Situated within the private and lesser known Manyeleti Reserve on the border of Kruger National Park, Tintswalo Safari Lodge offers an intimate and exclusive safari experience.
Accommodations at the lodge consist of six luxury suites and one presidential suite. Each room here is so unique and full of character, it has its own name. The Baker Suite named after Samuel and Florence Baker has an air of romance and includes a hand-carved four-poster bed. The Kingsley Suite, an homage to spinster explore Mary Kingsley who collected insect and fish samples for the Royal Geographic society is a double or twin room. The Livingstone Suite, I presume is a colonial twin or double. The Burton Suite is an opulent room for the man who translated the Arabian Nights into English. There is also the Speke and Stanley Suites. All rooms have an attached bathroom with beautifully-appointed shower and bath. The Baines Presidential Suite sleeps four and comes with a private game vehicle, ranger, chef, and butler. The suite all enjoy a private deck overlooking the magnificent sycamore groves.
The safari lodge is ideally situated within the Manyeleti Game Reserve. It is nestled amidst the unfenced borders of the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands, and the Timbavati Reserves. This South African reserve flourishes in Big Five game and spectacular birdlife. Manyeleti means place of the star in the local Shangaan language and is owned by the Mnisi Tribe. The stars being the wide array of diverse animals who live here. Nearby Kruger National Park has more mammals than any other game reserve in Africa including 517 species of birds, 147 species of mammals, 114 species of reptiles, 50 species of fish, and 33 species of amphibians.
