Starting your morning right

Shara Burger | From The Kitchen

Recently Chef Ryan decided it was time to reinvent our morning safari coffee break crunchies.  

 Well, to say he outdid himself would be an understatement. The latest edition to these firm favourites definitely takes the taste up a couple of notches. Dipped in chocolate, then dipped in coffee, enjoyed while having a break in the middle of a dawn game drive, makes the whole experience even more delicious than it was before. 

 But, to be honest, these yummy oat biscuits can be appreciated anywhere and they are so easy to make. Enjoy! 


Tanda Tula Crunchies 


  • 180 g butter 
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup 
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb of soda 
  • 1 cup cake flour 
  • 2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut 
  • 125 g white sugar 
  • 500 g dark chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 175°C. 
  • Grease a baking tray (20cm x 20cm) and set aside. 
  • Mix all the dry ingredients (except the bicarb and chocolate) together in a large mixing bowl. 
  • Melt the butter and syrup together in a small saucepan. 
  • Once the butter comes to the boil, remove the pot from the heat and whisk in the bicarb. 
  • Add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix well. 
  • Press the crunchie mixture into the baking tray.  Use a spatula to smooth the top. 
  • Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until the crunchies are golden brown. 
  • Once the crunchies are done, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool. 
  • Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. 
  • Once the crunchies have cooled, transfer them onto a cutting board. 
  • Cut the crunchies (using a serrated knife) into small rectangles and then dip the bottoms into the dark chocolate. 
  • Place the dipped crunchies on a tray line with greaseproof paper and place in a cool area so the chocolate can set. 
  • Once the chocolate has set, store in an airtight container.

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.

The Terms and Conditions are subject to change without notice.
