Even before we arrived, the staff at Thunzi couldn't do enough to help plan our trip, including arranging airport transfers and car hire. We did the Addo / Big five package with meals included and it was perfect. The breakfasts were amazing and the evening meals were absolutely spot on for interesting local food for us, but also suitable for the children. We had a picnic delivered to our balcony for lunch on the first day which was just what was needed to recover from the long flight from London. The accommodation and setting were both tranquil and exquisite. Lounging by the pool was the perfect way to unwind and relax to start our holiday.
