Wake up to the sounds of the African wilderness in the pristine 14 000 hectare Thornybush Private Nature Reserve

Having recently removed its eastern boundary fence, the reserve is now open to the greater Kruger National Park, giving guests an incredible game encounter.

With its well-earned reputation as one of the country’s finest bush experiences, the Thornybush Collection consists of 12 luxury lodges, 11 within the Thornybush Private Nature Reserve and one in the northern part of Sabi Sands – both big five country and rich in fauna and flora. Drift miles away from the city buzz as you soak up the rich biodiversity, enjoy the lodge’s luxury surrounds and delicious cuisine, or pamper yourself at the spa.

One lucky reader and their guest will win a three-night (sharing) stay at Thornybush Game Lodge worth R40 000. The stay includes accommodation, all meals, tea, coffee and snacks, dawn and dusk game drives and optional bush walks. For more information, visit thornybushcollection.co.za
