This was our first time on safari and it truly was once in a lifetime experience. From the moment you are Ickes p at the airport you are surrounded by knowledgable and passionate people. From your seasoned guide (Scotch) to a excellent tracker (Patrick) they found the "needles in the haystack" and we did to leave disappointed.
The acclamations in the luxury tents were amazing. Listening to elephants and hyenas in front of your door helped me realize that we were in the zoo not the animals.
Meals were excellent with a wake up call with French pressed coffee at the entrance to your tent. And then whisked off to see the beautiful animals in the bush. Breakfast waits in the bush then back to the large to relax and enjoy until lunch. A beautiful main lodge was full of books and comfortable furniture and always a smiling Harry at the bar to congregate at to share the animal stories of the morning.
After lunch back to relaxing and then tea and cakes at followed by a evening ride and enjoy drinks and watching the sun set.
Back tithe lodge you are greeted by staff and roaoring fires in the main loads and then the most incentive and exquisite dinners.
You felt Tanda Thula was not only a safari lodge. The owners passionate not only about the bush and protecting it but their staff. This was a family.
We loved our stay and made a lifetime dream a reality better than imagined.
