Where: Cape Town and Manyeleti Safari | Duration: 6 nights/8 days – 4 Star
Day 1 – Welcome to Africa
Upon arrival in Cape Town, guests will be met by a representative of Opentour Africa who will hand over the travel documents and assist them in collecting their rental car. Guests may then drive themselves to the charming village of Hout Bay and Tintswalo Atlantic
Hout Bay, known by its residents as the ‘republic of Hout Bay’, has only three means of access. Yet it is only 20 minutes’ drive from the city centre, via the coast road past Llandudno and Camps Bay and commuting is a pleasure. Hout Bay is entirely surrounded by mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Up to 15 years ago, it was little more than a fishing village, serviced entirely by one superette, but today it has boomed and offers a wide range of restaurants and pubs.
Nestled at the base of the breathtaking Chapman’s Peak, within the Greater Table Mountain National Park, lies the only lodge on the Atlantic Ocean’s water’s edge. With unsurpassed views, Tintswalo Atlantic provides a unique and romantic setting and offers guests the opportunity to experience absolute tranquility while enjoying the understated elegance and style.

Day 4 – Time for Safari!
After breakfast, guests will drive themselves to Cape Town International airport for the domestic flight to Kruger International airport in Nelspruit. Upon arrival guests will be met by our transfer agent who will road transfer them to Tinswalo Safari Lodge, in Manyeleti Game Reserve bordering on the Kruger National Park. Upon arrival guests will check in before going on the afternoon safari
Manyeleti in the local Shangaan language means Place of Stars, while Tintswalo in the Shangaan language means the intangible feeling of love, gratitude and peace that you bestow upon someone who has given you a meaningful and worthy gift. The Manyeleti is a pristine wilderness reserve which opens in the east to the vastness of the Kruger Park, abounding in big five game and spectacular birdlife. The reserve is unique for its minimal vehicle density and so offering a true exclusive safari experience.
Tintswalo Safari lodge is situated along a seasonal river bed among an ancient sycamore tree grove. With an exclusive collection of six, lavish suites plus a regal presidential suite, Safari Lodge offers the discerning traveler an opportunity to let go of the hustle and bustle of busy business life and take time out to relax and become one with nature.
