About the Thanda Private Game Reserve - Main Lodge

Winner of 'Africa's Leading Luxury Lodge' at the 2007 World Travel Awards, Thanda Private Game Reserve is situated 23 kilometres north of Hluhluwe on a 14,000 hectare 'Big Five' private game reserve, only an hour away from the Indian Ocean or KwaZulu-Natal's Elephant Coast. The five-star facilities include a Main Lodge, Tented Camp and Wellness Centre. The luxury bush villas at the Main Lodge each have their own private infinity pool, viewing deck, sala, boma, lounge, fireplace and full bathroom with both inside and outside showers. Thanda's award-winning Wellness Centre has a reflexology pool, outdoor sala treatment area, a steam room and a hydrotherapy bath, all with a unique Zulu feel. Vula Zulu, a traditional homestead adjacent to Thanda showcases traditional Zulu warriors performing age-old Impi dancing rites.

  • Step out onto your wooden deck. Take a dip in your plunge 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-her basins, egg-shaped bath, enclosed toilet as well as indoor and outdoor showers.



  • Game Viewing

    Thanda Private Game Reserve aims to restore nature's balance by reintroducing species endemic to the area, as well as the 'Big Five'. The rehabilitated land has encouraged the bird and wildlife to flourish, and has assisted in the re-establishment of the natural ecosystem. Game drives in the open game viewing vehicles and bush walks guided by knowledgeable and experienced game rangers and trackers afford guests a better understanding and appreciation of the wild heritage. The private game reserve is part of an ongoing game rehabilitation programme that will ensure the long-term sustainment of wildlife. It is the first privately owned game reserve in KwaZulu-Natal to introduce a breeding pack of wild dog, complementing the 'Big Five' experience.
