Situated adjacent to the Kruger National Park, the Thornybush Nature Reserve is a true escape from the madness of city life. Renamed the Thornybush Collection in 2007, our group has since grown in stature from five to ten lodges. Of these prestigious properties, all but one is located within the pristine 14-000ha Thornybush Nature Reserve. Thornybush has evolved over the years into a visitors paradise, "our collection of Lodges offers something for everyone. Bush lovers can saturate themselves, not only in the big five, but also in the remarkable fauna and flora," while less than enthusiastic bush goers can recoup their sanity relaxing in the luxurious surrounds.

A bold & sophisticated luxury Lodge, with 9 private Suites (each with plunge pool, lounge and deck) along the Sabie River in the Kruger National Park.

When you’re right on the Sabie River, watching the animals and surrounded entirely by bush and sky, you really feel like you’re suspended in time and removed from the world as you know it. Tinga is an escape that everyone should enjoy at least once in their lifetime.

Perched among a canopy of 100 year old trees overlooking the Sabie River, the style of Narina is that of a luxurious tree house, where the main areas link to the 9 private Suites via raised wooden walkways. The thick green foliage beneath the overhanging roof of trees has a particular sound to it. The peace is absolute, and you can almost hear your own heartbeat. Head into the bush twice a day in the company of our professional Guides and Trackers. You’ll discover another thriving world where we are merely observers.
