|Tinga Private Game Lodge is situated on the banks of the
Sabie River, in the prime game-viewing area of the Kruger
National Park. Tinga has an exclusive 5000-hectare concession
within the Kruger National Park, where guests can view the
wildlife on safaris or bushwalks, while accompanied by
SANParks-accredited guides. Tinga game-viewing vehicles have
access to the entire Kruger Park road network, thus allowing
guests to view the areas of historical significance and
aesthetic beauty that the southern Kruger Park has to offer.
Legends, one of the two lodges within the Tinga concession, is
named in honour of those whose vision and foresight ensured that
one of the world's greatest natural treasures exists today.
Safaris are conducted in open vehicles, in the early morning and
late afternoon. Drives are usually 3 hours in duration depending
on game viewing and weather conditions. The Tinga
concession has 5000 hectares of exclusive traversing. This
inculdes 35km of river frontage along the Sabie and Sand rivers.
