Tanda Tula

Experience nature unfolding in the Greater Kruger National Park on a modern safari with a stay at Tanda Tula. Elephant herds feeding. Hyenas denning. Ground hornbills foraging. Termites building empires. Newly rearchitected Tanda Tula Safari Camp takes full advantage of its position on the Nhlaralumi River in South Africa’s Timbavati Private Nature Reserve to create intimate guest experiences across the breadth of the camp. Offering two unique experiences with a modern safari camp and field camp stays. Nine hybrid canvas and glass suites open to an endlessly entertaining but incredibly peaceful bushveld setting. A secluded hide. An inviting library. An open-air bar. Places to gather or to be alone. The interiors honor South Africa’s Tsonga people, the first custodians of this land. Modern luxuries ensure your every need is met. And, the camp is energy efficient. Solar-powered and water-wise.

Expect breathtaking natural light. Walls that disappear. Shades and textures that reflect your wild surroundings.  The deep aubergine of a purple pod cluster leaf. Wonderfully textured wood. The green shades of the silver cluster leaf trees. The intricate patterns in traditional Tsonga design. Contemporary local art. Fine linens. The pulse of the wild. And it’s deep calm.

Each suite is positioned overlooking the stunning Nhlaralumi riverbed with sweeping views of the bush. The entire front of the suite is a combination of sliding glass doors and canvas sliding walls, allowing the light to flood in. Outdoor covered decks and private plunge pools, ideal for dining and relaxing, with sunken bench seating – bringing you closer to nature.

These ecologically sensitive suites are fully ‘off grid’, powered by solar with water wise systems.

7 x Safari Suites which consist of one bedroom with an en-suite bathroom, lounge area and private plunge pool. Ideal for couples and single guests.

2 x Family Suites which consist of two bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom and a shared lounge area and private plunge pool. Ideal for families with children or friends travelling together Suite 3 is configured for guests with disabilities.

Guided game drive

Our game drives go beyond the ordinary to give guests unforgettable wildlife experiences in the Timbavati and Klaserie reserves.

Guided walks

Guided walks through the wilds of the Timbavati and Klaserie Private Nature Reserves are more deep immersions than strenuous hikes.


The Timbavati’s birdlife tells its own story. Of ancient riverine trees. Of seasonal fruits. Of interdependencies. Love and courtship. Life and death.


Tracking is the first science. It's the language of our ancestors. And one that our expert trackers still speak fluently.


Every ancient people had its cosmology, its stories written in the stars. The dark, unpolluted skies above Tanda Tula still tell these stories, and our guides are fluent in them


Spa. Gym. Both. Or either. Whichever facility you choose, you’ll leave with a rejuvenated body and mind.
