Thendele hutted camp accommodation is situated in one of the most picturesque settings in the country with the best possible view of the world famous Amphitheater Northern Drakensberg mountains from every self catering chalet. If you are wanting to hike and explore the mountains Thendele Camp is the perfect accommodation option for you as there are many walks that leave from the camp itself with no driving needed. Otherwise you can still enjoy the most stunning view right from your own private chalet.
Thendele Camp is situated in the Royal Natal National Park. There are Upper Camp and Lower Camp 2 and 4 sleeper chalets, all fully equipped for self catering with braai facilities. There are TV’s in the units with selected DSTV channels. The units are serviced daily and all linen is provided.
The camp nestles below the brooding sandstone cliffs of Dooley among yellowwood forests and protea savannah where visitors can often hear the rumble of boulders in the Thukela river below after a fierce summer thunderstorm.
This beautiful accommodation venue has the distinction of being the closest of the KZN Wildlife Berg camps to the main Drakensberg escarpment.
Dominated by the Amphitheater which changes mood with weather and season, often covered in snow in winter or with up to eighteen waterfalls cascading down the vertical cliffs after a storm, Thendele is a very special place to visit and is KZN Wildlife’s most popular camp.
Home to the Bearded Vulture(Lammergeyer) and Black Eagle who often disport themselves for visitors in the thermals that rise above the Mont aux Sources plateau, the surrounding valleys and ridges offer superb walks through an ever changing landscape with many upland birds and flowers
The camp shop has a wide range of curios and sells basic groceries and supplies for visitors convenience
Royal Natal has two popular camping grounds, Mahai Campsite and Rugged Glen Campsite which are served by the main Reception Centre which includes a large well stocked curio shop which also sells provisions and alcoholic beverages.
