The 14 000 hectare of pristine African wilderness which is home to the Thornybush Private Nature Reserve is in the Northern part of the Sabi Sand and forms part of the Greater Kruger Park.


Thornybush enjoys some of the best game viewing on offer with spectacular ‘Big 5’ sightings plus the elusive cheetah and wild dog make this a ‘Super Seven’ destination.



The four suites at Thornybush Waterbuck Lodge have stunning views of the bushveld and consist of a king size bed, air-conditioning, mini bar, electronic safe, indoor bath and shower and outdoor shower.



The facilities at the main lodge include a swimming pool and sun lounger area, a well-stocked library and traditional boma area for dining under the stars.


The Lodge also boasts an active water hole so you can sit back with a cool drink in hand and watch the wildlife just pass by.



Twice daily game drive in open Land Cruisers with highly professional rangers and Shangaan trackers, both of which enjoy sharing their knowledge and experiences of the African bush.


After a scrumptious breakfast you are welcome to join your ranger on an insightful bush walk where he will take you on a journey of discovery explaining in greater detail the medical uses of various plants and tree along the importance of the smaller creatures, like the dung beetles, termites and even the mosquitoes have to the ecosystem.  You will go away with a much greater respect for these tiny creatures that share our planet.
