Major deals and updates make for an exciting year ahead!

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new year and we're feeling good!
An exciting year for Thornybush as we bring in the new year with a refreshed perspective on luxury Kruger safari travel. We're wildly grateful for all the support we received in the previous year, and we only hope to welcome more bucket-list travellers and safari enthusiasts to our world-class destinations.

Have you peeped at our new website? Online bookings are so much easier, and all the information you need is more accessible. The news of our newly refurbished Thornybush Game Lodge is the talk of the town, and our recent guests are loving the 5-star upgrade!


In 2023, we look forward to the new build of Kamara House, the Simbambili Game Lodge refurbishment with the solar power plant installation, and the new gymnasium and wellness centre at Game Lodge. The journey of sustainability is evident in our lodges in the Thornybush Nature Reserve, and this year, we're excited to go greener in the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve. Your stay with us is directly impacting the lives of our neighbouring communities, and making an effective contribution to our conservation efforts.

This year, make sure to keep updated with our safari deals, and ongoing SA Residents Rate curated to suit all safari fanatics! We hope that you all get the opportunity to get close to nature and unlock your dream safari with us.
