Thornybush Game Lodge

Adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park, within the famous Thornybush Nature Reserve is the Collection’s largest operation, Thornybush Game Lodge. Whilst the size of the Lodge attracts special gatherings, the configuration of the 20 self-contained luxury suites provides privacy and solitude for couples and smaller groups. A sumptuous breakfast is served in the morning either back at the camp or in the riverbed or bush. Savour a gourmet 3 course dinner, either in the boma, bush or lodge - guests can socialize with a cognac, single malt or cigar around the campfire or lounge before returning to bed for another day's adventure. Enjoy a unique safari experience as you cruise in open Land Rovers, viewing the “Big Five”, as well as different species of reptiles, birds, fish and amphibians. Take a moment to browse in the intimate library or simply relax at the pool with your favourite cocktail as you bask in Africa’s glorious sunshine. The Amani Spa offers a wide variety of spa treatments for guests wishing to indulge in a rejuvenating spa experience.
