Since our inception, Thornybush has played host to special celebrations of multi-generational family safari holidays. It’s amazing to see how children experience the bush and view the wildlife, and just as exciting to experience it all through the eyes of a parent, grandparent or doting aunt or uncle. Thornybush Game Lodge is ideal for a safari with kids and family safaris, catering for all generations. We pride ourselves with specific family-orientated services to ensure everyone has a special stay.
Quality time with the Family
A safari is the ideal break from routine for all members of the family; phones can be put down, family naps come at ease and heads turned up to the beauty of the wildlife and landscape. Sharing this unique experience is the perfect way to bring families together and experience a safari with kids that create lasting memories – whether it’s on the game drives, around the dinner table or around a fire, book your family friendly safari holidays with us.
A safari with kids has never been easier. We love taking your kids on tailored walks with our skilled rangers, who will point out the insects and plants and keep them engaged in what makes this experience so special. We’ll invite them to bake and create bush art so your kids can use natural elements like leaves and seeds in their creations to bring them closer to nature. We aim to delight their senses by creating something memorable as a keepsake, and forging safari family holiday memories that last a lifetime.
Private family holidays
At many of our safari lodges in the Sabi Sands & Thornybush game reserves in the Kruger Park, we have larger suites to cater for groups and families perfectly equipped for your family safari holidays. These can be interleading rooms or standalone villas where private family dinners and swimming pools add another element to the experience.
Private guides and chefs
Our family villas also offer the services of a private chef, guide and tracker. The chef is at your exclusive use throughout your stay, allowing you to also choose meal locations and menus according to your preferences. Having exclusive use of a guide and tracker, grants you the freedom to go on game drives when and where you please.
