Island activities and facilities.


We have island activities for guests who want to relax and for those who want fun in the sun. For our guests who wish to relax, there’s music, yoga, spa treatments and time out at our magnificent rim-flow pool. For our energetic guests, we’re geared for action. From scuba diving and snorkelling, big game fishing, exploring the ocean in our catamaran or cruiser to playing tennis and volleyball, working out in the gym, walking and jogging on the beach and exploring the Thanda luxury island. Enjoy our special Egret Walk and dance in the moonlight under African skies before returning to your Bandas bungalow or Villa.

Tennis and volleyball court.

In the early mornings, late afternoons or evenings (when it isn’t too hot) you might want to have a game of tennis or volleyball on our 16 x 35m artificial lawn court. It has white lines for tennis and yellow lines for volleyball. Constructed especially for your enjoyment on Thanda Island, it has night lights for those who would like to play after dark. We are fully equipped with rackets, balls and even partners and opponents if you need them. Alongside the tennis court is the gazebo where friends and family can cheer on the match while having tea or cocktails.

Villa Gym

We know that many of you enjoy your regular exercise and gym routine, and we have created your own private, air-conditioned Thanda Villa Gym for all types of training. We offer a wide range of equipment – from running and bicycle machines to weight training and boxing equipment. Irrespective of your fitness level, we have all sorts of options. The gym is large enough to accommodate groups who can exercise simultaneously, if you so choose.

Bird Walk.

An interesting activity is the Thanda Island Egret Walk, where you head through the bush behind the Villa and onto a white-sand trail to visit the white, grey and black Egrets that inhabit our private island. Thanda Island is an ideal home for them, with excellent fish, and they manage to hatch a great number of their delicate baby-blue eggs. At different times of the year you can watch them interacting with each other and with their young.
