About Tangala Safari Camp

Situated within the Thornybush Big 5 Game Reserve, Tangala Safari Camp overlooks a wide open plain, busy waterhole and has sweeping views of the majestic Drakensberg mountain range. From here guests enjoy the sights and sounds that the African Bush has to offer and with our friendly staff and knowledgeable guides to interpret these sights and sounds, guests are assured of a memorable experience

Accommodation comprises 4 chalets and 6 luxury tents, complete with covered patios, twin beds under mosquito nets and en-suite bathrooms which include his and her basins, shower and toilet.

Tangala retains its authenticity and closeness to nature and runs “off the grid”, boasting solar power and natural gas to fuel the camp. The camp itself is rustic and authentic with an informal and relaxed atmosphere, perfect to unwind and to get back in touch with nature.

Public areas include an open plan lounge and dining room, open air deck, swimming pool and viewing lounge – all overlooking the waterhole which is located in front of the camp where the game viewing within the confines of the lodge is prolific.

Brunch, high tea and dinner are served and the variety and offering are both tasty and substantial. The camp offers early morning and evening safaris and our guides and expert trackers are there to show you nature at its best, in their natural environment and without interference.

The reserve borders the Greater Kruger National Park and the game viewing and birdlife are abundant with regular big game sightings. Tangala is a mere 5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg. Alternately guests can fly to the nearby Hoedspruit Airport which is a short 30 minutes’ drive from the camp. There are flights directly to Hoedspruit Airport from both Johannesburg and Cape Town, and guests are transferred to the lodge from the airport making use of the local transfer companies in Hoedspruit.

At Tangala Safari Camp we have created the feel of an Africa long forgotten, and our team strives to give all guests the ultimate African bush experience. The biodiversity of the reserve attracts a wide variety of wildlife including the ‘Big 5’. Our staff includes well-trained and experienced rangers who will share with you one of Africa’s most splendid ecosystems.

Tangala has striking views of the Drakensberg Mountains and is closed to the Orpen Gate of the world famous Kruger National Park.
