Hotel Overview

Not yet reviewed
More than a luxury lodge, more than a dream safari destination, more than an African escape. Thanda Private Game Reserve offers an authentically South African wildlife experience matched with sincere commitment to the Zulu culture and passionate conservation of the environment. Meaning LOVE in isiZulu, Thanda is known for meaningful safari experiences and close-up encounters with Africas magnificent Big 5. It is situated in northern Zululand and set on a 14000ha nature reserve. It is the proud location of 3 very different properties, each with its own style, atmosphere and appeal. Thanda Safari Lodge, Thandas flagship product, is known for its 9 bush suites, each the height of luxurious exclusivity and African abundance. Villa iZulu, ideal for celebrities and those with a special taste for privacy, is a bush homestead beyond any traditional understanding of extravagance and service. And Thanda Tented Camp, with its 14 grand tents and 1 grande deluxe tent, offers an authentic safari experience. An early morning or late afternoon safari is the best way to absorb the sights, smells and sounds of Africa. Guests encounter the Big 5 (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo): the animals that inspire a long-lasting connection with the continent. Apart from the 2 daily game drives, which are included in the rate, Thanda offers further activities that will make a stay truly unique, ranging from excursions into the local communities or time spent with the resident Wildlife Conservation Team to beach picnics on 9Mile Beach in close proximity to the Reserve. Thanda offers an authentic 5-star safari experience. But it is more than a destination; the commercial aspects of everything that Thanda does are underpinned by a genuine, sincere and far- reaching commitment to the local Zulu communities. As such, Thanda strives to play an important role in the social upliftment of the region, via employment and the preservation of the Zulu culture, future and people.
