THANDA SAFARI LODGE AND VILLA IZULU HONOURED AT THE 2016 WORLD TRAVEL AWARDS AS LEADING DESTINATIONS IN SOUTH AFRICA
The multi-award winning Thanda Safari, the private game reserve located in KwaZulu Natal, was honoured twice at World Travel Awards™ Africa & Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony 2016.
Villa iZulu, the majestic private safari villa with five well-appointed suites, earned a World Travel Award as South Africa’s Leading Luxury Private Villa 2016 whilst Thanda Safari Lodge, comprising 9 vast suites with panoramic views of the wilderness, received the award for South Africa's Leading Safari Lodge 2016.
The red-carpet Gala Ceremony, regularly referred to as the “Oscars” of the travel industry, was held in Zanzibar, Tanzania, before an invited audience of the industry's leading luminaries and international media. Accepting the award on behalf of Thanda was Thanda Safari’s Managing Director, Pierre Delvaux:
“We are particularly excited to be honoured again by World Travel Awards for the outstanding quality of the safari experience at Thanda Safari. We look forward to continuing to enhance that experience for the benefit of our guests who choose to visit us from all over the world to experience the marvels of the African bush. Perhaps more than anything, these awards recognise the truly dedicated professionals behind Thanda Safari. We couldn’t have achieved this without their talent and relentless dedication, and we’re delighted to share the recognition with them.”
It is Thanda’s longstanding and integrated relationship with the local communities that makes a stay here exceptional. Guests enjoy numerous activities, from Big Five game drives and specialised bush walks, to Zulu cultural tours into the rural community and photographic safaris, further enhancing their African experience.
World Travel Awards™ is voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide, and this accolade recognises the commitment to excellence, which an organisation has demonstrated in the last twelve months.
Thanda Private Game Reserve is owned by Danir AB.
