Great first safari experience. The entire staff was very attentive. The food is marvelous, especially the south african barbecue. Darren and Eric were a great guiding team. We learned not only about the animals, but the birds and vegetation. I had a marvelous african massage...a great way to relax after bouncing around in the land rover on the game drives.... More

Just spent amazing three night four day safari adventure at Tintswalow in one of their explorer suites. The staff and services were exceptional, from when they picked us up at the airport to when they dropped us off all too soon. The rooms are fantastic, opening out onto an area where we saw elephants, impala, baboons, kudu and more just... More

A very roomy cabin with wood stove for chilly evenings- did not want to leave, Food was first class and served in unique ways - different every day. Wildlife all over the place - peering in the windows too. You need to call for an escort between sunset... More
