UNUSUAL ARCHITECTURE

Tintswalo is an unusually designed luxury thatched lodge, with walls made of layered stone evoking the ancient civilisations of Thulamela and Mapungubwe to the north.

PEACEFUL PLACE

Manyeleti means “place of the stars” in Shangaan, and as a lesser developed Big Five private reserve, it lives up to its name with little light pollution to the milky way. A very low vehicle density enables you to be spoiled by uninterrupted game viewing. You may see cheetah with luck.
