The Thornybush Collection of Lodges consists of twelve luxury lodges, eleven of which are located in the Thornybush Private Nature Reserve and one in the northern part of Sabi Sands. Situated within 14 000 hectares of pristine wilderness in the Thornybush Nature Reserve, the Thornybush Collection is a well-known destination for local and international visitors alike. The Reserve recently dropped its eastern boundary fence and is now open to the greater Kruger National Park. The Collection has earned its reputation as one of the country’s finest bush experiences. This haven, which is just over 5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg, has scooped numerous world firsts, both for conservation and hospitality. Thornybush has evolved over the years into a visitor’s paradise. The collection offers something for everyone. Bush lovers can lose themselves, not only in the big five, but in the remarkable fauna and flora as well. Those looking for something a little less adventurous can relax in the luxurious surrounds, enjoying delicious cuisine and pampering themselves at one of the spas. Whatever your preference, you never leave Thornybush the same as when you arrived.
