Tanda Tula Safari Camp overlooks the usually dry bed of the Nlhararumi River on the Western border of Kruger National Park in South Africa in the 53,000 hectare private Timbavati Reserve. The reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park allowing animals free range, and giving guests the opportunity to view the greatest diversity of wildlife that Africa has to offer.
Accommodation & Facilities
Tanda Tula has nine large air-conditioned suites constructed from glass, canvas and gauze, two of which are designed for families and have two bedrooms. The suites have a lounge and dining area, big en-suite bathrooms with an inside bath and an outside shower, and private plunge pools on the decks at the front, overlooking the river bed. The camp has lovely central lounge, library and dining area, an outside bar fireplace, a gym and a larger pool. Meals are often eaten outside under the stars or in the shade of the trees. The camp also has an elevated hide beside a waterhole, where sleep-outs are possible.
Wildlife & Activities
Timbavati is home to a variety of wildlife including wild dog, big cats, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, and numerous bird species. Wildlife is mostly viewed from an open vehicle, and also on walking safaris with an armed ranger. This tends to be done in the early mornings and late afternoons when the animals are at their most active. Sleep-outs and longer walking safaris with a few nights of fly camping are also offered here, and must be pre-arranged.
