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!

São Tomé and Príncipe

Príncipe is an adventure. A tiny island topped by a canopy of green broken by spires of primordial rock, join us to discover this magnificent lost world, offering fantastic beaches, jungle exploration, snorkelling, fishing and birdwatching.

As the smaller, northern major island of the country of São Tomé and Príncipe lying off the west coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Príncipe has an area of 136 square kilometres (53 sq mi) and a population of approximately 7,000. The island is a heavily eroded volcano speculated to be over three million years old. Here you will discover a place that time forgot and where you feel you have stepped off the edge of the world. It is distinctively West African with a very strong Portuguese influence and this gives it a rhythm of its own which sets it apart from any experiences in East and Southern African.


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.
