Thanda Safari Lodge
Thanda Private Game Reserve, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa - Premier 5
Step out onto your wooden deck. Take a dip in your heated infinity pool. Enjoy dinner served in your own private boma. Or admire the African sunset from the circular daybed atop your thatched outdoor sala.
Thanda Safari Lodge is known for its 9 beautiful bush suites - each self-contained for absolute privacy. Shaped like a traditional Zulu homestead, the 220m² suites have panoramic views of the surrounding game reserve.
Each suite is a tribute to abundance, Africa-style - with a spacious lounge and majestic master bedroom and double-sided fireplace. The bathroom has a vanity, his-and-hers basins, egg-shaped bath, enclosed toilet as well as indoor and outdoor showers.
Use your suite as a secret hideaway for relaxation, romance or reflection - or as the base from which you head out to enjoy one of our many magnificent experiences.
Thanda Safari Lodge's public areas are colourful and drenched in light, with touches of beading, welcoming leather and authentic wood. They include an inviting library overlooking a waterhole that is favoured by elephant and other game, a private business centre, a cigar bar and an impressively stocked wine cellar.
There's also the lounge: our guests' starting point for the steaming coffee and biscuits and delectable high tea that herald every game drive. Featuring African art, huge windows, fascinating books on African legends, plush sofas and dark wooden accents - brightened by rich hues - our lounge epitomises African hospitality.
Guests of Thanda Safari Lodge and Villa iZulu enjoy exclusive access to the Thanda Spa, which is located in a lush yet hidden corner of the lodge property. It offers a glorious menu of treatments including reflexology; aromatherapy; hydrating; exfoliating and detox body treatments; facials; African massages; hand and feet treatments; hydrotherapy baths; hot and cold Kneipp therapy pools; and more.
