Even if you've traveled the world, you're bound to be surprised by Thanda Private Game Reserve - a truly unique land where humans and nature harmoniously co-exist.

More than a luxury lodge, more than a dream safari destination, more than an 
African escape… Thanda Private Game Reserve offers an authentically South
 African wildlife experience matched with sincere commitment to the Zulu
culture and passionate conservation of the environment.

Meaning ‘love’ in isiZulu, Thanda is a multiple winner of World’s Leading Luxury Lodge at the World Travel Awards and it's known for meaningful safari experiences and exclusive close-up encounters with Africa’s magnificent Big Five.

Thanda Private Game Reserve is the proud location of three very different 
properties, each with its own style, atmosphere and appeal.

Thanda Safari 
Lodge, Thanda's flagship product, is known for its 9 bush suites - each, the
 height of luxurious exclusivity and African abundance.

Villa iZulu, ideal for celebrities and those with a special taste for privacy, is a bush
 homestead beyond any traditional understanding of extravagance and service.


And Thanda Tented Camp, with its 14 grand tents and a grande deluxe tent, 
offers a truly relaxed and authentic safari experience.
