About Thorn Tree Bush Camp - Campsites

Thorn Tree Bush Camp is 4 star graded and located inside the Dinokeng Game Reserve in Hammanskraal, Gauteng.

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

Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life, enjoy a braai under the stars with the sounds of the wild surrounding you, or take a game drive to view the BIG 5.

We have 6 Bush Campsites each with their own private bathroom and 6 Off Grid Campsites in a un-fenced part of the park for self sufficient campers, we also have tented accommodation.

Get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life, enjoy a 'braai' under the stars with the sounds of the wild surrounding you, or take a game drive to view the BIG 5. Enjoy our beautiful sunrises and sunsets that colour the skies above with a pallet of brilliant colours.

              Lovely friendly staff, very welcoming, loved having own bathroom. Beautiful clean pool and delicious home baked goodies in the shop. We loved the peacefulness, cleaness and beauty all round us. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

              Thorn Tree Bush Camp is an absolute gem. The camping facilities are fantastic and all of the staff here couldn’t do enough to help and ensure our stay was five star! Our children will remember their first safari drive for the rest of their lives! Not easy with 4 under sevens on a 3 hour drive, but they were kept so well informed that the time flew! But maybe not for the guides ;) Thanks guys x

              We enjoyed 2 nights camping at The Waterhole site. Great position and nice shade. Fantastic pool and an outdoor shower...what a winner! Elzabe and Rodney were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommended
