Beautiful and peaceful place. The chalets was equipped with everything we needed, very clean and comfortable. The service we received was fantastic. Unfortunately the weather wasn't warm enough to sim in the pool, but the views and quietness made up for it, I wish I had stayed a little longer...

Heaven on Earth
My wife and I went during quiet time (February), and I must say, this was the best place I've stayed in so far. The lodge we stayed in was huge, and but comfortable. Everything was so nice and neat. Amazing view right outside. Air conditioning and heating was available during the colder nights. Thunzi Bush Lodge is just one of those places you have to visit to fully experience how amazing it is. There is no wifi, which I would usually be upset about, but it gives you more time to spend with your loved one (or family). Thunzi Bush Lodge is a place I'll be returning to again. HANDS DOWN

Absolute gem only 30mins outside of central PE! Such a treat to leave the hustle and bustle of life and escape to pure serenity and luxury! Beautifully constructed and well-thought out chalets. It took only one night to feel rejuvenated and relaxed! Amazing!

Geweldig warm ontvangst en prachtig verblijf!
Geweldig ontvangst, super vriendelijk personeel, heel mooie en schone tent! Eigen badkamer én keuken! Heerlijk gegeten savonds, daarna heerlijk aan het water gezeten met kampvuur. Een hele leuke gezellige game drive gedaan in de ochtend. Genoten van onze ‘Steven Steven Steven’! Zo ontzettend jammer dat we er maar 1 nacht verbleven!
