INTIMATE KRUGER SAFARI Be amazed by Tinga’s Big Five safari experience from the private wildlife viewing decks of the suites at Tinga Legends and Tinga Narina, and on safari in an open vehicle, and on foot with an experienced professional guide. See all that wildest Africa has to offer on a sunrise or sunset safari in one of Tinga’s open safari vehicles where guests are limited to a maximum of 6 guests per safari vehicle, and more exclusively request a private safari vehicle with a private guide. Advance booking is required. Observe a host of wildlife and hundreds of bird species in the Kruger National Park which has one of the highest biodiversity ratings in the world, offering an array of interesting fauna and flora including 147 mammal species, over 500 bird species, close to 340 tree species, and a plethora of reptiles, grasses and insects to enhance every safari and bush walk. Tinga’s private concession is situated between the Sabie and Sand rivers, with 37 km of river frontage. This is a premier wildlife area, offering the Big Five, and due to the riverine habitat and large numbers of prey animals such as impala concentrated in the area, the Sabie River boasts the highest recorded density of leopards in Africa. With water permanently available in the Sabie River, the area is big cat territory with frequent sightings of lion and leopard. The Sabie River is said to have the richest biodiversity of any South African river, and the area has one of the highest predator densities in Africa, offering guests the chance to see all the major predators. Safaris conducted within the exclusive private concession provide Tinga guests with the privilege of viewing two of Africa’s most endangered mammals, the African wild dog and the black rhino. The African wild dog is Africa’s second most endangered carnivore, the first being the Ethiopian wolf. The Kruger National Park hosts Africa’s largest resident population of black rhino, which has dwindled over the last 30 years from 65,000 in Africa in 1970 to a mere 4,000 today. The Sabie River attracts herds of elephant and buffalo which move through the landscape, particularly during the dry season from March to October, whilst hippo are plentiful in the river. Common game species include giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, warthog and a variety of antelope such as kudu, nyala, bushbuck, impala, duiker and steenbuck. Sweet lowveld bushveld is the dominant vegetation type, supported by shallow soils. Where soils are deeper these are usually saturated with sodium, leading to the occurrence of sodic sites on the concession. In these areas the vegetation has elevated levels of sodium, which is a great attraction to wildlife. Such areas tend to be impermeable to water, leading to the formation of wallows, which rhino find particularly appealing. Tinga’s concession is home to one of the best preserved Marula forests in the Kruger National Park, in the Selati section near Tinga Legends. Observe hundreds of bird species, with over 330 species recorded on the Tinga Concession and over 500 recorded in the Kruger National Park. Special sightings of African finfoot, Narina trogon, Pels fishing owl and Osprey, with regular sightings of the critically endangered Southern Ground Hornbill make Tinga a bird watching paradise. The Kruger National Park is one of the last secure refuges for the Southern Ground Hornbill, with more than 60 confirmed nesting sites and 145 groups identified. The focus on bush walks is to look at those aspects of the bush which are less visible from the safari vehicle. Reading the signs of the wild, listening to the calls of the wild, feeling the textures of the

wild, bush walks at Tinga encourage use of all the senses. In keeping with the Kruger National Park policy on guided walks, no children under 16 years are allowed on a walk.

To maintain exclusivity and comfort, Tinga seats a maximum of six guests per open safari vehicle. The vehicles have compartments between the seats for safe storage of personal belongings while on safari. A private safari vehicle with a private guide may also be requested, subject to availability. Professional guides in South Africa are registered with DEAT, the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism. Tinga’s professional guides also undergo Kruger National Park’s stringent rifle proficiency assessments in order to carry a rifle and conduct bush walks in the Kruger National Park. This assessment is valid for 3 years, whereafter the guide is re-assessed. The minimum requirement for walking in Big Five territory is 100 hours of walking trails experience. Tinga’s experienced Walking Trails Guides each have between 500 and 2,000 hours of walking trails experience, including tracking and following up dangerous game on foot. Tinga prides itself on offering bush walks conducted by Professional Guides with Kruger National Park Advanced Rifle Proficiency. For these Guides, guest safety and respect for wildlife is of paramount importance. While off-road driving is permitted, operations are conducted in such a manner that the environment is never compromised. Guides return to off-road sites after the safari, to rehabilitate the area, thus eliminating a permanent footprint on the earth.

ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT The National Parks are the cornerstone of nature based tourism in South Africa, and ecotourism is a key component to achieve growth and employment in South Africa. Tinga’s Private Concession within a National Park generates a range of social and economic benefits without compromising the ecological integrity of the National Park. These benefits include capital investment, foreign exchange generation, employment creation, stimulation of support industries and development of small, medium and micro enterprises, ensuring that the local community benefits from the Concession’s activities. Tinga’s guests play a vital role in achieving these objectives. An independent Environmental Control Officer, in conjunction with the Kruger National Park, conduct a bi-annual Environmental Audit. This is unique to Concessions in National Parks and does not apply in the private reserves. Tinga achieves an overall 96% rating in the environmental audit. The Audit covers the following aspects  Water management strategy includes recycling  Water allocation is limited contractually on a daily basis  Water usage is measured daily and reported on monthly  Laundry is outsourced and is managed off-site  Water quality is tested and reported on monthly  Water saving devices are implemented in all back of house areas  Bed occupancy, both guests and staff, is controlled daily, to limit impact on the environment  Waste management strategy includes recycling  Waste is separated and stored in scavenger proof storage areas  Waste management is controlled daily and removed off site, burying of waste is prohibited  Fuel storage and usage is controlled and reported on monthly for diesel, petrol, paraffin, gas  Fuel storage tanks precludes leakage and spillage through bunding  Power supply complies with underground cable installation, and sustainable energy options include energy efficient globes  Off road driving incidents are recorded daily, rehabilitated and reported on monthly  Firewood may not be collected in the National Park and is sourced from an approved sustainable source, thereby not contributing to the destruction of indigenous trees  The wood type and point of harvest must be free of alien plant seeds  Firewood is stored in a designated place where possible germination of alien plants can be closely monitored  Fire management and fire breaks are controlled by the National Park  Roads and Tracks are maintained, obstacles are removed from the roads, damage is repaired  Road usage is controlled prohibiting travel on specific soil types during the rainy season  Specific roads are closed in high rainfall periods, to prevent environmental damage  Erosion management prevents environmental degradation  Hazardous products and chemicals are controlled  Cleaning materials are eco friendly  Guest amenities utilize ingredients and packaging which are environmentally friendly and South African in origin. The supplier is committed to fair labour practice and 100% of the work force and middle management is made up of previously disadvantaged women and men  No natural resources from the Kruger National Park may be used under any circumstances Tinga’s guests contribute to achieving the highest possible rating in the environmental audit, through daily water saving and power saving.

SOCIAL AND EMPOWERMENT COMMITMENT Tinga uses all appropriate opportunities to support the empowerment of historically disadvantaged groups by creating business and employment opportunities for the communities living in the vicinity of the Kruger National Park. This support includes, but is not limited to, employment of Tinga staff from the local community, training and upskilling of these staff, and outsourcing of staff meals and staff transport. Tinga has established a Charitable Trust whose beneficiaries are underprivileged and deserving causes in the vicinity of Tinga and the Kruger National Park. The Trust ensures that funds are applied effectively and the Trust is audited annually by appointed auditors of the Trustees. Skukuza Nursery School / Pre-school cares for the children of employees of the Kruger National Park and it is this worthy cause which is the current focus of the Trust, providing these children with opportunities which they could previously only dream of. Tinga’s guests have the opportunity to contribute to the positive development of these children and other deserving causes in the community. CONSERVATION COMMITMENT Tinga supports the Endangered Wildlife Trust’s (EWT) Large Bird Project within the Kruger National Park, and most recently sponsored the production of a Large Bird identification booklet for the field rangers employed by the Kruger National Park. The Large Bird Project falls under the Birds of Prey Working Group (BoPWG) which ensures an environment in which healthy populations of raptors and vultures live in harmony with mankind. Tinga supports the EWT’s Carnivore Conservation Group which teams up with South African National Parks to conduct a census of Wild Dogs and Cheetahs in the Kruger National Park, contributing to the long term conservation of these mammals. The Kruger National Park is home to one of the only viable populations of Wild Dogs and Cheetahs in South Africa due to the protected environment. Both species are the rarest of the Park’s large carnivores.

