The Thanda Tented Camp is a unique safari experience, built in a colonial safari-style structure yet equipped with the ultimate in luxury accessories. The five gorgeously appointed tens each have four-poster beds, en-suite canvas bathrooms and incredible views of the game reserve. For those who are feeling sociable, there’s a dining tent at Thanda Tented Camp for meals, a dramatic outdoor boma for traditional South African braais, a stunning outdoor lounge and a sparkling plunge pool for a dip at the end of a long, hot, South African day. Boma fires and paraffin lamps ensure that the camp is softly lit at all times, and the romantic atmosphere is unmistakeable and quintessentially South African.
For those wanting to unwind even further, the Wellness Centre is a fully-fledged Africology spa with a number of heavenly signature treatments created just for guests of Thanda Private Game Reserve.
Game drives are offered in the early morning and late afternoon, and skilled rangers and trackers lead guests on adventures in search of the Big 5. Other popular wildlife that is often spotted from the comfort of the luxury Land Rovers are wild dog, endangered black rhino, cheetah, hyena, warthog and plains game, as well as a vast array of birdlife.
After the excitement of the game drive, there’s nothing more satisfying than returning to camp for some superb South African cuisine. Fine dining is offered by head chef Richard Phiri, who combines his passion for South African cuisine with influences from Milan, Malawi and Mauritius. Superb wines accompany every meal to ensure an unparalleled dining experience.
For those who want not only an authentic safari experience, the chance to see the Big Five and a taste of the South African bush, but also an extraordinarily luxury experience, Thanda Tented Camp is the ideal choice.
