had the pleasure of spending 4 nights at Thornybush from 13-17 June with m 22 year old Son and I have to say I cant find anything negative to say about the place. from the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty, the game drives with Lindi and KG (everyone of them) were fantastic and both of them were happy to answer any questions we had, we saw all that we wanted to see and more. the food was outstanding and the room was really nice. thank you to all at Thornybush for making this a truly amazing holiday
Wonderful return to the bush!
From the first enquiry to the final good bye I was given the most wonderful treatment by everyone! The staff at the lodge and the guide and tracker were all excellent, attentive to every need and so friendly! Thank you everyone - this is a must visit!
Unforgettable in every way
Thornybush is a true gem. Our family of five was spoiled from the min we arrived to the second we left. This is a must-do family experience. Our guide, Lindi, and tracker, KG were an exceptional team, we totally lucked out with fabulous sightings, regularly landing up right in the middle of the action. We saw everything and more, and we were all very impressed with the local wildlife knowledge of Lindi and KG. The lodge went out of their way to cater to our children, even offering a baking experience and special kids bug walk. We never once felt like they were an imposition as the team were so inclusive. KG made treasured wooden walking sticks for our boys, much to their delight. Laura, Anton and Precious were also great, helping us with our tour booking. The whole team are fabulous and there is a great vibe at the lodge. Also important to mention, food was out of this world good! There are so many lodges to choose from, but don’t hesitate to book thornybush game lodge. It’s truly wonderful in every way!
Spectacular In Every Way
Simply the best. Our three nights at Thornybush were magical in every way – far exceeding our expectations. Daniel and John, our guide and tracker, were simply the best. Following tracks and sounds miles off to show us incredible things like a leopard and hyena battle over an impala, a 15 lion kudu feast, and baby lion cubs answering a mothers call. A dream come true. The lodge staff was phenomenal and worked to accommodate my gluten allergy preparing endless muffins, breads and cookies that I could eat! It was pure luxury, and the food exceptional. This was one of the most profound experiences of my life. Pure magic. We wouldn't have traded a second of it. Thornybush is a not to be missed experience and will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
I just returned from 3 wonderful days at Thornybush. It was hands down the best vacation I have ever taken. Greg and Mandla, our guide and tracker, were excellent and made the daily game drives a joy. They were determined that we see all the big 5, which we did, and they also entertained with jokes and stories during the breakfast and sundowner stops. Precious and all the lodge staff were excellent and our every need was met. I also had a massage and it was just what I needed after bouncing around in the jeep. Room 6, was perfect; not too far from dining area and right next to a watering hole where we saw elephants taking a drink.
