Thornybush Game Lodge Facilities
Although Thornybush is one of South Africa`s oldest game lodges, it changed hands in 1990 and has since then been extensively and lovingly refurbished. For the quality and style of its accommodation, it may be a more economical option than its luxurious sister lodges in the Timbavati area: Ngala, Tanda Tula and Motswari. The eighteen tastefully furnished thatched chalets and rondavels (with bathroom en suite) are set under a rich canopy of indigenous trees. There are also two family suites with their own private plunge pools. A cosy bar, dining room and spacious lounge lead on to a patio and swimming pool. Depending on the weather, dinner may be served along a crackling log fire in the boma nearby. Unique incentive options including the "Thornybush Challenge" are highly recommended and a fully equipped conference facility (60 delegates) is also available.

Thornybush Game Lodge Additional Information
Morning and evening 4x4 safaris and bush walks form the core of the daily activities at Thornybush. Specialised requests and private guide options can be tailored to suite your specific needs. Or spoil yourself and have a treatment at the Thornybush Spa, (newly renovated August 2008).
