Thanda Tented Camp
Thanda Private Game Reserve, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa - Premier 5
Within Thanda Tented Camp you will encounter minimal lighting and no artifice, with beautiful nature and jaw-dropping scenery enhanced by flickering firelight from the boma and warm paraffin lanterns to guide your feet along the walkway.
This is the bush as nature intended: open, inviting, unconstrained. So if you're the kind of traveller who values the genuine over the glorified; reality over richness, this is where you want to be. You will encounter unparalleled closeness to the bush and its sounds; unspoilt views of the night's millions of stars; and absolute authenticity.
Thanda Tented Camp offers a relaxed and real safari experience. It comprises 14 spacious tents, each with a private sun deck and en-suite canvas bathroom. In addition the 15th tent, the Jabula Tent, is particularly suited to bridal couples, honeymooners, families and those seeking extra beautiful accommodation for special occasions.
To add to the genuine bush atmosphere, the camp is non-electrified. However, it does have limited solar and battery power with a back-up generator to power the tents for a few hours each day, so guests can charge cameras and phones. To deter wild animals, there is a partial electrified fence along the perimeter of Thanda Tented Camp.
The camp's shared areas include a reception area, a curio shop, a recently refurbished Hemingway-style lounge area, a dining area featuring authentic African curios, a large rim-flow pool surrounded by loungers and umbrellas, a new waterhole to entice large and small game, and a new boma - all decorated in rustic natural shades and complemented by the rich, warm hues of the African sunset.
Thanda Tented Camp does not admit children under 12 years old.
