Run wild … trail running in the reserve

Feel the pulse of Africa beneath your feet while enjoying a weekend of trail running, game drives and good company.

How does an exciting and exhilarating trail running experience through the vast open spaces and magnificent terrain of a Zululand wildlife reserve sound? Exciting. Absolutely. Safe? Of course. You’ll be under the watchful eye of Thanda’s Anti-Poaching unit.

Thanda Safari is set in the northern reaches of Zululand, KwaZulu Natal where the Great Rift Valley meets the Lebombo Mountains. It’s a brilliant 5-star private game reserve, which puts a great emphasis on conservation and community upliftment, and has recently started a ‘Weekend with a Difference’ campaign … a host of weekends offering a bush break, plus so much more.
