We stayed at Tintswalo Safari Lodge for 3 nights and it was exactly what we were looking for in a safari experience. It was very luxurious but still gave you a certain "South African" vibe, unlike some of the other luxury lodges we were looking at that were too modernized. Our private villa was beautiful, extremely private and enormous! It really gave you the feel that you were in the middle of the bush, but still keeping with the whole 5 star mentality. The staff were incredible friendly, attentive, accomodating and personable. Our tracker and driver were also top notch! We sadly did not see any cats (due to a recent burning of the bush which they occasionally do to ensure the plants grow back in better condition for the animals) which was extremely disappointing and wish we were advised that it was not the best time to visit, but our driver and trackers made it their mission to find them. We drove for hours on end in search for these cats but it was not their fault. We did however see countless numbers of other animals like elephant (with babies), giraffe (with a 1 week old baby), hippo, rhino (and babies), buffalo, etc and many other rare nocturnal animals. This was by far one of most incredible experience of my life and Tintswalo is to thank. Highly recommended safari lodge!
