Just north of Phalaborwa and adjacent to the magnificent Kruger National Park, Tingala offers a wonderful combination of luxurious accommodation, wild African bushveld scenery and warm South African hospitality.

For those seeking the exciting sights and sounds that only the bushveld offers, Tingala is ideally situated as it is on a private conservancy – no neighbours, no human sounds, nothing but the bush.

We pride ourselves on the world-class standards of our accommodation and our unsurpassed ambiance, hospitality and friendly personal service. Passionate about animals and the bush, avid birders, and all-round nature lovers, we care deeply about our natural environment and we subscribe to a minimum impact, leave-no-trace ecotourism philosophy.



Our EcoTrek open game viewing vehicle safaris offer you unforgettable Kruger National Park safaris. You can choose from our selection of safari packages, or we can design a customised safari to suit your exact requirements. We understand what makes a safari special, and we work hard to make sure that you will have a Kruger National Park experience that is exciting, inspiring and unforgettable. Our mission is to tread lightly on the land yet leave a deep impression on our guests. This philosophy lies at the heart of every EcoTrek safari.


Bush Lodge’s veranda offers spectacular views of the pristine bushveld beauty and excellent game viewing opportunities as elephants, antelope, zebra and other animals come to quench their thirst at the three waterholes, a mere stone’s throw away from the verandas, whilst the invitingly cool swimming pool and gentle breeze open you up to a world of tranquil luxury in the wild.

Bush Lodge

The self-catering Bush Camp is completely in the wild, with no fences so nature alone forms the boundaries. It gives you a true African experience as the animals are free to roam right up to the camp. The camp is relaxed and informal and offers you a unique bushveld accommodation and safari experience at the best possible price.



Tingala lends a romantic and beautiful atmosphere as a wedding and reception venue. We offer a day of romance and celebration in the most breathtaking, welcoming surroundings imaginable.
