Thorn Tree Bush Camp is 4 star graded (TGCSA) and located inside 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 55 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. Enjoy our beautiful sunrises and sunsets that colour the skies above with a palet of brilliant colours.

Not sure what the one reviewer was talking about when they said there were no tents? We had no problems at all, you book a tent and get a tent. Ours was comfortable, clean and well maintained. The site is great and so are the staff. Rodney and Elzabe help to make for a very enjoyable stay.

Photos provided by SafariNow suggested different accomodation than in fact Thorn Tree Bushcamp offered. Suggested was tented accomodation where in fact only camping possibilities were on offer so we feld misled by SafariNow.com. Our rating is based on the alternative offered by the owners for double the price.
