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 spent three nights at Tintswalo over Christmas. The, our first safari, was one of the most incredible experiences we have ever had and we will always remember our time there. We saw elephants and zebra even while we were simply driving under our own steam to the lodge. In 6 game drives, we then saw the big 5 regularly,...

I had no idea what to expect when I landed in Kruger for our safari, and I was totally blown away. Everything from the accommodations, to the safari, to the staff, to the food was perfection. This lodge is true luxury and loved my stay!

Tinswalo is an oasis in the wild. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt welcomed, cared for and inspired. A young outstanding staff anticipated our every need.

Planning a trip from California to South Africa can be a daunting experience. Landing at Tintswalo was the best gift we could have received for our efforts.

We stayed with 5 people (4 adults and 1 child, age 4) in the Presidential suite. The service was impecable, the bush experience was completely personalized and our guide was absolutely excellent. I cannot imagine going anywhere else, honestly. We had a personal chef, housekeeper and butler, the spaces and lodge were amazing. I cannot wait to go back.
