Thula Thula Luxury Tented Camp


Be assured of exclusivity, privacy and intimacy

Thula Thula was home to legendary South African conservationist Lawrence Anthony - there are two lodges in Thula Thula - the luxury chalets at Thula Thula Safari Lodge and the luxury tented camp. With just eight well appointed and luxurious tents decorated and built in the old colonial safari style, exclusivity is gauranteed at Thula Thula Luxury Tented Camp. Enjoy a private living experience and couple that with the chance to enjoy a private candle-lit dining experience and you have the perfect blend for an intimate romantic safari. Enjoy the view from your private viewing deck from where you can spot all sorts of wildlife trotting, walking, running, flying and crawling past. Or jump into a warm foam filled bath or a hot outside shower and wash the worries away. 

When it comes time to eat a buffet lunch is served outside the thatched bar or sometimes next to the swimming pool. Or dine next to the roaring fire in the traditional boma and savour the taste of a traditional South African dish called a 'potjie' which is a game meat and vegetable stew cooked in a cast iron pot in the fire for an entire day!
