The lodge is affiliated somehow with Intrepid/Bundu tours which is how we found it but I believe independent stays are possible. Nice facilities, great staff and service, food ample and adequate. Very good value for the dollar / euro - which is mentioned since at least while we were there the guests were by and large European. One of the features creating value is the extreme flexibility in tour / lodging offerings. No basis of comparison for the wildlife tours, but they were seemed well done (in other words I was just amazed at what we were seeing I wasn't evaluating how we were seeing it). Guides with few exceptions were very good. Small numbers of guests that time of year, so uncrowded. Saw lots of wildlife on both the private reserve and Kruger tours. I also wondered

We are just back from a memorable honeymoon at the Thornhill Safari Lodge- We booked through Themba Safari and the trip turned out to be simply fabulous. We had booked a 5 day safari and panorama route and arrived at Joburg on the eve- The next day right on the dot at 07:00 am, our guide. Sipho was waiting for us at our hotel - From there he took us through the spectacular and breathtaking panorama route at the Blyde Canyon, the 3 Rondawels, the Berlin Waterfall, without forgetting God's Window and stopping over at the Pilgrim's rest for a few pictures and to buy some curios! When we arrived at the lodge, we were met and greeted by Chris, the Lodge Manager and immediately taken to our room (No 10) which was so well turned out, very comfortable and spacious... Dinner was served

I stayed at this lodge for 3 nights in October of '09. I had arranged a tour package with Intrepid Bundu and I was really impressed with the whole thing. I didn't really know what I was going to get as the price was on the lower end but I was very very pleased. The lodge was beautiful and the staff went out of their way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. One of them even carried away a bullfrog so I could sleep easier at night...I was travelling solo and was a bit worried that I'd be trapped at a place with families and honeymooners but this place was actually a really big mix. I loved the food- meals were delicious and also served in beautiful settings. The pool was a relief for the hot weather, the bar was fairly priced and the decor in the rooms was beautiful.

I'm just back from spending a fantastic couple of days and nights at Thornhill. I'm going to attempt to do this place justice! It was just brilliant, I'd never been on safari before so I didn't know what I should be expecting but from the moment we arrived at the lodge I was delighted. From being met by a member of staff with cold drinks as we were falling out of our bus all th way through to when we checked out, I can't praise this place enough. The staff were friendly - indeed happy to sit down with you at any time for a chat and answer what ever questions you might have, the guides were knowledgeable, the food was just out of this world, the faciliaties from the bar to the pool and the en suite rooms were just outstanding. Accomodation was neat and clean and ensuite. The
