Kruger National Park, South Africa
Completely unwinding and switching off from the world is one of the greatest pleasures of an African safari, and Lion Sands Tinga Lodge truly evokes this unique ambience. Perched on the Sabie River in Lion Sands Game Reserve, this luxury lodge has the quintessential safari vibe down to a fine art.
There are only nine suites altogether. They’re all nestled in an utterly secluded spot, so you’ll feel like the only people for miles are you settle in to your cosy king size bed, or relax on the sofa and sip on a refreshing drink from your mini bar. They also feature their own expansive decking area with a plunge pool.
We love the public area’s country-home style, with lots of exposed brick, old-style furniture, dark woods, and hints of sophisticated safari décor. The lounge and dining area is great for socialising, and ending the day chatting with other travellers in the boma area is a luxury we always relish.
The lodge also has plenty of activities to enjoy too. Bird watching is best between October and April, whilst the morning and evening game drives will always grace you with fantastic wildlife sightings, and the bush walks and breakfasts are a great way to immerse yourself in Africa’s natural beauty.
