Tintswalo Lapalala announced the 50 percent price reduction for South Africans at the new family-friendly luxury tented camp in the Waterberg. The reduced prices cover luxury accommodation, all meals, laundry, wifi and twice daily safari experiences.
Beverages, spa treatments and other extras are excluded. Special rates are available for children and the offer is valid until 15 December 2019.
Located 300km from Johannesburg, it is one of only two commercial lodges within the Lapalala Wilderness Reserve, one of the largest private reserves in South Africa, which stretches across 44 500 hectares (108 000 acre).
The lodge is environmentally conscious and is operated entirely off the grid to accommodate a total of 16 adults and four children in seven luxury tented suites with private plunge pools, fireplaces and en-suite bathrooms, some with outdoor baths and showers.
The accommodation also includes a luxury unit of two suites for friends and family travelling together, as well as two individual family tented suites, each with an adjacent bedroom for two children.
Tintswalo Lapalala is child-friendly and days are filled with activities for families with children of all ages, including a dedicated Children’s Activity Programme. Boasting classic savannah biomes, Tintswalo Lapalala offers low impact game viewing with daily game drives and guided bush walks. However, the sheer expanse of the vast, game-rich reserve offers seclusion and a multitude of unique wilderness experiences far beyond the chase of the Big 5.
These include guided walks to rock art and iron age sites and visits to the famous community based Lapalala Wilderness School and the endangered wildlife breeding programme, which include species such as sable and roan antelope.
With 27km of pristine river frontage throughout the reserve, the Palala River presents guests with the unique opportunity to fish the crystalline mountain waters or swim in the bubbling rapids. Other relaxing pursuits include sundowner cruises and riverside picnics, birdwatching and stargazing, or pampering spa treatments.
Mouth-watering, wholesome cuisine is served al fresco on poolside verandas overlooking the waterhole, or at various secret locations within the reserve, and on balmy evenings around a blazing firepit beneath the Milky Way.
