We stayed at Thunzi bush Lodge and we were not disappointed because everything was the way it was on the internet. We enjoyed ourselves, everything was clean and the rooms were beautiful and tidy. Me and my boyfriend wanted a peaceful place where we can relax and detox from stressful working environment.The lodge was great choice for us as we enjoyed our stay and definitely loved waking up to a beautiful view of nature.
