Thanda launches all-new spa offering to bushveld travellers

Located in the heart of award-winning Thanda Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s KwaZulu Natal region, Thanda Tented Camp has launched a totally new spa offering.

Tented Camp guests returning from game drives can now enjoy some pampering in their own canvas spa tent.

In keeping with the camp’s non-electrified offering it presents a wide variety of manually based treatments using non-allergenic oils by Spalicious, a proudly South African manicure, pedicure and body range derived from natural plant oils as well as the SIX skincare products.

Adding a flavour of fun to its therapies, the spa menu features Zulu inspired massages and facials including the Zulwini (heavenly) Massage and the Ebuhleni (beauty) Facial that follow the rhythm and tempo of the Zulu music softly playing in the background.

The Spa team have also developed other techniques to reflect the environment.


One example is the Ndlovu Walk (elephant walk) treatment, a deep lymph drainage massage, based on the deep but gentle pressure of the elephant’s footsteps.

With its tucked away position and splendid views across the bushveld, the spa tent invites guests to relax and be at one with themselves and nature.

The Thanda Spa located at Thanda Safari Lodge has also introduced a new spa menu.

Comprising two treatment rooms, a sauna, a hydrobath and a rock pool, the new team of highly qualified spa therapists have added a series of holistic treatments using highly acclaimed products with natural healing benefits.

A variety of Dermalogica facials complement the menu of massage and body treatments.

Embracing their natural surrounds, treatments include the Hot Stone Massage, Zulu Reflexology and a Mineral Salt Scrub, in addition to therapies that focus on specific needs and concerns – the AGE Smart and Medibac Clearing treatments.
