Seeking respite from the bustle of modern living, travellers are welcome at Tintswalo at Lapalala Wilderness — a luxury tented safari lodge in the very heart of Southern Africa. Weary guests are invited to unplug and reconnect with nature, allowing their worries to be dwarfed by the more than 100,000-acre Lapalala Wilderness, situated only 185 miles north of Johannesburg and easily accessible by road or air transfer.

Bordered by private reserves and game sanctuaries, the sheer expanse of this unspoiled biosphere offers guests the ultimate in seclusion, dramatic stargazing and wild game-viewing experiences. The reserve is home to more than 16 miles of pristine rivers, meandering through the rolling mountains and canyons of the Waterberg region. Guests can fish in the crystalline mountain waters, swim in the bubbling rapids, take a sundowner cruise or simply enjoy the peaceful scenery, teeming with birdlife.

Without so much as a single power line to spoil the landscape of the Lapalala, the eco-friendly lodge remains completely self-sufficient, offering guests a guilt-free, sustainable safari experience, in the lap of luxury. The seven opulent, spacious tents are raised above the bushveld and connected to the main lodge by raised wooden walkways. Luxuriously furnished and well-appointed, each suite has an en-suite bathroom, private lounge, shower and private plunge pool.

Tintswalo guests with an adventurous spirit can upgrade their luxury tent to a romantic experience under the African skies, spending the night on a comfortably furnished, raised wooden deck in a remote part of the reserve. This experience brings luxury as close to nature as can be imagined.

The Tintswalo at Lapalala kitchen serves mouth-watering cuisine in al fresco dining settings beneath the sparkling Milky Way, or traditional fireside dinners around a blazing boma firepit. The lodge decks and poolside verandahs are sublime locations for delicious al fresco lunches and indulgent African sundowners.

Tintswalo at Lapalala is the latest addition to the prestigious Tintswalo portfolio of boutique luxury lodges in South Africa.
