About Thorn Tree Bush Camp - Campsites

Thorn Tree Bush Camp is 4 star graded and located inside the Dinokeng Game Reserve in Hammanskraal, Gauteng.

This camp 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.

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.

We have 12 Tented Bush Camps ranging from 2 - 8 sleepers. We also have 2 family size campsites at the main camp and 6 wilderness campsites for self sufficient campers in a unfenced part of the park.

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 38 people sharing in the Bush Tents, maximum 20 campers on the 2 family stands and maximum 24 campers in our wilderness Campsite area.

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.

                                  The camp has planted quite a few new trees in the open area. Once these grow bigger, there will less of an open space which I think will improve the atmosphere. Just a pity the MV overhead line runs right thru the camp. This kind of spoils the atmosphere as well. The noise from the water pump and storage tank filtration unit, which is very near to the permanent tents is a bit annoying and kills the ambient noise of the surrounding nature somewhat. Camp needs better stand-alone self camping facilities. This will help cater for a greater range of potential clientele. However, I was disappoint...

                                  Peaceful and next to waterhole,. Lovely hosts, very friendly. We were camping using our own camping gear. The pre-set tents at the lodge are very nice.

                                  Absolutely enjoyed our camp. It was quiet and allowed for relaxation.
