Royal Thonga Safari Lodge
IMMERSE YOURSELF IN AFRICA’S CULTURAL HERITAGE
For holidaymakers planning a self-drive into southern Mozambique from KwaZulu-Natal, this is the perfect opportunity to add Royal Thonga Safari Lodge to your itinerary. This 4 star establishment is the crown jewel of ‘the garden province’, quietly nestled within the perimeter of the game-rich Tembe Elephant Park. Aside from the bounty of birds, butterflies and wildlife, Royal Thonga Safari Lodge is a treasure trove of outdoor activities that will occupy even the most adventurous visitors. Choose from 4×4 game drives, seek out the Big 5, enjoy guided walks through the sand forest and that’s just the start. Trips to the local village, the nearby cashew farm and butterfly tent must be included, too.
For that perfect beach day, Royal Thonga is right on the doorstep of Kosi Bay, where families and friends can embark on loggerhead turtle tracking tours, snorkelling excursions and whale watching boat trips. Of course, if you want to put your feet up and unwind, this is just the place to do it. Crafted with natural timber and thatch, the lodge emulates a local Thonga village building style, with luxurious touches. There is a swimming pool, on-site restaurant and plenty of quiet corners to enjoy a moment to yourself.
