Tintswalo Safari Lodge | Kruger Park

In the native Shangaan language, Tintswalo means “the intangible feeling of love, gratitude and peace bestowed upon someone offering you a meaningful and worthy gift.” Tintswalo Safari Lodge is an exclusive lodge located in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa in the Manyeleti Private Game Reserve concession. This lush, 5-star lodge is nestled between the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve to the North, Sabi Sand Reserve to the South, and open to the Greater Kruger National Park on its fence-less eastern boundary.

Resting amid an ancient sycamore tree grove that overlooks a waterhole frequented by large herds of elephant and other big game, this luxury resort is a pristine wilderness reserve abounding in big game and spectacular bird life.

Dining

The wizardry of dining al fresco with a fusion of the unique tastes and spices of Africa is a challenge readily accepted by our chefs. Enjoy unique dining venues, expect an adventure. Our imaginative wine cellar and well-stocked bar complete our concerns over your taste buds.

Tintswalo’s 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.

Elan Vita Spa

Activities
