Tintswalo at Lapalala Wilderness is a family-friendly camp, offering six luxury tents with en-suite bathrooms and views overlooking the rolling mountains and plains of South Africa’s malaria-free Waterberg region. Accommodating up to 12 adults and 4 children in the heart of a raw African bushveld, Tintswalo at Lapalala Wilderness will open for business on 1 October 2018.
The Lapalala Wilderness Reserve was founded in 1981 by conservation leaders, Dale Parker and Clive Walker, just 3.5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg. The Tintswalo at Lapalala Wilderness establishment continues this legacy of nature preservation by remaining environmentally conscious and completely off the grid.
A 44 500 hectare home to the Big 5 and other game, the Lapalala Wilderness Reserve forms part of the UNESCO-declared Waterberg Biosphere Reserve, and is sure to delight guests with engaging wildlife sightings in one of Africa’s most diverse ecological settings. The Reserve is also known for its research and breeding programs of rare and endangered species as well as the environmental education program it delivers to school communities from around South Africa.
Tintswalo at Lapalala forms part of the Tintswalo Lodges Classic Collection, a second tier of five star accommodations and African adventure for those seeking more cost-effective offerings, while still appreciating the ethos, quality and service that each of Tintswalo’s perfectly located flagship destinations have become known for.
