Thornybush Game Reserve
Offering deluxe accommodation, a large range of children’s activities, frequent Big Five sightings and plentiful prey grazing the pristine bush and savannah, Thornybush Game Reserve, has everything you need to create an unforgettable safari experience.
The reserve lies in the rolling Lowveld savannah, adjacent to Kruger National Park. It is home to the Big Five and many other wildlife species, as well as giraffe, hippo, hyena, cheetah a wide variety of antelope species and some incredible birdlife. The Thornybush Game Reserve shares an unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, allowing game to roam freely between the two areas, to offer some of the best unspoilt game viewing in the Kruger. Guests can experience the game of the Kruger, in the privacy of a reserve where self-drive isn’t an option.
In our experience, Thornybush is a great option for families. With some of the properties on the reserve tailored more towards families, with activities designed to entertain the children, as well as teaching them about the wildlife and ecosystem of the reserve. Guests can enjoy both dawn and dusk safaris in open vehicles with fully qualified rangers and trackers, while bush walks are also on offer for the more adventurous.
