If you are looking for an amazing safari experience, then this is the place! We arrived, and were greeted at the doors, and led into a sanctuary. The outdoor pool with waterfall and bar are relaxing and breathtaking. All the staff were amazing, and so helpful. We were shown to a beautiful tented lodge that was cleaned 2x per day with turn down service.
As it was my husbands and I's Honeymoon we received Champagne and a wonderful surprise from the hotel! The food and drinks at the lodge were superb and we even had light refreshments on our game drive's.
The game in Thorneybush was plentiful! We saw all the Big 5 plus a Cheetah (which is rare for Kruger Park). Our tracker and Ranger were so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable - They made our safari experience!
I cannot say enough good things about this lodge! If you are looking for a luxury lodge, at a good price, with plenty of game drives and wild life. Stay here!!!
