Tuningi, Madikwe The Lowdown

Extraordinary Africa>South Africa>Madikwe>Tuningi

There was so much we loved about Tuningi on our safari to Madikwe: the beautiful area, eating lunch on the deck beside the waterhole, and the fantastic family atmosphere amongst the staff.

What’s Tuningi really like?

Tuningi’s eight luxury suites are just beautiful, with large four-poster beds, huge bathrooms with a tub big enough for a hippo to wallow in, and glorious outdoor showers for wonderful starlit washing. The rooms are scattered across quite a large area so generally feel pretty private, and three rooms of the lodge can be split off to form “Little Tuningi” for friends travelling together or a family safari.
Over in the main lodge there’s a pool (there’s another over at Little Tuningi- a real favourite with thirsty ellies), some very comfortable sofas that we snuggled up in for a few hours, and good wholesome food to feed us after the day’s adventures.

What can I do at Tuningi?

The real action here is on the game drives, heading out in four wheel drive vehicles for game drives in Madikwe each morning and afternoon. This area of the reserve is just wonderful with beautiful hills and hardly any other game drive vehicles around, giving a true sense of the African wilderness.

Giving back at Tuningi:

The Tuningi team are enthusiastic supporters of their local community, and have adopted a local pre-school which guests can bring gifts for via the Pack for a Purpose scheme. Even the smallest donation can make a huge difference, so just let us know if you have a little extra room in your suitcase!
