We visited Thornhill Safari Lodge for our 30th wedding aniversary. What a unforgettable experiece!! Our lovely honeymoon suite was comfy and airconditioned with an outdoor shower wich we especialy enjoyed. The friendly staff went out of their way to truly make it a memorable stay with romantic dinners by the pool and on the sunset deck. The food is exceptional and we will be talking about that for years. On our sunset drive to the Kruger Park, we were fortunate to see a lion kill - a truly once in a lifetime sighting. I can recommend them and will definately visit again. This was 5 days of bliss!!!

Perfect lodge and location to get away from the city noise and to recharge your batteries. Sean and Merle were perfect hosts and Dave and Johanna look after. Food was excellent and so was the cocktails. We will be back for longer than a weekend. Would recommend them anyday

What an amazing experience! We had giraffe on our doorstep and witnessed an Ostrich laying an egg right in front of us. You couldn't get any closer to nature! Merle and Shaun are such great hosts, and David will ensure your whistle is wet with cocktails by the pool. The staff are so attentive and we truly felt spoilt! Thank you Merle and Shaun for making our time there so special. We highly recommend this beautiful lodge ❤

The Safari is situated in a beautiful location with a deck where you can watch the sunset. The bush walks are amazing. One feels very connected with nature during the bush walks. The guide is very knowledgeable. The food was scrumptious. They have very friendly staff to ensure that you enjoy your stay to the fullest.
