Everything was spectacular from the get-go, from gorgeously laid out sunset drinks in the bush to the exciting game drives. Service was excellent, from the wait staff, housekeeping, to the reception and of course our knowledgeable ranger and tracker, Andrew...

My wife and I stayed for four nights at Tintswalo during our honeymoon in October 2016. We had an absolutely amazing time. We felt well cared for the entire time, and going out on safari with head guide and head of lodge operations Alistair was amazing. His knowledge of the animals, the ecosystem, and the people of the surrounding areas...

Wonderful facility and even more wonderful people. Food and room exceeded expectations. Game trips were exciting and educational. Saw everything we came to see - up close and personal. My wife and I both thought all was done to make this " once in a lifetime."

The entire experience was fantastic. From the initial welcome until our departure all of the staff do their utmost to ensure everything goes smoothly. They are very friendly and attentive. When I had a request it was followed up and actioned without needing to continually remind a staff member. The food is good, but do not expect Michelin Star dining....

We stayed in the Presidential Suite for 5 nights over the New Years period. The suite is not a suite....its an apartment...its huge and furnished beautifully with unique pieces of furniture, two comfy four poster beds, two roll top baths, two open showers and staff on hand for your every need. The suite was unbelievable and topped off with two...

“We stayed in "Kingsley" which was a great room. They are all individually themed. If you want a slightly closer room to the central area choose "Livingstone" (although the walk is not that far to "Kingsley").”
