Tintswalo Safari Lodge is located in the Mpumalanga Province of South Africa on the private Manyeleti Reserve concession - a lush, exclusive lodge nestled between the Timbavati Private Reserve to the north, Sabi Sand Reserve to the south, and open to the Greater Kruger National Park on its fenceless eastern boundary. Resting amidst an ancient sycamore tree grove that overlooks a waterhole frequented by large herds of elephant and other big game, Safari Lodge is a pristine wilderness reserve abounding in big game and spectacular bird life.

The reserve is unique for its very low vehicle density, and as a result offers the true exclusive safari experience.

Tintswalo Safari lodge is situated along a seasonal river bed among an ancient sycamore tree grove. The exquisitely appointed main lodge overlooks a waterhole frequented by a large herd of elephant and other big game. The Explorer suites are all linked to the main lodge by raised wooden walkways.

With an exclusive collection of six, lavish suites plus a regal presidential suite, Safari Lodge offers the discerning traveler an opportunity to let go of the hustle and bustle of busy business life and take time out to relax and become one with nature.
