Thornybush captured our souls!
Wow wow wow!! Our 2 night family stay [our 2 daughters, aged 18 and 20, and us], despite Cycone Eloise hovering near us, was the most incredible and beautiful adventure we have had in a long time! Pure and blissful luxury!! We were spoilt rotten! Started with a private dining experience in the library, included 4 mind-blowing game drives, relaxing spa treatments, luxury accommodation with our own balcony right on the river, and the most beautiful meals. Fabulous and attentitive staff, especially SId and Orlando, our game ranger and tracker, who were extremely knowledgable, and the softly spoken and delightful Shepard, our "butler". WE WILL go back there again - simply incredible!
Slice of Serenity- Best 21st Getaway!
We spent 4 nights and 5 days at Thornybush Game Lodge. The staff at the lodge were so welcoming and tended to our every need. Every game drive felt like an adventure. Wondering what we would see next kept us on our toes (and it kept us waking up at 5am). The sightings were absolutely spectacular. Our ranger and tracker, Kel and Ismael, were extremely knowledgeable, and we felt as though we took so much home with us from the bush. We definitely have memories to last a lifetime. Our room was so beautiful and modern. It provided everything we needed. Our favorite was the outside shower, which allowed us to feel truly immersed within nature. The food at the lodge was divine. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Definitely five-star! All I wanted was to spend my 21st birthday in the bush- and Thornybush made my experience an unforgettable one! I cannot wait to go back.
Literally one word about Seseka Tented Camp at Thornybush - Perfect!
Spending 2 nights and 3 days at Seseka was a treat like no other. From the personal attention by every staff member, the most incredible ranger and tracker, nothing was too much. Sheer luxury, incredible meals, and the most amazing game viewing. Thank you to all involved for a magical and unbelievable stay.
World class experience
We stayed at Thornybush Main Lodge and had a world class experience from start to finish. The game viewing was incredible and the guiding team of Sydonea and Orlando made every drive special with their knowledge. From sightings of ‘the big 5’ to the smaller animals and birds, we were continually learning about the bush. The food was superb and over our six day stay we experienced really well thought out, five star quality menus (thanks Solly!). We were assigned a butler, Patrick, who took good care of us over mealtimes and was quickly well tuned into each of our individual preferences. The service was of a very high standard in general and the staff even arranged short, special activities for our young child in between mealtimes and drives (thanks especially to Meryl!). The management were attentive to our needs and clearly know how to deliver a world class experience (thanks Anet and Mel). Cannot wait to go back.
Thornybush game lodge
Very relaxed and comfortable, wonderful wildlife sightings, enjoyed every minute of our two night stay at this lodge, we had family members with children, and they made sure they were entertained and so where we.
