Thanda Tented Camp

Explore South Africa

Thanda Game Reserve is an award winning private game reserve located in northern Zululand in South Africa's province of KwaZulu Natal. Thanda is home to abundant wildlife, including the Big 5. Thanda offers guests a choice between the opulence of the main lodge and the rugged refinement of the safari-style tented camp.

Thanda Tented Camp features 15 luxury tents each with their own private viewing decks and fabulous en-suite facilities. The honeymoon tent comes complete with a Jacuzzi deck. The non-electrified rooms within the tents are lit by lamp light giving it a romantic setting. If you wish to leave all the trappings of modern day life behind you and enjoy an authentic, affordable and unpretentious safari, then the tented camp is perfect for you.

General facilities at the tented camp include a reception area, curio shop, lounge area, an enhanced dining tent, swimming pool and boma. Spa treatments by Africology can be enjoyed in the privacy of your tent.

Game drives were excellent. We had the perfect driver and trekker and saw the Big 5! The tent was very comfortable and was in keeping with the safari experience. The food was average and was very limited in choice, although we had a very memorable safari experience.
