African Pride Announces New 5 Star Properties

Following closely after the announcement that African Pride Hotels have added Melrose Arch Hotel to their stable, they are proud to announce the addition of yet another exclusive top-end property to this superior-deluxe brand.  Thula Thula - Exclusive Private Game Reserve in Zululand is joining the African Pride brand, and expects to realize increased growth and market exposure.

African Pride Hotels has become known for the success that it has achieved with Lion Sands Private Game Reserve, which has effectively established itself within both the local and international market as one of the most exclusive game reserves that this country has to offer. “We are pleased to welcome Thula Thula, which is known for its blend of cultural and wildlife heritage and is the oldest private game reserve in KZN,” said Stan Evans Managing Director for African Pride Hotels.

Thula Thula, which is soon to form part of the new Royal Zulu Umfolozi Reserve, is situated only 30 minutes from Richards Bay harbour and airport and less than 2 hours drive from Durban.  This exclusive reserve has 7 luxury thatched chalets decorated in flavours of ethnic and colonial elegance.  Thula Thula offers superb cuisine with as much privacy and comfort that GUESTS could possibly wish for.  Candle-lit dinners are served either in the dining room, around the pool, on the veranda, or in the Boma where a traditional bush barbecue is served under the African sky.  The walk-in wine cellar offers a great selection of superior wines, while other attractions include the Zulu Village, Indian Ocean beaches, whale watching and an 18-hole golf course.

“Known for it’s exclusivity and superb wildlife, Thula Thula will most definitely fit effortlessly into our brand. We are delighted to welcome them into our group!” concluded Evans.
