Private road transfer from Hoedspruit Airport to Tintswalo Safari Lodge (approximately 1 hour)
Tintswalo Safari Lodge situated on a private Manyeleti Reserve concession, within the Greater Kruger National Park. Tintswalo in the Shangaan language means the intangible feeling of love, gratitude and peace that you bestow upon someone who has given you a meaningful and worthy gift. And this is just what you will experience during your stay! Tintswalo Safari Lodge offers 5 standard ultra luxury suites and a honeymoon suite as well as a 2 bedroom self-contained Presidential Suite. Each intimate and secluded suite is air-conditioned, has its own private deck and plunge pool and is positioned along the banks of the seasonal Nwaswitsontso River. The wizardry of dining al fresco with a fusion of the unique tastes and spices of Africa is a challenge readily accepted by the chefs. Tintswalo’s chefs are trained in both South African and international cooking styles. Plated meals are served in sophisticated dining areas, including the romantic cellar and under the star scape of the African night sky. Situated within the greater Kruger National Park, the Manyeleti reserve is bounded to the north by the Timbavati reserve of the white-lion fame, and to the south by the Sabi Sands reserve. The eastern boundary adjoins the Kruger National Park, and with no fences between the reserves, a huge variety of wildlife -- approximately 105 different mammal species and 450 bird species -- roam free. Game viewing at Tintswalo takes place on foot or in individually seated open landrovers. The vehicles are equipped with spotlights for night viewing, radios for communication with the lodge and other guides and of course mosquito repellent. Walks in the reserve are guided through the ever-changing environment of the African bush. The surrounding community is predominantly from the Shangaan tribe. Historically settled within the Lower regions of Southern Africa this tribe was defeated in the 1800s by Shaka Zulu. The chief Shoshangana fled over the Lebombo Mountains and settled once again in areas reaching across the Mozambique border and South Africa. The Shangaan have largely retained their culture, being rich in folk lore and story telling. Strongly spiritual people they believe in the presence of their ancestors. A visit to the local community is not a tourist related activity, but rather an experience to see the dynamics of the local communities and how life in Africa is lived.
