Two of Tintswalo’s properties received the nod in the recently announced 2021 Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards. Tintswalo Safari Lodge is retaining its spot as one of the Top 20 Resorts in South Africa, while Tintswalo Atlantic was included in the Top 30 Hotels in Southern Africa list for the first time.
Earlier this year, Chefs Warehouse at Tintswalo Atlantic also received international recognition when it was named one of the best new restaurants in the world on the Condé Nast Traveller Hot List 2021. The Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. In this year’s competition, more than 800,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted responses rating their travel experiences across the globe.
Tintswalo’s bush and beach boutique properties are situated in some of South Africa’s most magnificent, unspoiled locations. Lisa Goosen, the CEO of Tintswalo Lodges says: ‘Tintswalo is a small, family-owned and managed conservation tourism company and we have some of the best management and staff in the luxury safari and travel industry on our team. We are delighted to add the prestigious 2021 Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards to our growing list of accolades and are proud to offer our guests a unique experience to showcase our beautiful country.’
In the local Shangaan language, the name Tintswalo means ‘the intangible feeling of love, gratitude and peace bestowed upon someone offering you a meaningful and worthy gift’.
