LOCAL AREA

Bird Watching
While most of the Estate is classified as Coastal Indigenous Forest, the close proximity of Grassland, Acacia thicket and the De Stades River Wetland, creates an ideal eco-diversity for bird watching. Three hundred and fifty-two species have been listed in the area, including many elusive species such as the Narina Trogon, African Rail, Grey Sunbird and the often heard Buff-Spotted, Red-Chested and Striped Flufftails. You are always assured of seeing the Knysna Loerie (Turaco) our signature bird, with its magnificent crimson and green plumage. On a good morning guests have seen all 5 of our listed kingfishers within the estate, which in its own has been a highlight for some.
Thunzi Bush Lodge offers customised birding tours with a qualified bird guide, enabling you to fully experience the rich abundance of birdlife in the region.
Gourmet Picnics
Enjoy an afternoon out in the country where you will be surrounded by indigenous forest and bird song. Bask in the afternoon sun on a blanket and soft cushions with your picnic laid out before you...napkins, cutlery, crockery, glasses and of course a gourmet delight when it comes to the food!
BOOKINGS ESSENTIAL. Picnics offered Tuesday to Sunday from 12 pm. R175.00 per person (excludes alcohol) Alcohol and cold drinks to be bought from Thunzi Bush Lodge.
Forest and Beach Walks
A number of walks, ranging from easy strolling to more strenuous expeditions, are within the vicinity of the lodge. Walking trails provide access to the dense indigenous coastal forest, while close proximity to Maitland Beach provides the opportunity to trace the Eastern Cape shoreline on pristine sandy beaches.
Attractions close to Thunzi
While it is easy to immerse yourself entirely in the natural beauty of Thunzi Bush Lodge, it is amazing to know that within a 10 minute drive, you have access to many other game and wildlife attractions, modern shopping malls, museums, local tours and many other first world attractions.
