Tintswalo is truly a spectacular place to visit and we feel blessed to have spent 3 glorious nights in the Presidential Suite. We can't wait to go back and plan to do so in a few years! The entire stay we felt completely at home and a "part of the family". We had a delay in

There are not enough words to compliment how amazing this lodge is. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights (wish it could have been longer) and then headed down to Cape Town for 5 days. The lodge is perfectly situated in the bush away from any other lodges. Elephants come

Our four day stay in Tintswalo Manor House was magical! From the moment we arrived and were met at the gates of the house by staff with warm cloths served on a silver tray to refresh us, to twice-daily safari drives with Melvin who is simply brilliant, to delicious meals

Tintswalo was the most special place for a safari. The game drivers were so knowledgeable and got us right up to the action. The location, layout and special detail at the safari lodge made Tintswalo exude luxury. Staff was beyond helpful and courteous and made each and every

Hi Larry, As our friends have already recommended, pack for layered clothing. May is the beginning of Winter here, but the days are mild. Have warm jackets for your morning and evening game drives, but we'll keep you warm too, with hot water bottles, blankets, and steaming coffee! Remember a hat and sunglasses, our southern hemisphere sun can be harsh. We can't wait to host you, Larry, see you in May!

We saw everything! Within our first five minutes out saw a lioness with her cubs. Saw a pair of cheetahs and both a male and female leopards on two separate occasions within three days.

Jwb answered this well. But I will say one of the best drives that we had during our stay was at night. We chased a leopard and ran into 3 lionesses in the pitch black. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Alistair and Foster were the BEST driver/tracker team.

Sorry -- just seeing this question. We flew into the larger airport and yes there was a fee. All non-premium alcohol is included. BTW, you will love this place. The lion prides are on Face Book so you can follow them after leaving. Really cool

Hello Susan! Our water is safe to drink, but it is very high in lime scale, so does not taste very nice. So we provide more than enough bottled water in the rooms, on the game drives and in the lodge. The water is safe to brush your teeth with though :) We look forward to seeing you in March - is there anything special that you are celebrating or that we can do so that we can make your stay more enjoyable?

"The Baines Presidential Suite gives you a private chef, house manager, and cleaner as well as your own safari vehicle, tracker and guide!"
"We stayed in Burton. It was close to the elephant watering hole so we saw many elephants walk by."
"All the rooms seemed to have a private plunge pool and private deck"
"I believe all rooms face the Bush so you can see any game that wanders by."
"None. It was all so wonderful!"
