Tanda Tula
Kruger National Park

Consisting of both a safari and a field camp, Tanda Tula was a forerunner of authentic luxury safari. Opened in 1976, this was the first of its kind in South Africa. The privately-owned tented camp consists of 12 secluded tents, each with a breathtaking view over the riverbed. The East African styled tents feature rustic luxury, comfort and style. Each one features its own en-suite bathroom, Victorian bathtub, outdoor shower and a spacious deck overlooking the riverbed and African bush. Game drives are accompanied by hot water bottles in winter months and guests are met on return with liqueur-laced hot chocolate. Nothing is overlooked here and attention to detail is everywhere.

The field camp offers a truly glamorous camping experience. Campaign-style furniture, vibrant rugs and a mess tent evoke elegant safaris of yesteryear.  Enjoy thrilling guided walking safaris where guests are led by highly trained trackers and guides, tracking general game and the ‘big 5’ on foot. The surrounding Timbavati reserve hosts hordes of Africa’s game in one of the most beautiful settings on the continent. Low human impact is taken seriously here - all lodges in the area coordinate their game viewing activities according to strict controls which ensure the sustainability and sensitivity to the wildlife.

The ideal is to feel at home anywhere, everywhere.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
