Thanda Private Game Reserve sees brand refresh

Thanda Private Game Reserve, located in the heart of South Africa’s KwaZulu Natal province, has undergone a three-month brand refresh which sees the launch of a newly designed website, stunning new imagery together with fresh messaging and a new blog.

In addition to ongoing operational enhancements and upgrades, Thanda will also be introducing new guest activities and specialist packages over the coming months.

Visually impactful and streamlined for the time-constrained browser, the website uses award-winning software that offers full mobile compatibility and works across all devices, platforms, social media and search engines.

A real-time central reservations system is also being incorporated to facilitate the booking process for the direct customer. 

Furthermore, stunning new photography of the reserve and of Thanda’s properties has been taken, providing fresh and updated imagery of its safari and wildlife offering as well as its cultural heritage.

The re-branding process has also seen the renaming of its three distinctive accommodation choices:

  • Abundant in size and as colourful as its people, Thanda Safari Lodge features nine bush suites shaped like a traditional Zulu homestead with panoramic views of the surrounding game reserve.
  • Set amid lush green lawns and with its own helipad, Villa iZulu is a majestic five-suite villa that provides an outstanding safari hideaway for those seeking true privacy.
  • Comprising 15 spacious canvas tents, including Jabula (‘Happiness’) Tent, Thanda Tented Camp offers a relaxed and authentic non-electrified safari experience.

Thanda Private Game Reserve has been operational for almost ten years and is privately owned by businessman Dan and Christin Olofsson, Sweden’s largest private investor and philanthropist in South Africa.

Located in the heart of Zululand, it offers an authentically South African wildlife experience matched with sincere commitment to the Zulu culture and passionate conservation of the environment.

Meaning ‘love’ in isiZulu, Thanda is a proud member of the Leading Hotels of the World and multiple winner of World’s Leading Luxury Lodge at the World Travel Awards.

Known for its exciting close-up encounters with Africa’s magnificent Big Five, it is the Zulu character that is embraced throughout the guest’s stay which makes a stay here truly unique.
