Thanda Tented Camp


A luxurious colonial-style tented camp for a back-to-nature adventure in lesser visited KwaZulu-Natal.

This tented safari camp is the perfect location for an authentic but comfortable safari experience. You’ll discover a rustic colonial luxury inside the canvased exteriors, with each featuring a four-poster bed, generous en-suite, and a private decking area with spectacular views. For authenticity, the camp is non-electrified, but for a few hours each day, a backup generator will allow you to charge any electrical essentials. Shared areas include the bar and open-air boma, but we really love the large outdoor pool, which overlooks a stunning view of the surrounding reserve.
