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 (100 Acres) private valley overlooking the pristine and lush De Stadens river wetland. Conveniently situated en-route to Cape Town only 25km from the friendly City of Port Elizabeth and 2km from the untouched Maitland Beach perfectly positions Thunzi as a charming natural destination to complete a scenic Garden Route adventure. This unforgettable property reflects the magic of Africa ensuring supreme relaxation, superior accommodation, friendly hospitality, refined cuisine and an endless source of interesting activities.

“Just when you think you have seen the best and experienced the ultimate you arrive at this paradise.” Fred Orban, Boggomsbaai, South Africa
