A South African Journey of Luxury
From bush, to beach, to city, Tintswalo Lodges comprises three luxury destinations in three unique locations, extending to travellers the best in scenery that South Africa has to offer. From Tintswalo Safari Lodge, settled in the heart of the Greater Kruger bush, to the country-chic, urban luxuries of Johannesburg’s Tintswalo at Waterfall, to the magnificent ocean-facing Cape Town gem, Tintswalo Atlantic – Tintswalo’s idyllic locations and service excellence create memories that remain with guests for years to come.

Perched above a pebbled beach at the foot of Chapman’s Peak, and overlooking the Cape’s iconic Sentinel mountain, Tintswalo Atlantic sits sheltered by the Table Mountain National Park. As the only hotel permitted to operate within the boundaries of the word-renowned Heritage site, the lodge enjoys the very best of magnificent, panoramic ocean views, as well as access to the natural beauty found along the mountainside’s winding hiking trails.
With ten beautifully appointed suites and one regal presidential suite – all of which have been freshly re-furbished from floor to ceiling – Tintswalo Atlantic offers the luxuries of a world-class hotel, with personalised service and attention to detail. Managed by a host of dedicated staff, Tintswalo Atlantic offers guests nothing less than true Tintswalo hospitality, from the moment that they arrive at this seaside paradise.
Enjoy sundowners on the deck beside the heated pool and share cooking tips with the charming Executive Chef, venture out to the quaint Hout Bay village, or take a drive to the nearby Cape Winelands for an unforgettable wine-tasting adventure. Located just a short, scenic drive from the vibrant city of Cape Town, guests can also embark on a suburban adventure into the heart of one of South Africa’s most exciting and eclectic cultures.
Having been described as the most dramatic and romantic destination in Southern Africa, Tintswalo Atlantic promises to remain an idyllic location to rejuvenate oneself, away from the stresses and distractions of modern living.
Settled on the unfenced western boundary of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, at what seems the very heart of the African bush, lies the private Manyeleti Game Reserve. Sharing this vast wilderness with only two other commercial lodges, Tintswalo Safari Lodge is perfectly located to offer all the raw, natural beauty of Africa, without the usual tourist crowds.
Abounding in wildlife, this 23 000-hectare reserve lends opportunity to experience the continent’s best sightings, including the big five, rare birds, big cats and wild dogs, and colossal herds of general game. Game drives are comfortably hosted by Tintswalo’s fully-accredited, qualified guides and local trackers.
All this is enjoyed from the lap of luxury. Connected by raised wooden walkways, the sumptuous suites are staggered along the banks of a seasonal river. Evoking adventures of early Africa’s European explorers, each king suite is afforded its own personality and story. With indulgent finishes and lavish air-conditioned en-suite bathrooms, each suite possesses its own ample deck, complete with a private plunge pool, where guests may soak in the African sun in total seclusion.
Guests are taken on a culinary adventure when dining at Tintswalo Safari Lodge. Whether enjoying a crisp bush breakfast, or a fresh lunch on the hotel decks, or starlit dinner around a blazing boma fire, under the magnificent Manyeleti sky, imaginative dishes are served with style and panache.
Whether in search of a safari expedition, or sublime wilderness retreat, Tintswalo Safari Lodge transports guests to a place where indulgence is the norm and expectations are met with effortless discretion and grace.
Tintswalo at Waterfall is an intimate boutique hotel offering unparalleled cuisine, exceptional luxury and caring Tintswalo service. The ultimate country experience in the middle of the city, Tintswalo at Waterfall is less than thirty minutes from Johannesburg’s OR Tambo International Airport, and a short drive from the upmarket shopping and business metropolis, Sandton.
The lodge is sprawled out like a massive, elegant barn; the equestrian theme resonates throughout the hotel’s décor. Sixteen spacious king suites offer en-suite bathrooms and quaint balconies with views of the Estate dam or polo fields.
Fully-equipped executive boardrooms offer an intimate setting for small conferences, team workshops, and executive brainstorm sessions. Working from the lap of luxury, conference guests find themselves in the ideal setting to refresh, rejuvenate and refurbish their business strategies.
From the Feed room restaurant’s kitchen, the executive chef team serves up a mouth-watering, 5-star dining experience, with elegant, delicious dishes. Cocktails and culinary treats can also be enjoyed on the outside patio, with the South African sun setting behind the vast polo field – a sublime end to any day in Johannesburg.
Facilities also include a gymnasium on the estate, walking trails to clear the mind, and the indulgent Waterfall Spa to revitalise weary guests. Hosting unforgettable weddings and functions are part for the course at Tintswalo at Waterfall.
