Tuningi is a First Class Family Lodge in the Malaria Free Madikwe
Often parents have to compromise their family time in favour of an exclusive bush getaway as many luxury lodges do not cater for children. However, Tuningi has launched its kids’ programmes to cater for family getaways, which entails a number of ‘firsts’ in bush activities.
Children over five years are able to enjoy the usual daily game drives along with experienced rangers, their parents and other guests, while children below five years old are issued with a workbook and taken out on their own, for shorter ‘bumbles’.
While parents enjoy the early morning game drives, they can be assured that if their children remain behind, they are looked after by the lodge’s professional child minders until they wake, after which they are taken to the main lodge for breakfast.
During afternoon game drives, treasure hunts for children can be arranged and an educational talk on the items found is given by a knowledgeable staff member.
In the evenings, children can eat dinner in their room or they can enjoy an interactive dinner with a chef, who allows them to make their own foodie treats.

Tuningi accepts young children,
and the lodge is really(!)
good at looking after them.
There were nannies available
during our game drives and
dinner, and during brunch,
there were individuals available
to watch the kids while we ate.
They also take the kids (and their
parents) on what they call
“bumbles”, or safaris for kids.
Our guide led us to two male
lions for the kids to see, which was
an excellent experience for them.
...absolutely perfect for a family.
For my wife, three daughters
(aged 15, 13 and 10) and I it was
the experience of a lifetime.
Fabulous for children
= fabulous for adults!
...the bumble drives for the
children were as good as the
game drives for the adults.
