Tuningi Safari LodgeMadikwe Game Reserve
Tuningi Safari Lodge Location
The 5-star Tuningi Safari Lodge is set in a valley on the western side of the Madikwe Game Reserve. Tuningi Safari Lodge can accommodate 16 (sixteen) guests in exclusive bush villas and the lodge itself has been designed in such a way that it can be divided for families, intimate groups or VIPs in search of utter privacy - a concept that is unique to Tuningi. As night sets in, lanterns and candles are lit and the mood goes from bush to baroque. Guests return from their game drive to be presented with a bush extravaganza dinner, prepared by Tuningi's Executive Chef, in the boma with a cozy log fire.
