Top of our wish list … to travel with the family

Trying to keep up with can we buy wine, can we walk in the park, can we travel, is exhausting. But we’ve found one rather special travel option we think will work – just be sure to time your arrival before our 9pm curfew.

Tintswalo Lodges has introduced a self-catering option for families and friends … exclusive-use, self-catering options are available at three of the lovely Tintswalo properties.

With a choice of a safari or a coastal breakaway for a group of up to 10 people, the self-catering options are available at the Manor House at Tintswalo Safari Lodge in the greater Kruger area, the Tintswalo Family Camp in the Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg, and Tintswalo at Boulders Boutique Villa in Simon’s Town.

The Manor House at Tintswalo Safari Lodge in the Manyeleti Private Nature Reserve has spacious lounge and dining areas and deep, shady patios that are ideal for relaxation. The traditionally styled private villa has five bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, two with outside baths for indulgent soaks under starlit skies. Welcoming children of all ages, the family-friendly destination comes with a swimming pool and rolling lawns protected by game fencing, overlooking a waterhole that offers excellent game viewing 24/7.

Tintswalo Family Camp Welgevonden in the malaria-free Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg ranks among SA’s largest private game reserves and boasts a great variety of game, including the Big Five. There are five spacious, freestanding luxury units, a main lodge with lovely lounges where fireplaces keep things cosy, a swimming pool with poolside loungers and a viewing deck overlooking the waterhole. It’s child-friendly and protected by electric fencing against predators and dangerous game to allow children the freedom to enjoy the outside areas.

With unobstructed views across Boulders Beach and its world-famous resident colony of endangered African penguins, Tintswalo at Boulders Boutique Villa boasts a unique beachfront location. With luxurious suites, open-plan lounges with fireplaces, a TV room, outdoor terraces, and a wind-protected courtyard with a fire pit, as well as a sea view pool on the top deck, this is indeed a luxurious getaway.

The rate is R25 000 a night deal for 10 people, with a minimum stay of two nights. The lodges are fully serviced and all health precautions and safety protocols are fully complied with. Safari options also include two safari activities a day, a safari vehicle and the services of a guide, as well as a private chef, housekeeping, laundry and Wi-Fi. Excluded are food and beverages and gratuities. Details: 021-773-0900 or tintswalo.com
