Game drives were very good we saw all Big 5 on our first game drive. Guides are very informative and friendly.

Absolutely amazing views! The bush here is so thick and green, which I really love. The rangers are on radio, which means you are almost guaranteed to see something great! We did several drives and had great views every time. And the spotter on the night drive was really impressed. Saw a cheetah mother teaching her young to hunt - first time ever and really privileged to have seen that!

Very good guide, we got to see both the white and black rhino and the sunset with the giraffes were amazing. They say you leave a piece of you in Africa when you leave, I have to come back and leave more!

We booked a morning game drive with tangala and had a fantastic time! We were the only two on our vehicle and our great guides went completely off track which was amazing - we spent about 40 mins with a lion and lioness right in the Bush which really was so surreal! We saw Ellie's, buffalo, wildebeest, lions, giraffe, rhino all in the short time we had!! Amazing!! We didn't want our drive to end and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for the big 5 - even if you have already found them in Kruger. We had and believe me it felt completely different!!

We have done quite a few game drives (safaris) at Thornybush Game Reserve and most of the time we saw the Big Five. Great rangers and trackers that do a good job.
