The award-winning Thanda Private Game Reserve is located in northern Zululand near South Africa’s Elephant Coast. Famous for being a malaria-free area, the game reserve is home to the Big Five and other varieties of African game. Meaning ‘love’ in Zulu, the lodge takes the Zulu tradition and culture to heart, reflecting it in its decor, cuisine and conservation.
Step into your private suite and enjoy your own rim-flow pool, game viewing deck and private open-air boma. Each of the nine bush suites has a daybed outside, a fireplace and an indoor or outdoor shower.
If you’re a wine lover, you are welcome at Thanda Private Game Reserve as their wine cellar is well-stocked with South African wines. After your early morning or night game drive, you can relax and indulge at the wellness center. For extra activities, the main lodge also has a library and a swimming pool.
