We left Tanda Tula just 3 days ago (7/27/14) and are still basking in the glow. The people at "TT" are its best feature. To a person everyone is extraordinarily pleasant and friendly - not patronizing. Our Guide for the 4 days we stayed is a very nice, very knowledgable, and talented bushman. Civilized (that's his name) had us well in hand and took us surprisingly close to the spectrum of animals. He clearly has an appreciation and respect for his land and it shows in his knowledge and ability. Tracker Jack likewise spent the entire 4 days with us. He's a man of few words and many big smiles. I may be projecting here but to me Jack has that bushman 'magic' in that he knows where to find the beasts. These 2 guys are terrific!
Dale and the rest of the crew do a great job on the campus. Everything is well thought out, well cared for and easy. Right out of a Hemingway scene. It is comfortable and rustic, better than I could have hoped for. Wife and I are 45yrs and we had our daughter of 12yrs too. Fabulous trip for all. Check the web site for facilities stuff, I'll not bore you with it here.
Want a teaser? Breakfast in the bush is a 'picnic' not to be missed! All meals outstanding, Chef Ryan is to be congratulated!
