Thanda Private Game Reserve is situated approximately 300 km north of Durban, and invites you to experience ultimate luxury and world-class service. A full suite of animal species, including the Big 5, which roamed the area in the past have been reintroduced to the 14,000 hectare reserve..
An early morning or late afternoon safari is the best time to look for the Big Five. Led by experts of the African bush, you’ll see an incredible range of animals, including cheetahs, hyaenas, giraffes, warthogs and abundant bird and plant life.
A guided walk through the bush is a completely thrilling experience of the wilderness and all its inhabitants. Thanda’s guides and trackers will share their extensive knowledge and animal tracking ability with you, as well as ancient Zulu stories of the wild.
Thanda Tented Camp offers an authentic safari adventure. Set in the middle of the bush, your safari experience is enhanced by flickering firelight and lanterns guiding your way at night. This is bush living as nature intended - open and inviting with unparalleled closeness to the bush, its sights, smells and sounds.
The main area includes a large rim-flow pool, atmospheric Hemingway-style lounge and dining area featuring authentic African artworks. Guests can dine on an exquisite variation of Western and traditional Zulu cuisine, and can choose to have their meals in the dining tent or around the boma fire.
The wellness centre offers a variety of therapies and beauty treatments to ease the effects of life's daily stresses on your body and mind. Qualified health and skin care therapists will ensure that your soothing full body aromatherapy massage or healing reflexology, to name just a few, will aid you to unwind and relax.
Situated on the slope of a hill, and with spectacular views of the reserve, each of the 14 luxury tents at Thanda Safari Tented Camp has a viewing deck and a spacious bathroom with a shower.
In addition, the romantic Jabula Tent is a beautifully spacious very private tent and is ideal for honeymooners and families. The tent features a kingsize bed and separate lounge, an en-suite bathroom, outdoor shower, splash pool and spectacular views of the reserve.
Special offers for longer stays or when booked as part of a longer itinerary may apply - details on request.
