If you are looking for a real adventure in the savannah, then tangala safari camp is what you need. For me it was a fantastic 3 day adventure: 2 safaris a day, experiencing the savannah from upclose and all the big five!! The camp combines luxury with no electricity. My suggestion is to spend 2 to 4 nights there.

We expected to be completely off the grid for Christmas but to our surprise they had the best wifi we encountered throughout our 14 day trip! Tangala is a wonderful small scale camp with huts and tents each for 2 people. The huts were equipped with showers and the usual amenities. Mosquito nets and fans for night time, it was...

We stayed here for three nights during the hot rainy season. Expected problems with mosquitoes but neither were bitten during our 14 day safari. Accommodations and food were excellent. Our guide Steve was superb! His ability to find and identify wildlife and birds was astonishing. We saw 7 leopards during our drives including a young one in a tree overhead...

We really enjoyed the 3 nights and 4 days we spent at Tangala. Our accommodations were clean and comfortable. Every night when we returned from a game drive our bed was turned down and the mosquito netting draped around the bed. We didn't see mosquitos but the netting kept a few harmless bugs such as moths out of our sleeping...

We had a great luck out on Safari from Tangala and got to see the big 5 plus many more. Our favorites were the leopards. Also saw a large heard of buffaloes come to cool off in the watering hole.
