About Jabula Tent

Within Thanda Tented Camp lies Thanda's Jabula Tent. Meaning 'happiness' in isiZulu, it is romantic and private, yet beautifully spacious. Decorated in sophisticated safari chic, it is ideal for bridal couples, honeymooners, special occasion travelers as well as families wanting to share with each other under one canvas roof.

The Jabula Tent has a king-sized bed and separate lounge, en-suite canvas bathroom with outdoor shower, splash pool and spectacular views of the 14,000 hectare game reserve. While it nestles off to the side of Thanda Tented Camp, it is both near to and slightly remote from the shared areas, to enable true solitude.

The camp's shared areas include a reception area, a curio shop, a recently refurbished lounge area, a dining area featuring authentic African curios, a large rim-flow pool surrounded by loungers and umbrellas, and a new boma - all decorated in natural shades and complemented by the rich, warm hues of the African sunset.
