How we are making an Impact

Being a family-owned business, we take immense pride in our well-established reputation for instigating a positive transformation in the realms of tourism and conservation. Our commitment to enhancing wildlife, safeguarding land, and fostering our community has been unwavering throughout our journey. This philosophy governs not only our business operations but also our interactions with people and is ingrained in our core values. 

It’s how we conduct business. It’s how we treat people. It’s our ethos.

The Sustainability Levy we’ve introduced ensures that every guest who comes to Tanda Tula contributes directly. This contribution fosters transparency and provides backing for conservation and community projects within the Greater Kruger Region. Every cent of this levy is channelled into local undertakings, yielding a lasting impact on the ecosystem’s health and the region’s prosperity.


Education isn’t a privilege; it’s a fundamental human right. This principle forms the core of the Tanda Tula Foundation, as it stands as the pivotal factor in unlocking brighter prospects for our staff, their children, and the entire community. 

All our guests play a crucial role in endorsing this foundation, thereby enabling the provision of educational opportunities and scholarships to talented young individuals. Through these contributions, our learners can discover new skills, interests, and perspectives that will help shape their futures and give them the confidence to pursue their dreams.  


A significant portion of Timbavati Private Nature Reserve’s income, where we are based, is generated through conservation fees. These funds are essential to maintaining security measures, safeguarding wildlife, and enabling ecological supervision. Additionally, we are committed to supporting different conservation endeavours in the Greater Kruger region.  

When you embark on a safari to the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, you play an active role in supporting a range of fascinating and vital research initiatives. These varied projects all share a unified goal: preserving and nurturing the distinctive flora and fauna, as well as the wildlife, of the area. 


Tanda Tula holds a place among a collection of lodges dedicated to nurturing a hyper-local supply chain and SME development program. This connection bridges the divide between local enterprises and the safari industry in our region, nurturing sustainability, fostering prospects, and effecting transformative changes in livelihoods.
