What a wonderful setting! The scenery of this place is just simply amazing. It's a little peace of heaven cut out of the natural bush. It was very relaxing to wake up in the morning with nature in surround sound! And the Babaans Walk is a must for all who stay at Thunzi. The whole experience was topped off by an amazing staff - Debbie, Zami, and Zoleka and all the rest. Friendly, warm people committed to making it a great experience. The meals were great, and the breakfasts on the balcony overlooking the wetland area, gave us a refreshing start to our day. The dinner under the open sky is also a must!
Thunzi is relaxing in the true sense of the word!
