Tintswalo Lodges will be opening two new properties in October 2018 with the launch of Tintswalo at Lapalala Wilderness in the Waterberg (Limpopo province) and Tintswalo at Boulders Boutique Villa, a private villa overlooking Boulders beach and its world-famous penguin colony. Completing the current Tintswalo portfolio is flagship properties Tintswalo Atlantic in Cape Town, as well as Tintswalo Safari Lodge and Tintswalo Manor House in the Manyeleti Game Reserve.
Family owned and managed, properties within the Tintswalo portfolio are defined by their stunning locations close to nature, warm hospitality and attention to detail, as well as the unique experiences on offer to guests. Says Lisa Goosen, CEO of Tintswalo Lodges: ‘After operating Tintswalo successfully for the past 15 years, preparation meets opportunity and we are thrilled to announce the expansion of the Tintswalo brand.’
Tintswalo at Lapalala Wilderness, a family-friendly camp of six luxury tents with private plunge pools will be opening on 1 October 2018. Lapalala Wilderness is situated in the malaria-free Waterberg region, three hours’ drive (or 30 minutes flying) from Johannesburg. Tintswalo at Lapalala is one of only two commercial lodges within 44 500 hectares of untouched wilderness. Sleeping up to 12 adults and four children, the Tintswalo at Lapalala Wilderness camp is environmentally conscious and will be operated ‘off the grid’. The Lapalala Wilderness Reserve was founded in 1981 by conservation champions, Dale Parker and Clive Walker. One of the largest private reserves in SA, it includes 27km of pristine river frontage. With several Research and Breeding programmes of endangered wildlife, as well as its famous Wilderness School, it offers an engaging safari experience and is a champion of sustainable wildlife conservation with the vision to leave a legacy for generations to come.
On 1 October 2018 Tintswalo at Boulders Boutique Villa will be opening in Cape Town, surrounded by fynbos and with unobstructed views across Boulders Beach, which is known all over the world for its resident colony of endangered African penguins. With a total of nine double suites, as well as a children’s suite, Boulders Boutique Villa will operate on a bed and breakfast basis, or as a private villa. Exclusive-use options include either four suites only, or the entire villa for groups of friends or families travelling together for extended stays of four nights or more. Known for its pristine swimming beaches and the penguins as star attraction, Boulders is located on route to Cape Point. Like sister property Tintswalo Atlantic, it also forms part of the Table Mountain National Park.
