In the heart of Big 5 Safari country in Southern Africa, lies Tangala - the most authentic safari camp in the internationally renowned Thornybush game reserve.

Tangala has been around since 1944, so we know what authenticity is.

In our safari camp we keep things simple, so that our guests can enjoy a true bush experience. It's a taste of great grandfather's game farm, back in the day: log fires, home cooked Boer meals, lamp-lit pathways and cosy beds.

Of course we’re star-graded, but the stars that really count are the ones overhead that light up the clearest of night skies.

Our safari game guides are trained to help you really see, smell and experience the nuances of the African bush. But just sitting on the deck at Tangala offers unparalleled game viewing, as our water hole lures the game towards your African Big 5 experience: it's not unusual to have cheetah at sunrise, buffalo at sunset and antelope, zebra, giraffe, baboons, warthog - an entire cast for your personal wildlife documentary - in between.

Of course the bird life in this pristine bush is prolific too.

Come with good companions, an exploring mind and your camera and create your own big 5 experience.
