Thornybush Waterside Lodge, Kruger

Adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park and set on the banks of a tranquil lake encompassed with breath-taking views of the African bushveld, Thornybush Waterside Lodge affords instant relaxation.

The lodges offer 20 comfortably appointed air-conditioned Thatched Suites blend into the natural habitat;  also are located along pathways surrounded by an abundance of trees and manicured gardens.

Within the Thornybush Nature Reserve, lies a vast African Wilderness home to Africa’s big game, including the ‘Big Five’,  as well as many species of mammals and birds.  Each of the 8 luxury tents, boasts an outdoor bath, as well as shower, on a private deck overlooking the magnificent bushveld.

Thornybush Waterside Lodge offers unique exclusive Safari experiences in both open Land Cruiser, and on foot. The private reserve is home to an abundance of species: 147 mammals including the “Big Five”, 114 reptiles, 507 birds, 49 fish, 34 amphibians and 336 trees.

A typical day, starts as dawn breaks over the African bushveld.  After your early morning wake up call, coffee, tea & rusks are served on the main deck overlooking the dam.  Shortly after, you depart in your open Land Cruiser with your experienced Rangers and Trackers, who will share their extensive knowledge of the bush with you.

Our Shangaan trackers will enthral you with their explanations of the medicinal and other uses of the numerous plants and trees along with tales of traditional folklore.  The rest of the day is spent at the discretion of the guest, with a delicious lunch being served around 1.30pm.

The afternoon game drive is preceded by high tea and extends into the evening to view seldom seen nocturnal species by spotlight.  Upon returning for dinner, either in the boma, bush or lodge – guests can socialise with a cognac or single malt around the campfire or lounge before retiring to bed.
