We stayed at Thunzi Bush lodge for two nights, and our only regret was not staying longer.
From the beautiful setting in a valley surrounded by indigenous forest, to the luxurious and private accomodation and the mouthwatering food served on the deck overlooking the valley, all accompanied by an attentive and friendly staff, this was truly an unforgettable experience.
A must is also a night walk in the surrounding forest looking for nocturnal creatures or just gazing up at the stars in the sky.
A walk along the nearby untouched beach and sand dunes, followed by lazing at the stunning swimming pool is also not to be missed.
All in all, a wonderful experience.
Thanks and Good Luck !
