Amani Spa

Amani Spa's, operators of the Thornybush Game Lodge Spa Centre, have just completed  the  construction and renovation of existing Spa facilities at this flagship five star game lodge. The new centre, almost three times the size of the previous  operation and with two  full-time therapists,  will offer a full range of treatments for Thornybush Game Lodge guests, as well as satellite treatments to our guests at  Chapungu and  the group's self catering camp, Nkelenga, both camps  located  a short distance from Thornybush Game Lodge.

Weddings

Imagine exchanging your vows in an African Dry River Bed at sunset, the bride being serenaded in by African dancers amidst tribal song. This is just one of the ways, weddings can be catered to at many of the Thornybush lodges or at Simbambili Game Lodge.

Weddings are catered for by Thornybush Game Lodge, Simbambili Game Lodge, Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp and Shumbalala Game Lodge. It is however advisable to book the lodge of your choice and request exclusive use (depending on the size of your party) so that the lodge can ensure that your function is devoted to their full attention. Arrangements can be as glamorous or as understated, according to the bride and groom's wishes. Considerations need to be given to weather conditions and the fact that we are in a nature reserve so certain restrictions do apply (i.e. no fireworks). Ministers from most denominations are easily accessible, as are photographers, cakes, hairdressers and florists. Special menus and dining venues can be set aside for the wedding party, when the lodge is booked exclusively.

All you need to do is sit back, relax and leave the wedding preparations up to someone else whilst you enjoy massages, sunset cocktails and game drives. Our wedding venues are renowned for their beauty and excellent service.

Safaris

Chapungu Luxury Tented Camp offers unique exclusive Safari experiences in both open Land Rovers, and on foot. The private reserve is home to an abundance of species: 147 mammals including the "Big Five", 114 reptiles, 507 birds, 49 fish, 34 amphibians and 336 trees. The reserve is predominantly open savannah and with a near perfect year round climate, it is the ideal African safari holiday destination.
