We know that a trip to the African bush is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many, and often it’s a special holiday for partners. The nature of our lodges lend themselves perfectly to these romantic occasions, whether it’s a private candlelit dinner or simply the magic of being immersed in the bush. We take care of the small things to ensure you can spend quality time together and enjoy your intimate moments to the utmost.
Perfect for couples
Almost all of our lodges offer honeymoon suites for added romance, whether for newlyweds or couples on anniversary trips or other special celebrations. The suites come with larger rooms, private decks with plunge pools, outside showers and stunning views of the bush and passing animals.
Whether it’s beside a fire in a riverbed, lanterns in a boma or candles on your own deck, dinners at Thornybush can be lavishly romantic affairs. They offer a quiet moment with your partner to look back on the excitement of the day while our excellent food and wine makes these special dinners even more memorable.
There’s very little in this world that can compare to the beauty of an African sunset. That’s why we ensure that on every evening game drive we stop to have sundowners and take it all in. It’s one of the iconic African experiences that’s made even more enjoyable and memorable in the arms of a loved one.
A wonderful accompaniment to a romantic holiday, our spa treatments will put you at ease and make you feel even more relaxed and pampered. Every treatment is customised to the individual with therapies aiming to bring balance to your well-being and imbue your days with a lightness of spirit.
