Thula Thula,  a family owned and operated private game lodge, is situated in the heart of Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal.

This 4500 ha, malaria free game reserve was established in 1911 and has been operational as Thula Thula since 1999. It is home to a wide variety of game like elephant, buffalo, rhino, leopard, giraffe and birds.

Thula Thula, with its centuries of cultural and wildlife heritage, takes pride in tracing back its origin to the private hunting grounds of King Shaka, founder of the Zulu Empire. The first historic meeting between Shaka and his father (Senzangakhona), which set the stage for the creation of the Zulu nation, took place at the Nseleni River at Thula Thula. The Zulu name Thula Thula literally means peace and tranquillity.

With its unique atmosphere, stylish décor and superb cuisine, Thula Thula private game reserve offers you the choice of exclusive accommodation between the Elephant Safari Lodge, renowned gourmet destination, and the Luxury Tented Camp, offering an authentic African bush experience in the heart of Zululand. Both offering a very unique and different experience.
