Thandulula Luxury Tents

Southport, South Coast, KwaZulu Natal.
Self Catering Accommodation in Southport

Thandulula Luxury TentsThandulula means "unwind" and is a first for KZN South Coast: our unique canvas-log accommodation - a very different holiday experience in nature without sacrificing luxury or safety. Thandulula is owner built and operated and the special welcome and warm, friendly hospitality is our trade-mark.

We are in operation since December 2003 and the 4 units are set in a park like, well established garden with trees surrounding the units. Guests often referred to their stay as "bushveld by the sea" or "the tree-house by the sea". There are 4 units and up to 14 guests can be accommodated. We are child friendly and our Rietbos family unit is perfect for parents with small children, the 2 x 4 sleeper units are most popular with parents with teenagers - excited teenagers sleep separately from the parents in their own tented-bedroom. The 1 x 2 sleeper unit is our honeymoon suite and is such an amazing experience that we often had honeymooners coming back for a first or second year anniversary !

All units are fully equipped & self catering, with own bathroom, kitchen, outside deck and braai area. Linen, electric blankets on the beds, bath towels, TV's (bring your own DSTV decoder), a small safe, microwave, medium size fridge, 2 plate table top stove with small oven, are standard to each unit. A daily service is included in our tariff. A swimming pool with a lapa, a sandpit, small jungle gym and laundry facilities are on site. There is ample secure, shady parking for your car. The property is enclosed by an electrified fence and each unit has an alarm system.

Thandulula is situated 8 km North of Port Shepstone in Southport, approximately one and a half hour's drive from Durbans' King Shaka International Airport and Southport Beach is only one kilometer away. The property borders on the Mhlangankulu River with nature totally unspoilt on the river bank. Small wildlife are on the property and a rich and diverse bird life provides many hours of entertainment. The call of the Fish Eagle is a regular sound, and the strange call of the Tree Dassie at night is a genuine wilderness experience !

We are members of KZN Tourism in Durban, the local UGU South Coast Tourism and The Southern Explorer. The free of charge Southern Explorer's route guide is a very useful tool to explore KZN South Coast and is distributed to each family visiting Thandulula. With this route guide on hand, all the interesting venues on the South Coast can be visited and short or a full day tour can be planned according to this guide.

Top class restaurants, coffee shops, take away outlets, chemists, medical services, excellent golf courses, bowling greens and fishing spots are in close vicinity.

Rates are from R215 per person per night and special tariffs for children. Our out of season special - stay for 4 or more nights and get one night stay free, is running from January to November each year (excluding school holidays).

We are looking forward to personally welcome each guest on site.
