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

A perfect combination! After a long day's exploration in the bush, moments of supreme relaxation, inner peace and rejuvenation of one's spirituality. Elan Vitál spa specializes in hands-on treatment for both men and women utilizing concentrated plant-based Clarins and Jessica products to stimulate all your senses.

Activities

Tintswalo's schedule is infinitely flexible. The day's activities are planned around you, the guest. A typical day would start with an early morning game drive and perhaps a picnic breakfast.

The evening drive continues into the night and your day is rounded by a crystal candlelit dinner.

James Augustus Grant was a Scottish explorer of Africa who spent much of his time traversing the continent with the renowned John Hanning Speke, in search of the source of the Nile. Grant was known for his loyalty, his resilience through tough times and his commitment to Speke’s voyage.

Each suite boasts its own lavish bathroom, with views onto the African wilderness. The home shares a comfortable lounge and a deck with a large plungepool, offering guests a central place to relax and enjoy time together while overlooking the bush.

Guests of the Grant Suite are catered for at Tintswalo Safari Lodge’s main lodge building, enjoying their meals on the main lodge deck, in the dining room, or in the wine cellar.
