      Tanda Tula Safari Camp

      One of the Most Luxurious Tented Bushcamps

      Tanda Tula is located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park, Limpopo. As one of South Africa’s most luxurious tented bushcamps, it offers guests an unforgettable experience in ‘Big 5’ game viewing, warm hospitality and award-winning cuisine. Set on the banks of the Nharalumi riverbed, Tanda Tula is shaded by majestic trees and overlooks a watering hole that attracts abundant wildlife. The area is renowned for its biodiversity, ranging from savannah woodlands to grasslands and riverine glades. Each of the 12 luxury tents is completely private and surrounded by lush riverine bush overlooking the riverbed, epitomizing the ultimate African wildlife experience. Each tent has its own private deck complete with comfortable loungers, which offers guests an opportunity to relax on their own, and absorb the beauty and tranquility of the African bush. Each tent features a beautiful en suite bathroom with a traditional Victorian bathtub and romantic outdoor shower, overlooking the African bush and riverbed. The interiors are furnished in sheer elegance and comfort, ensuring that you will enjoy a true African experience in complete luxury. The infinity pool overlooks a large watering hole which is often frequented by a variety of African wildlife, including the Big 5. The bar and lounge are always open. In the evenings, guests can enjoy a superb dinner in the boma, under the stars in the garden or, for the more adventurous, in the riverbed which runs alongside our safari camp. Here you will enjoy quintessential African cuisine prepared by our highly trained and award-winning chefs. Sumptuous bush breakfasts are served daily at our bush site and, after breakfast, guests can arrange a guided walk back to camp with their ranger. The highly skilled ranger and tracker teams at Tanda Tula Safari Camp guide guests in the early mornings and evenings, in open Land Rovers or on foot. Bush walks provide a unique opportunity for nature lovers and adventure seekers to experience the beautiful African wildlife on foot and up close. Experience the Starbeds, spend an incredible night out under the stars at Machaton Hide, overlooking the spectacular watering hole on the banks of the Machaton riverbed. After an evening game drive, guests will be taken out to the hide with a delicious packed picnic dinner. Special preparations will have been seen to, the oil lanterns lit, comfortable camp beds made with linen and duvets, hot water bottles (in winter) and your favorite night-cap. A game viewing spotlight will help the guests spot the nocturnal visitors to the dam, and a radio with direct connection to the camp will ensure that they feel secure. In the morning, after coffee and rusks, the ranger will collect the guests and the group will immediately head out on a game drive. This experience is available at no extra cost to all our guests.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
