At Road Travel Africa we know that this is the time when some incredible specials are made available from some of our top suppliers, like the one I’m about to share with you now.

Tintswalo is an exclusive safari lodge situated in the Manyeleti Game Reserve, within the Greater Kruger National Park. The Manyeleti is a pristine wilderness reserve which opens in the east to the vastness of the Kruger Park, abounding in big five game and spectacular birdlife. The reserve is unique for its minimal vehicle density and so offering a true exclusive safari experience. Tintswalo Safari lodge is situated along a seasonal riverbed among an ancient sycamore tree grove.
The exquisitely appointed main lodge overlooks a waterhole often 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. Manyeleti in the local Shangaan language means Place of Stars, while 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. This is what you will experience.
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. Enjoy unique dining venues, and expect an adventure. 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.
After a long day’s exploration in the bush, moments of supreme relaxation, inner peace and rejuvenation of one’s spirituality are a must. The Elan Vitál spa specializes in hands-on treatment for both men and women utilizing concentrated plant-based Elemis products to stimulate all your senses. Tintswalo’s schedule is infinitely flexible. The day’s activities are planned around you, the guest. A typical day would start with an early morning game drive and perhaps a picnic breakfast. Followed by an al fresco lunch on the main lodge deck and afternoon leisure time to allow for a relaxing spa treatment. The evening drive continues into the night, complete with Tintswalo’s unique and spectacular sundowner experience, and your day is rounded by a crystal candlelit dinner.
