Better then you could imagine!
It is beautiful here and the staff is absolutely wonderful! Saw so many animals on the safari drives and the drivers are all so knowledgeable about the area and its animals. Definitely made an experience I will never forget. They offer so much here and do it all so well, it's better than anyone could imagine.
What an absolute surprise.
We decided to book a two night stay as an overnight stop to Mozambique. We were not caught totally unawares and were blown away. Our wildlife experience was one of the best we have ever had even though we spend plenty of time in the bush. The sightings were outrageous and the guides and trackers fantastic. They manage to track the game we were looking for and nothing deterred them from finding the lions. Our Guide, Peace, no our tracker Zebulon were knowledgeable and constantly kept us on point with what as happening. The Lodge was nothing short of opulence with all the luxuries you could imagine. Our own plunge pool was perfect to cool down in between game drives and then we could have a quick nap on the outside loungers. The food and service was fantastic with our own “butler” Qinisani who hovered around us to compliment the ethos of this wonderful lodge. As a seasoned bush traveller I would rate this as one of our best ever experiences and highly recommend a stay at this lodge, you will not be disappointed.
Our recent experience at Thanda Safari Lodge can only be described as magical. From the moment we arrived at the main gate until we left we were treated like royalty, with respect, kindness, courtesy and graciousness. We felt very special and the staff went out of their way to create a luxurious, peaceful, personalised and enjoyable atmosphere. The food and accompanying wine could certainly be defined as fine dining and the service was immaculate. Nomvula looked after us with care and always had a smile on her face. The main lodge and accompanying public spaces were carefully decorated, clean and hygienic. The main attraction was however provided by our guide, Martin, and his tracker, Nhlahla, during our morning and late afternoon game drives. Their knowledge of the game, the trees, the plants, the insects and birds was extraordinary. The manner in which they inter-acted with their guests was extremely professional, knowledgeable and entertaining. They went out of their way to make our journey of discovery extremely special and our visit will remain a remarkable memory for the rest of our lives. Thank you Martin, Nhlahla and Thanda!!!
If Oyster Box were to do Game Reserve Lodges....
… It would look like this What a fantastic holiday we have just had at Thanda. From the excellent tent accommodation, the very tasty food and last but certainly not least the staff who were simply all brilliant. Nothing is too much hassle. They work as a team with no supervisor (unheard of in SA). I can not speak highly of them all though even more special praise need to be extended to our guide and tracker. I left with many new friends and I thank them all for ensuring we had the best time possible. If you only do 1 private game reserve then make sure this is this one
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.
