The 14,000-hectare Thornybush nature reserve is private, ensuring our guests enjoy intimate, uncrowded encounters with the wildlife as well as extended time on sightings. The game density is exceptional and we can take you as close to the action as possible. Once darkness falls, you’ll be treated to thrilling spotlight-lit night drives in search of rare nocturnal animals and big cats on the move.
HOME TO THE BIG FIVE
An abundance of perennial rivers, good groundwater levels and a range of vegetation means a diversity of plains game is drawn to Thornybush, which, in turn, attracts predators. From trumpeting elephant herds along river beds, to the roar of a lion pride echoing through our camps to the thrill of a close encounter with a stealthy leopard, Thornybush is the ideal place to see the icons of the African bushveld.
There’s no doubt that a safari setting is one of the most romantic locations in which to get married. Under the canopies of acacia trees or nestled in a dry riverbed, surrounded by multihued blooms, golden grasses, endless horizons and moody cloud cover will capture your perfect day in the most memorable way.
