Thornybush Main Lodge overlooks the splendid Monwana River. Enjoy an outdoor shower on the private viewing deck of your suite where sweeping vistas can be enjoyed over the savannah and ever active water hole. Unrivalled big game viewing is complimented by exquisite accommodation and sublime cuisine. Between exciting safaris, while away the moments at the Guerlain Spa. Experience the gentle attentions of the expertly trained therapists and indulge perhaps in a deep body exfoliating massage.
On arrival at Thornybush Main Lodge you will be met by your ranger and the lodge manager who will explain the programme to you. You will keep your same ranger for the duration of your visit. A specially modified four-wheel drive vehicle designed to carry between 6 and 10 guests is used to bring you to within close proximity of Africa's big game including the Big 5. The Shangaan trackers will enthral with their explanations of the medicinal and other uses of the numerous plants and trees along with tales of traditional folklore. The afternoon game drive is preceded by high tea and extends into the evening to view seldom seen nocturnal species by torchlight. We were treated to some exceptional star gazing and some pre-dinner drinks in the fire lit river bed, before returning to the lodge for a sumptuous three-course dinner. How better to round off the perfect day than with a cognac, single malt or cigar around the campfire before retiring to the sounds of the African bush?
