“Our family of 3 had an absolutely fabulous time at Thula Thula in July 2017.
We stayed in the Safari Tent Lodge for 6 nights and had the last night at the lodge. Both accommodation places had wonderful staff that were, friendly and very attentive. The Main lodge room was larger than the family tent (which was not exactly small). Our time at the Tented Camp was very special as we were there for 6 days and got to know the Rangers, staff and other guests well. We felt very at home and nothing was too much trouble.
We are bird watchers, love taking photos and being in the bush so the guided walks were thoroughly enjoyed by us all & not to be missed. The game drives were probably our favorite activity. Each time we went out we would see something different. We were lucky enough to see the elephants each game drive we went on. Stopping to enjoy the sunset, views and smell of the bush were a wonderful way to end the day.
We chose Thula Thula for a few different reasons.
My daughter & I had read and loved ‘The Elephant Whisperer’ (about the Thula Thula elephants) and wanted to see the amazing herd, their home and the dedicated people who look after them.
We loved the respect that Thula Thula owners had for the local people, animals and the environment.
If you haven’t read the book before you visit you will still have an absolutely wonderful time. We had the most fabulous guides who made the drives, walks and chats so much fun. The food was lovely and day trips included a fabulous picnic lunch. All guests we met during our stay loved their time there and everyone was either a return visitor or planning a return trip. We definitely will be back!” Rhonda C from Melbourne Australia
