Tanda Tula

  • Bush Breakfast
    Tanda Tula’s Bush Breakfasts are legendary! Hearty fare after an early morning game drive.

    The rangers and trackers here are as good as any we have come across.
  • Luxury Tents
    Understated luxury and extremely comfortable with the best outdoor shower.
  • Excellent Game Viewing
    The Timbavati may lack the sheer volumes of game found in the Sabi Sands but in terms of the quality of sitting you are likely to see, its right up there.

General Information

Tanda Tula is situated in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park. With only a few visitors and a limited number of game-viewing vehicles traversing on thousands of hectares of immaculate African bush, it really offers you an amazing safari experience.

Tanda Tula is renowned as the most luxurious tented camp in South Africa. The thatched East Africa style tents are just beautiful with crisp linen, heaters, fans, outside deck chairs, slippers and stunning bathrooms with a very relaxing Victorian bath and what must be the best outdoor shower in the bush. Each luxury tent overlooks the River, which is dry for most of the year, so you can relax on your spacious and private wooden deck and watch the passing parade.
