodge accommodates 16 guests in four Luxury and two double Family Suites.

LITTLE TUNINGI PRIVATE CAMP

Little Tuningi, accommodating only six guests in unsurpassed luxury, is part of the Main Lodge, but can be booked on an exclusive basis as stand alone accommodation, making it ideal for families and small group safaris.
This private lodge has a separate Luxury Suite and one Family Suite comprising of two en-suite bedrooms, an adjoining lounge and dining room, kitchenette, wrap-around wooden deck and a separate private pool and mini outdoor boma.

OVERLOOKING A WATERHOLE AND SOME OF THE BEST VIEWS IN MADIKWE

Tuningi Safari Lodge Combines the Wonders of the African Bushveld with the Splendours of Five Star Luxuries.
The main entertainment and reception area of Tuningi Safari Lodge overlooks an active waterhole that provides fantastic game viewing from the safety of an expansive wooden deck. The rim flow pool and comfy lounges give the lodge a sumptuous and welcoming feel.
The décor at Tuningi Safari Lodge is African-chic, with the main thatched lodge comprising of a sumptuous cosy lounge, a spacious dining room and a well-stocked bar and wine cellar
These spaces are interlinked by a sweeping wooden pool deck and walkway that leads to a boma under an ancient sprawling Fig Tree, from which Tuningi derives its name. This boma deck is perfect for outdoor dinners around a blazing log fire, where you can see and hear the wildlife just a few feet away.
For guests who battle to divorce themselves from technology in the bush, they are able to watch satellite TV, and connect with the “outside world” with Wi-Fi, all provided in the Tuningi lounge.

The ideal way for guests to catch up on some quiet time would be to select a book from the library and settle down in the lounge or on one of the outside decks to read, which is often highlighted by some game passing by.

Tuningi is family friendly through and through, and not only offers an endless array of activities to keep the kids entertained, but experienced baby sitters allowing some time-out for the parents.
