Thorn Tree Bush Camp is located inside the borders of the Dinokeng Big 5 Game Reserve in Gauteng, South Africa. It is the first of free roaming Big 5 Game Reserve in Gauteng. There is something for everyone to see and enjoy. We are Malaria Free. Why Wait.

We are small and exclusive and meant for the true nature lover, where you can enjoy the tranquility of nature, where the stars are brighter, where lion roars, jackal bark, bush babies cry, owls screeches and the insects and frogs sing .... and much more are often heard at night.

Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life in our fully equipped tents/camp/cottage. We try to ensure that every one enjoy it with us and also have privacy to enjoy a 'braai' or sit around the fire pit, under the stars with the sounds of the wild surrounding you.

Purchase a game drive self drive permit and take a leisurely game drive when it suites you or go on a booked Game Drive, to view the BIG 5, since they are free roaming we cannot guarantee that you will see all of them, but you will see animals.

Rodney, our host, went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Nothing was too much trouble.
We will be back to try the tented camp when it warms up.

Thank you for a lovely weekend away. It was your first time visiting Dinokeng Game Reserve and what a wonderful experience. Our stay at Thorn Tree Bush Camp was relaxing and the host was very helpful and friendly.
