Tintswalo Safari Lodge
is located in the Manyeleti Reserve
in the Kruger Private Reserves
area in the Northeast
of South Africa
Situated in woodland alongside a seasonal sand river, Tintswalo Safari Lodge is a high-end camp which has richly decorated Victorian style public areas leading out onto decks and an outside dining boma, plus a separate spa building. Guest accommodation is in six large guest suites, each with unheated plunge pools. The hosting is elegant and the prices are relatively keen for somewhere of this standard.
Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife viewing in this Manyeleti area is reasonably reliable year round.
The main potential downsides are that some people might find the Victorian decor something of a turn-off in such a beautifully designed lodge. There is the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.
In the Manyeleti area the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, but that is true of almost all of Kruger. However this particular house is only 4km from substantial settlements beyond the western fence.SeasonsPrices
