Thanda Safari Lodge

Discover Thanda Safari Lodge

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. Meaning 'love' in Zulu, Thanda offers honeymooners private meals, a romantic bush dinner under the stars or a candle-lit bath strewn with rose petals.

The 5 star Thanda Main Lodge is comprised of 9 luxury bush villas with private infinity edge swimming pool, sala, boma and viewing deck. Villas also have a lounge, en suite bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers and a fireplace. Meals can be served to guests at their villa for added privacy. General areas include a library, business centre, wine cellar and cigar bar, as well as a choice of dining venues.
