Step out onto your wooden deck. Take a dip in your heated infinity pool. Enjoy dinner served in your own private boma. Or admire the African sunset from the circular daybed atop your thatched outdoor sala.

Thanda Safari Lodge is known for its 9 beautiful bush suites – each self-contained for absolute privacy. Shaped like a traditional Zulu homestead, the 220m² suites have panoramic views of the surrounding game reserve.

Each suite is a tribute to abundance, Africa-style - with a spacious lounge and majestic master bedroom and double-sided fireplace. The bathroom has a vanity, his-and-hers basins, egg-shaped bath, enclosed toilet as well as indoor and outdoor showers.

Thanda Safari Lodge’s public areas are colourful and drenched in light, with touches of beading, welcoming leather and authentic wood. They include an inviting library overlooking a waterhole that is favoured by elephant and other game, a private business centre, a cigar bar and an impressively stocked wine cellar.

Thanda Tented Camp King

Book

Within Thanda Tented Camp you will encounter minimal lighting and no artifice, with beautiful nature and jaw-dropping scenery enhanced by flickering firelight from the boma and warm paraffin lanterns to guide your feet along the walkway.

Thanda Tented Camp offers a relaxed and authentic safari experience. It comprises 14 spacious tents, each with a private sun deck and en-suite canvas bathroom. In addition the 15th tent, the Jabula Tent, is particularly suited to bridal couples, honeymooners, families and those seeking extra beautiful accommodation for special occasions.

To add to the genuine bush atmosphere, the camp is non-electrified. However, it does have limited solar and battery power with a back-up generator to power the tents for a few hours each day for guests to charge cameras and phones. As a deterrent to wild animals, there is a partial electrified fence along the perimeter of Thanda Tented Camp.

The camp’s shared areas include a reception area, a curio shop, a recently refurbished Hemingway-style lounge area, a dining area featuring authentic African curios, a large rim-flow pool surrounded by loungers and umbrellas, a new waterhole to entice large and small game, and a new boma – all decorated in rustic natural shades and complemented by the rich, warm hues of the African sunset.

Thanda Tented Camp does not admit children under 12 years old.

Jabula Tent

Book

Within Thanda Tented Camp lies Thanda’s Jabula Tent. Meaning 'happiness' in isiZulu, it is romantic and private, yet beautifully spacious. Decorated in sophisticated safari chic, it is ideal for bridal couples, honeymooners, special occasion travellers as well as families wanting to share with each other under one canvas roof.

The Jabula Tent has a king-sized bed and separate lounge, en-suite canvas bathroom with outdoor shower, splash pool and spectacular views of the 14 000ha game reserve. While it nestles off to the side of Thanda Tented Camp, it is both near to and slightly remote from the shared areas, to enable true solitude.

The Camp is characterised by minimal artificial lighting and limited electric power, relying instead on firelight from the boma, paraffin lanterns and a back-up generator.

As a deterrent to wild animals, there is a partial electrified fence along the perimeter of Thanda Tented Camp.

The camp’s shared areas include a reception area, a curio shop, a recently refurbished lounge area, a dining area featuring authentic African curios, a large rim-flow pool surrounded by loungers and umbrellas, and a new boma – all decorated in natural shades and complemented by the rich, warm hues of the African sunset.
