Room Overview

Location: South Africa–>Kruger National Park–>Manyeleti Game Reserve

Accommodation Type: Lodge

Good For: Solo, Couple/Romantic

The culturally significant Manyeleti Private Game Reserve occupies a prime ecological position, sharing unfenced borders and a wandering population of wild and wonderful animals with the Kruger, Sabi Sands, and Timbavati Game Reserves. Occupied and operated by the resident Mnisi tribe of the area, who themselves share generations worth of history with the area, and who now remain committed to promoting and protecting this exquisite summer paradise.

Tintswalo: “love or gratitude felt from receiving a gift”. Located along the banks of a gorgeous seasonal river, open to the wide plains and restless birdlife of the Manyeleti, Tintswalo Safari Lodge is luxury bush accommodation at its most beautiful. The wooden accompaniment of heels on raised walkways provides an overtone for the rustic, charming experience of this holiday home. Scenic and decorated in a distinct, authentic nineteenth century African explorer motif, each unit drinking in the magnificent views that abound. Tintswalo Lodge is a show stopping game lodge that pulls no punches and leaves guests with the unmistakable glow of a trip to the park well spent!
