The game farm and hunting lodge is perfectly positioned in a malaria-free zone of Southern Africa. Thorndale Safari is in the heart of the Eastern Cape, 100 km north of Port Elizabeth. Thorndale Safari’s game lodge has been awarded a five-star accommodation rating from the South African Tourism Grading Council. It is strategically positioned atop a hillside overlooking its 5000 hectares of bushveld, accompanied by a perfect African sunset. The hunting lodge’s luxury accommodation is a truly magnificent way to experience the wild sights and sounds of Africa. We have created a balance between five star comforts and a unique African experience. We are life members of Safari Club International, Professional Hunters Association of South Africa and Wildlife Ranchers South Africa.
