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.
