Tanda Tula Safari Camp

Tanda Tula Safari Camp, Timbavati

Renowned as the oldest safari camp in the Timbavati Game Reserve, now part of the Greater Kruger National Park, Tanda Tula Safari Camp has made a fantastic name for itself among wildlife enthusiasts and safari experts. The camp ethic runs deep into its rich past and all the staff and owners want to do is share this South African wilderness paradise with the rest of the world.

Tanda Tula is an owner-run tented camp designed in a rustic chic style and offering unmatched hospitality and service, not to mention mouth-watering food and an East African heritage that just cannot be ignored. It permeates the wonderful decor, tastefully selected to enhance the earthy surroundings and to blend in quietly with the lush Big Five territory.

Tanda Tula Safari Camp Overview

Cleverly designed accommodation in 12 en-suite luxurious tents boasts outside showers, traditional Victorian bathtubs and amazing private decks from which guests can game view on comfy loungers. These tented homes are elegant and graceful and ideal for honeymoon couples.

Tanda Tula is completely unfenced allowing game to move through the camp. The lodge is open-plan and set under huge trees beside an active waterhole. After evening game drives, guests are treated to an authentic boma dinner under starry skies in the garden or in the riverbed. Food creations are mainly traditional African and bring in modern touches – all food is guaranteed to please.

Bush breakfasts are another unique experience at Tanda Tula Safari Camp – enjoyed at secret locations deep in the heart of the Timbavati Game Reserve, in the famed Kruger National Park of South Africa. Thereafter, guests are lead by experienced game rangers in walks they will never forget. It is hard to imagine that this safari camp is part of some 20 000 hectares of undisturbed biodiversity which guests become part of, just for a while!
