I had researched number of different lodges within Greater Kruger and Tintswalo came out top. Before our stay the booking team was very helpful and quick in communicating, we were able to request specific rooms and were... More

My husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon at Tintswalo; we weren't sure what to expect since we are definitely not outdoors people and had never been on a safari before. After spending 5 nights there, it was the perfect balance between raw adventure and luxury comfort, making it the best vacation we had ever taken. The service there... More

What a wonderful place to experience the Bush, excellent game viewing with your own personal Ranger and Tracker, and 5 Star luxury accommodation. The Team at Tintswalo Lodge are amazing, and only wanted us to have the best possible Bush holiday.

We stayed at the Tintswalo Safari Lodge for three nights in October 2014, as part of the AMA Waterways Stars of South Africa tour. This is an excellent lodge that provides first rate accommodations, very good food, and located in the heart of a game reserve. It is an intimate lodge with only 8 suites, and we had our meals...

I'm not sure how it's taken us so long to find this lodge and this reserve, but it is a great find. Having stayed at others in Botswana, Zambia and several in Sabi Sands, which by the way were all lovely in their way, Tintswalo Safari Lodge has the edge. It has a homely, atmospheric, happy feel about it. The... More

We were utterly spoilt, seeing the Big 5 in the first 24 hours (including two superb leopard sightings!) Our ranger Andrew and tracker Simon were outstanding - the depth of knowledge commendable indeed. Andrew's enthusiasm for his job was... More
