I went here as a part of my honeymoon on the recommendation of a travel agent. Neither my husband nor I had ever been on safari, so we didn't know what to expect.
What can I say? The staff were unbelievably friendly, helpful and accommodating. The attention to detail was amazing - even though they really took care of us they never felt intrusive as staff sometimes can.
Every single game drive was thrilling and awesome in itself. We saw all the big 5 as well as loads of others. We even saw a cheetah on a kill (although unsuccessful!)
Dinner each evening was a new experience and there was a nice mix of casual dinners around a fire as well as a more formal evening with full service. As we were on honeymoon, a special private dinner was arranged and we returned from the afternoon drive that day to a beautifully set table on the terrace of our tent, a candlelit bath and flower petals strewn on the bed. It was truly the perfect evening. We had our own private waitress and the quality of service and food wouldn't have been out of place in a top London hotel.
I was most looking forward to seeing all the animals when I was preparing for my trip, and I throughly enjoyed every minute on game drive, but on leaving South Africa, it's the people who really made it special.
I would recommend Tanda Tula without hesitation. We are looking forward to our next stay here. Well done and thank you.
