ROYAL THONGA

Royal Thonga Safari Lodge, is the culmination of a dream of the local community and private investors to create a natural paradise for visitors to this unique reserve.

This 4 star lodge is architecturally designed to emulate the local Thonga building style, and each of the 14 chalets are uniquely positioned to offer guests total privacy and luxurious comfort within a sand forest in Tembe Elephant Park.

Natural materials and timber give a warm organic ambience and invite the outdoors in. All rooms are appointed with quality furnishings and bathrooms come complete with an indoor and private outdoor shower.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”
