overview

With 11 500ha of African wilderness to explore, n'Kaya Lodge's location in the game-rich Thornybush Private Game Reserve is ideal for discerning nature enthusiasts. Situated adjacent to the Kruger National Park but within an exclusive, sole-use reserve, n'Khaya offers morning, afternoon and evening game drives in open 4x4 vehicles with the camp's highly-trained and experienced rangers and trackers.

It's Big 5 country and a place where other classic African animals such as zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, hippo and hyena are commonly seen. Head out for a guided walking safari with one of the camp's rangers and experience the wilderness up close, and bring your binoculars - this is a bird watcher's paradise.

Facilities

Stylishly decorated in warm earthy tones and indigenous wood, n'Kaya Camp blends luxury with a rustic atmosphere. Boasting views over its own waterhole, the main lodge is the ideal place to relax and even enjoy some easy game viewing and bird watching.

The swimming pool offers a welcome escape from the hot African sun while at the end of the day geusts tend to gravitate around the enormous fireplace - the focal point of the lounge. Here you can relax by the campfire, swop stories, listen to the sounds of an African night and keep an eye out for animals at the floodlit waterhole. N'Kaya Lodge also offers internet connectivity.

Brunch is served on the north-facing veranda, a venue flooded with early-morning sunshine and overlooking a waterhole - indeed, you may find yourself lingering over a second cup of coffee while watching wildlife drinking below you.

You can also enjoy a hearty bush dinner at the open boma where you can relax by the campfire with a glass of wine selected from the lodge's wine cellar.

Traveller Reviews

  • We loved the safari & N'kaya Lodge

    Heather Cayman, June 2013
  • I cannot say enough good things about N'Kaya lodge in Thornybush. I'm so happy that we went with one of the smaller lodges for our stay, and this lodge in particular. We were given a lot of personalized attention. Just a wonderful experience. We will definitely be going on more safari trips to Africa in the future!

"nKaya is a very sweet homestead style lodge with the rooms all facing in towards the pool and main lodge. It would be perfectly suitable for a large group or family."
