The Field Camp Experience

Shara Burger | Our Camps

Tanda Tula Field Camp is the raw edge of an African safari. Here, you can allow yourself to softly succumb to the beauty of a wild environment, but without ever letting down your guard completely, for nature can be inhospitable when you least expect it.

Field Camp is more of an experience than a place, it gives you the opportunity to allow nature to be your guide to all the beauty that it has to offer, with absolutely no distractions. A unique encounter that allows you to connect to the environment by completely exposing your emotional and physical self to her elements.

Here you can permit nature to take hold of you and direct you to a place where all your senses are heightened: A place where the quiet of the African bush can be resounding. A place where trepidation and serenity live side by side. A place that can restore and heal you. A place that is in fact an experience.

While following the animal paths of the Greater Kruger Region on foot your mind will calm and you will lapse into a mediative state, absorbing the sounds and smells around you. Walking allows you to truly touch the earth gently, be humbled by the surrounding beauty, and be respectful of her creatures, large and small. With nature by your side, you will take on her stories and learn from her deep knowledge, all the while gifting you with time to reflect and reconnect with yourself.

Being forced from your daily comfort zone means that the Field Camp experience is one that assaults all your senses: physically it is challenging, emotionally it pushes you from contentment to apprehension, joy to fear, frustration to gratitude, all the while expanding your understanding as you learn about the incredible natural surroundings, the trees, plants, insects, and animals.

These wild spaces give you a true sense of freedom and the joy it offers, this hyper-sensory experience will confront your perceptions and leave you wondering how you lived fully before this taste of wildness.

So, be brave. Let go of your fears and challenge yourself. Come and feel the rhythm of real Africa. Explore this journey of simplicity. Field Camp will remind you how to be present and conscious, all the while awakening your emotional and physical awareness and giving you space for self-discovery.
