Thanda Tented Camp lies on Thanda Private Game Reserve in northern KwaZulu Natal. This is the bush as nature intended: open, inviting, unconstrained. So if you’re the kind of person who values the genuine over the glorified and reality over riches, this is where you want to be. However Thanda Tented Camp does not compromise on luxury or service – adding rugged refinement to its authentic safari experience.
Accommodation at Thanda Tented Camp
Perched on a hill, it offers 15 spacious and well-appointed tents, decorated in a colonial style with four poster beds, teak furniture and campaign chairs. Each has a private sun deck and canvas en suite bathroom. Generator power allows you to charge camera batteries and phones in the tents. However lighting is consciously kept to a minimum and the safari ambience is enhanced by flickering firelight from the boma and warm paraffin lanterns to guide you to your tent.
The Jabula suite is very special – a bedroom with king sized bed and separate lounge area, ideal for honeymoons, anniversaries, perhaps a family or those seeking an extra little something…The highlight is the outdoor shower and plunge pool with its view spanning over the whole reserve.
The camp’s shared areas include a lounge area, intimate dining tent, long rimflow pool with stunning bushveld views and sun loungers and a new boma – all decorated in rustic natural shades to complement the rich, warm hues of the African sunset. Spa treatments using Africology products are available in the privacy of your tent. To deter wild animals, there is a partial electrified fence along the perimeter. The lodge accepts children from 12 years old with extra beds placed in the spacious tents.
Thanda Tented Camp offers a relaxed and real safari experience with unparalleled closeness to the bush and its sounds; jaw-dropping scenery and unspoilt views of millions of stars.
