More than a luxury lodge, more than a dream safari wedding destination, more than an African escape… Thanda Safari offers an authentically South African wildlife experience, matched with sincere commitment to the Zulu culture and passionate conservation of the environment. Meaning ‘love’ in isiZulu, Thanda is a proud member of The Leading Hotels of the World and multiple winner of World’s Leading Luxury Lodge. It is known for meaningful safari experiences and exclusive close-up encounters with Africa’s magnificent Big Five. Guests of Thanda Safari Lodge and Villa iZulu enjoy exclusive access to the Thanda Spa. It offers a menu of treatments including reflexology; aromatherapy; hydrating, exfoliating and detox body treatments; facials; African massages; hand and feet treatments; and more.
The non-electrified Thanda Tented Camp is built in colonial safari style offering an authentic bush experience. The colonial safari-style tents have viewing decks and en-suite bathrooms. Public facilities at the Tented Camp include a dining tent, a boma area, a bonfire circle, a pool and a sala consisting of an ‘open-air’ lounge.
Perfect for families, kids are invited to complete The Junior Rangers Course during their stay at Thanda. Kids will be taught about different mammals, birds, trees, spoors and even stars. Special bush walks in the vicinity of the accommodation will be arranged for younger children.
The Game Reserve is called Thanda for a reason. Meaning ‘love’ in isiZulu, it represents the heart and soul of passion; the spirit of togetherness.
Have your wedding ceremony in a sheltered bush location under marula trees, with plains game observing curiously from a distance. Celebrate your wedding reception safari-style, in a star-lit boma or on a deck overlooking unspoilt African bush. Let ululating Zulu dancers usher you down the aisle and dance wildly in enthusiastic celebration, as you and your beloved are pronounced husband and wife.
Whatever your personal style, there is no better place than Thanda Safari in which to celebrate romance and to begin your married lives together.
