Situated in the beautiful Madikwe Game Reserve, Tuningi Safari Lodge provides 5-star accommodation in an exclusive and private setting.
The ‘Colonial African chic’ thatched lodge accommodates 16 guests in four spacious luxury suites and two family suites. The elegant rooms are furnished in timber with soft, warm hues giving the rooms a comfortable, organic feel. The enormous bathrooms not only have a fireplace, but an oversized bath with fabulous views and a private alfresco outdoor rock shower. They family suites are made-up of two en-suite double bedrooms, and are joined by a dining area, kitchenette, and a living room. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans cool the rooms in the heat of the day while cozy, gas fireplaces take the chill away from cold nights. Each suite has a comfortable lounge area and private wrap-around decks with views of the valley and abundant roaming wildlife. Additional amenities include a mini bar, robe, slippers, in-room safe, tea/coffee facilities, and mammal and bird guide books.
Built on Madikwe’s rolling slopes, the lodge is situated in the 75, 000 hectare Madikwe Game Reserve, one of the few reserves in southern Africa to be malaria free. It is a transition region between low-veld bushveld and the Kalahari thornveld and plays host to a tremendous diversity of fauna and flora including the black and white rhino, buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard, cheetah, and wild dog. Thanks to conservation efforts the reserve has been painstakingly restored from arid, cattle grazing land to its rich natural environment.
