Stay at Tintswalo Safari Lodge

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 in Mpumalanga. 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.

The six spacious and sumptuous suites all have private decks and a plunge pool, and overlook a waterhole frequented by variations of wildlife. Each suite is also authentically decorated to recall the pioneering times of the nineteenth century African explorers they are named for.

The Presidential Suite is especially suited for a family, or

guests who prefer the ultimate exclusive safari and a flexible itinerary.There are two air-conditioned suites which are connected by a spacious lounge, dining, and open plan kitchen area. The individual indoor/outdoor showers lead off from the spacious bathrooms that open out onto the deck with its large private plunge pool.

The Presidential Suite is predominantly booked exclusively, where guests enjoy their own private safari vehicle, private guide and tracker, private chef, and butler.

The suite also has DSTV and a PlayStation to ensure entertainment for every member of a guest’s party, at any time. For safety and convenience, the Presidential Suite is connected to the main Safari Lodge by a raised walkway.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
