Pretty much everything about our experience at Tintswalo was amazing. The service, the game drives, the food. Having our meals in different places was amazing and we always felt like we were having a special experience. All of the staff was very professional, and our game driver was incredibly knowledgable and friendly. He was able to answer any question we... More

I think a retrospective report of a stay at Tintswalo is important because all these years later i still recall each day, each ride, each moment as the best travel experience we have had. We stayed at Tintswalo in September 2008. I still remember the flower pedals on our bed after we came back from dinner. It was my husbands... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to spend 5 days over new year tucked away in this haven. This was hands down the best experience of my life. 1. The lodge itself is exceptional. It is so tastefully decorated, comfortable and well tended for. You wouldn’t believe you were in the depths of the bush in Kruger. We stayed... More

We have stayed at many lodges in the Sabi Sands and the Timbavati and I am confident in saying Tintswalo Safari Lodge ranked number 1 on our list. The rooms are beautiful, spacious and luxurious yet you still feel like you are in the bush. They rooms run along a dry river bed with beautiful decks and a small plunge... More

This was our third camp on our African Adventure. We were welcomed as family. I had injured my leg and the staff was very tuned in to helping me get around. I felt as though I was La Grande Dame. Our room was incredible so spacious with wonderful views of the property. The punch pool on the deck was nice.... More

Tintswalo is a very magical place. Excellent game viewing and extremely comfortable lodge that caters for everything one would need. The Ranger was informative and very entertaining. The staff were friendly.

Perhaps are expectations were too high for Tintswalo but for us it was not excellent. On arrival there was no welcome and it seemed unclear who was in charge. Perhaps because there seemed to be some in house training taking place, full attention was not given to the guests. Our ranger was also new to Tintswalo & this led to... More

We spend 3 nights at Tintswalo and it was a truly memorable bush break. Every aspect of this Lodge is worthy of their excellence award. The accommodation, food, staff, service and game drives were truly top class and the 'special touches' of bush breakfasts and picturesque sundowners made this an unforgettable bush break. I would recommend Tintswalo safari lodge to... More

We were lucky enough to spent 4 nights at the manor house in August 2015! We´re a german family with 6 children, the youngest being only 12, and we got to see the big 7 and even witnessed a leopard carrying his prey and dragging it up a tree. The wild dog puppies were another absolutely amazing sight, as well... More
