Our Story

This venture was born out of the founders’ passion and love for wildlife, and more specifically, the Kruger National Park.

It is our dream to share this beautiful piece of Africa with the world. Our aim is to create an oasis of peace and tranquillity while enjoying the breathtaking sunrise of Africa, the majestic call of the fish eagle and the roar of the lion.

Tingana is a safari company that operates world-class safari lodges in and around the Kruger National Park and inside the greater Kruger. Our strategy is to acquire existing lodges or to develop new lodges on prime areas bordering the Kruger National Park and within the greater Kruger. But most importantly, to offer guests at our lodges, game drives with experienced guides into the Kruger and greater Kruger.

Our guests will be blown away with an unforgettable experience in luxury accommodation and be absorbed in the tranquil atmosphere overlooking the Sabi River and Crocodile River while being visited by the big 5 and other wildlife at your leisure.
