Sweet Thorn is a family bush home with all rooms under one roof, with stunning views of Lake Jozini from the patios and also of the Lebombo Mountains.

Set back 400m from the lake, in the bush on a slight rise, this lodge has three bedrooms and three bathrooms (two are en suite), PLUS the advantage of having an annex off the main bedroom with a single bed and a cot AND an extra twin room on the mezzanine level.

So the lodge will sleep either 6 adults, two teens and two little ones, or 8 adults if four people are prepared to share a bathroom. Otherwise 6 people stay in space and comfort in three bedrooms with their own bathrooms.

The open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge lead onto a balcony and there is a t.v. to play dvd's. Guests are welcome to bring their own DSTV Decoder and Smart card.

Should guests need to connect to the Internet or make calls, then arrangements should be made for data and call roaming beforehand.

There is solar lighting and gas for hot water and cooking in this eco lodge, plus a boma area.

We are able to organise a boat charter - either for game spotting from the water, or for tiger fishing and guests are welcome to take a game drive through the reserve (4x4 needed off the main roads)
