I spent with my family 4 days at Tintswalo lodge at the Presidential Suite. The Suite is an independent villa where you have 3 people at your service, lunch and dinner included. There's a chef at your disposal and above all all your game drives are unique and extraordinary. We saw all the Big Five easily and we learnt so...

We spent three nights at Tintswalo over Christmas. The, our first safari, was one of the most incredible experiences we have ever had and we will always remember our time there. We saw elephants and zebra even while we were simply driving under our own steam to the lodge. In 6 game drives, we then saw the big 5 regularly,...

I had no idea what to expect when I landed in Kruger for our safari, and I was totally blown away. Everything from the accommodations, to the safari, to the staff, to the food was perfection. This lodge is true luxury and loved my stay!

Tinswalo is an oasis in the wild. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we felt welcomed, cared for and inspired. A young outstanding staff anticipated our every need. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun and our tracker Eric knows the bush as if he was born there--oh, right, he was born there. Our rooms were so...

Planning a trip from California to South Africa can be a daunting experience. Landing at Tintswalo was the best gift we could have received for our efforts. There are not enough adjectives to describe how incredible the staff and accommodations are. To go on safari is an incredible experience and Tintswalo knows how to make dreams come true for everyone....

We stayed with 5 people (4 adults and 1 child, age 4) in the Presidential suite. The service was impecable, the bush experience was completely personalized and our guide was absolutely excellent. I cannot imagine going anywhere else, honestly. We had a personal chef, housekeeper and butler, the spaces and lodge were amazing. I cannot wait to go back.
