About our home

Swap can be done with a stay in the game reserve combined with my beach appartment.
At Thula Thula private game reserve, the exchange is all inclusive of safaris and meals and luxury accommodation, where you will be guided by our professional game rangers to see wildlife and experience great encounters with elephant, rhino, hippo. leopard, buffalo and many more.

You can select a stay in our luxury Elephant safari Lodge or our luxury tented camp.
Both offer very high standard of service, cuisine, safari and accommodation. and you can choose to combine both for different kind of experience.

Thula Thula is the game reserve described in the international best selling book THE ELEPHANT WHISPERER written by Lawrence Anthony, my late husband, now translated into 14 languages. And in the book AN ELEPHANT IN MY KITCHEN , the sequel of Lawrence book that I wrote and was released in July 2018.
Thula Thula is dedicated to wildlife conservation.

Swap can be done anytime, apart from holidays season as Christmas or New year.

Apartment “GARDEN ONTHE BEACH” (pet friendly)
Umdloti beach is a beautiful little holiday and fisherman village situated 7 minutes from Durban airport and 7 minutes from large shopping centres. The apartment is situated right on the beach, on the Indian Ocean, with a large veranda with barbecue and a tropical garden. The apartment has got 3 bedrooms, with the main bedroom overlooking the sea, two bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, TV cable, wifi and the whole apartment is very bright, comfortable with a wonderful feel. Excellent restaurants on the beach, bars within walking distance, and a surfers paradise.
Great security in the building. One of the best apartment in the village. Shopping centers only 7 minutes away by car.
Perfect holidays in South Africa with beach and safari experience!
