Thornybush Waterside Lodge Location Map

Adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park in the Thornybush Game Reserve, 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 private 14,500 hectare reserve is home to an abundance of species including the 'Big Five' - lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard. The reserve is predominantly open savannah and with a near perfect year round climate, it is the ideal African safari holiday destination.

Highly skilled rangers and trackers ensure exciting game viewing opportunities during dawn and dusk safaris, whilst bushwalks are for the more adventurous. 

In between game activities, guests are invited to relax and take in the African surrounds on the main deck area overlooking the lake, the swimming pool or alternatively retreat to the comfort of your suite.

The lodge has been designed to blend into the natural habitat located along pathways surrounded by an abundance of trees and manicured gardens.

The 20 comfortably appointed air-conditioned thatched suites are located along pathways surrounded by an abundance of trees and manicured gardens. Each suite has an en-suite bathroom and a private deck area.
