Buffalo Thorn Lodge

R 19 120 - Per Person

Buffalo Thorn Is A Self Catering Exclusive Use Lodge

Buffalo Thorn Lodge is nestled in the heart of the Black Rhino Game Reserve and is only 30 km away from Sun City.

Buffalo Thorn Lodge provides the ultimate escape from busy schedules. The main entertainment area comprises a dining room, TV lounge, reading lounge, games area, and a fully equipped kitchen.

Outside in the boma, you can relax around an African fire, listen to the sounds of the night and stories told by your experienced game ranger, star-gaze, or sit undercover at the dining table and bar.

The 5 star Buffalo Thorn Lodge may be rented only as an exclusive-use, self-catering lodge. This game lodge is rented out as a whole and not on a per person or a per chalet basis.

Buffalo Thorn offers five luxury thatched chalets accommodating just ten guests (children included).

All chalets are stand-alone. The 70 square-metre, en-suite chalets each have their own lounge and private deck with sun chairs. The units have king size beds (or single beds should these be required), a Jacuzzi bathtub as well as indoor and outdoor showers.

The 5 units are made up of:

  • 2 Family units – each with one king-size bed and a loft with two single beds for kids.
  • 3 Double units – each with one king-size bed (or two single beds should these be required).

Camping cots are available on request
Please note that only 10 people in total will be accommodated – children included.

We regret – but no pets are allowed.

Enjoy morning and afternoon game drives as your ranger shows you the big and small species of the African bushveld.

Game viewing can also be done from the comfort of loungers around the pool and Jacuzzi, as many species of birds, small animals and even some of the big five have been spotted from the deck.
