We visited in February with two primary school aged children. Though a beautiful time it wasn’t the ideal season for game viewing with the vegetation very lush. Nevertheless we had a wonderful time and even saw the entire big 5 in one drive. The highlight was when got visited by elephants while in the swimming pool. My boys peppered our guide Martin incessantly with questions during game drives and he answered nearly everything with patience and in-depth knowledge. One of the most knowledgeable guides we have had having been to many game reserves. The family rooms are lovely and spacious and we spotted giraffes, wildebeest and elephants from the deck. The only slight discomfort is the shower is outdoors only though the tub is inside. There are lovely touches for kids including activity books, games and storybooks in the room. The kids club kept them busy for an interlude everyday so we could get a nap :) Food was good and they made an effort to help with our dietary requirements and separate kids meals which they loved. All in all a fantastic experience. The best part was the staff and management who were all absolutely lovely.

This has been our 15th visit to Tuningi and we are still impressed!
Is it the high quality cuisine?
Is it the professional service and very friendly staff?
Is it the extremely knowledgeable game rangers?
Is it the above standard maintenance of the rooms and lodge over the last 10 years?
Is it the 4G mobile internet reception?
Is it the small size of the lodge that creates this welcome family feeling?
Or is it the unique combination of all of the above?
It is difficult to say, really...
All we know is that we will be back!
Thanks for consistently meeting and exceeding our expectations!

This was my second visit - my wife's third - and we will no doubt return again... and again.

We spent 4 absolutely wonderful days and nights here in March 2021. The lodge is very professionally run, yet the ambience is so relaxed and inviting. All the staff are so friendly and accommodating.

The rooms are large and comfortable, and include all necessary requirements.

The game drives are great and we saw a number of special and exciting sightings. The guides are professional and knowledgeable. Martin, in particular was brilliant, patiently and attentively attending to the numerous questions fired at him by two very young guests accompanied by their parents. We learnt so much too from these conversations.

But the best thing about Tuningi is the food - 5-star, world-class, delicious, and plentiful. What a treat every meal was - many thanks to all the kitchen staff!

This is a very special lodge, and highly recommended. We will be back!

We first went to Tuningi in 2007 and have returned approximately 14 times since. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Everything is five star from the accommodation to the food to the game drives. The “T” team treat every guest like family and bend over backwards to make your stay memorable.
