Thanda Safari Private Game Reserve is in the Northern Zululand near the Indian Ocean and guests who stay here will experience the heart of the untamed African bush in luxury and comfort. South Africa’s best 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. The lodge is one of South Africa's top safari destinations in the country.

The Thanda Reserve, which is a member of 'The Leading Hotels of the World', provides guests with the choice of staying at the luxurious Thanda main lodge or the rugged safari-style Thanda Tented camp. The safari accommodation packages at Thanda's main lodge and tented camp include the meals, and game activities and selected local beverages.

Thanda Main Lodge

The beautiful 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.

Tented Camp

The 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.

The 14 tents provide beautiful viewing decks and en-suite canvas bathrooms. The public facilities are the attractive reception area, a curio shop, a relaxing lounge area, an enhanced dining tent, a 10x5 meter rim-flow swimming pool and a boma. Soothing spa treatments by Africology are available in the privacy of the tents.

The 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.
