Route & Itinerary

6 Days / 5 Nights

Day 1: Johannesburg - Thornybush Private Game Reserve

Your 6 day adventure in South Africa begins with a light aircraft flight from Johannesburg to Shumbalala Game Lodge in the Thornybush Private Game Reserve. The Big Five territory forms part of the Greater Kruger National Park and offers game viewing activities such as game drives and guided walking safaris.

Explore the lodge's facilities with a visit to the library or the swimming pool before indulging in some culinary delights at the afternoon high tea. Afterwards, venture out into the untamed bush alongside an experienced guide on a game drive that lasts into the evening. Stop in a remote spot to enjoy sundowners and snacks as the sun sets.

Freshen up at the lodge, before making your way down to a special setting for a culinary feast. Dinner is a five-course meal prepared by a professional chef and served in various settings depending on the occasion. Retire to your suite for an early night's rest in preparation for the upcoming days of adventure.

Day 2-3: Thornybush Private Game Reserve

An early wakeup call and a cup of coffee or tea will signal the start of a new day and your morning game viewing activity. Your professional guide will take you out in a specialized safari vehicle for a game drive. Try your hand at tracking the Big Five as well as a large variety of other wildlife species, and enjoy a stop in the bush for coffee or tea and a light snack.

Upon return to the lodge, you will be served a delicious brunch before exploring the bush on foot during a guided walking safari. This is the opportune time to get a closer look at the fauna and flora of the wild, including a prolific list of birdlife, and photographic opportunities are endless.

Optional activities that can be enjoyed around the game reserve include elephant-back safaris, hot-air balloon safaris, horse riding, visits to conservation centres and a round of golf at Hans Merensky Golf Estate. Alternatively, enjoy a siesta or make use of the lodge's facilities before gathering for the afternoon high tea, which is followed by an afternoon /evening game drive. Return to a selection of pre-dinner drinks from the bar or the underground cellar.

Dinner is served in a variety of places - the dining room, alfresco around a campfire, on the game viewing deck, in the underground cellar or in your private suite. After dinner, spend some time outdoors around the campfire gazing into an endless canopy of stars.
