The Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in South Africa recently saw the opening of the the Tanda Tula Field Camp, an exclusive-use, tented, walking safari camp.

Tanda Tula Field Camp is a first of its kind in South Africa. The field 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. It consists of four custom-designed tents, with en-suite, open-air bush bathrooms and a communal mess tent.

The Tanda Tula Field Camp has evolved to meet the growing requirement in the market for privacy and exclusivity in one of the few remaining private wilderness areas forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park. It caters to between two and eight guests on an exclusive-use basis only.

Tanda Tula owner Don Scott explained: “Having personally experienced our own field camp recently, what struck me most was the sense of being immersed in another time and getting back to the kind of safari experienced by our forefathers many years ago. I found this was fashioned by everything, from the white cotton canvas tents to the comfort and elegance of the mess tent to being on foot for three days amongst the most extraordinary wildlife.”

The Tanda Tula Field Camp will operate from March 1 to Oct. 31 each year. Locations vary in accordance with the natural environment, vegetation, game movements and weather patterns.
