About Thorn Tree Bush Camp

Thorn Tree Bush Camp in The Dinokeng Game Reserve in Hammanskraal, Gauteng, is for the true nature lover where you can enjoy the tranquility of nature, where the stars are brighter at night, where lion roars, jackal bark, bush babies cry, owls screeches and the insects sing and much more are often heard at night.For those who prefer a little bit more comfort, we have the Monkey Thorn Cottage for you; it accommodates two people and will make a romantic breakaway for two. For those who like a more relaxed stay, where you can get closer to the sounds of nature, we have the Fever Tree Tent which accommodates two people. Then for those of you that like a breakaway with your friends and/or family, we have the Wag-'n-Bietjie tented camp for you, it can accommodate eight people. If you do not want to share or have a bigger group, book the whole camp it accommodates 12 people.Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life, enjoy a braai under the stars with the sounds of the wild surrounding you, or take a game drive to view the BIG 5.
