Buffalo Thorn Safari Lodge are situated only 20 km from the Martinsdrift / Groblersbrug border post and is the ideal stopover on route to Botswana, Zimbabwe or Maphungubwe.

This 4 star luxury lodge is part of a private game reserve and is designed to accommodate 46 over- nighters or an exclusive self-catering group of up to 24 people but fully catered stays can be arranged. Our new colonial styled accommodation embraces nature at every turn and offers all the privacy and superior comfort you would need for uninterrupted relaxation.

Here in the heart of the African Bushveld you will be refreshed and uplifted by an inspiring sense of open and unspoiled space, big skies, compelling views and an unmistakable closeness to nature.

If you prefer relaxing outdoors rather than within the lodge, the lodge exhibits a large and welcoming stoep / patio which will extend your comfort zone. This is the place to enjoy our wonderful African cuisine with a perfect view of pristine and untouched African bush. If you`re feeling a little overwhelmed by the African heat, why not take a dip in our swimming pool; another great place from which to see the game at the watering hole. Then, at the end of a long day, chill-out in front of the boma fire and enjoy great company over a glass of wine and succulent braai-vleis.

Buffalo Thorn Safari Lodge caters for patrons in wheelchairs as well. Our luxury bush lodges have been equipped with wheelchair friendly ramps and railings to help those who require the assistance.

Other activities:
- Take a hike! Our hiking trails are guided, and the rangers will give you access to a wealth of knowledge and information that can only be learned after years in the African bush.
- Whose game for golf? That's right! Just because you're in the bush, doesn't mean you don't get to tee off. Leave it with us and we'll organise you a game at the local Sesambos Golf Course, aptly named the jewel of the bushveld on the banks of the mighty Limpopo.
- Do you want to contribute toward local conservation? We can organize day trips to the Seditse Crocodile Ranch which houses over 6000 African Nile Crocodiles. Our area also sports a number of conservation projects that help rescue and rehabilitate animals in need, including the famous Mama Tau White Lion Breeding Project. We have our very own African Cape Buffalo breeding project on the Buffalo Thorn Safari Lodge property. The area is also home to some of South Africa's largest single-stem Baobab trees.
