Having stayed at so many luxury lodges, Tuningi just seems to fall short. The rooms are ok. Nothing like some of the masterpieces you get at other lodges. The food was good. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The game drives were good. All in all there are better lodges at the same price point.

Well, here we are at Tuningi yet again, our FIFTH visit - doesn't that say it all? It's really our second home in South Africa. As we enter the gates of Madikwe Game Reserve, our hearts lift. Over the bumpy roads, eyes left and right, and heading off for Tuningi. And.... there's Heidi with ever welcoming outstretched arms for that...

My husband and I recently visited Tuningi Safari Logde during our honeymoon. We felt very welcome at Tuningi Safari Lodge by their warm and hospitable staff. Despite being a luxury lodge, the relaxed atmosphere made us feel at home during our stay. The highlights for us was our time sitting on their viewing deck overlooking a waterhole. This allowed us...

My family including two year old loved this beautiful place, service and people. We fell in love with South Africa because of this experience. The amazing reception from Heidi and the elephants we immediately saw at the entrance, pool and watering hole was the most welcoming experience. The chefs were excellent with all meals prepared elegantly and extremely varied. We...

A couple of months ago we visited Tuningi Safari Lodge inside the Madikwe Game Reserve and it was truly an unforgettable experience. We were a small group of ten people, which included family and friends, and not one of us had a single complaint about this trip. From the time we arrived, the staff members were waiting for us ready...

Great lodge with opportunity to take children on the game drives with you. Babysitting also available. Rooms were attractive with fun outdoor showers. We took lodge 6/7 which can be arranged to come with a small private pool nearby which was great. Cleaning service was good, as was hospitality. Food was a little lack lustre and repetitive but acceptable. Food...

We stayed for 3 nights over the Christmas period at Tuningi. The setting is amazing and really has the wow factor. The watering hole is perhaps the best feature of this place as animals come and go all day whilst you can sit on the verandah or you can even see them from the pool. In fact we saw more...
