ABOUT thornhill

Spoil yourself with an affordable break-away at “Thornhill Guest House.” Situated within the Ndlovumzi Nature Reserve it boasts bountiful wildlife such as ostrich, black back jackals, baboons, zebra, giraffe, impala, waterbuck, wildebeest, kudu, sable and much more!

Wake up to the sound of birds and bush life as you enjoy your coffee in Africa’s garden.
