About This Accommodation

Tanda Tula in the Timbavati Reserve is a little gem which just seems to tick all of our boxes. It is a value for money property which offers lovely tented accommodation, great game viewing, excellent service and additional walking activities.

Public areas are pleasant and nicely decorated with a pool for cooling off in during the summer months. Tanda Tula is a classic tented camp, comfortable but not over the top. Meals are generally served at one long table on the lawn or in the boma, creating a nice communal feel.

Game drives are always an exciting experience. However, in the dense vegetation of the Timbavati, you do have to search a bit harder for animals than in the Sabi Sands. The camp now provides walking trails and sleepouts, and is developing their community visits.

We love Tanda Tula. It is a good mid-range option and we have had consistently enthusiastic feedback from clients. Authentic tented camps are rare in South Africa and we appreciate both the camp's style and the wildlife experience our clients find here. Tanda Tula does, however, share traversing rights with Kings Camp and you are conscious that there are other vehicles around. Children over 8 are accommodated and families are welcome.

What Our Clients Think

A great place. We all really loved the "family" feel of the place. It's great that the staff have their families with them at the lodge. It makes for a great atmosphere. I definitely didn't want to leave...Our driver Patrick and guide Isaac were incredible. Got to take a short hike with them which was so much fun in the bush."

Sumoro and Sian were the absolute BEST driver/tracker combination."

We LOVED Tanda Tula. I almost cried when she left. We did a star bed one night and had a private dinner up there. It was definitely a highlight."

Tanda Tula was cool and fun! The food was excellent."

Amazing!!! So great to feel like you are really in the bush but still have nice amenities. The staff was exceptional! Everyone was so kind and accommodating. It was wonderful to dine with them and get to know everyone. It really did start to feel like one big happy family. Our guide and tracker were very educated and great at what they do; we saw the Big 5 on our very first game drive!"
