spirit of Tengile River Lodge Meaning
“tranquil” in the local Tsonga language, Tengile River Lodge is situated in a
serene setting, on a bend of the Sand River. Here, elegant interiors are
complimented by exquisite modern finishes, and inviting, intimate spaces
encourage a sense solitude whilst pockets of open space are designed for group
with an extremely light footprint, Tengile will feature nine suites that are
raised above ground level to give the impression that they are floating over
the riverbed, providing exceptional views from the dappled shade of a cool
riverine forest. The spacious suites will offer sunken lounges, elegant
bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms (with indoor and al fresco showers) that open
out into the forest, creating private spaces in the open air. Following
the curve of the river bank, each area of the lodge will offer magnificent
river views. A beautiful massage and gym area offer a haven of tranquillity
where guests can spend the entire day relaxing in between game drives. Sustainability
lies at the heart of the new lodge’s form and function. Environmentally
friendly construction materials have been selected with durability in mind.
Automation is being put into place to reduce the use of electricity and the use
of solar power has been combined with various procedures designed to increase
efficiency both during the build phase and after. River
