In response to international coronavirus disease (COVID-19) travel restrictions, Tintswalo Lodges has introduced reduced-rate Staycation offers at each of its properties. These deals present locals with as much as 50% discount for self-drive travel until 31 July 2020.

Each of Tintswalo’s small and exclusive luxury lodges are located in beautiful, remote locations close to nature and away from crowds. Guests are invited to escape the city, connect with nature and relax in a peaceful environment.

All Tintswalo lodges have child-friendly accommodation options, making them ideal destinations for families to spend time together during the newly introduced extended school breaks.

Lisa Goosen, CEO of Tintswalo, says that the South African tourism industry has been hard hit by enforced cancellations from international tourists due to the ban on air travel and the global trend to delay overseas travel plans; ‘Many South Africans too are forced to cancel their international travel plans for the year. This has created the opportunity to offer Staycation deals to locals wanting to escape some of the frenzy experienced in cities and populated areas, to enjoy a restful break with loved ones at some of South Africa’s top bucket-list destinations.’

Goosen adds that all Tintswalo staff have been briefed and trained on the property’s prevention action plan to minimise the risk of COVID-19 contamination. This includes the regular disinfection of guest rooms and all communal areas and kitchens, and added sanitation products will be made available to all guests.

Tintswalo’s Staycation deals start from R10 500 for a 2-night break for a family of four at Tintswalo Boulders, or a 2-night stay for two at Tintswalo Atlantic at R10 850 – inclusive of breakfast and afternoon snacks. Safari deals start at R26 000 and include all meals and daily game drives for a 2-night stay for a family of four at Tintswalo Lapalala in the Waterberg or a 2-night safari for two at Tintswalo Safari Lodge. In the same Manyeleti Reserve the Tintswalo Manor House is available at a special Staycation rate of R63 000 per night for a group of 10 people, including all meals and safari activities, or at R65 000 per night for the take-over of the Tintswalo Family Camp at Welgevonden Game Reserve, for 10 people.
