Tanda Tula Safari Camp is a tented camp situated in the unfenced Timbavati Private Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Set on the banks of the Nharalumi riverbed, Tanda Tula is shaded by large majestic trees, surrounded by riverine bush and overlooking an active waterhole.
The 12 canvas and thatch tents are comfortable with an emphasis on a relaxed, private atmosphere. Each tent features an en-suite bathroom with a traditional Victorian bathtub, a romantic outdoor shower and a private deck with loungers. The main lodge includes an open plan thatched lounge and fireplace that merges into an open sided bar which overlooks the garden. Meals at night are enjoyed in the boma, in the garden under the stars, or the riverbed which runs alongside the camp; and breakfasts are served daily at a secluded bush site. There is an infinity pool overlooking a waterhole and a hide at Machaton Dam for private picnics and the “starbeds” experience (extra charge, maximum four guests).
This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
