Traveller Reviews

  • We really enjoyed Tinga Lodge and the experience of the Tree House. The room at the lodge was great, very clean and big. The staff and guides were all great. I would definitely recommend Tinga Lodge and if someone wanted the experience of sleeping in a tree house go for it. The Lodge, staff, food, accommodations were all great.

  • We decided not to have any experience with the big five because we decided to enjoy the lodge.

"I loved the rooms at this lodge. They are huge with a nice sitting area both inside and outside. With the location by the river you can relax on your balcony and still enjoy game viewing."
