Tanda Tula was outstanding. The staff at Tanda Tula were some of the nicest people we've met on our travels. The food was 5 star, everything we ate tasted great. The game viewing was very good. The camp had wildlife coming in and out all day long. The tents were nice and very comfortable. At night, the beds were heated....

We had a great experience at Tanda Tula (meaning love of the quiet). The tents were amazing. Large and comfortably appointed, extremely large bathrooms with amazing outdoor showers, porch, and a really comfy bed. I loved laying in bed at night, looking out at the trees. I really felt like I was in the wild, hearing the monkeys, hyenas, impalas...

The grounds are very well kept and we loved walking from our "tent" to the lobby and seeing animals walking around minding their business. The food is AMAZING. Chef Ryan is a...

Our 3 night stay at Tanda Tula was excellent from start to finish. Just enough attention to make you feel at home but not so much as to be overwhelming. We have been to a lot of safari lodges (I mean a LOT) and Tanda Tula remains a firm favourite. Accommodation is fabulous and of course the food and service...

Our stay at Thanda Tula was absolutley amazing in every way.

We had two nights at Tanda Tula at the end of a wonderful stay in South Africa. Tanda Tula is the most magical place I have ever stayed in thanks to its wonderful staff, glorious setting and stunning accommodation. Our game sightings were PHENOMENAL.
