Royal Natal National Park
Accommodation in the Park
Accommodation Thendele hutted camp is situated in one of the most picturesque settings in the country with a view of the world famous amphitheatre from every chalet. The camp nestles below the 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.
The camp consists of 26 self-contained chalets which accommodate either two or four people each. There are also two delightful 6 bed cottages and a luxurious lodge with 3 en-suite bedrooms and other facilities in keeping with 5 star accommodation in its own special space well away from the main camp. The cottage and the lodge each have their own cook for visitors convenience. The camp shop has a wide range of curios and sells basic groceries and supplies.
Royal Natal has two popular camping grounds. Mahai that can accommodate up to 400 people and the more secluded Rugged Glen on the eastern side of the reserve.
