We went as a group of 31 and really enjoyed every moment. We enjoyed the mud pool,the spring pools and quad riding was fun.This is a must for a family weekend and you can have fun knowing that the kids are safe.

We were all so impressed and would recommend to anyone. Not a 5 star hotel, very basic ,3 hot pools plus Roman baths, jacuzzi, Zip line and lots more to do. Private massages again very reasonable. Unfortunately roads very bad. Still worth a visit.

Worth the effort to gt to this place, the road was ok (normal sedan) but took an hour to get there from the sealed road. We had hours of fun in the spa baths and mud pool. Kids really enjoyed the mud pool. Restaurant was slow and disappointing.

We stayed at Thangami for one night. Firstly once you have entered the reserve the signing is poor and it is confusing as to where to park. Once we entered reception, we were not even acknowledged. Once she eventually attended to us, everything was the biggest mission for her. Not very friendly and not knowledgeable about the place at all....

The route was extremely well described on the correspondence & the map which I received from Thangami. The GPS & Tom-Tom found no streets, so without the description, I would have had concern at reaching my destination. The scenery is out of this world!. Travel slowly where the road is bad and you will discover magnificent spots. I came across...

Thangami is our place in the sun. We were so impressed with the overall state of the place. So many improvements made since we were there the last time. Thangami has the best of both worlds, you can have the bush experience with the luxury all in to one. The spa was such a surprise and I made use of...

Just had an amazing visit to Thangami. Second time and made a 600km detour just to drop in for 2 nights. That is how highly we rate it. It really is like visiting family. Thangami offers something for everyone. From lazing about next to the pool, to adventure sports. The staff are great, efficient and friendly and the facilities too....
