We stopped for four nights in mid August. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left the staff were 100% dedicated and helpful. Day or night, there was always somebody there with a willingness and drive to help make the stay more enjoyable. Game drives were awesome (we were lucky enough to see all our target species) and...

This was the first Safari of our lives, and we opted to do this because I was turning 60. Our travel advisor (Big Five, they are fantastic!) booked us into Tanda Tula even advising them on my birthday. We went there with lomited expectations and were rewarded with a fabulous experience!!

The night drives even included looking at the stars and reading the planets. The game walk was fab. We all learnt so much.

It took me forever to write this review because I wanted to take the time to make it really special. A group of friends from different countries travelled to South Africa for work and wanted to experience a Safari with just the right amount of comfort but still feeling the reserve. Tanda Tula was just that. The tents are amazing... More

I stayed at Tanda Tula for three nights. The staff here is absolutely amazing and they do everything they can to make you feel comfortable, happy and well fed. Tents: The only thing that is tent-like about these tents is that there are canvas walls around you. They are so well-equipped with a fully stocked mini-bar, safe, charging station, bath... More

Stayed 3 nights at tanda Tula. Loved the glamping tents with outdoor shower which face a sand river. The tents are very comfortable and being perched above the river gave us an excellent view of the area. The timbavati area is great to see all the big 5 and we were very lucky to see the rare white lions! All... More

Tanda Tula was really the start of our South African vacation, and it set an extremely high bar for the rest of the trip!! Located not far from Hoedspruit, we felt completely immersed in Africa’s bush. From the open air main building, to our “tents”, we were always in the astounding environment that is Timbavati.
