Tanda Tula Safari Camp is positioned amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Nhlaralumi Riverbed, in the heart of Big Five country. The Camp gives true African feel. Making guests feel at home with friendly staff and the atmosphere.

The Tented Camp consists of just 12 secluded, Luxury Tents, each with a breath taking view over the riverbed. The East African styled Tents are Luxurious, comfortable and stylish. Each luxurious tent feature has en-suite facilities with Victorian bathtub, outdoor shower and a spacious deck overlooking the riverbed and African bush.
