Thanda Private Game Reserve, KwaZulu Natal
Situated 23km north of Hluhluwe in northern Zululand, Thanda Private Game Reserve is a celebration of the Zulu people and their rich culture. Not only will guests have the opportunity to learn more about their history and traditions, the people from the adjacent tribal land will benefit in many ways from the creation of Thanda Private Game Reserve. It΄s the magic of romance and Zulu culture that makes Thanda unforgettable.
Thanda Private Game Reserve aims to restore nature's balance by reintroducing species endemic to the area, as well as the Big Five. The rehabilitated land has encouraged the birdlife and wildlife to flourish, and has assisted in the re-establishment of the natural ecosystem.
Game drives in the open game viewing vehicles and bush walks guided by knowledgeable and experienced game rangers and trackers afford guests a better understanding and appreciation of our wild heritage. Private game drives are also available on request.
An abundance of game activities awaits guests who would like to enjoy all that the area has to offer. The Elephant Coast, as this part of KwaZulu Natal is now called, has 21 different ecosystems and is home to a rich variety of fauna and flora.
