Safari to Thornybush Private Game Reserve

Going on safari to Thornybush Game Reserve is something unforgettable and intimate. Teams of friendly staff at every private lodge don’t miss a thing and become instant companions during your safari vacation. Highly skilled game rangers and trackers take guests out to appreciate the wild landscape and learn about the wildlife in an area stretching some 14 000 ha across open grasslands loved by lions and leopards. 

Conservation management ensures a healthy population of rhinos, elephants, buffalo, giraffes and plains game plus all the tiny things in between that comprise the vital food webs in these habitats. Daily bush walks introduce visitors to animal tracking skills, birds, insects, herbal plants and the intense stillness.
