Thanda Tented Camp Spa | Bush Retreat
Following the success of its first superb spa that’s been enjoyed for years by guests at Thanda Safari Lodge and the private Villa iZulu, the luxury Thanda Tented Camp has just launched a tranquil new spa to cater especially for its guests. Just under four hours’ drive north of Durban, Thanda now offers yet another reason to slip away to the bush for an indulgent few days away.
Offering a blissful pampering, the new spa is set in a safari tent and leads to an open-air deck with views of the Royal Zulu Mountains. Wildlife roams freely here and the new addition blends naturally with the bush. Treatments are equally reflective of Thanda’s heritage, with options such as Ndlovu Walk on its menu. ‘Ndlovu’ means elephant in isiZulu, and the lymph drainage massage technique is based on the deep but gentle pressure of elephant footsteps.
Non-allergenic aromatherapy and massage oils, herbs and essences are used for treatments, and the Spalicious range includes delectable creams, oils, soaks and self-heating sugar scrubs with fruit extracts and herb combinations that combine the best of African and global influences. For facials, the Six range of skincare products is used – a proudly South African product that’s been scientifically developed without any animal testing. It offers optimal skin comfort and a memorable sensory experience. Be sure to book a session as soon as you arrive: there’s no better way to unwind and slowly let the bush work its magic.
