A magnificent safari destination in the untouched wilderness of the Greater Kruger

Tucked away in the 24000-ha Manyeleti Nature Reserve, Tintswalo Safari Lodge offers the perfect getaway for travellers looking for the ultimate game viewing experience. Home to the Big 5, and the Magnificent 7 (a list that includes cheetah and wild dog), Manyeleti Nature Reserve shares its unfenced borders with the famous Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands and Timbavati Game Reserves. Being located in such a pristine wilderness, it makes sense that Tintswalo Safari Lodge’s roots run deep with its conservation efforts. The lodge invests in uplifting the local community, and is involved in anti-poaching interventions and rhino conservation in the area.
