Thornybush Game Reserve
A well-known destination for local and international visitors Thornybush has earned its reputation as one of the country’s finest bush experiences. Situated within 14 000 hectares of pristine wilderness, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, the Thornybush Nature Reserve is a true escape from the madness of city life. This haven, which is just over 5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg has scooped numerous world firsts, both for conservation and hospitality.
Thornybush has evolved over the years into a visitor’s paradise, "our collection of Lodges offers something for everyone. Bush lovers can saturate themselves, not only in the big five, but also in the remarkable fauna and flora," while less than enthusiastic bush goers can recoup their sanity relaxing in the luxurious surrounds, enjoying delicious cuisine and pampering themselves at one of the spas. Whatever your preference you never leave Thornybush the same as when you arrived. Testimony to this are the numerous visitor comments, the message is clear once you’ve experienced Thornybush it changes you profoundly. Each Lodge has been carefully selected to provide a variety of differing experiences and designed to meet the varying pockets of discerning travellers.
