Nature's call at its best with Thanda Safari Tented Camp

Situated within the privately owned and operated Thanda Private Game Reserve, Thanda Tented Camp strives to offer an authentic safari camp experience. To achieve this, the camp is non-electrified, with lighting provided using paraffin lanterns and the flickering firelight from the boma. Limited solar power and a back-up generator power the camp for a few hours each day, allowing guests to charge up their cameras and other gadgets.

Early morning and late-afternoon safaris through this private reserve are bound to yield some thrilling encounters. With 14,000 hectares of African wilderness to explore, you can expect sightings of the Big 5, as well as cheetah, warthog, hyena, and the ever-elusive wild dog. The flora and birdlife are plentiful and varied, affording the enthusiasts many hours of exciting exploration.

Accommodation consists of 14 sizeable Tents plus the exclusive Jabula Tent. Each tent features a ceiling fan, outdoor shower, in-room safe, sun deck and a personal minibar. The Jabula Tent – perfect for a honeymoon or a romantic getaway – is slightly removed from the main camp for some extra intimacy and features a private splash pool and dining boma.
