Shot in the Timbavati
30 October 2019

New images, website & availability

and yes, we do have space!

GREATER KRUGER NATIONAL PARK: Have you seen the images shot in the Timbavati for TANDA TULA? We love how it captures the warmth and soul experienced on safari here.

Their tagline "Celebrate, Explore, Inspire, Connect" is apt - it's so much more than just a safari. Tanda Tula is about family, people and connection. This is safari with soul.

It's an exciting time for Tanda Tula with a few announcements:

  • AVAILABILITY - shown on our website as the number of rooms available (previously it showed the room rate), with room rate (RACK) showing on hover. Currently only available for Tanda Tula Safari Camp, but watch this space for updates on that.
  • IMAGES - our Dropbox library has been updated with these new images, as well as the SAFARI CAMP, FIELD CAMP and RISHILÉ CAMP pages on our website.
  • WEBSITE - Tanda Tula has launched its own brand-new website and we love the fresh new design and ease-of-use.

Everyone agrees that Tanda Tula's people are the heart and soul of the experience. The fun starts at home!


A renowned location where you can see utterly wild predators just a few hours' drive from Johannesburg.


This is what sets a safari apart - exceptional guiding and a team who strives to please. Vusi's coffee-making skills has him dubbed Tanda Tula's Coffee Jedi.


Breathe in the warm air, smell the bush, cool off in Safari Camp's pool while overlooking a waterhole. Cherish the siesta - you may end up dancing away the night.


Whether it is a surprise gin cocktail stop (one of our top sunset experiences) or a lovingly prepared boma dinner, the Tanda Tula team knows all about creating those special moments on safari.

Having just been in the USA, Tanda Tula is clearly one of the darlings on the South African safari scene, and guest feedback is fantastic. It's an easy sell with straightforward access and slam-dunk combinations with the Eastern Cape ( Kwandwe Private Game Reserve), Winelands (La Clé des Montagnes) and/or Mozambique (Azura Benguerra Island), providing a unique canvas safari in a renowned location of South Africa.
Happy selling!

1500km east of mainland East Africa lies an archipelago of 115 islands collectively known as Seychelles. The outer islands, with a land area of 220 km2 make up almost half of the land area of Seychelles and 2% of its population. These outer islands comprise 9 important bird areas, the largest population of giant tortoises, nesting grounds for turtles, over 180 bird species, 320 species of coral, over 1000 fish species, spinner dolphins, humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, pilot whales, melon-headed whales and even the elusive dugong.

Within the outer islands is the Alphonse Group, the coral islands of Alphonse, St Francois and Bijoutier, about 1 hour's flight and 250km from Mahé. Just over 1000 km southwest of Mahé you find the Aldabra Group, including Cosmoledo and Astove Atolls. An atoll is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. There may be coral islands or cays on the rim. The coral of the atoll often sits atop the rim of an extinct seamount or volcano which has eroded or subsided partially beneath the water. The lagoon forms over the volcanic crater or caldera while the higher rim remains above water or at shallow depths that permit the coral to grow and form the reefs.

It is amidst this vast oceanic playground that you will find Blue Safari Seychelles.


Kwandwe Uplands Homestead

Uplands Homestead strikes a perfect mix between the genteel and the wild. The elegant and refined interiors, with their damask linens, antique silver and porcelain, create the ideal foil for the rugged bushveld and wildlife outside. Furnished with authentic antiques and memorabilia reminiscent of a stately Settler home from the 1820s, stylish modern comforts have been added, such as exquisitely appointed bathrooms, air conditioning, private verandas for each suite and a contemporary farmstyle kitchen. There is also a full size swimming pool and gazebo set amongst rolling lawns, surrounded on all sides by sweeping slopes decorated with hundreds of aloes.

The heart of any farmhouse is its kitchen, and Uplands is no exception. With its wrought iron chandeliers and modern catering equipment cleverly represented as traditional cookware, the Uplands kitchen is the Homestead’s quaint and welcoming core. Your dedicated, skilled chef will create both old family favourites and sumptuous new dishes to inspire and delight. Meals are served in the dining area, where friends and family gather to share the day’s adventures. Plush chairs in the sitting room invite hours of relaxation, while the green lawns and sparkling pool create a perfect outlet for youthful energy.

Three suites with private bathrooms combine modern comfort with old-fashioned luxury and attention to detail. Antique mirrors, claw-foot bathtubs and yellowwood chests and wardrobes blend seamlessly with air-conditioning, in-room safes and other modern conveniences. Your dedicated 4x4 safari vehicle and private guide/ranger awaits outside, ready at any time to take you on a voyage of discovery through Kwandwe’s wild open spaces and return you to the warmly lit comfort of your Home away from Home.
