In August 2019, I had the pleasure of visiting Tintswalo Lapalala escorting winners of our Roadshow famil.
Lapalala is located in the malaria free Waterberg region of South Africa, approximately 3.5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg. The eco-friendly lodge has 7 theme inspired tented suites all individually decorated paying tribute to the many tribes that roamed Africa centuries ago. They include 3 family suites with plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children. They all have their own plunge pool with inside bathroom plus outdoor bathtub and shower.
The main deck of the lodge overlooks the waterhole for all day game viewing and you enjoy most meals here including delicious boma dinners.
Lapalala is a massive reserve and there is only 3 lodges. How’s the serenity! During our game drives we experienced some great sightings. Unlike some other areas of South Africa, you do have to go looking for the animals but in the meantime you are driving through truly spectacular scenery. The bird life is great and our guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. And to top this off we ended our afternoon game drive with surprise Sundowners with a gin tasting. We went on a bushwalk to see ancient San bushmen paintings followed by a wonderful picnic lunch by the river. This was a truly wonderful experience.
So if your clients want to experience something unique then you can highly recommend Tintswalo Lapalala.
