Waterbuck Lodge


... is located in the Thornybush Reserve in the Kruger Private Reserves area in the Northeast of South Africa.

Situated alongside a small waterhole in the quieter southern part of the reserve, Waterbuck Lodge is a chic little place with intimate little public areas including a small swimming pool. Guest accommodation is in just four comfortable suites. The service levels are high and the prices are very keen indeed.

Activities are centred on vehicle and walking safaris. The extensive spa facilities over at Thornybush Game Lodge are a little distant to be practicable.

Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari. Wildlife is reliable year round.

The main potential downsides are the rather claustrophobic situation and the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost.

Thornybush is quite small fully fenced reserve which contains a relatively high density of camps and vehicles. We find that the presence of fence lines, overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, although that is true of almost all of Kruger.
