Winning both South Africa’s Leading Luxury Lodge and Africa’s Leading Luxury Lodge categories at the 2013 Africa ceremony of the World Travel Awards, Thanda Private Game Reserve has again been distinguished for its accommodation offerings and guest service.
Situated in the heart of Zululand, Thanda is the essence of the ultimate luxury safari experience comprising 14,000 hectares of spectacular wilderness and offering excellent game-viewing opportunities together with a strong community and conservation commitment. Although Thanda has won the ‘World’s Leading Luxury Lodge’ category for the last four consecutive years, the last time the South African and African travel industry recognised the game reserve was in 2009.
The Thanda Safari Lodge has recently seen a refurbishment of its 9 suites. Circular in structure and reminiscent of a traditional Zulu homestead against a hill, they boast breath-taking views of the surrounding game reserve. The suites each have their own spacious lounge area and master bedroom with inter-leading fireplace, bathroom complete with a beautiful, oval shaped bath. They also feature a thatched, elevated sala (outdoor deck), a heated splash pool as well as a private boma for an intimate dining experience.
Pierre Delvaux, Managing Director of Thanda Private Game Reserve attended the World Travel Awards Africa Gala Ceremony in Nairobi, Kenya.
“Having recently completed a refurbishment of the Thanda Safari Lodge, we are indeed extremely fortunate and proud that we can continue to be judged as one of the finest Safari Lodges in South Africa and Africa,” said Delvaux. “This accolade is testament to the longstanding and valuable contribution everyone at Thanda has made to ensure our guests enjoy an exceptional stay with us. Our accommodation offering in a private, secluded environment is further enhanced by Thanda’s exciting safari activities as well as the Zulu community interaction and conservation commitment guests can experience during their stay.”
