Posted on 29 August 2018

In celebration of The Getaway Show taking place in Gauteng September 14-16 at the Ticketpro Dome, Getaway Magazine and The River Lodge at Thornybush are giving you the opportunity to win a magnificent, two-night stay for two worth over R52000.

Adventures at The River Lodge at Thornybush Private Nature Reserve can happen around every corner because there are no fences separating humans and animals. Chance encounters turn into thrilling life experiences. The River Lodge is the ideal viewing spot to watch the creatures down below.

Nature is on your doorstep – watch elephants thud past making their way to the waterhole only metres away. And if you’re lucky, wild dogs, giraffes, buffalo and lions make their way through the front of the lodge whilst you enjoy your breakfast. The absence of fencing means nature doesn’t need an invitation.



Here, at The River Lodge 5-star luxury meets nature at its most wild and magical, on the 11500-hectare reserve, open to the greater Kruger National Park.

With just five luxurious suites, one of which is the luxurious Royal Suite that sleeps four guests, at the River Lodge you’re guaranteed a life-changing wilderness experience and personal attention. The entire lodge is available to be booked out for exclusive use if you feel like getting a group of friends together.



The River Lodge exudes luxury from the moment you walk into the reception area and wipe your face clean with a minty fresh face towel, and a chilled glass of champagne.

Each suite overlooks the seasonal Timbavati River, discreetly positioned for the privacy you need for an outdoor shower. Each suite is decorated in sophisticated African chic, and has a private plunge pool with magnificent views. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open up to allow the great outdoors in, and with mosquito nets and air-conditioners, you’re always surrounded by luxurious comfort.

Conclude each evening with a game drive and a delectable dinner made by the in-house team of highly skilled chefs. Enjoy dinner on the terrace, within the privacy of your own suite or inside the beautiful boma surrounded by the sounds of the nocturnal wildlife.
