Thanda’s Marketing Director Anita Vernes said; “We are extremely pleased and honoured to have received this award this year. This particular accolade holds a special place in our hearts as it encompasses our entire reserve. Thanda has consistently maintained high standards at our three amazing and exclusive product offerings, but we feel that our greatest achievement is our involvement of the local communities surrounding our reserve in the success of Thanda which is one of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’. 86% of the staff at Thanda come from the local communities, and to be receiving recognition for the game reserve, which community land forms part of, is a great accomplishment for us. We are delighted to see that the commitment, passion and energy that the Thanda team put in to make this magnificent game reserve what it is, has greatly paid off. As our Managing Director Pierre Delvaux always says, team work makes the dream work”.

Thanda in the province of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, beat strong competition to win the coveted award this year, and it comes in the wake of the opening of Thanda’s new tented camp, which has 14 luxurious tents each with a private viewing deck and on-suite canvas bathroom. The tented camp also boasts a sophisticated, spacious and romantic Honeymoon Tent. The new tented camp product has given Thanda the cutting edge and competitive advantage as all lodges strive to adapt and grow their market share in a climate of global economic stress and debt.The World Travel Awards, described by the Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of the global travel and tourism industry, serves to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel, tourism and hospitality industry. 180,000 industry professionals from around the world participated in the voting process over the past four months and Thanda was nominated alongside some of the most respected names in the travel industry for the most sought-after prizes in the tourism world.
