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.
