Tuningi Newsletter January 2009

By gavintonkinson on January 1, 2009

Warmest Greetings to you all once again.

The Festive season has left us all exhausted as it is by far the busiest time of the year in our industry. Although we are all a bit tired, we feel elated that we could share our wonderful lodge and game reserve with so many of you. Once again all our guests have gone home feeling pampered and revived. They have experienced the wild South African bush in its true sense and gathered enough knowledge and memories to last them a lifetime.

For our January newsletter, we have thought it a good idea to let our guests do the talking for once.

Instead of us telling you what you can expect to find on your next visit to Tuningi, please feel free to page through our visitors book….

‘Our third visit! I have a feeling there will be a fourth! Another great Tuningi experience. Thank you to Gavin, Heidi and all the Team. Brilliant drives including a truly memorable leopard experience that took the biscuit!!! Wonderful food too. Gentle, friendly, courteous service and beautiful singing in the Boma. So, thank you again. We shall be back……again!’
