Tuningi Safari Lodge, Madikwe Game Reserve

Tuningi Safari Lodge, Madikwe Game Reserve

Tuningi is one of the few lodges in South Africa that welcomes children and in doing so, avails them of the wonders of nature, wildlife and our delicate eco-system.


The Tuningi Safari Lodge is a member of The Madikwe Collection, is Fair Trade in Tourism South Africa (FTTSA) certified and situated in the world renowned 165,000 acre malaria-free Big 5 Madikwe Game Reserve.

The private and exclusive Tuningi Safari Lodge offers both local and international guests a superior product enhanced by an impressive Big 5 safari experience.


The design brief, for the exclusive villas, was to create space by blending interiors with the bush through utilising retractable doors and windows wherever possible.

The theme of the décor is ‘Colonial African chic’ and the main thatched lodge offers a sumptuous lounge, a spacious dining room and a well-stocked bar with an impressive rim flow pool that overlooks a watering hole, all interlinked by a sweeping wooden deck that leads to the boma area.


As night sets in, lanterns and candles are lit and the mood goes from bush to baroque. Guests return from their game drive to be presented with a bush extravaganza dinner, prepared by Tuningi’s Executive Chef, in the boma with a blazing log fire to keep them warm.

Tuningi’s game rangers are of course highly qualified but more than this they have a skill for making guests feel passionate about the environment and wildlife while offering a unique opportunity for those willing to be educated on many aspects of wildlife and bush etiquette either on foot, for those brave enough, or in 4x4 open air vehicles. Lion, elephant, buffalo, white and black rhino, leopard and the rare and endangered wild dog are only some of the unique sightings to experience during your stay.

Madikwe Game Reserve is a true African success story and Tuningi proudly enhances the experience!
