The Thanda Private Game Reserve, Hluhluwe in the Northern KwaZulu-Natal.

Thanda is near the Indian Ocean and guests who stay here will experience the heart of the untamed African bush in luxury and comfort.

Thanda Safari Game Reserve, which is a member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World', provides guests with the choice of staying at the luxurious main lodge or the rugged safari-style tented camp. 

Climate and the rehabilitated bushveld in this region made this reserve home to magnificent wildlife and over four hundred beautiful bird species. 

The word Thanda means Love in the Zulu language which portrays this Lodge correctly as it includes a magical combination of Zulu traditions, romance, & wildlife. 

Thanda packages at the main lodge and tented camp include the meals, and game activities and selected local beverages.

Thanda main lodge offers nine unique bush villas where guests experience the epitome of privacy and absolute luxury. Circular in structure and looking for a homestead on a hill, each of Thanda's Villas provides a scenic view of the surrounding game reserve.

Each spacious villa features its large lounge area as well as a master bedroom with an inter-leading fireplace. The villas at Thanda offer a full en-suite bathroom which is complete with an oval-shaped bathtub, indoor & outdoor showers. The private and romantic dining experience can be found in each villa as well.

Thanda Tented Camp offers an authentic African bush experience in accommodation which is reminiscent of a bygone era. The tented camp was constructed in a unique colonial safari-style. This type of rooms at Thanda in South Africa is suitable for guests who appreciated a genuine safari experience.

Thanda safari camp can accommodate children from 6-years of age to stay making for an unforgettable family safari getaway. This unique tented camp is about 16-minutes away from the main lodge in an open Land Rover.
