Traveller Reviews

  • We can say without hesitation that our experience at Narina was simply first rate. The next time we come to Africa, we would very much like to have a few more days on safari as well as spend at least a few more days in Seychelles.

  • Tinga Narina was fabulous – we saw the big 5 the first day. The staff were great – food was delicious – only small complaint was that there were issues with water a few times to our room – nothing that we could not live with.

  • Tinga Narina was unbelievable. The grounds are fantastic - elephants came right to our deck daily! The food was plentiful and terrific.

"This small and intimate lodge has a great tree house feel to it as you surrounded by 100 year old trees as well as the views of the Sabie River. Great lodge for a romantic getaway!"
