Our group of 7 ( ages 11-78) was at Thornybush Waterside for 3 nights in late December/ early January 2014. We loved our accomodations, the staff (especially Mr. T), the pool area, and our ranger and tracker. At first we had Malcolm and Herbert, and then since Herbert was promoted to ranger we had Hennie as our tracker. We loved the safaris and learned so much while having a ton of fun and laughs as well. We would definitely return to Thornybush Waterside. Our only regret is not having more days at the lodge! Our kids loved teatime before the afternoon safaris!
