Luxury Safari Lodges in the Thornybush Game Reserve
About Thornybush Game Reserve
Adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park lies 10 000 hectares of pristine African bushveld, which is the ‘Thornybush Game Reserve‘. With an abundance of bird and mammal species including the ‘Big 5’, it is also home to a collection of exclusive private game lodges.
Diverse accommodation caters for most guest’s needs from rustic understated comfort to luxury of the finest order. All lodges have sparkling swimming pools and offer exciting dawn and dusk safaris from open landrovers with fully qualified rangers and trackers, and bush walks for the more adventurous.
A safari to the Thornybush Game Reserve is unique in that we go off-road to track and find the animals and night safaris using a spotlight are also permitted. The safari vehicles used are open 4×4 vehicles which the animals have become accustomed to thus allowing us to get right up close to the wildlife. Daily walking safaris with an armed ranger is a highlight for one wanting to discover the smaller secrets of the bush veld. Sundowners are enjoyed in the bush whilst on safari and the days end with a mouth watering gourmet dinner in an open-air “Boma” around a huge glowing log-fire.