LUXURY ACCOMMODATION Set on a magnificent private concession where two mighty African rivers meet, in the heart of the breathtaking Kruger National Park, Tinga Private Game Lodge offers the ultimate combination of absolute luxury and world class facilities at Tinga Legends and Tinga Narina which are both five star graded. Each lodge has nine spacious suites, all of which are identical in terms of luxury and exclusivity. Each suite at Tinga is positioned to ensure total privacy, whilst providing unspoiled wildlife viewing from its own private deck overlooking the Sabie River and the African bush. TINGA LEGENDS Tinga Legends exudes the style, elegance and luxurious comfort of a classic safari lodge, and is named in honour of those whose vision and foresight ensured that one of the world’s greatest natural treasures exists today, the Kruger National Park. The elegant thatched entrance leads through to the luxurious comfort of the lounge on the open terrace, which flows to the wooden deck below, embracing an ancient Jackalberry tree. The deck affords magnificent views of the Sabie River and surrounding bushveld, with frequent sightings of a variety of wildlife, including the Big Five. TINGA NARINA Narina has a distinctly more African feel. Built on stilts and nestled between the leadwood trees on the banks of the Sabie River, the private wood and thatch suites make Narina the romantic hideaway of your dreams. Like the Narina Trogon, the bird after which it is named, Narina is unobtrusive, yet undeniably beautiful, blending perfectly with the riverine vegetation that ensures exciting Big Five viewing.

ACTIVITIES Skukuza Golf Course 72-par 9-hole 18-tee Play golf on one of Africa’s most unique and scenic courses in the heart of the Kruger National Park, and expect to share the fairways on a course where wildlife roams freely. In close proximity to Tinga Legends and Tinga Narina, the Skukuza Golf Course offers guests an exciting opportunity to enjoy a round of golf on a unique course. Advance booking is advised. Selati Railway Line Construction on the Selati Railway Line began in 1892 with the intention of linking the Selati goldfields of the Limpopo and Mpumalanga regions, with the railway line from Komatipoort to Delagoa Bay, now Maputo, in Mozambique. In 1923 before the Park was officially opened to tourism, South African Railways offered a tourist service called Round in Nine, which was a 9-day scenic tour around the country. The most popular part of the trip was the journey along the Selati line which included stops for bush walks and an evening bushveld barbeque. When the Kruger National Park was opened to the public in the mid-1920’s the Selati railway line was used for tourist traffic. Decades later Park authorities decided the railway line conflicted with nature conservation, and in 1972 the line was used for the last time and was then lifted. The last engine to travel through the Park, number 3638, is now a monument at Skukuza and one of the original carriages is home to the bar in the Selati restaurant in Skukuza rest camp. A section of the historic Selati railway line and the Selati Railway Bridge can be seen on the Tinga Concession. Guests of Tinga have the opportunity to cross the Sabie River in a handpumppowered trolley over the Selati Railway Bridge. Stevenson-Hamilton Memorial Library and Campbell Hut Museum The memorial library is one of the great attractions of Skukuza, housing a fine collection of rare Africana, paintings and photographs, and a wealth of memorabilia used by rangers. On display is the lion skin and pocket knife that delivered the death blow to the lion in 1903 during Ranger Harry Wolhuter’s epic drama in the early days of the Kruger National Park. The Campbell Hut museum preserves the oldest hut in Skukuza, as an example of tourist accommodation in 1929, together with the first fuel pump. Lake Panic Bird Hide Lake Panic Bird Hide offers exceptional photographic opportunities of a diversity of birdlife, being the major bird hide in southern Kruger. Among the less common Kruger birds recorded at Lake Panic are the Osprey, Black-crowned Night Heron, Black Crake and African Rail. A resident crocodile lurks in the dam feeding off barbel which scavenge in the water below the hide. Hippo are frequently seen at extremely close quarters, presenting yet another awesome experience.

Skukuza Indigenous Nursery and the Wetlands Board Walk
The Nursery was the first indigenous nursery in South Africa and it continues to cultivate only indigenous plants, mainly plants endemic to the Kruger National Park and surrounds. With the exception of cycads, all seed is collected in the Park and sent to the nursery for drying and cultivation. The Wetlands Board Walk is an elevated wooden walkway providing a prime birding spot through the reedbeds and woodlands around the nursery. The board walk offers educational information on the importance of wetlands.
