Our family had a rough beginning of December, with losing our Mum very suddenly. This trip had originally been arranged with her in mind, so we all went and she was with us in spirit. What an amazing getaway! From the attention to detail provided by Jumarie and her team in the accommodation and amenities, to the extensive knowledge shared with us by Evan on our game drives, and Hendrik on the game walk. We couldn't have asked for a more fitting way to remember Mum, and even the animals who came to visit gave us a show. Whether you're a solo/couple/group traveller this is something to be experienced at least once in your lifetime.

Our family came to spend few days away from today’s Corona reality and to have fun together. This place was just perfect.The lodge gave it to us all. The ranger made sure we won’t leave the place disappointed. We have seen things on the game rides that were very rare to spot and not only once. We enjoyed fully equipped kitchen and the braai area. The lodge is situated by a small dam and many animals come to drink there so we could just sit and watch animals from the lodge as well. It was just amazing.

Our visit to Buffalo Thorn Lodge was an absolute treat. The accommodation is fabulous, spacious and private. The lodge is well equipped, and beautifully laid out. The staff are warm and unobtrusive. Ranger Evan and hostess Umarie are very knowledgeable, kind and helpful. The game drives were fabulous and we were really spoiled with sightings. What a treat!
