Thanda Private Game Reserve

Thanda, meaning ‘love’ in Zulu, is an expression of the magical union of powerful Zulu culture, wildlife, romantic decadence and exclusivity. Reawaken romance in one of the luxury bush villas, or embrace nature at the colonial safari-style tented camp. Encounter the abundance of African game including lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo and leopard found at Thanda. Let your tension be smoothed away at one of South Africa’s most exquisite African bush spas, or feel the rush of adrenalin diving with sharks at the nearby warm Indian Ocean waters. Be transfixed in awe as you witness a hundred-year-old ritual performed by Zulu warriors, offering you a glimpse of a powerful nation that still retains its deep traditions.

Thanda Private Game Lodge

The nine luxury bush villas at the main lodge offer a level of opulence that is hard to surpass, each with private heated splash pools and private bomas, ideal for intimate open-air dinners. The outdoor salsa are impossible to resist for an afternoon siesta on feather-filled cushions amid extraordinary views of the surrounding unfenced bush. The public areas at the main include a library, business centre, a finely stocked wine cellar and several dining venues where deliciously mouth-watering meals are served. The non-electrified tented camp is built in colonial safari style, suited for guests in search of an authentic yet luxurious bush experience. The four beautifully furnished tents have four-poster beds, en-suite canvass bathrooms and magnificent views of the game reserve. Public facilities include an intimate dining tent and boma, a very stylish outdoor lounge and a plunge pool for cool relief on hot summer days.
