From trumpeting elephant herds along river beds to the roar of a lion pride echoing through our camps to the thrill of a close encounter with a stealthy leopard, Thornybush is the ideal place to see the icons of the African bushveld and a popular safari destination.

Suspend what you know about luxury tented camps.  The latest addition to the Thornybush Collection, Saseka Tented Camp, is state-of-the-art, luxurious and imbued with idyllic African wilderness.  Saseka is the Tsonga word for Beautiful.

Saseka, elegantly positioned on the banks of the Monwana dry-riverbed, which sweeps through the reserve, with a distinct curve in the river being a natural catalyst for the site of the main area.

Influenced by the romantic narrative of tented camps from yesteryear, the tents have been reimagined with a gentle nod to nostalgia, but with the emphasis very much on the 21stcentury design.  The tented suites allow the call of nature and the bush to filter in to allow for a truly immersed safari experience.  Fronted with floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, each air-conditioned tent has a spacious, off-white wrap-around environmentally friendly statement deck overlooking the sand bed, a private plunge pool and an outdoor shower.  The canvas stretched high over an interior fit for an emperor.

The Leadwood Tented Villa operates as an intimate, camp-within-a-camp, servicing one, two or three tented suites exclusively. The Villa’s central entertainment area features a lounge and dining area, private and separate from the rest of the lodge.

An extraordinary safari experience awaits you in the Southern section of Thornybush Private Nature Reserve, proudly part of Greater Kruger National Park.

Siviti, formerly known as Thornybush River Lodge, is derived from the Xitsonga word Xiviti meaning intellectual. 

Siviti’s land is named Timbavati Plains because historically, the Lowveld area around the Timbavati River consisted of dense grass cover and trees. The previous fencing limited the movement of elephants, resulting in the dense bush taking over the grass plains.  Removing the fences and opening reserves allows elephants to move freely once again, returning the area to its previous glory. 

Set alongside the banks of the Timbavati River, you will enjoy private views of curious and thirsty animals, specifically elephants, whether overlooking the main deck rim-flow pool or from the shaded waters of your private plunge pool. Because of this, we decided to make an ode and name our lodge and land after these beautiful and intelligent creatures. 

Siviti is wrapped in luxury amidst the untamed African bushveld, you will experience unsurpassed game viewing opportunities blended seamlessly with personalized service and prime amenities.

​​With only six private suites, including the superb two-suite Timbavati Villa, Siviti is limited to 12 guests, ensuring an intimate wilderness experience. With elegant furnishings in the main lodge and private suites, you will feel right at home from the moment you arrive!

We have recently added the 8-sleeper Timbavati Homestead to the Siviti offering. Whilst having the luxury of being in the bush, the Timbavati Homestead offers an exclusive family-style experience.
