Profile: Tanda Tula

October 20, 2012  By: Gretchen

South Africa’s Tanda Tula Safari Camp (‘to love the quiet’) is situated in the heart of the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park.  As one of South Africa’s most luxurious tented bushveld lodges, guests can expect an unforgettable experience in game viewing, warm hospitality and award-winning cuisine. Consisting of 12 luxurious tents, Tanda Tula Safari Camp exudes elegance and combines comfort and style with African roots. The open plan lodge, which is completely unfenced, merges luxury with the natural environment.

Tanda Tula Safari Camp is sanctuary to Africa’s Big Five, with approximately 50,000 acres of wilderness and undisturbed biodiversity. As there are no fences between the Timbavati and Kruger National Park, game are able to roam freely between the two, offering guests an incredible African wildlife experience.

Tanda Tula has highly skilled ranger and tracker teams to guide guests in the early mornings and evenings, in open Land Rovers or on foot. Tanda Tula Safari Camp is also proud to be the first in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve to offer a unique, Overnight Walking Safari experience. 

Tanda Tula is the oldest safari camp in the Timbavati. Steeped in history, its roots go back many generations linking conservation and the Shangaan culture. The Timbavati is also home to the very rare white lions, which some very lucky guests recently spotted.

We’ll  be visiting again in December and will bring you the latest from this wonderful camp!

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

Pick a Destination

Africa is enormous. There are endless things to see and do, and it can’t all be done in one trip. That said, we realize that many people believe that a trip to Africa is ‘once in a lifetime’ (though many more end up realizing once is not enough!). What do you most want to see? What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
