Thornybush Game Reserve : May 2010

We then moved onto Thornybush Game Reserve which is just north of the Sabi Sands, here we stayed at Thornybush Main Lodge, Accommodation consists of suites which have an en-suite bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers, a private deck with a view of either the seasonal Monwana River bed or Thicket. they also have 2 Family Suites with a lounge are and double sleeper couch to accommodate the children, these suites also have a larger Deck and a Private plunge pool. The Main area of the lodge consists of a Pool, Library with Internet access, A Boma, a Fully equipped conference facility and a curio shop.

Onto the Game and i was astounded by the game we saw, i had the idea that no other area could be as good as the Sabi Sands, but i was definitely wrong, we not only saw all the High profile animals such as Lion, Elephant, White Rhino, Buffalo and Leopard but we also saw 3 Cheetahs plus Impala, Giraffes, Kudu, Hippo etc. Our most memorable moment was when we had a brief sighting of 2 Leopard cubs playing in the bush, unfortunately the bush they were playing in was too thick to see them clearly besides a few fleeting glances.
