Enter the gateway to Kruger

Depart Johannesburg on a short flight to Nelspruit, where you will pick up your vehicle. A short scenic drive takes you to Oliver's Restaurant & Lodge in the town of White River, near the Kruger National Park.

After checking in, spend the rest of your afternoon lazing beside the swimming pool or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the tranquil grounds. Oliver's is ideally situated for an exploration of the scenic Panorama Route. Enjoy a day trip to the Blyde River Canyon, Pilgrim's Rest and the potholes at Bourke's Luck.

Set out after breakfast for the drive to Manyeleti Game Reserve - a private concession adjoining the Kruger National Park. It's serious Big 5 country and you'll have two full days in search of Africa's most iconic animals plus a host of other classic game species. Check in and kick off your family safari with a late afternoon game drive, returning to camp after dark via a spotlit drive and in time for dinner.

Tintswalo also offers a variety of other great activities including guided nature walks, stargazing sessions and informative visits to a local Shangaan village where you'll get to learn more about local traditions and customs.
