Waterside Lodge, Greater Kruger


Strung along the banks of a lake in the Thornybush Game Reserve lies Waterside Lodge. A traditional safari lodge, the thatch and wood structures blend into the natural environment and the extensive shaded decks make the most of tranquil vistas over water and bush.

20 thatched suites, decorated in tasteful, muted shades provide spacious accommodation and private decks from which to soak up the lush environment. Open-sided, the main lodge’s lovely spaces are ideal for socialising and appreciating the views over the lake.

Guests can unwind beside the pool between game drives and guided bush walks, and evenings are spent in the boma, gathered around a blazing camp fire.
