SIMPLE BUSH ELEGANCE
N’kaya is a simple and natural thatched lodge with a low ecological footprint. It is tastefully decorated in warm, earthy indigenous woods, and offers basic creature comforts.
Set on the crest of a hill that overlooks the Drakensberg mountain range and shaded by tall trees, the camp is built around the edge of a clearing.
NOW GREATER KRUGER
Thornybush was incorporated into the Greater Kruger recently, so there are now no fences between the reserve, neighbouring Timbavati and, through there, the Kruger park. Game roams freely. It is very much a Big Five destination.
There is only one game viewing vehicle. At quiet times in the lodge you may have this to yourself. Guiding is excellent, with photographic tips for those interested.
FOUR LARGE SUITES
With only four rooms well-distanced from one another, N’kaya offers privacy and is ideal for a quiet, peaceful safari. All rooms are spacious double suites with private lounges and twin en-suite amenities. Mosquito nets are draped over the beds.
There is air-conditioning and tea and coffee making facilities. The lounge can be converted into a second en-suite double bedroom joined by inter-connected doors.
The suites look out over the camp’s elegant pool, surrounded by tall trees which offer shade.
The central lounge has a high thatched ceiling and and open fireplace, ideal for relaxing or dining in winter.
In summer, simple home made food is served on the deck at the lodge with a view over the bush.
An enclosed boma allows for dinner prepared on, and consumed around, the fire.
