Overview of Lion Sands Tinga Lodge

Lion Sands Tinga Lodge is a safari lodge overlooking the Sabie River in the Kruger National Park, and is built around a 200-year-old jackalberry tree. The old world luxury lodge offers a comfortable bygone-style retreat and a welcoming family-friendly atmosphere.

Go on game drives and walks around the reserve, where you will have the opportunity to view the Big 5. Back at the lodge, you can relax on the deck or in the infinity pool, while watching the game and birds drinking at the river.

      I just love the river frontage of the main areas and the spacious suites; our warm welcome from the staff was complemented by the herd of elephants as if they were there just to greet us - so special!
