Thornybush Game Lodge is situated in the Thornybush Private Game Reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park and overlooks the seasonal Monwana River. From honeymooners to families, Thornybush offers the perfect location for a classic South African luxury safari: soak up all the thrills of exploring Big 5 country before relaxing in style in the lodge's expansive living areas or on your private viewing deck. Daily game drives and guided bush walks give you the opportunity to spot the abundant wildlife found in the area - you will be heading out on morning and afternoon game drives with expert rangers and trackers.
Top of the must-see list are the big cats (lion and leopard); there are also plenty of antelope species as well as herds of elephant and buffalo, and the bird watching is excellent. Children are well catered for at Thornybush with specialised, tailored walks and activities, children's spa treatments and delicious meals are all part of the service. Experienced babysitters are available to look after the young ones if parents are after a bit of downtime.

Thornybush Community is a non-profit organisation with the objective of nurturing and uplifting the surrounding local communities adjacent to its protected areas. Located on the western border of the Greater Kruger National Park and on the boundary of the Northern Sabi Sand Nature Reserve, Thornybush Community initially focused its work on two villages, Uthla and a smaller neighbouring community, Dixie. In 2019, a new geographical area was identified in Acornhoek, and this has allowed for some exciting new initiatives and partnerships. Over the years, the focus areas have expanded, and Thornybush Community has become a contributor to the NPO sector and supports various community initiatives.
