Wow, wow and wow
As seasoned travellers, with a particular addiction for top lodges, we could not find fault with our fantastic two night stay at Thanda Tented Camp. The tents were exquisite, well spaced apart and this is one of the few occassions that we have never heard voices from other tents. The food is excellent, the setting magical and the staff are what sets it apart from it's competitors. Small, intimate and guides and trackers who are exceptional and take their guets on a safari to remember. Highly highly recommended.
Thanda August 2020
Took advantage of the amazing specials post lockdown COVID 19. Received royal treatment from start to finish. Food was amazing. Knowledge and sights on Safari were once in a life time. The time simply flew bye and before we knew we had to leave our kingdom. Thanks for everything!!!
Thanda what an absolutely remarkable Private game reserve destination
Thanda Lodge has been on our to do list for a number of years we never really got around to it until this year. The lodge is a comfortable 3 hour drive from Durban. Thanda safari lodge itself is breathtaking, the rooms are truly 5 star, to be honest in my opinion exceed several other 5 star private game reserves that my wife and I have visited. They are exceptionally luxurious, and achieve that ultimate objective of being as one with the bush and exceedingly private. From your own heated plunge pool, to a summer bed in the middle of the bush they have thought of everything. The lodge itself is simply superb, wherein you are cared for by your own butler, the cuisine is different level, everyone smiles and are only too happy to help. However the real attraction was the game viewing and especially the birding, our guides Kyle and Madide where on point, birding knowledge and tracking skills enabled us to have exception elephant and lion sightings, with 8 new birds added to my list. If you enjoy this type of holiday a must do on the list.
The Ultimate Safari experience in Africa!
WOW - where do we begin? Having been to many of the leading hotels of the world before, Thanda left us speechless and we truly had some of our best memories ever there! The incredible service - we were treated like royalty! The people at Thanda takes it to a whole nother level!! The food - breakfast, lunch & dinner – was so good! The Safari - you are almost guaranteed to see the big five! What we loved the most was their knowledge and respect for the animals. We always felt safe. The Accommodation - We stayed in one of the luxury villas at the safari lodge - an architectural masterpiece! My wife is an architect – she truly values incredible spaces and design. The Lodge is super luxurious, your own piece of paradise in the African bush - best part of it – it is unfenced – such an amazing experience - we LOVED IT! You have your own private splash pool and “sala” (lookout hut) overlooking the wildlife, as well as our favourite - a romantic outdoor shower to see the stars at night. Each lodge has a private boma, we had the most romantic dinner in our boma. There are stunning tented camps and a luxury villa also as other options. We had our two-year-old boy with us, and It was very safe and kid friendly. Thanda was not only a holiday or place we visited – it become part of us, we will treasure these special memories forever. As the worlds leading travel, experiences, sport, food and romance journal – you won’t find a place in the world that can match this incredible experience.
As expressed in previous reviews, Thanda Lodge is top-notch place to stay in a well managed and excellent private reserve. We enjoyed a great three night stay and saw wonderful wildlife with a first class guide. Ashleigh, the lodge manager, was helpful and considerate at all times. We’d go back - anytime.
