Madikwe Private Game Reserve, South Africa
Tuningi Safari Lodge is one of our favourite family-friendly properties, offering fun activities and luxurious amenities for every age. Located in the luscious Madikwe Game Reserve, this is an amazing insight into Africa’s natural beauty that the whole family can enjoy.
There are four luxury suites and two chic family suites available. All feature a double bed and phenomenal views from their private wraparound verandas and floor to ceiling glass doors. The two family suites feature two en-suite bedrooms and a separate living room.
We love the main areas, including the two gorgeous pools that look out onto the plains and the lovely open-air lounge and dining areas. Hidden in the trees, you’ll feel very secluded here, especially in the outdoor boma that sits under an ancient fig tree. Guests can now experience being on the same level as the wildlife in the superb underground hide - witnessing elephants walk right past the windows, providing a unique and up close perspective of these enormous creatures. You can capture some amazing photos of the giraffe, zebra, buffalo, impala etc. bending down to drink.
The game drives are fantastic, offering incredible sightings of the Big Five and elusive wild dog. Though children under five are not permitted, after a game drive your ranger will take the whole family on a ‘bumble’ – a small drive near the camp where children can find animals tracks and bugs. Tuningi Safari Lodge actively seeks to accommodate children, even offering them their own small boma and fire pit, as well as lots of educational activities.
