Tintswalo Safari Lodge


The luxurious 5-star Tintswalo Safari Lodge is in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa in the private Manyeleti Reserve. This lush Tintswalo concession is between the Timbavati Private Reserve to the north, the famous Sabi Sand Reserve to the south and is open to the Kruger Park on its eastern fenceless boundary.

The lodge is amongst an old fig tree which overlooks a waterhole which is very familiar with lots of different animals, especially the Elephants. The reserve is also unique for small density and, therefore, offers a truly exclusive and memorable safari experience in the untamed African wilderness.

The Lodge offers six exclusively appointed suites in addition to the regal presidential suite. The lodge provides the discerning traveller with an opportunity to relax actually and unwinds in the most beautiful and natural surroundings.

The Presidential Suite is authentically decorated to reflect the pioneering times of the nineteenth-century African explorers. This suite is ideally suitable for a family, or guests who prefer the ultimate exclusive safari and a flexible itinerary. It boasts two air-conditioned suites, which are connected by a spacious lounge, dining and open, plan kitchen area. The private indoor & outdoor showers lead off from the spacious bathrooms, which open out onto the deck with a large private plunge pool.

The Presidential Suite is usually booked exclusively, whereby guests enjoy their private safari vehicle, private guide, tracker, chef and butler. The team of staff is on hand to facilitate the discerning traveller's personalised itinerary. Furthermore, the Presidential Suite at the Safari Lodge features DSTV and a play station. For safety and convenience, the Suite is connected to the main Safari Lodge by a raised walkway.

Manyeleti Reserve

What makes the reserve, unique is the tiny human: land density ratio. With only two commercially operated lodges, a maximum of 8 safari vehicles traverses the Manyeleti Game Reserve. It is said that this is one of the lowest vehicle density private reserves in the greater Kruger Park region. The two commercially operated lodges at the Manyeleti Game Reserve are Honeyguide Tented Safari Camps and the Tintswalo Safari Lodge.

Kruger National Park is one of the most diverse national parks in the world. It is home to a vast array of flora and fauna. No fences exist between the different game reserves, which means that animals are free to roam freely. The Lodge is in an ideal "catchment" zone, which is attractive to a variety of wildlife species due to the high quality of the environment. The size of the reserve is 23500 hectares. (58750 acres).

Predators found in the Thornveld region are Lion, Cheetah, Hyena, Wild Dog, Leopard, and Black-backed Jackal. Browsers discovered in the area would be Kudu, Giraffe, Impala and Duiker, Bushbuck, Kudu, and Nyala. Uncommon sightings are the Black Rhino and Sable antelope.
