Waterside Lodge



Neighbouring the Greater Kruger National Park, Waterside Lodge is unique in its placement. With the tranquil waters of our lake and surrounded by marvellous panoramic vistas of the bushveld, you cannot help but relax at Thornybush Waterside Lodge. Designed to blend in with nature, ancient trees remain pristinely intact, meeting manicured lawns that are pleasing to the eye.

Due to the size of the Lodge and it’s 60 seater conference room overlooking the lake, Waterside is perfect for exceptional gatherings, strategic conferences, families looking to experience the exclusive Children’s programme, or even couples seeking respite from the city.

Accommodation and Facilities

Waterside’s 20 air-conditioned Thatched Suites are situated along the meandering pathways that move between the huge trees surrounding the unruffled lake. These abodes can accommodate 40 people. Each suite has an en-suite bathroom, indoor shower and private deck area for secluded relaxation. For families there are 2 suites that share an inter-leading door, perfect for combining abodes.

Dawn and dusk are the opportune moments to go on a safari. Our expert rangers and trackers will ensure that your Big 5 game experience is unforgettable and worth the early rise. Bushwalks are for thrill seekers and a children’s program is on-hand for the kids. Library with internet access, laundry services and a fascinating curio shop are always open so that you’re free to follow your desires.
