Reviewed October 14, 2012

Did 2 game drives through the reserve both with differant trackers and rangers, the ability to get so close to the wildlife was amazing. We had unforgettable encounters with a herd of elephants and a Rhino with baby as well as seeing much more including Lions, zebra , Girrafe etc

Reviewed September 27, 2012

We have been to the Thornybush several times during our SA holidays and it never ceases to amaze us. If you want a really good and up close wildlife experience go and visit the Thornybush!

“Very good game drives.”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

If you have limited time and you wish to join a game drive in a private game reserve, this is the place. I 've been there quite a few times and was never disappointed about animals sightings.

“Great opportunity to see Big 5”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

The driver and tracker did their utmost to track the animals for us.Was a bit confused that they drove through thick bush in order to find the animals, knocking down trees in the rush.
