Tintswalo is an exclusive safari lodge situated in the Manyeleti Game Reserve, within the Greater Kruger National Park. The Manyeleti is a pristine wilderness reserve which opens in the east to the vastness of the Kruger Park, abounding in big five game and spectacular birdlife. The reserve is unique for its minimal vehicle density and so offering a true exclusive safari experience. Tintswalo Safari lodge is situated along a seasonal river bed among an ancient sycamore tree grove.
The exquisitely appointed main lodge overlooks a waterhole often frequented by a large herd of elephant and other big game. The Explorer Suites are all linked to the main lodge by raised wooden walkways. Tintswalo Manor House, an intimate homely setting with complete privacy is located 5 minutes drive away from the Main Lodge. Luxury en-suite air-conditioned rooms over look a water hole that often welcomes thirsty visitors of all kinds.
Our imaginative wine cellar and well-stocked bar complete our concerns over your taste buds. Tintswalos chefs are trained in both South African and international cooking styles. Plated meals are served in sophisticated dining areas, including the romantic cellar and under the star scape of the African night sky. Private dining is available on request, and we will cater for any special dietary requirement when informed in advance.
After a long day's exploration in the bush, moments of supreme relaxation, inner peace and rejuvenation of one's spirituality are a must. The Elan Vitl spa specializes in hands-on treatment for both men and women utilizing concentrated plant-based Elemis products to stimulate all your senses. Tintswalo's schedule is infinitely flexible. The day's activities are planned around you, the guest. A typical day would start with an early morning game drive and perhaps a picnic breakfast. Followed by an al fresco lunch on the main lodge deck and afternoon leasure time to allow for a relaxing spa treatment. The evening drive continues into the night, complete with Tintswalo's unique and spectacular sundowner experience, and your day is rounded by a crystal candlelit dinner.
