I've had a great 3-day safari stay at the Thornhill Safari Lodge! Great service, good food and clean rooms. The organized activities were wonderful: private game drive and Kruger-safari! The guides and drivers that this lodge works with are really great! Great place to stay!

Thanks, Leanne and team, for above and beyond service in arranging safaris, and a very special birthday dinner for one of our group. Nothing was too much trouble, and I learned so much about the SA natural environment from your very knowledgeable staff. Truly professional.
