About Thornwood

Thornwood is a luxury private retreat within Kuleni Game Park, 150 hectares of pristine natural bush offering self guided walking trails amongst an abundance of bird life and game. The park is situated in the heart of Southern Maputaland and is a neighbour to The Greater St Lucia Wetland Park.

Hluhluwe Accommodation

Thornwood offers luxury accommodation for up to 8 people in a self-catering, fully serviced, upmarket lodge. A unique blend of luxury timber frame units, blend seamlessly into the surrounding bush, and superior comfort, second only to the natural beauty Mother Nature has to offer.

The main unit consists of a spacious lounge and entertainment area with a decked pool, DStv, pool table and a study nook. Thornwood has a large well-fitted kitchen with all modern day conveniences.

The kitchen leads out onto a large fire pit deck, which is perfect for evening braais and fireside chats, canopied by spectacular night skies unique to Africa.

Also included in the main unit are two full en-suite bedrooms that have outdoor showers and bathtubs that open out to the African bush.

Another two separate bedroom units offer privacy and seclusion positioned under magnificent indigenous trees and are both linked to the main unit by short walkways.

Location & Attractions

Kuleni Game Park itself offers self-guided walking trails with an abundance of bird-life and game such as giraffe, zebra, nyala, wildebeest and impala. The park is enclosed by an electrified double game fence, offering security to both wildlife and residents.

Kuleni Game Park is situated in the heart of Southern Maputaland and is a neighbour to the famous Phinda Game Reserve and The Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, now a world heritage site. The Hluhluwe - Umfolozi Park, known for it's Big 5, is right on your doorstep as well as a wide variety of activities and interesting sites to visit.

Verified reviewexcellent

Thornwood has to be one of the most special private lodges on the North Coast. Our family recently treated us to a surprise weekend to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and they certainly chose a wonderful setting to celebrate. The lodge is very upmarket, beautifully decorated and we will certainly be back. Thank you Jacqui! The Markham and Emberton families.
