About our home

Tandala, Kudu in Swahili, is located in secluded hills in the Northern district of Amboseli at an altitude of 5070ft.
Tandala overlooks a waterhole and offer sweeping views across plains to the Pelewa Hills.

The house is an ideal haven for those guests who desire exclusive privacy and peace.

Everything has been taken care of to ensure you have a comfortable stay.
The house comes with a housekeeper, houseboy, garden/maintenance/pool attendant, all of whom will make your stay as comfortable as possible.
NB: You will need to bring your own food and drinks.

For the short time we are here on this earth we feel it is of prime importance to try and protect this small piece of Africa. We frequently patrol the area for snares and do our utmost to protect the game. Our neighbours feel the same so we have left fences open where possible to allow the game to roam freely between our properties.
You may see Buffalo, Lesser Kudu, Impala, Eland, Waterbuck, Bushbuck, Duiker, Dik-Dik, Warthog, Hyena, Ostrich, Giraffe and Leopard in the area. Lion have been heard at night and we have spotted Wild Dogs, Aardvark and the occasional Wildebeest and Zebra.
The bird life in the area is superb.

“All I wanted to do now was get back to Africa. We had not left it yet - but
when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.”
Ernest Hemmingway

A visit to Amboseli Park, a one and a half hour drive from Tandala through the bush to Meshanani Gate (in the dry season). A 4 x 4 vehicle is necessary for this route or via Namanga which is a two hour drive. Amboseli is best known for its elephant population and unrivalled views of Mount Kilimanjaro - the tallest free standing mountain in the world.
