Reviews for Thornhill Safari Lodge

"Good value for money"

Rooms and the tours were good - Danielle and Goodman were very helpful.The food was not good - overcooked, dry and substandard. Directions to and ways to contact the Lodge need improvement. Phone number on the Website was incorrect. GPS coordinates are of no use without knowing which roads to take.

review by Adrian Jaspan, Canada

"Relaxing in the wild"

This lodge can be a good base to visit the Kruger park. The place is very quiet. You can book from here both full day and half day game drives. People are very friendly and helpful. Only minus is the bed sheets that were a little dirty.

review by Tullio Coppotelli, South Africa
