Thanda Safari Lodge

The Thanda Game Reserve lies in the North-Western part of KwaZulu-Natal and is a fantastic destination for a safari when visiting the province. With just two lodges on the land, you will be assured of a wonderfully private game viewing experience, combined with a superb lodge, boasting some of the largest suites you will find on safari anywhere in Africa. Staff at Thanda Safari Lodge really go the extra mile to ensure that your stay is extra special, be it organising private dinners in the lodge to your ranger searching for that one animal that for you is a "must see". A real favourite of ours and we are sure it will be one of yours too.




  • Excellent game viewing
  • Enormous suites
  • Fantastic views from your private plunge pool

Our Thoughts

The thing that really strikes you about a stay at Thanda Safari Lodge is space. The large reserve only has Thanda's 2 lodges on it so you don't see any other vehicles and the suites are enormous, with private plunge pools, private bomas and day beds. A perfect spot for guests looking for their own private palace in the bush.

The quality of Thanda as a lodge is complimented by the food, with a superb range of cuisine offered throughout the day. Most meals are served in the lodge, however, all rooms boast their own private outdoor dining areas with fire pits, so private dining is often requested by guests to enjoy this. 

On walking into the rooms here, it can be hard to believe all the space is just for you! With a huge bedroom and bathroom areas, a large raised decking area with private plunge pool and day bed, as well as a private outdoor dining area with fire pit, you would be forgiven for spending plenty of time in your suite. There are just 9 suites in total so a fantastic feeling of privacy prevails in the main lodge as well.

A superb option for families - can be comfortably accommodated in one suite.
