  3. Hi, was at Thanda for Graeme and Julie’s wedding on the 13/04. Derek and I were totally blown away by the whole Thanda experience. Everything was fantastic the staff were great they couldn’t have done enough for us. The accommodation was out of this world and as you know everything went well.
    Can I also say that your photography is fantastic. I had followed your photographs on Facebook a few weeks before we arrived in Thanda and I am still following your photography now we are home. Keep up the good work it must be an amazing place to work.
