As there are no fences between the Timbavati and Kruger National Park, game are able to roam freely between the two, offering guests an incredible African wildlife experience.

The highly skilled ranger and tracker teams guide our guests in the early mornings and evenings, in open Land Rovers or on foot. Tanda Tula Safari Camp is also proud to be the first in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve to offer a unique, Overnight Walking Safari experience (contact Lodge Trackers for more information).

Tanda Tula is the oldest safari camp in the Timbavati. Steeped in history, the roots go back many generations linking conservation and the Shangaan culture, and their joy is sharing it with the world. The Timbavati is also home to the very rare white lions.

Set on the banks of the Nharalumi riverbed in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, Tanda Tula Safari Camp is shaded by majestic trees and overlooks a watering hole. Each of the 12 luxury tents is completely private and surrounded by lush riverine bush overlooking the riverbed, epitomising the ultimate African wildlife experience.
