Top 5 Most Instagrammable Spots at Tuningi

By Kyra Tarr on January 31, 2024

Tuningi Safari Lodge has no shortage of gorgeous spots to capture for your Instagram reel. Whether you’re a social media butterfly or simply love taking pictures to reminisce to, having a beautiful backdrop makes all the difference!

For those who are already dreaming of their Instagram safari with us, here are five scenic spots to line up in your (camera) sights.

1. Main Deck

The deck attached to our Main Lodge is always camera-ready, no matter the angle! It overlooks a waterhole which attracts many wild visitors for a morning or evening drink. Imagine capturing a selfie with a family of elephants drinking in the background.

This is also the perfect spot to take a sunset photograph. (Perhaps a romantic shot with you and your love…)

The rim flow pool on the main deck is also an Instagrammer’s delight. There’s nothing that screams “safari” like a shot of you in a pool overlooking the pristine bushveld of the Madikwe Game Reserve.

2. On The Vehicle

Announce your Instagram safari to your friends, fans and followers from the comfort of our game-viewing vehicles.

These open 4×4’s make the perfect frame to show off your safari-ready outfits and extra points are awarded for capturing a special sighting in the background.

Bonus: Ask your guide or tracker to snap a shot of the entire vehicle from their seat in the front of the vehicle. A safari selfie to keep for years to come.

3. Boma

A sweeping wooden walkway will lead you from the main pool deck to our gorgeous outdoor boma.

This is the perfect place to capture a dreamy safari shot – perhaps over dinner?

The boma is built under a sprawling fig tree, a stark reminder of this ancient landscape, and the ideal placement for your pre-dinner photo session!

4. Underground Hide

Our underground hide is a unique feature of Tuningi Safari Lodge and enables you to view animals discreetly and from a completely different aspect.

Sow a small seed of envy among your followers (just a touch) by capturing yourself in this contemporary hide, complete with a glass of gin in hand.

5. Your Suite

Your Instagram safari wouldn’t be complete without showing off your luxurious lodgings!

There is so much to photograph in your suite, from gauzy white mosquito nets twisting in the breeze to large, romantic bathrooms that speak of travel in another era.

Set up shots of your morning coffee, private breakfast spread or endless viewing over the bushveld. The possibilities are endless!
