Excellent attention to detail. Wonderfully attentive staff and management - thank you Tanya, Dave and team. Very knowledgeable guides - Graeme was an interactive and personable host over the entire weekend. A most fantastic weekend getaway.
We were looking for three nights away from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg: somewhere quiet and unspoiled, a return to nature, with good food and luxury and pampering, and hopefully a unique experience. Except that the food was far better than good (it was truly exceptional), our visit to Tintswalo Lapalala met and exceeded our expectations. A fabulous experience to which we will definitely return.
I just love this game reserve and lodge - the adventure starts from when your Guide picks you up at the gate and shuttles you to the lodge. We spotted game on that very first drive and it didn't end until we were back at our car a few days later. This is my second time at Lapalala, this time with my sister, and we took advantage of the spa, bush walk and the Rock paintings activities. I was completely spoilt for my birthday and the surprises didn't end all weekend! During the rain we enjoyed the fireplace in our room as well as the games available in the main lodge building. I am making this an annual trip - the luxury quality experience and attention to detail make this lodge an exceptional stay, and the team (Tamsyn, Daniel, Ellena, Theresa, Graeme and more) are one of the best I've experienced. Thank you Tintswalo for an amazing time in the bush.…
Tintswalo Lapalala was really an amazing experience. From the minute you arrive and sadly when you leave. Arrive as guests but leave as family. Service is great, food is decedent and I cannot fault anything.
This was the best vacation we could have ask for. If I could rate this past the maximum score I really would. Everyone you deal with at Tintswalo is so friendly and passionate about what they do. My only complaint is I gained weight because of their over feeding lol. These guys understand hospitality. Definitely will be back. A special mention to Graeme who was so great at getting us the best sightings in the reserve and all the education he provided us. And overall quality experience!
