Overlooking the Monwana River, Thornybush River Lodge is an intimate and elegant safari lodge located in the game-rich Thornybush Private Reserve adjacent to Kruger National Park.
Luxury accommodations at the lodge consist of only four thatched-roof suites including the magnificent two-bedroom Royal Suite. Each spacious suite embodies an African-chic style and feature comfy beds romantically draped in mosquito netting and a cozy lounge. The beautiful en suite bathrooms come with floor to ceiling glass doors opening up the space to the outside as guests unwind in a deep soaking bath or use the marvelous outdoor shower. In addition, every suite enjoys a private elevated deck with a refreshing plunge pool and panoramic views of the bush. Additional amenities include a bar fridge freezer, coffee station, and air-conditioning.
The lodge is situated in Thornybush Nature Reserve and is adjacent to world-famous Kruger National Park set against the majestic backdrop of the Northern Drakensberg Mountains. Stretching across nearly 25,000 acres of land, Thornybush Game Reserve is located in the eastern Lowveld area. The reserve is home to the Big Five as well as giraffes, antelope, and cheetahs. A favorite spot for many wildlife documentaries, it is home to the first recorded white wildebeest born in the wild. Moreover, the reserve is also one of the first to start rhino-horn treatments to deter poachers.
