Tuningi Safari Lodge is set in a valley on the western side of the Madikwe Game Reserve in the North-West Province. Madikwe Game reserve is one of the largest game reserves in South Africa, traversing over 75,000 hectares of vast plains.
The lodge has four luxury suites and two family units each consisting of two bedrooms with a lounge, kitchenette and dining room separating the two rooms. The interior is “Colonial African Chic” and the main thatched lodge offers beautiful indoor and outdoor lounges, an elegant dining room and a magnificent rim flow pool that overlooks a waterhole.
All accommodation at Tuningi have air conditioning, ceiling fans, fireplaces, en-suite bathrooms, beautiful double baths, outdoor showers and private wrap around wooden decks for enjoying the pristine bush and wildlife on view.
We accommodate and cater for children of all ages and provide an excellent, educational and fun children’s program. Game Drives – we will allow children over five on the first game drive, giving the guide, parents and other guests the opportunity to determine if they should be allowed on the usual daily game drives, or whether they should be taken out on their own, for shorter “bumbles”. Children under the age of five will be taken on the “bumbles”. Babysitting services are available at R80 p/hour for children that are too young to join the game drives (subject to availability and needs to be booked in advance).
After breakfast, these children go on a 1-hour drive (bumble) to one of the waterholes with a ranger. Before heading off on their drive, the kids are issued with a work book (for those old enough), in which they can tick off the things they’ve seen (dung, animals, spoor, birds and trees). All other free time is spent drawing, clay modelling, building puzzles, swimming and relaxing by the pool. There is always a watchful eye of a nanny available, to ensure they are kept busy and safe, while the parents can relax and enjoy their stay.
At Tuningi we are passionate about kids and would love to welcome all guests and children to the most enlightening and memorable bush experience.
