An exclusive safari home from home, Tintswalo Manor House is a beautiful thatched private lodge set in a secluded area of the Manyeleti Reserve not far from the main Tintswalo Lodge. Run by the same expert team, the Manor House is perfect for families and private groups on an exclusive use basis and sleeps 6-10 people, including children. Adjoining South Africa’s Kruger National Park, Manyeleti is a wonderfully unspoilt reserve with very few lodges, so you get to see the Big 5 without the crowds, and enjoy the authentic safari experience of tracking wildlife and lingering over your game viewing.
Designed to be family-friendly, the house and garden has a discreet fence around it, so you can still watch elephants strolling by to the waterhole just beyond your dining boma, but children are safe to run about freely inside the grounds. There are three en-suite bedrooms downstairs looking over the garden to the waterhole, one of which has a connecting child’s bedroom. Then there is the en-suite master bedroom upstairs with even better views over the surrounding bush. All the rooms are comfortably furnished in tasteful traditional decor with touches of warm earth colours and a distinct old-world African feel. The beds are draped in mosquito netting and there is air-conditioning for warmer weather.
Your personal chef cooks delicious meals in the open kitchen, so you have complete flexibility of when and where you want to eat, whether in the inside dining area by candlelight, or around the camp fire in the outside boma under the light of the moon.
You also have your own butler and ranger, so everything is tailored to your preferences, from drinks by the swimming pool to game drives, bush walks, night drives, star-gazing and children’s activities. Children over 2 can take part in game drives, but they must be 16 to join in the bush walks. For extra pampering guests can visit the luxurious Vital Source spa at the main Tintswalo Lodge nearby.
A wonderfully authentic safari experience , Tintswalo offers excellent value for money and the luxury of privacy and dedicated service in a beautiful corner of Africa.
