IT’S most unusual for luxury hotels and safari lodges to offer discounts and special offers during the peak Christmas holiday season, but as well all know, 2021 turned out to be a most unusual year in many ways.
In the wake of the devastating and disappointing international flight bans introduced in response to the identification of the Omicron Covid strain, a tsunami of hotel cancellations has come in from international travellers. Many of them were planning to spend their end-of-the-year break in the African sun, while numerous South Africans in turn were looking forward to long-awaited family reunions and holidays overseas.
Since it was not to be, the Tintswalo group was quick off the bat to use the new availability across all their lodges to introduce special offers for SADC residents. These offers are set to entice locals to tick their bucket lists, whether it is by booking a luxurious seaside break with their loved ones at the iconic Tintswalo Atlantic and Tintswalo at Boulders Boutique Villa in Cape Town, or a once-in-a-lifetime safari at Tintswalo Safari Lodge in the greater Kruger region, or in the malaria-free Waterberg at Tintswalo Lapalala and the Tintswalo Family Camp at Welgevonden Nature Reserve.
Valid during peak season for travel between 20 December 2021 and 15 January 2022, locals qualify for up to 50% discount. Special fly-in deals are also available with Cemair, flying directly into the bush landing at Hoedspruit from Johannesburg or Cape Town, with a quick road transfer to Tintswalo Safari Lodge.
For those travelling in a small group, the exclusive-use Manor House at Tintswalo Safari Lodge offers the ideal family holiday option at R44 500 per night for 10 people, including all meals and safari activities with a private guide and game viewing vehicle.
Within easy driving distance from Johannesburg, safari deals at Tintswalo Family Camp starts from R3450 per person sharing per night, or R4950 at Tintswalo Lapalala, with rates including all meals and twice daily guided game drives.
Located in idyllic, remote locations close to nature, each of Tintswalo’s small, luxury lodges offer privacy and exclusivity. Here the clean, fresh air affords the opportunity to escape, connect with nature and relax in a stress-free natural environment where there are no crowds.
All Tintswalo lodges have child-friendly accommodation options too, making them ideal destinations for families to spend quality time together. Wifi is offered throughout to make Tintswalo’s lodges ideal destinations for both relaxation and working remotely. Private dining is available if preferred, and in addition to swimming pools, the bush lodges also feature private plunge pools at each guest suite.
