My wife and I were lucky enough to spend 3 nights at Tanda Tula in May and did not want to leave at the end of our stay. Everything about our stay from the accommodation itself, the food, service and safari were absolutely perfect. The morning and evening Game Drives were awesome - our Guide Scotch and Tracker Jack found...

We came to Tanda Tula in the Timbavati Reserve just along side Kruger National Park. The camp is smack in the middle of the bush allowing all animals 24-7 access to the grounds (elephants excluded in order to keep the trees and vegetation intact). At night traveling back to your tent with a guide is a must. Dale, Hailey, Foreman...

I highly recommend this Camp. We had an amazing safari experience. Not only did we see the Big Five, but we had several great viewings (lions mating, lions eating an impala, elephants playing in the mud). Our guide and tracker (Scotch and Jack) were top notch. The accommodations and food were also terrific. But, most importantly, the staff was outstanding...

This is a very late review I know, but the fact that it has been nagging in the back of my mind, shows just how much of a fantastic impact this place made on me. We did a number of different safari lodges, but this was the best. First up - the staff. Wonderful, accommodating and friendly without a hint...

Words cannot describe what a perfect 4 days we had at Tanda Tula, and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to see incredible wildlife (the big 5, and so much more!), be totally pampered (the food is out of the world, and everything at the hotel is luxury), and feel a part of the family (much of the staff...

Tanda Tula is an amazing place. Since the moment you arrive at the camp, staff makes you feel at home. They think of every last detail that makes the experience a great one.

We treated ourselves to 4 nights here and had the most amazing experience. From the moment you arrive you feel you are a part of the Tand Tula family and they look after your every need. From the food to the rooms, relaxation and the magnificent animals, this is a memorable holiday destination.

While in Timbavati we stayed at two camps and hands down, Tanda Tula was our favorite.The camp offers a truly magical safari experience. Some of my favorites were, the morning bush breakfast, sun downer gin & tonics, returning to camp on a bush walk, dinner with management and a ranger, the rangers, staff and management. Scotch was an amazing ranger...he...
