Even if you've traveled the world, you're bound to be surprised by Thanda Private Game Reserve - a truly unique land where humans and nature harmoniously co-exist. More than a luxury lodge, more than a dream safari destination, more than an African escape… Thanda Private Game Reserve 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 multiple winner of World’s Leading Luxury Lodge at the World Travel Awards and it's known for meaningful safari experiences and exclusive close-up encounters with Africa’s magnificent Big Five.
Sayari Camp (formerly known as Sayari Mara Camp) is a luxurious permanent camp situated in the far north of the Serengeti National Park. The undulating bush around is bisected by the Mara River and home to permanent game all year round. This part of the Serengeti is also a great place to witness the great migration: it’s within the Serengeti National Park and is as remote as possible from any populated areas. The spacious and luxurious tented suites provide panoramic views of the vast Serengeti plains and the wildlife that inhabit the area, especially during the migration season.
Experience the spectacular dunes of Sossusvlei via our private gate! Little Kulala is situated in the private 37 000-hectare Kulala Wilderness Reserve and consists of 11 climate-controlled, thatched "kulalas" (the word means 'to sleep') which merge impeccably into the desert landscape, each with a rooftop ‘skybed’ for stargazing, private plunge pool, and both indoor and outdoor showers. An elegant entertainment area includes a library, wine cellar, craft boutique, lounge and dining areas. Little Kulala’s interiors make use of neutral colours, gorgeous textures and natural light and takes its inspiration from its surroundings, notably from the magnificent Dead Vlei.
Located high on the slopes of the Oloolaimutia Hills, Masai Mara Sopa Lodge was one of the first safari lodges to be built in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, a reason why its gardens and trees are so lush and mature. All the buildings follow the design of traditional African round houses with conical roofs, and these stretch along the line of the hills with the impressively large public area buildings and the swimming pool at their centre. Famous for the abundance of lion, the Great Wildebeest Migration and the Maasai people, well known for their distinctive custom and dress, it is without a doubt one of Africa’s most famous safari destinations.
