Tintswalo Safari Lodge prides itself on offering guests an authentic African Safari experience. Being located on prime territory, the Manyeleti Game Reserve is nestled amidst the unfenced borders of the Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands and the Timbavati Reserves. Sitting in the heart of very this wilderness region, Tintswalo guests are treated to every imaginable wildlife sighting, including the Big Five, a variety of birdlife and small game, and colossal herds of large game.
Tintswalo Safari Lodge’s guides are hand-picked from among the very best candidates, selected for their knowledge, their passion for wildlife and their personal ability to be-friend guests and keep them entertained for the long hours spent together on game drives.
Trackers are sourced locally, many hailing from the native Shangaan communities, offering guests insights into the region’s local tradition and folklore. The trackers are truly gifted in their ability to track animals, prior to the game drives, using spoor and subtle signs of movement left in the bushveld.
Surrounded by seasonally inundated floodplains and papyrus swamps, Wilderness Jacana is an intimate island experience with just five tents built on raised wooden decks to maximise the amazing views of the broad channels fronting the camp. The main area is set on double storey, elevated platforms nestled between magnificent sycamore trees, surrounded by dense wild date palms and an enormous canopy of mangosteens. The pool, raised bar area, jetty and floating fire deck, as well as the expansive viewing deck take in the quintessential true water camp experience of the Okavango Delta scenery.
Situated on a private island within the Jao Reserve, in the scenic western region of the Okavango Delta, Wilderness Jacana consists of five canvas tented accommodations on elevated decks, blending pleasantly, with their natural surroundings. Each with indoor and outdoor showers, as well as a luxurious bath under the open sky. The large tents at Wilderness Jacana make the perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying amazing views over the seasonal floodplains.
Land-based game drives are offered when the inundation levels are lower, typically in the summer months. These drives can reveal the likes of elephant, zebra and other plains game, as well as the potential sightings of predators of the area such as lions, hyaenas, and African wild dogs.
Seasonal fishing with a limited supply of basic equipment (spinner rods and a small range of lures) is offered on a catch and release basis.
