Thornybush Game Lodge

Here, unrivalled big game viewing is complemented by elegant accommodation and sublime cuisine. Thornybush Game Reserve's exclusive private Thornybush Game Lodge provides accommodation, consisting of stylish air-conditioned suites, with extensive living areas overlooking the seasonal Monwana River. There are 18 en suite, suites, each of which has indoor and outdoor showers, and a private deck – from which guests can view the River. Bathrooms boast large glass windows, also offering unique game viewing in and around the river bed. In addition, there are two family suites, with lounge area, and sleeper couch. These suites also boast a viewing deck, and private plunge pool.

Game drives and walks are accompanied by highly trained and experienced rangers and trackers, ensuring that your bush experience is truly memorable. A typical day includes an early morning up-close game drive followed by breakfast either back at the Main lodge or in the riverbed or bush. The rest of the day is spent at the discretion of the guest and may include additional bush walks with your ranger and tracker, browsing in the intimate library; being pampered at the exclusive Spa or simply relaxing at the pool.

Walks allow guests a better chance to see some of the smaller creatures of the bush as well as an opportunity to learn more about the flora and fauna of the region and to have a chance to follow tracks in more detail.

Thornybush Private Game Lodge offers unique exclusive Safari experiences in both open Land Rovers, and on foot. The private reserve is home to an abundance of species: 147 mammals including the "Big Five", 114 reptiles, 507 birds, 49 fish, 34 amphibians and 336 trees. The reserve is predominantly open savannah and with a near perfect year round climate, it is the ideal African safari holiday destination.
