Featuring four explorer tents, the Tanda Tula’s field camp philosophy and practices are similar to those of the early explorer camps of Africa. The atmosphere of the camp is that of a bygone era, and it is set up and taken down for each exclusive-use safari. The locations vary throughout the year depending on the seasons and game activities.
With a private guide, chef, camp host and dedicated camp staff, activities can be arranged on a whim, and game walks and drives may be as long or as short as you choose. Intimate experiences await.
Tanda Tula Field Camp is the ultimate exclusive experience in guided walking safaris where guests are led by iconic and highly trained trackers and guides, tracking general game and the Big 5 on foot, making this a thrilling and life-changing safari experience.
