This Trip surpassed all expatations from the beautiful lodge surrounded by local wildlife to the friendly and helpful staff. Early morning rides through the bush, watching the sun come up and viewing the animals almost close enough to touch was much looked forward to, then the afternoon drive was exciting also watching the sun go down and the moon come...

We had the most amazing 4 days here and would recommend it wholeheartedly. The children cried when they left! We were fed like kings and queens and had the most amazing safari experience with our Game Ranger Vic. He brought it all to life for us. The chef Tact was simply wonderful and Elvis looked after our every need always...

We as a family did not know what to expect when we arrived. It was our first time at a Safari Lodge, or South Africa in general. We were all so surprised how they welcomed us with open arms and how friendly they were! When we did our Safari, our ranger and tracker were so experienced and had a great...

Spent several days/nights here as part of a larger tour of S. Africa, and there is no question it was absolutely the high point of my trip. The Lodge itself is beautiful - set down in a wild setting with luxurious, tastefully-decorated cottages overlooking the African bush/Kruger area - each with a private terrace and plunge pool. At every turn,...

What a place to stay in the Kruger area! The private suites, the dawn and dusk safaris into the bush were outstanding! I cannot thank the staff enough for everything that they did for us.

Without question, the staff, accommodations, the game drives, the guide, the driver, were magnificent! Having a deck to enter the game vehicle, instead of lifting up to it, was a great advantage to the infirmed and elderly..important to note as it is a MUST in everyone's life.

The property itself is incredible, the food is delicious, the service it outstanding, but the people at Tintswalo really set it apart. Alistair, Alfie, Emily, Jonathan and everyone else there made it feel like we were part of the family and truly like a home away from home. And then there's the small detail of the sensory overload of animals...

We celebrated part of our honeymoon at Tintswalo and it surely turned out to be the highlight of our trip! 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...

“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").”
