Overview of Tintswalo Safari Lodge

Situated in the private Manyeleti Reserve, this exclusive lodge is a prime game-viewing destination, with the Timbavati Private Reserve to the north, Sabi Sand Game Reserve to the south, and the unfenced Kruger National Park to the east.

Enjoy thrilling morning and afternoon game drives in this magnificent wildlife reserve. Nature walks are another excellent way to appreciate the natural surrounds. Return to the lodge for a refreshing swim in the pool and time to relax during the hottest part of the day, before continuing your safari adventure with late afternoon or even evening game drives.

    Presidential Suite

    The Presidential Suite is also decorated in the same elegant way as the luxury suites, but offers comfortable accommodation for a small family or two couples.

    The two-bedroom suite is connected to the main lodge by a raised walkway, offering more privacy but remaining close by. The two air-conditioned rooms are connected by a beautiful lounge, dining and open plan kitchen area, and each room has individual indoor/outdoor showers and spacious en suite bathrooms.

    The large private deck has a plunge pool while the lounge has satellite and a Play Station. Presidential guests enjoy their own private safari vehicle, private guide and tracker, and private chef and butler, creating an exclusive experience that is tailored to your needs.

    • Tintswalo Safari Lodge Suite

      Explorer Suite

      The rooms at Tintswalo are all individually designed and decorated to reflect the pioneering era of the 19th century African explorers, and each suite is named after one of these historical figures.

      Situated along the banks of the seasonal Nwaswitsontso River, each of the six suites offers supreme comfort and privacy with either an extra-length double bed or two twins, spacious en suite bathroom, and in indoor/outdoor shower.

      Relax on your private deck on one of the comfortable loungers or cool off in your own plunge pool while overlooking the river bed and magnificent Sycamore groves.

      General Facilities

      The main lodge has a small, but exclusive, library that holds many rare books and creates a cosy atmosphere for quiet, evening reading.

      The wine cellar is also worth a browse, especially if you feel like picking out your own wine to accompany your evening meal.

      The Vital Source Spa is slightly removed from the main lodge and brings you professional, internationally trained therapists to relax your muscles and rejuvenate your senses.
