This unique river lodge boasts an excellent location for glampers to bore into the essence of Africa and experience an authentic safari getaway. Set in the heart of the Lowveld savannah and within the greater Kruger National Park, Thornybush Private Nature Reserve captures the spirit of Africa and provides a unique opportunity for glampers to reconnect with the great outdoors.

The lodge offers daily safaris that tell a gripping story and provide rare game-viewing experiences. The Reserve is home to over 147 species of mammals and about 517 bird species and acts as an eco-tourism reserve, making conservation its main priority.

Intrepid glampers will love the bush walks on offer, where guides provide an insightful trek through the African wilderness and where there is ample opportunity to spot the Big Five, namely lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and Cape buffalos. Furthermore, the iconic cheetahs are regularly spotted as well as Painted Wild dogs which are listed as threatened. Additionally, glampers can experience the unsurpassed beauty of the wild from up high with scenic helicopter tours and hot air balloon rides.

There are also fantastic boat cruises that lead through the third largest canyon in the world right to the rare living Kadishi Tufa waterfall and the Three Rondavels.
