Fodor's Expert Review Thanda Tented Camp

Off N2, D242, Hluhluwe, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Perfect for a family or friends' reunion (although it's great for individual travelers too), this intimate, luxurious camp deep in the bush brings you into close contact with your surroundings. You might wake up in your spacious safari tent with en-suite bathroom and private veranda to find a warthog or nyala grazing outside. The camp has its own vehicle, ranger, and tracker, and a huge sala with pool and sundeck. Jabula (meaning "happiness" in isiZulu) Tent is the ultimate bush honeymoon getaway.
