    We had an amazing time at Thonga. The food was amazing and the staff so friendly and helpful. It was wonderful to see humpback whales and turtles while on the ocean experience. I would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone who loves to be surrounded by nature on the most magnificent beach.


    My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Lodge on our South African honeymoon. The beach was pristine and so relaxing. The resort has amazing views of the Indian Ocean, and the individual beach lodges provide privacy and quiet. The meals were top notch, and the daily sundowner cocktails were such a treat. This was the perfect place to soak in the sun and sand while in South Africa.
