Take-in spectacular and colourful birdlife along with a plethora of mammal species, including warthog, cheetah, hyena and, on occasion, lucky guests can enjoy sightings of rare wild dog. However, Thanda's star attractions are the legendary Big 5; consisting of lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, this band of big game should be on everyone's list. If you're looking for something a little different then perhaps you should go in search of the lesser known Little 5.

While twice daily game drives ensure guests make the most of Thanda's big game bush walks allow you to discover smaller mammals and often overlooked aspects of the bush. Setting out on foot is also an excellent way to feel at one with nature.
