Escape to Tintswalo Atlantic Hotel this Winter

Escape to Tintswalo Atlantic Hotel this Winter[Eugene Yiga] It's hard to believe that it's been two years since Tintswalo Atlantic was almost destroyed in a Cape Town wildfire. If you visit the five-star boutique lodge today, you'll find a place that's risen from the ashes and resumed its position as one of the top spots for a luxury escape.
