Trip of a Lifetime

I had the most wonderful time in South Africa. I doubt it would have been as wonderful if it was not for your fabulous house, the setting, and of course, Kelvin and Jason. Both Kelvin and Jason were without a doubt a huge reason why we enjoyed ourselves and had no worries. Kelvin helped everything fall into place and assisted in every possible way whatever we needed. Nothing was too much trouble. Jason was right there with him and they were quite a team. Jason made wonderful food for each meal and presented it beautifully. His cooking is his art.

Going to Africa has always been first on my list of places to go, mainly to go on a safari. But it was so much more than that. South Africa is beautiful and the people we met were wonderful. Our guides Isabelle and Gert again could not do enough for us. We were able to get such a wonderful feel for South Africa.

Going to the school was a beautiful experience. The kids put on such an amazing show of gratitude. Never did I think that I would be able to combine a trip like this with also helping children. I have been to an Operation Smile trip in the past so I do understand the need of the world’s children. Helping them helps us. It’s a win/win. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your life mission in such a beautiful way.
People told me “it’s a trip of a lifetime” and it was.


Treated Us Like Royalty

I can not begin to express what a fantastic vacation and experience I had here at Thulani. Your home is so beautiful! Jason and Kelvin are outstanding and treated us like royalty. The safaris were great. Our trip to to the school was such an inspiring experience. Thank you again for all the extras we had.


Trip of a Lifetime

I can’t say enough about this fabulous trip of a lifetime. First of all, the venue is absolutely gorgeous. Chef Jason and Kelvin treated us like royalty. The food was amazing. We were blessed to see the big five on our safaris. I will highly recommend Thulani to all my friends back home in Houston, TX.

Incomparable Experience

Mike and I have truly loved every second we have been in your beautiful home! Our entire experience can not compare to anything we have ever done. We are so blessed to have been part of the whole experience with A Spring of Hope! The children were so grateful and we were so humbled by the entire event. It really puts life in perspective when you do not have access to water. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your vision! Also – Jason and Kelvin completed the experience. They were above outstanding – they went above and beyond! We love them both so much! Mike and I can’t wait to share our Africa experience with everyone!

Luxury in Nature!!

Upon arrival, a family of giraffes was waiting to greet us in the driveway!! What a welcome! We simply could not believe the degree of luxury and outrageous nature we were being treated to at Thulani! The home is exquisite, the sunset view over the mountains and landscape is awe-inspiring and the feeling of complete privacy and immersion into nature was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Having the wonderful house manager always available was such a comfort and since we arrived near sunset, he insisted we hop right on the open-aired game scouting truck to get the most of the twilight animal viewing. BAM…our first night out – LIONS at a watering hole!!!! Especially appreciated was the time the home owner and manager took to introduce us to some local friends and to show us some great work being done to dig “boreholes” (wells) for local schools in communities that so need this essential, basic commodity for health. An unforgettable experience filled with every luxury imaginable in this gorgeous, special home!

Thulani Is Heaven!

Such a magnificent home with every comfort. More importantly, the house managers were spot on with their professionalism and charm. We wanted for nothing, and were captivated by all options for sightseeing, dining, safaris, hanging out. Perfection.

To the Communities

Two weeks at Thulani felt like home. At 6am outside with a good coffee and some wild animals walking by. The rooms are just perfect and Africa gets under your skin. We chose to meet people instead of wildlife, so into the communities we went… The Thulani staff is great and will help you to find the beatiful spots were the locals go. It might be a lot of money but if you make time to visit the projects of ASOH you will notice that this is well spend and travel home as a rich person with a grateful smile on your face. Afica, it’s what we learn from it that counts!

South Africa Get-Away

We spent one week at Thulani with our sons (17 & 26). Spent the week traveling all around the area with the beautiful home as our base. The two staff persons made sure we had all we needed for all occasions. Loved our stay.

Best Vacation Ever

I have to say that it was better then I ever expected. You know when the brochures look great and when you get there it is not like it. Well that is not true . The help and all the guest were just wonderful and the food was outstanding. The rooms were so beautiful and so was the view. I also want to say the the drives were just as wonderful as I could have imagined. And I want to thank Garth for making our stay the best for us. I can not say enough about this trip. I hope to return because I love Africa , all the people and especially all the beautiful animals. It was a trip of a life time. Thank you all again.
