The greatest trip of our lives! The lodge and staff were fantastic, our guide (Alistair) and tracker (Alfie) were just amazing! We seen lions over a fresh kill, leopards tracking two cheetah. We stayed in the Presidential suite and WOW see it on their web site. Can't wait till we can visit Tintswalo again.

Outstanding in every way! Rooms are beautiful; great views and animal visits to the patio (monkeys playing hide-and-seek at my window). Safari drives were fantastic; guides and trackers were professional, brave, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Snack stops in the middle of the game drives were a yummy surprise. Meals were also interesting and delicious; fun to eat outside and be entertained...

We relied entirely on our travel company to recommend a Safari experience and we had little idea what to expect when we arrived. We could not have been more pleased with what we discovered at Tintswalo! There really are not enough positive adjectives to capture how good a time we had. To begin with, the rooms are warmly furnished with...

Spent 3 nights here at the start of our 13 night break. The room was great, plenty big enough, with everything available. They even had internet access from the room. Game viewing from your own veranda. Food was excellent, well prepared and presented. Staff were attentive and helpful without being imposing. Ranger/driver and tracker went above and beyond.

This was my first safari experience and Tinstwalo set the bar exceedingly high for any others I may be lucky enough to take. We were greeted on arrival (in a dust storm) with refreshing drinks and warm towels. Check-in was quick and efficient and our bags delivered to our rooms promptly. Our guide Christof and tracker Foster were both knowledgeable...

I thought I'd seen it all re South African luxury game lodges. But then there was Tintswalo. In a class of it's own. Breathtaking. Spectacular sightings. Impeccable service. I can't wait to go back. Thank you Michelle, Emily, Tanya (sp?), Andrew, Pardon, Kenneth, Christel and everyone who made this such a magical and unforgettable experience.

From the moment we arrived till when we reluctantly had to go, the Tintswalo staff made us feel nothing but welcome. Very relaxing atmosphere, game drives left my family with lifetime memories, so much that we will return again some day. Fully recommend Tintswalo to all travellers thinking of Africa for a trip in the future.

“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").”
