Thornybush Game Reserve, Mpumalanga

Infos pratiques

La réserve Thornybush est située au sud de Hoedspruit. L'observation du gibier ici est bonne toute l'année, car les clôtures empêchent les animaux de migrer. Royal Malewane est le lodge le plus haut de gamme du parc, tandis que le Kwa Mbili Game Lodge accueille les visiteurs avec un budget plus serré.

How to Get There

You can reach the reserve on a short flight from O.R. Tambo International Airport to Eastgate Airport and from there take a shuttle to your accommodations or a small plane to one of the reserve's airfields. You can also drive from Johannesburg. The park is located off the R40 and (depending on your entrance gate) it is about a five to 7-hour drive from Johannesburg.

When to Get There

For the best game viewing, visit in the dry season from May through October. The dry season’s reduced vegetation and higher chances of animals gathering at the watering holes make it easier to spot the big five. Alternatively, if you want to see baby animals (which also increases your chances of witnessing predators hunting) visit in the warm, rainy season between December and April.
