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!

Republic of the Congo & Central African Republic

WHAT WE LOVE: The Republic of the Congo and Central African Republic, both former French colonies, are 2 of the 6 countries across which the Congo Basin expands. Second in size to the mighty Amazon, the forests of the Congo Basin contain the greatest number of mammals, primates, birds, amphibians, fish and swallowtail butterflies in Africa. More than a 1,000 species of bird can be found here. The basin is a total of 3.7 million km2 and is home to some of the largest undisturbed stands of tropical rainforest on the planet, in addition to large wetlands. Connecting two of the most iconic locations - Odzala-Kokoua and Dzanga-Sangha National Parks - within this rainforest wilderness offers the most exciting opportunity to discover a part of Africa in a truly pioneering way, while making a significant contribution to the long-term conservation and community sustainability of this region. This is no longer the 'Heart of Darkness'. This is Africa unmasked, beautiful and powerful. This is the most exciting destination to be opening to tourism. This is CONGO CONSERVATION COMPANY waiting for you to discover the most remarkable and unspoilt natural wonders of the continent.
