Tintswalo Safari Lodge

Tintswalo Safari Lodge, Where to stay in the Kruger

Visitors on a trip to Africa tend to fall in love with Tintswalo Safari Lodge in the midst of the magical Manyeleti Game Reserve that shares a border with Kruger Park. These travellers appreciate the staff at the sophisticated bushveld venue called Tintswalo Safari Lodge but even more than that, they appreciate the wildlife and the hands-on adventures into the reserve with pro game rangers and trackers to find rare animals. African wild dogs are rare but the field staff find them hunting in packs in the heart of the Manyeleti for their privileged guests! 

Game drives reveal a wide variety of animals including well-known lion prides, elephants at the ‘water fountain’ and a visit to the ingenious hide reveals magical birds and wildlife up close to the viewing opening too. Eat alfresco every day and just watch the live movie playing out in front of you. Tintswalo is too good to be true. 

Sit out on the extensive timber dining deck and see how the animals come to the nearby waterhole, so close you could almost touch them. The lodge boasts gorgeous lounges splashed with huge Persian rugs, chandeliers and a high thatch ceiling, not forgetting the elegantly laid tables and lanterns lighting the way at night, a fairyland in the wilds of Manyeleti, making memories forever.

Every gorgeous suite at the safari lodge boasts a refreshing plunge pool in the extreme South African heat. This magnificent lodge promises luxury, stylish suites, showcasing echoes of antique silver and polished wood, the standalone bath tub and four poster bed all blending together seamlessly in understated elegance. Food is part of this theme – always out of this world and nothing is ever too much to ask of the staff – so visitors are drawn to return year after year. 

These are the suites visitors can choose as part f their accommodation packages to the amazing Tintswalo Safari Lodge:

  • 6 Explorer Suites featuring plunge pools and delightful wooden decks with bush views, king size beds and outside showers.
  • 1 Grant Suite dedicated to families, posing 2 full ensuite bedrooms, king size beds, a main lounge with private plunge pool on the deck, private game drives.
  • 1 Baines Presidential Suite for that honeymoon indulgence where couples can spread out over two bedrooms, king size bed, outside shower, a roomy lounge, pool, boma and large deck, private butler, chef, and game ranger. 
  • 1 Manor House accommodates 10 people in 5 lavish suites with exquisite mod cons – Wi-fi, aircon, mini bar, coffee facilities, 2 safari outings a day and more!

Find Tintswalo Safari Lodge on the edge of Kruger – pro knowledgeable guides are incredibly sensitive that all who visit Manyeleti are simply visitors to one of the rarest and most wonderful places on earth. Minimizing footprints while keeping tourists happy is not simple. This lodge has mastered the task and we agree that it’s an experience you’ll get nowhere else! 

Game drives are excellent but it’s super awesome to keep seeing wild animals in and around reception, outside guest rooms or while working out at the gym. 

What sets this lodge apart from others is the attention to detail. Each morning drive rangers pre-fill water bottles for wildlife keen guests, placing heat packs on their vehicle seats to keep them warm. Guests are greeted with various drinks as soon as they return from each drive and move on to enjoy meals in different areas of the lodge and bush.
