10 Quotes from a Family Safari

06 August 2014

SOUTH AFRICA - Timbavati: My little darlings are still very small, but I have been warned the teenage years are the most challenging.  This was very evident when I was at Tanda Tula last week and met a UK family with 2 teenage boys, who clearly thought they were too cool to have parents.  After chatting to them I soon discovered they had found common ground on a safari at TANDA TULA FIELD CAMP.

Tanda Tula Field Camp is the only camp of this kind in South Africa!!  It is tailored toward the adventurous and perfect for families with teenagers. Here are 10 QUOTES from the family:

WHAT THE TEENAGE BOYS RAVED ABOUT:
1. That the camp had been set-up for us alone, had zero impact on the environment and it was removed when we left.
2. Guide was amazing and really engaging; kept asking us questions and keeping us busy. It was real learning and more engaging than other safaris we have done.
3. The walking was quite on edge and loads more exciting as we saw big game on foot - elephants, rhino, buffalo and lion.
4. Lying on a mat at night and learning about the stars.
5. Cool doing things with mum and she was better at some things than we were!

WHAT THE PARENTS VALUED:
1. Doing things together - the camp provided the perfect place to connect.
2. It was all ours, a totally private safari experience with no distractions.
3. Having to move the dinner table as the elephants came through the camp during main course.
4. Seeing my first shooting star while sitting on the loo!
5. The authentic simplicity, this is what a safari is all about!

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • ACCESS! With daily flights between Johannesburg, Cape Town (except Saturdays) and Hoedspruit, it is easier than ever to arrive in the Timbavati.
  • Exceptional guides and trackers.
  • Exhilarating big game walking safaris.
  • Exclusive use in an expansive reserve.
  • Explorer-style camping for the adventurous.

Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge

This founding lodge features a classic-contemporary style of simple elegance that embraces the lodge's splendid setting high up on a steep bank overlooking the Great Fish River. The colour scheme comprises a calm and natural palette of earthy tones, from khaki browns to charcoal greys. Pewter and glass add an effortless yet understated glamour to the furnishings; artefacts such as ostrich eggshells, hides and horns create subtle points of interest and relevance to the lodge's surrounds, whilst natural linens and plenty of texture preserve its simple but sophisticated atmosphere. Stone walls, thatch roofs and long wooden walkways bring natural materials into the interiors, blurring the distinction between inside and outside. The nine..
