About Tindlovu – Leave our establishments as part of our family.

“Elephants love reunions. They recognise one another after years of separation and greet each other with wild, boisterous joy” – Jennifer Richards Jacobson

We Are Tindlovu

When Tindlovu first started operating in 2012, founder Jo-Anne White was fulfilling a passion to combine warm hospitality and South African inspired cuisine with her core values that include community, quality, ubuntu and experience. We want our guests to experience the beauty of our establishments and not to leave as just guests but as part of our family.

Whenever you visit any of our Tindlovu establishments, whether it is your first time or a return visit,  there will always be that feeling of community that surpasses all other emotions.

Tindlovu Group has established a number of beautiful restaurants in the camps of the Kruger National Park; Olifants, Letaba, Berg en Dal and Afsaal Traders Post. We have also been fortunate enough to grow our footprint to the Lowveld Botanical Gardens in Nelspruit, with both Tindlovu at The Gardens Restaurant and Red Fig by Tindlovu, a Country Lodge in White River, the Baobab Spa by Tindlovu in Malelane, our beautiful oceanside restaurant in Camps Bay. We also have our stunning restaurant at Zevenwacht Wine Estate.

About Tindlovu

Chris Papayannes

Group General Manager

“The philosophy during development was to freshen up familiar favourites, and also to showcase local flavours through current trends. The general consensus with South African food has always been that one can expect platters of meat and heavy stews – we wanted to reinvent this idea and show that local cuisine can be approachable and appealing to all palates.”
