The Tindlovu start-up took place in the Kruger National Park, with our first restaurant based at the Mopani Camp. One restaurant already felt like an absolute success and little did we know that nine more would follow.
Our current Kruger Park restaurant portfolio includes Mopani, Shingwedzi, Punda Maria, Letaba, Olifants, Satara, Berg en Dal, and the Afsaal Traders Rest.
We have also recently expanded beyond the borders of the Park with the opening of our restaurants at the Lowveld National Botanical Gardens in Nelspruit, a multi-venue operation at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria and in Camps Bay on the sought-after Cape Town Atlantic Seaboard.
Tindlovu’s core values are quality, service, experience and community. We strive to offer our guests the best quality in everything that we put forward. We believe that service is ultimately what makes or breaks even the most attractive concept, which is why we endeavor to offer a truly unforgettable experience at each and every point of contact. Our goal is for each and every guest to leave with Tindlovu imprinted on their hearts forever.
Community is at the heart of our philosophy. We take care of our own in order to take care of all.
Our concept is a strong focus in bringing a unique South African experience to the table. Over the years we have
realised a particular interest and excitement from international guests seeking an authentic local offering, as well as a loyal local client base seeking a bit of nostalgia. Because of this, our expansion outside of the Kruger National Park has created a stir amongst landlords of sought-after tourist destinations.
It is only fitting that we proudly employ individuals from surrounding areas in an effort to improve local economy, offer community and youth upliftment and of course deliver the warm hospitality that South Africans are renowned for.
Tindlovu Corporate Services proudly offers comprehensive initial and on-going support in terms of financial, human capital, procurement, marketing and operational management.
Our Franchisees are empowered and provided the necessary tools for success, with our dedicated Head Office Team
available for consultation and continuously striving for progression and growth in an ever-changing industry.
Tindlovu looks to engage with passionate, like-minded individuals in order to build long-lasting partnerships.
While we do not base such partnerships on specific criteria or education level, we do recognize the value in working
with owner-operators, assisting them with turning a dream into reality.
Our steadfast business model, comprehensive management packages and on-going support is also a definite advantage when setting up a restaurant of your own, with the intention of it running independently and without
an extensive time investment.
We believe that a franchise, although beneficial from a standardized point of view, should also in the smallest sense
show off a bit of character. This is why we are excited about consulting directly with potential franchisees and
tailor-making a package that works for you.
