Get to Know Thornybush Game Reserve
Guaranteeing a sighting of the Big Five is risky, but it’s safe to say that visiting Thornybush makes it a probability
Thornybush Game Reserve is as wild and adventurous as its adjacent neighbour, the Kruger National Park, with the added benefit of being privately owned. The reserve’s sovereignty gives its experienced rangers a freedom that is absent in the national parks. For starters, open safari vehicles are allowed to travel off-road; another bonus is that game drives are not restricted to daylight hours, and exploring before sunrise and after sunset are customary. Through hard-earned trust, notoriously skittish animals such as leopards have grown accustomed to being watched, and allow vehicles to come breathtakingly close to them.
