Thornybush Game Lodge

Kruger National Park, South Africa

Effortlessly luxurious, we think Thornybush Game Lodge is perfect for a special holiday, whether you’re celebrating an anniversary or a milestone birthday. Nestled in the private Thornybush Nature Reserve adjacent to Kruger National Park, this is the place to indulge.

Although lavish, the main area has a back-to-nature feel thanks to its rustic décor and open-air lounge area, fit with colourful furnishings and traditional African sculptures. We love the modern take on authentic African interiors, and the outdoor boma is perfect for a relaxing al fresco dinner under the stars.

There are 18 suites, all offering phenomenal views of the Monwana River from their private terrace and opulent floor-to-ceiling glass doors, as well as a spacious living area and chic decor. There are also two family suites, featuring a sleeper sofa that converts into a double bed, a larger private deck, and a plunge pool.

Elegant and romantic, there’s simply nothing better than relaxing on the extensive main deck and looking on at the incredible wildlife at the waterhole below.

Those between two and five years old are not permitted on game drives. Babysitting is available at an additional cost.
