Tangala | Thornybush | Pride Lodges African Safaris Bookings


Thornybush Private Nature reserve remains one of South Africa’s greatest wildlife treasures. Within this bountiful reserve lies Tangala – the place of the lion – a safari camp offering a down to earth, authentic African experience.  This intimate 5 roomed camp is situated in the southern reaches of the 220000 ha reserve: a prime viewing area for the big 5, spectacular bird life and myriad other species.

Thorny Bush Game Reserve now boasts not only “The Big 5” but an ultimate experience with one of our Black Rhino from our Breeding projects. Getting up close and personal with these beautiful animals. We are one of only a few reserves worldwide that have had a King Cheetah born in the wild!

Our four thatch-roofed units and four tents, each sleep two people, accommodating a maximum of 12 guests to ensure a personal bush experience. Each fully serviced room is en-suite, with hot water provided by gas or authentic wood-burning geysers (in South Africa we call them Donkeys).

We pride ourselves in personalized, owner managed service. Authentic Simplicity.

You’ll enjoy your private viewing deck, the cosy blankets for cold nights and the romantic netting and fresh breezes for summer evenings.
