Only six beautiful suites and one magnificent Presidential suite make up Tintswalo Safari Lodge in Manyeleti Game Reserve. If you are looking for a private safari experience, away from it all, then this is the place you want to go. All suites are extremely large, and maybe the most wonderful we've ever seen. As it can become very hot in summer months, all rooms are air conditioned. Bathrooms are equipped with an indoor and outdoor shower. A particular nice feature is the small private plunge pool on the outside deck. It is just lovely to relax here while looking at the waterhole in front of the lodge. Picture yourself having a gin & tonic, in your own plunge pool, while seeing elephants pass in the dry river bed below.
All suites are connected with the main lodge building by a raised wooden pathway. In the spectacular building you will find the restaurant, a small safari library, a very extensive wine cellar, boutique and large lounge area with a beautiful romantic fireplace.
Tintswalo Safari Lodge prides itself on offering guests an authentic African Safari experience. Being located on prime territory, the Manyeleti Game Reserve is nestled amidst the unfenced borders of the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands and the Timbavati Reserves. Sitting in the heart of very this wilderness region, Tintswalo guests are treated to every imaginable wildlife sighting, including the Big Five, a variety of birdlife and small game, and colossal herds of large game.
Tintswalo Safari Lodge’s guides are hand-picked from among the very best candidates, selected for their knowledge, their passion for wildlife and their personal ability to be-friend guests and keep them entertained for the long hours spent together on game drives.
Trackers are sourced locally, many hailing from the native Shangaan communities, offering guests insights into the region’s local tradition and folklore. The trackers are truly gifted in their ability to track animals, prior to the game drives, using spoor and subtle signs of movement left in the bushveld.
Game drives are conducted in open, four-wheel drive game viewing vehicles. The vehicles are well-stocked with every comfort, including blankets for chilly mornings and night drives, refreshments and snacks for peckish adventurers and more practical supplies such as ponchos, insect repellent and sunscreen.
