We stayed at Tanda Tula Safari Camp in June 2015 with another two couples. From the moment we were collected from the airport , the experience was amazing. Staff were very friendly and so skilled in their knowledge of the African Bush and wildlife.The tented accommodation was luxurious and the meals created by the chef- delicious and plentiful. But the...

I had the most amazing time at Tanda Tula! I was on an African expedition with my family and friends two winters ago; we visited Johannesburg, Timbavati and Cape Town in South Africa, as well as Botswana and Zambia. My favorite part of the trip was easily our stay at the Tanda Tula Lodge in the Timbavati nature reserve. We...

This was my first safari camp experience and it set the bar very high for any other safari lodges. The ambience was wonderful with the nightly family dining with the guides, the staff providing local entertainment, and the setting with the watering hole behind the pool. The chefs food selections and preparations were top notch. The bedding in the tents...

This camp has been a sentimental favorite since our first visit many years ago and we liked it even more this time. We had great game drives and enjoyed our luxury "tents". One night our guide to the tent spotted a leopard in the bushes and was able to show it to us with the flashlight! Thrilling stuff! The meals...

We had an amazing 3 night stay at Tanda Tula as part of our honeymoon. We had incredible 'up close' encounters with leopards, lions, cheetahs, rhinos, elephants, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, antelope (of all forms), hyenas and more. Our guides and trackers went the extra mile to ensure we had an amazing experience (and were extremely professional). The tents and the...

Tanda Tula was the first stop on our honeymoon in South Africa and after our 4 nights there, we told ourselves we could have gone back home right then and been satisfied. Everything far exceeded our expectations. Having no prior knowledge of safari camps, it was a daunting search to find a place for us but the previous TripAdvisor reviews...

This was the perfect holiday for a family with older teenagers. Everyone was engaged and had an incredible experience. Every safari had something amazing to see, and we saw so much. The tents were great, and the main lodge was very inviting. Special thanks to Dale, Civilised and Jack, and to Chef Ryan. Loved the bush breakfasts and the formal...

I went to Tanda Tula with my family last month. Since we arrived, they made us feel like home. The crew is just amazing. Super kind people and very professional. The place is beautiful. I loved the experience. The food was delightful. Our guide (Brett Horley) was awesome, from the minute the Safari started, we could tell this guy knew...

The series of tents here are tall and under a roof with a built bathroom attached so it is luxurious if cold at night in the winter (but there was an electric blanket in the bed). The situation is great, with a waterhole right there on the other side of the swimming pool. Game wander through the camp at all...

We had the tremendous fortune to spend two nights at the Tanda Tula Safari Camp. What an absolutely amazing experience! I would highly recommended this property to those people that want a more rustic safari adventure without sacrificing creature comforts. The “tents” were extremely well appointed and comfortable without losing the idea that you are "camping out" in the wild....
