We had been in Botswana before coming to South Africa on safari staying in high end tents i.e. clamping. I loved the stone structure of Tintswalo it was just a nice change. Our guide was Andrew with Pardon as his tracker. They make a great team. This was our last safari camp and we hadn't seen Rhino so when Andrew...

The lodge was beautiful with monkeys playing in the trees and nyala grazing at your door. We had superb guides on the game drives so were able to get pretty close to animals on their own turf, which is how I've wanted to see them my whole life.

Tintswalo is a true five star African game experience. Our guide and tracker were great and spotting rare animals including cheetahs and rhinos. They really strived to make sure we saw everything on our list and being dedicated to our group of four made the experience intimate. The food was excellent and they took great care in providing the best...

We enjoyed our stay at Tintswalo immensely. Eric and dave were tremendous! We saw up close all the wildlife we could have hoped to see. In fact, all the folks at the Lodge were wonderful. We would recommend at stay at the Lodge to anyone; it was great experience for me and my family.

We stayed at the Manor House which was perfect for our three-generational family group. We had young (11 and 9) children with us who enjoyed being able to run around a bit as the hour is fenced with the water hole outside it. The staff was exceptional. The chef was so accommodating even changing the menu to ensure that the...

I was very nervous and excited to take a safari vacation, but it was the best decision I ever made. This, hands-down, was the best vacation I have ever taken. While the facilities are gorgeous (beautiful personal rooms with backyard and pool, impressive common areas, and top of the line treatment) and sophisticated, it was the pared down, disconnected, out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere...

The trip was Incredible, not merely a trip but an amazing expirience. Best trip and hotel ever! The staff in Tintswalo went out of their way to make us feel special. Miranda and Orlando (Armando) in the lodge, Erik Mararaza, and Lazarus (Israel), and the "gueritas" (blond girls) in the reception made us feel like pampered members of their family....

“The only thing I would change would be softer mattresses on the beds; they were much firmer than we are accustomed to. Otherwise, the facilities, the meals, and all the people working there were terrific!”

“We stayed in "Kingsley" which was a great room. They are all individually themed. If you want a slightly closer room to the central area choose "Livingstone" (although the walk is not that far to "Kingsley").”
