South Africa Tourism Awards

Type: Accommodation – Lodge
Category: Service Excellence

Motivation for award: Royal Thonga Safari Lodge is a culmination of a dream of the local community, private investors and Tembe Royal family to create a natural paradise (in the bush) for visitors to experience this unique reserve. Natural materials and timber give a warm organic ambience and invite the outdoors in. All rooms are appointed with quality furnishings and bathrooms come complete with an indoor and private outdoor shower. Therefore, we wish express our unique service whilst being true to our culture and diversity as a community based lodge and verify that it’s ok to be proud of your unique and authentic tradition, culture and community. Winning this award by Royal Thonga Safari Lodge would be a win for the Thonga/Tembe people, other communities and properties that celebrate their diversity and culture and show off the true South African cultures through service excellence.

Region: Kwazulu Natal / Umkhanyakude District
