Set amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Nlharalumi Riverbed, in the heart of the Timbavati Game Reserve, this intimate camp of just 12 tents embodies grounded African elegance and the romance of the wild. The warmth of the people who live and work there sparks a safari of self-discovery, and immersion within the rhythms of the African wilderness.

The exquisite twelve canvas and thatch tents are comfortable, with an emphasis on a relaxed, private atmosphere. Each tent at Tanda Tula Safari Camp features an en-suite bathroom with a traditional Victorian bathtub, a dreamy, romantic outdoor shower and a private deck with loungers. The main lodge is warmly decorated, with inviting couches and armchairs. It includes a spacious thatched lounge where you can sit near the crackling fire and catch up with friends or other guests or enjoy some of the finest African wines at the open sided bar which overlooks the garden. Nighttime meals are enjoyed either in the boma, the garden under the stars, or the riverbed, which runs alongside the camp. The welcoming infinity pool overlooks an active waterhole.

Early morning and evening game drives are conducted in open vehicles in the game-rich Big 5 Timbavati Reserve by experienced, passionate guides. No evening game drive would be complete without an iconic sundowner stop and Tanda Tula has this down to fine art. The optional guided daily walks are a highlight.
