Once again tanda Tula was amazing. Our guide Luke was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a personal interest in everything to do with the bush from the smallest bird to the largest mammals, photography etc etc. The lodge remains unchanged and is great but a proper entry for to the tent would be a welcome addition. Unfortunately the...

The people, the food, the views, the animals, the tents, the service--I mean the list of great things is endless. This was one of the most memorable experiences of my lifetime. The tents were so spacious, clean, yet raw and felt like you were part of the jungle. The staff, and the service is just beyond amazing. Everyone is so...

This was our first safari - and the experience was everything we hoped it would be. Our guides - Ginger and Given - made sure that we got the maximum experience from the game drives. Like all the staff at Tanda Tula they were dedicated professionals and as a result we were given an unforgettable experience. The tented accommodation was...

We could not have asked for better accommodations at a tented lodge and to say we were spoiled would be an understatement. We also saw all the Big 5 on our 4-day stay. My husband and I still talk about this vacation - 6 months later - and agree it was the BEST vacation we have ever had! We didn't...

Our family of 6 (2 adults and 4 teens) spent 3 days at Tanda Tula and absolutely loved it! From the picturesque location to the delicious food to the impeccable service it was a very memorable stay. The safari drives (we did 5) were incredible - each time we went out we saw something different - from baby elephants playing...

Okay, so we'd never been on a safari before. Our friends arranged the trip for us. Eyes on Africa, a Chicago based travel agent, booked our 3 plus days at Tanda Tula for us. This was the conclusion of our 2 week trip to South Africa. Everything about our time at Tanda Tula was other worldly, magical. The exceptionally friendly...

Tanda Tula was our last and best safari experience on our recent trip. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating Our guide and tracker Luke and Jack were exceptional. Food was excellent. Well prepared and plentiful. The outside shower was unique and even fun in the rain.

From the very start Tanda Tula went out of its way to make us feel welcome. Each 'tent' (feels wrong to call something that luxurious a tent somehow) is so private with an amazing terrace that overlooks this dry river bed. From our terrace we saw Rhino's, Elephants and Giraffe. The room is very comfortable but manages to keep that...

This was the first time my friends and I had visited South Africa and a first safari for several of us. We did our own research and booking and decided on Tanda Tula for several reasons. First, the food reviews were very good, we wouldn't have to "rough it" too much but could still get the safari experience, it was...
