If you have limited time and you wish to join a game drive in a private game reserve, this is the place. I 've been there quite a few times and was never disappointed about animals sightings.

The driver and tracker did their utmost to track the animals for us.Was a bit confused that they drove through thick bush in order to find the animals, knocking down trees in the rush.

There were salads and vegetarian food available and usually a choice. I cannot imagine that this would be a problem. Staff were always helpful and contacting them beforehand should sort this out and reassure you.

Thornybush adjoins Kruger, but don't know the distance, sorry. The good thing is there are no fence boundaries between Thornybush and Kruger, so the animals roam freely into both areas.
