Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

The Timbavati Game Reserve is a private reserve on the edge of the Kruger Park and it is low on people high on animals. And that's the focus at Tanda Tula Safari Camp, one of a handful of upscale safari lodges inside this private reserve of 60,000 hectares.

While all eyes, ears and attention is on the wildlife experience, the game viewing, the walking safaris and the night drives, accommodation is anything but forgotten. It has just been paired down to give centre stage to the magnificent game reserve.

Tandu Tula Safari Camp has 12 en suite rooms constructed on concrete plinths dotted along the ephemeral Nhlaraluni River. With a thatch hangar, the inner sanctum is a tented suite with a large front deck and a sprawling en suite bathroom that steps out into the open air.

Trimmings are minimal, with no noisy air conditioners to disturb the peace but you do get a cosy bathroom, slippers, hot water bottles, towels and most of what you'd find in a decent city hotel. Except for the wonderful setting and the wilderness noises on the other side of the canvas.

The main area is standard safari lodge MO with a large open-sided lounge and dining area and a tradtional boma for starlit bonfire dinners al fresco. A soft lawn occupies the centre of the safari lodge with a small pool to one side and a hide marks the start of the bush.

The camp is unfenced making for some interesting night time encounters and the occasional buck or herd thereof strolling through camp. Game drives and wildlife activities are excellent at Tanda Tula with fantastic guides and trackers. Sightings are not over-crowded though the rangers do notify each other when they spot any of the \"biggies\" like elephants, rhino, lion, leopard, buffalos. A host of large and small plains game along with many birds and interesting plants add to the bushlore on offer by your game guide.
