As one of the largest reserves in the country, Madikwe is managed by the State, the private sector, and the community, and as such, has many programs for sustainability and conservation of this beautiful area of South Africa. Since the re-introduction to game in 1991, over 8,500 animals have been introduced, including the now rare African wild dog.

About Tuningi Safari Lodge
Named after the Tuningi fig tree, Tuningi Safari Lodge is designed for families and caters to children of all ages. Each of the 8 Suites are secluded, accessed by a path linked to the main lodge, each with its own en-suite bathroom, fireplace for winter, and private viewing deck. There are also two swimming pools; one that is located at the main lodge, and another that is shared between two suites. Tuningi Safari Lodge is one of very few 5 star lodges in South Africa that actually welcome children of all ages on a kids program to come and experience the greatness of nature at close quarters.

Tuningi Safari Lodge Game Viewing & Activities
Game viewing with one of Tuningi Safari Lodge qualified and highly experienced ranges is precious time spent in the bush. Each day, you will be awoken at sun-rise to prepare for your morning game drive (duration 3 hours) stopping for tea/coffee and biscuits out in the bush, before returning to a sumptuous breakfast.
The rest of the day is left for you to enjoy either by the pool, or on your own private deck reading, bird watching, or making a special bush walk with one of the rangers. Lunch is served languidly on the deck, before departing on the late afternoon game drive, during which a stop is made to enjoy a sun-downer en route, and then end of another beautiful day in Africa.
