Thornybush Game Reserve is ideally located on the western boundary of the Kruger National Park, with which is shares unfenced boundaries as a neighbour to Timbavati Private Nature Reserve. Nestled at the foot of the Drakensberg Mountains and within a few minutes drive from the Hoedspruit Eastgate Airport, Thornybush enjoys both scenic surroundings and convenient access. There are 11 exclusive safari lodges on the 14 000 hectares of pristine Bushveld, exclusively traversed by guests of the reserve, and each of the properties is designed to cater for specific interest groups.

Some of the lodges are ideal for families travelling with children, while others are geared towards honeymooners and romantic travellers. Thornybush is popular for famously beautiful safari weddings with a team of expert staff who are trained to tie celebrations together in style. Game viewing is phenomenal, food is delectable, and the reserve’s relationship with the local community is bound by uplifting and supportive projects.
