Thula Thula Tented Camp Location Map

Thula Thula Game Reserve is less than 2 hours drive from Durban in a malaria free area. Historically part of the private hunting grounds of legendary Zulu King Shaka, founder of the Zulu empire, Thula Thula is today an exclusive private sanctuary for Africa's famous wildlife.

Thula Thula's 4,500 hectares is home to a diverse African wildlife population, including elephant, rhino, leopard, giraffe, zebra, nyala, hyenas, crocodile, kudu, wildebeest and a spectacular variety of other indigenous species, great and small. Birdlife is prolific with over 350 species. Game drives are conducted in open Land Rovers by professional rangers, and guided walks are available on request.

Thula Thula Luxury Tented Camp is situated on the banks of the Ensleni River.  Nestled in the bushveld, the tented camp is a great opportunity to rediscover nature in an exclusive and private environment. The camp has 2 bars - one is in the thatched lapa and the other is in a boma on the deck overlooking the river.  Beers, wines, cocktails and spirits are available and will be charged to the room account for settlement on departure.

The pool is situated in front of the bar area surrounded by lawns and bushveld.  Sun-loungers and hammocks are available around the pool area.


Exclusivity is assured with 6 luxury tents and 2 family tents, all with private viewing decks with views of the bush and river, mosquito nets, fans and a luxurious en-suite bathroom with Victorian bath and outside shower. 

The 2 family tents offer space, luxury and comfort for parents and children and the generous en-suite bathroom also has Victorian bath and open inside shower.
