We recently spent two nights in Tanda Tula. It is really an amazing camp. First, any safari trip should include a tented camp, and I would definitely recommend Tanda Tula. Staying in a tent is a unique experience - the sounds of the bush, the cool winter air, wakeup by someone bringing a tray to your tent with coffee and tea, overlooking the riverbed and the bush - make for both five star luxury and a feeling of being out in nature. The game viewing is comparable to the other camps we were in - that is, plentiful and spectacular. Tanda Tula is somewhat more expensive than the other camps we were in, but alcohol and drinks were included. The level of service was exceptional. Forman and Given, our Ranger and Tracker, were great, always taking the time to answer our questions and explain what we were doing. Chef Ryan really cares about his food - the Kudu stew in particular was terrific. The rest of the staff is as friendly as possible. The camp is relatively small (we were 13 people and there was only one other family there) and felt really intimate. Breakfast outside on the riverbed was a nice touch. We loved it.
