Tanda Tula Field Camp
Tanda Tula Field Camp is the ultimate ‘glamping’ safari. Exclusively for private use, this non-permanent eco camp, located in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park, is the ultimate walking safari experience in South Africa.

Tanda Tula Field Camp

Tanda Tula Field Camp is set within a private concession in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, one of the few remaining private wilderness areas forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park. The camp has evolved to meet the growing requirement in the market for privacy and exclusivity for up to eight guests and focuses on guided-walking safaris.

The non-permanent Tanda Tula Field Camp is a unique safari experience unlike any other. The camp consists of four custom-designed tents, with en-suite open air bush bathrooms and a communal tent. Tanda Tula Field Camp draws on the traditions of the classic East African safari with detailed campaign-style furniture and soft furnishings from the Cape, North Africa, and Zanzibar.

Operational from March through to October, the camp is set up and taken down for each safari, making it the ultimate eco-friendly camp, designed for minimum energy consumption and ground impact. Guests are hosted by some of the industry's leading iconic guides who accompany them on an extraordinary journey of exploration and adventure

'Treading softly on the surface of the earth' is a foundation principle of everything that Tanda Tula stands for, and a principle that is echoed throughout each element of the field camp experience.
