A beautiful tented camp in the heart of Thanda Private Game Reserve. Thanda Tented gives visitors the feeling of a truly authentic safari experience with the luxurious tented suites, flickering candle light and spectacular bush setting.

Made up of just fifteen tented suites, each en-suite and with a spacious private deck, Thanda Tented Camp offers visitors to the wilderness areas of KwaZulu Natal the opportunity to experience safari in an authentic but luxurious tented style.

This is a place to switch off and immerse yourself in the South African bush. Solar power and a back-up generator provide power to the tents during the day, everything is switched off at night leaving the camp calm and silent for your better enjoyment of the African nigh sounds. Pathways are lit with paraffin lights and dinner is by candlelight, enjoy a feeling of stepping back into old school safari.

Authenticity is no substitute for comfort and at Thanda Tented you will not be disappointed. There's a comfortable central area with large sofas and beautiful views, a well-stocked bar and ever-smiling barman. The waterhole entices varied wildlife closer to the camp for a drink and is visible from the sun-loungers spaced around the rim-flow swimming pool.
