    Thornybush Game Reserve

    Thornybush Game Reserve is a private game reserve sharing unfenced borders with the Kruger National Park. Thornybush Game Reserve is 14 000 hectares in size and consists of open savannah woodland with patches of thicket and its superior Big 5 habitat boasts some of the best game viewing in South Africa. Here a full Big 5 sighting within the first 2 days of your safari is very likely. With limited vehicles at any one sighting, you can be assured of uncrowded safari sightings and great photographic opportunities.

    Thornybush Game Reserve houses a collection of high standard 4-star and 5-star safari lodges, which are known to be some of the best safari lodges in the Kruger National Park. Each lodge is unique in its own way and offers a variety of accommodation from glamorous 5-star tented suites to more relaxed family friendly options.  Passionate guides and trackers at Thornybush Game Reserve strive to connect the dots on each game drive, explaining the ecosystem and how the smallest of insects correlate to the largest mammals. This makes for an intriguing understanding of the wild and makes every sighting even more spectacular. Get up-close to nature during a guided bushwalk and take a night-time safari in search of rare nocturnal animals and big cats with a spotlight. Thornybush Game Reserve offers an abundance of exciting experiences and wildlife activities.

    Thornybush Game Reserve is located in the Limpopo Province of South Africa and is in close proximity to Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport. The easiest way to travel to Thornybush Game Reserve is to fly into Hoedspruit Airport followed by a 40 minute road transfer, alternatively it is a 6 hour drive from Johannesburg. Road transfers are pre-arranged.
