Thunzi Bush Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 February 2006

We stayed at Thunzi Bush Lodge at the end of our trip from Cape Town and along the Garden Route. It really is like an oasis; one of the most relaxing and tranquil places we've stayed at, set amongst some amazing scenery. Tren and Mark were really friendly and so helpful with all the local activities and really made us feel welcome. The lodge is lovely, you can have breakfast on your balcony, and highly recommend having dinner in the open air forest clearing. Overall, we had a fabulous stay and would certainly recommend it.
