TINTSWALO SAFARI LODGE In the heart of Southern Africa’s most untouched wilderness lies the elegant Tintswalo Safari Lodge, surrounded by the private Manyeleti Wilderness Reserve.

In the heart of Southern Africa’s most untouched wilderness lies the elegant Tintswalo Safari Lodge. This exclusive lodge, under traditional grassing, is surrounded by the private Manyeleti Reserve, a pristine wilderness reserve, abounding in big five game and spectacular bird life, bordering the Greater Kruger National Park and directly north of the Sabi Sand Reserve.

Manyeleti is unique for its minimal vehicle density, offering a truly exclusive safari experience on 55000 acres of pristine wilderness – part of the greater Kruger four and a half million-acre biosphere.

Tintswalo Safari lodge is situated along a seasonal river bed in the midst of an ancient sycamore tree grove. The exquisitely appointed main lodge overlooks a waterhole frequented by all the large game animals and big cats. The viewing deck at Safari Lodge offers you a phenomenal opportunity to photograph animals at the waterhole on a daily basis in very close proximity.

The Explorer suites are all linked to the main lodge by raised wooden walkways, creating ease of access to all the suites, spa, and main lodge building. Tintswalo Manor house, an intimate homey setting with complete privacy offers luxury, en-suite air-conditioned rooms over-looking the watering hole.

Each luxury suite boasts personalized decor and the finest facilities and amenities, including super-king beds and private plunge pools. Between game drives, guests are invited to relax at the Vital Source Spa or indulge in decadent dining in nature’s most beautiful backdrop.
