Weddings & Honeymoons the Thanda Way

Meaning ‘Love’ in isiZulu, Thanda represents the heart and soul of passion; the spirit of togetherness. Imagine Zulu dancers leading you down the aisle; picture yourself exchanging your vows in a sheltered bush location under the ancient marula trees, followed by a safari-style reception in a star-lit boma or breathtaking venue overlooking the African bush. There is no better place than the Thanda Safari Game Reserve in which to celebrate romance, marriage and life. Our wedding packages are also offered for vow renewals or special celebrations.
