Explore the Untamed Wilderness of the Madikwe Game Reserve

In the heart of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, there is a place where two valleys meet, an ancient Fig Tree and a tranquil waterhole mark your ‘home away from home’ at this South Africa safari lodge. Built on Madikwe’s rolling slopes, Tuningi Safari Lodge offers you highly personalised service, five-star luxury and an environment that is friendly and relaxed.

Situated near the Botswana border, Tuningi can be reached by car from Johannesburg in four and a half hours. For those with a wider budget, and wish to experience an exhilarating fly-in safari, Federal Airlines operates scheduled 45 minute charters from OR Tambo to Madikwe Game Reserve’s excellent all weather 1500m gravel airstrip. The Lodge is a 20 minute complimentary transfer from the strip.

Madikwe Game Reserve, one of the largest game reserves in South Africa, boasts a rich diversity of vegetation ensuring a wide range of game while the topography offers ideal game viewing opportunities. Madikwe is one of few game reserves in the world that was proclaimed a wildlife reserve purely on the grounds of being the most appropriate and sustainable land area for such use.
