We were advised, by International Medical Facility in GA, USA, to drink only bottled water while we toured south Africa, we are staying at this lodge. Did you drink bottled water, ice and/or tap water during your stay? Please advise at your earliest convenience. We are going in March.
Are the guest rooms individual cottages or rooms/suites in the same building. I'm unsure about how the lodge is configured.
I am looking at a return trip to SA and am hoping that Tintswalo will be a good fit. I have stayed at Londolozi, which is incredible and my benchmark for future trips, and Kapama, which has amazing game drives but lacks the safari "feel". Specifically, there was at least one large plane which flew overhead daily and a train that was close enough to hear. Also, Kapama is fenced and has cell towers on property, both of which you see on game drives. After the quiet solitude and isolation of Londolozi, we were quite disappointed and distracted by the city-like noise and zoo like feel of Kapama. I don't want to make that mistake again! With that in mind, can you share your thoughts/experiences regarding the ambience of Tinswalo? We are looking for a true wilderness feel while on game drives, both visual and auditory, while still enjoying the pampering and amenities of a 5 star lodge! Thank you!
