Tintswalo Safari Lodge


Explore the Manyeleti

Tintswalo Safari Lodge prides itself on offering guests an authentic African Safari experience. Being located on prime territory, the Manyeleti Game Reserve is nestled amidst the unfenced borders of the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands and the Timbavati Reserves. Sitting in the heart of very this wilderness region, Tintswalo guests are treated to every imaginable wildlife sighting, including the Big Five, a variety of birdlife and small game, and colossal herds of large game.

Tintswalo Safari Lodge’s guides are hand-picked from among the very best candidates, selected for their knowledge, their passion for wildlife and their personal ability to be-friend guests and keep them entertained for the long hours spent together on game drives.

Trackers are sourced locally, many hailing from the native Shangaan communities, offering guests insights into the region’s local tradition and folklore. The trackers are truly gifted in their ability to track animals, prior to the game drives, using spoor and subtle signs of movement left in the bushveld.

Game drives are conducted in open, four-wheel drive game viewing vehicles. The vehicles are well-stocked with every comfort, including blankets for chilly mornings and night drives, refreshments and snacks for peckish adventurers and more practical supplies such as ponchos, insect repellent and sunscreen.
