Set on a bend in the Sand River, this lodge lives up to its name –  Tengile means “tranquil” in the local Tsonga language. Elegant interiors meet modern finishes and amenities, with plenty of space to savour the solitude, or mingle with your fellow travellers.

The nine “floatings” suites look out over the river, raised above ground level and offer wonderful views of the surrounding forest. The spacious suites will boast sunken lounges, elegant bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms (with indoor and al fresco showers) opening out onto the cool riverine forest.

Indulge in a relaxing massage at the spa, or spend some time in the gym, when you’re not out exploring the area on a game drive.

Sustainability is paramount at Tengile River Lodge, and environmentally friendly materials have been used in construction, with durability in mind. Solar power systems have been installed to cut down on the amount of electricity used.
