About Us

Tintswalo is a family-owned and managed collection of authentic bush and beach boutique lodges that invites guests to experience some of Southern Africa’s most magnificent, unspoiled destinations. In the Shangaan language, the name Tintswalo means ‘the intangible feeling of love, gratitude and peace bestowed upon someone offering you a meaningful and worthy gift’.

There are six lodges within the Tintswalo Collection, situated in five unique locations. With great emphasis placed on sustainability and environmental footprint, each lodge has been meticulously considered, designed with low-impact, unobtrusive structures and managed according to eco-friendly practices.

Perched oceanside on a pebbled beach at the foot of Chapmans Peak, the award-winning boutique hotel, Tintswalo Atlantic is surrounded by the Table Mountain National Park, and is renowned as one of Cape Town’s most precious hidden gems. In Simon’s Town on the southern side of the Cape Peninsula, Tintswalo Boulders is located on Boulders Beach with views across the world-famous colony of endangered African penguins.

Sharing an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, Tintswalo Safari is hidden within the pristine Manyeleti Private Nature Reserve, known for some of the best game viewing in South Africa. In the same private concession, Tintswalo Manor offers a luxurious, fully-catered private lodge for families or small groups seeking a tailor-made stay on an exclusive-use basis. Only three hours’ drive from Johannesburg, Tintswalo Waterberg is a comfortable family-friendly or corporate safari retreat within Limpopo’s malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve, complete with the option of a kosher kitchen.

In Zambia, Tintswalo Siankaba presents an authentic African adventure with tented accommodation on two small, private islands in the mighty Zambezi River.

‘With some of the best management and staff in the luxury hospitality industry on our team, we offer authentic South African hospitality as part of the unique Tintswalo experience to showcase our beautiful continent,’ says CEO, Lisa Goosen.
