  • Tuningi Lodge

    Madikwe Game Reserve,

    Tuningi Lodge is situated in the world renowned Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve, a 75 000 hectare malaria-free, protected area. Bordering Botswana in the North West Province.
    Madikwe Game Reserve is a true African success story and Tuningi proudly showcases this in magnificent style!
    Tuningi is a private and exclusive lodge and offers guests superior accommodation enhanced by an impressive Big 5 safari experience.

    Situated near the Botswana border, Tuningi can be reached by car from Johannesburg in four and a half hours. For those with a wider budget, and wish to experience an exhilarating fly-in safari, Federal Air operates scheduled 50 minute charters from OR Tambo to Madikwe Game Reserve’s excellent all weather 1 500 meter gravel airstrip. The Lodge is a 20 minute complimentary transfer from the Western air strip.

    Africa’s big game abounds in the Madikwe Game Reserve. Each day brings something different, as you explore the endless fascination of Africa’s wildlife in an open, state-of-the-art Land Cruiser with a roof for sun protection in the summer months. Whether it is a leopard on the hunt, lions roaring at twilight, dung beetles going about their business, or birds building a nest – all can offer an amazing experience!

    Tuningi Safari Lodge’s game rangers are highly qualified and have sound knowledge of the fauna and flora within the Madikwe Game Reserve and pass on this knowledge and passion to guests during their game drives and walking safaris. *Subject to availability.

    There is no better way of getting closer to nature than on foot. You will be awed by the smaller aspects of the bush that are unveiled to you: animal tracks, dung facts, interesting insects, assorted trees, colourful birds and how they all come together in an intrinsic ecological web of life.

    By law children under 16 and adults over 60 years cannot participate in these walks, and any bush walks are done only on request (subject to ranger availability and season).

    After an exciting game drive, guests can relax with a sun-downer at the bar or soak up the sun next to the rim flow swimming pool, while enjoying even more game viewing at the active waterhole.

    Tuningi is one of the few five-star game lodges in South Africa that is family friendly and will enthusiastically introduce your children to the wonders of the wild, with careful regard for their safety.

    *Children between 2–12 years will pay the child rate when sharing 1 Luxury Suite with 2 full paying guests (not the Family Suite).

    Please Note: No single supplement for the first single suite confirmed in any one reservation. Second single suite or more pay a 50% supplement on the per person sharing rate.

    Regrettably, due to safety concerns, children under 6 years of age are unable to participate in game-drives (shorter kiddies game drives can be arrange after breakfast).

    Tuningi provide an excellent, educational and fun children’s program.
    Game Drives – we will allow children over five on the first game drive, giving the guide, parents and other guests the opportunity to determine if they should be allowed on the usual daily game drives, or whether they should be taken out on their own, for shorter “bumbles”. Children under the age of five will be taken on the “bumbles”.

    Children's Activities
    After breakfast, these children go on a 1-hour drive (bumble) to one of the waterholes with a ranger. Before heading off on their drive, the kids are issued with a work book (for those old enough), in which they can tick off the things they’ve seen (dung, animals, spoor, birds and trees). The one with the most ticks gets a surprise on arrival back to camp.

  • Rooms:

    4 x Luxury suites (Double, Twin or Single)
    2 x 2 Bedroom Luxury Family suites
    Suites are connected by winding walkways but separated from the next providing peace and privacy.

    The lodge has four luxury suites and two family units each consisting of two bedrooms with a lounge, kitchenette and dining room separating the two rooms. The interior is “Colonial African Chic” and the main thatched lodge offers beautiful indoor and outdoor lounges, an elegant dining room and a magnificent rim flow pool and underground hide, that overlooks an active waterhole.
    All accommodation at Tuningi have air conditioning, ceiling fans, fireplaces, en-suite bathrooms, beautiful double baths, outdoor showers and private wrap around wooden decks for enjoying the pristine bush and wildlife on view.
