About Thunzi Bush Lodge

About Thunzi Bush Lodge

Thunzi in isiXhosa, the local African language, means “in the shade” describing a typical lazy afternoon in the forest valley. This tranquil sanctuary of coastal forest can be found in the malaria-free Eastern Cape province nestled at the base of a 44 hectare private valley overlooking the pristine and lush De Stades river wetland. Conveniently situated en route to Cape Town only 25 km from the friendly city of Port Elizabeth and two kilometres from the untouched Maitland Beach, Thunzi is perfectly positioned as a charming natural destination to complete a scenic Garden Route adven

Romantic: We offer romantic picnics where we do everything for you, all you need to do is select your food from the menu and we'll do the rest!
