wildlife in tinga area of kruger

I understand that tinga lodges are actually in kruger park itself. It looks to me from a map that it is on the border of sabi sands.
In the past i have stayed in sabi sands and had great viewing, do you think the same will hold true for tinga? Can i assume i will see the big five and cheetah if i stay 3 days?
I know there are no guarentees but just want to have a high probability.

havent been myself, but have a friend that just went in late november to tinga. he stayed for either 2 or 3 nights and saw 3 of the big five (lion, elephant, buffalo). no sightings of leopards, rhino or cheetah. if you want a high probability go to mala mala, singita, or londolozi. the tinga lodge was incredible though i'm told and my friend had a great time.

Having been to Tinga, I think that the lodge is really amazing but the game is definatly not up to scratch.

If you want an awesome game experiance and a wonderful lodge Dulini at Exter is another one of my favourites and the big 5 is in abundance
