Waterside Lodge is located in the Thornybush Game Reserve which is adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park. This is a traditional safari lodge with thatch and wood structures that blend into the natural environment and is set alongside a lake. Extensive shaded decks make the most of tranquil vistas over water and bush. The thatched suites are decorated in tasteful, muted shades and provide spacious accommodation with private decks from which to soak up the lush environment. Open-sided, the main lodge's lovely spaces are ideal for socialising and appreciating the views over the lake. Guests can unwind beside the pool, between wildlife drives and guided bush walks, and evenings are spent in the boma, gathered around a blazing camp fire. The private reserve is home to an abundance of species with 147 mammals including the 'Big Five', 114 reptiles, 507 birds, 49 fish, 34 amphibians and 336 trees. The reserve is predominantly open savannah and with a near perfect year round climate.
