Picture the scene – a rosy sky, the smell of fresh coffee, a slow drive through the dewy vegetation in search of lions. It’s a sensory explosion. Do it again at dusk – rosy skies, the smell of honey blossoms and wetlands, warm African evenings in a cacophony of insect sounds. These are the reasons for choosing Thornybush Game lodges when you visit South Africa.
Our top picks for accommodation in the Thornybush Game Reserve are these ‘big five’ Thornybush lodges based on value, service and our guests’ feedback over the years.
Thornybush boasts some of the top game lodges in the Kruger region and is one of the first game reserves in South Africa to invite community people to participate in projects based on ecotourism principles.
It all began way back in 1961 when the first permanent lodge was built. Later, this second oldest commercial lodge in South Africa was rebuilt in 2001. It was one way of showing people what a true wilderness is and how to conserve these vital green spaces. Now, tourists can choose to visit any of the 13 remarkably elegant bush lodges in the Thornybush Collection. Each one is designed to capture the beauty of the environment and to decrease human impacts on nature.
We love the choice of world class accommodation in their natural modern design, slick amenities, breath-taking settings and impeccable service that come as part of exhilarating packages to the Thornybush Private Game Reserve.
Top game lodges offer all-inclusive accommodation choices in tented suites, thatched chalets, timber cabins, enormous private villas or rustic bush camps. The choice is yours and we do the rest!
Remember that the focus is always on the safari, the wildlife, the game viewing and the breath-taking scenery around you. Visitors to South Africa are attracted to the soulful relaxation in an untouched paradise where animals survive naturally.
The best time to visit Thornybush Private Game Reserve is from May to September when things are dry and cooler, less humid and vegetation is thinner. This is the dry season and animals congregate around dwindling water sources. Skies are clear, days are sunny and warm, nights are crisp.
