Nutella doughnuts, for real!

Shara Burger | From The Kitchen

Let’s be honest…anything filled with Nutella just tastes better, right? Especially a doughnut! When Chef Ryan decided to create these delicious morsels, we swear it was like a gift from the gods.

There really is not much to say about these mouth-watering treats, except you absolutely have to make them at home if you can’t indulge in them at Tanda Tula Safari Camp. Yes, admittedly, it takes a bit of time to make, but trust us, you will be as thrilled as we were at their invention.

Nutella Doughnuts


  • 1 pkt (10g) Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 cup Warm Water
  • 2 tablespoon White Sugar
  • 125g Butter, Melted
  • 2 Eggs
  • 600g White Bread Flour
  • 5ml Baking Powder
  • 5ml Salt
  • Desiccated coconut for rolling
  • 1 jar Nutella Spread


  1. In a large bowl, mix the yeast, sugar and warm water together.
  2. Wrap the bowl with cling film and place in a warm area to allow the yeast to ferment. This will take about 20 minutes.
  3. Once the yeast mixture has turned to a froth, add the flour, baking powder, salt, egg and butter to the bowl.
  4. Mix until a soft dough is formed. If the dough is too sticky, add some more flour and if the dough is too stiff, add a little more warm water.
  5. Lightly knead the dough until it is smooth and elastic.
  6. Place the dough back in the mixing bowl and cover again with cling film.
  7. Allow the dough to rise in a warm area until it is double its size. This will take about 30 minutes.
  8. Gently knock down the dough using your fingertips.
  9. Sprinkle flour on a work surface and roll out the dough until it is about 1cm thick.
  10. Cut out discs with a small scone cutter. Place the discs on a tray.
  11. Place the tray in a warm area to size. It only needs to rise an additional half its size
  12. Heat a heavy based saucepan filled with sunflower oil to 160ᵒC.
  13. Deep fry the doughnuts until they are golden brown on all sides.
  14. Once the doughnuts have cooked through, remove them from the oven and drain them on paper towel.
  15. Once drained, roll the doughnuts in the desiccated coconut whilst they are still warm. Coat the doughnuts completely.
  16. Place the Nutella into a piping bag fitted with a small round nozzle.
  17. Stick the nozzle into the middle of the doughnut and fill with the Nutella.

Booking Terms & Conditions

Rates are quoted in South African Rand (ZAR) and include VAT. Rates are reviewed quarterly and are subject to change.


Bookings can be held as provisional for up to 14 days, after which the booking is required to release or confirm. A 20% refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking.


Once confirmed with a 20% deposit, the booking is held on a status of ‘confirmed with refundable deposit’ until any of the following becomes true:

  • The booking is cancelled in writing by the agent.
  • Another request is received with overlapping dates. At such a time, the 20% refundable deposit shall be required to be converted
  • into a 20% non-refundable commitment fee. At this stage, the booking status changes to ‘confirmed with commitment.’ • In such an event, Tanda Tula will contact the client and give them the option to either confirm with the non-refundable
  • commitment fee or reschedule their dates, or, failing that, to release the booking.
  • At 60 days prior to arrival, when the full payment is due, the booking status changes to ‘confirmed with full-payment.’

Final payment is due 60 days prior to arrival. Any outstanding balance on the total reservation value shall be required to be settled at 60 days prior to arrival.

All refundable deposits, commitment fees and full payments are held in a separate call account and do not become part of the operational cash flow until the guest has stayed.

The amount stated on the invoice is what must be received by Tanda Tula nett of bank charges.


Cancellations must be received and acknowledged by Tanda Tula in writing.

‘Confirmed with refundable deposit’: bookings carry no cancellation fees up to 61 days prior to arrival.

‘Confirmed with commitment’ or ‘Confirmed with full-payment’: in the event of any reservation being cancelled after Tanda Tula has issued a confirmation, for any reason other than a WHO-recognised pandemic that impacts the booking, the following cancellation fees will apply:

  • ‘Confirmed with commitment’: if cancelled more than 60 days prior to arrival, the cancellation fee shall be equal to the 20% non- refundable commitment fee.
  • ‘Confirmed with full-payment’: if cancelled between 60 days prior to arrival, the full reservation value is forfeited.

All cancelled bookings that qualify for a refund, will be refunded less a handling fee valued at 5% of the refund amount.


Tanda Tula will allow postponement of a booking for up to 12 months, if travel is cancelled with a commitment fee or 60 days or less prior to arrival due to a WHO-recognised pandemic directly impacting the guests’ ability to travel (e.g. lockdown, no flights, guest not allowed to board a flight, guest falls ill due to a pandemic and unable to travel).

In the event of a WHO-recognised pandemic directly impacting the ability of Tanda Tula to meet its obligations with respect to the booking, all monies received, including the commitment fee, will be fully refunded (e.g. lockdown in RSA, government restrictions on trade).

Any refund is given at the discretion of Tanda Tula management and will be charge a handling fee valued at 5% of the refund amount.

All travellers are advised to take out fully comprehensive travel insurance with ‘cancellation for no reason’. This insurance must be able to fully cover cancellation of travel fewer than 60 days prior to arrival.
