Happy New Year! Here we are, another year laid out   before us filled with endless possibilities. We hope you all had a wonderful   festive season spent with loved ones and are well rested and feeling positive   about 2013. This is always a busy time for us. Once the schools go  on holiday around mid-December, we enjoy a full lodge right through until   mid-January.

But this busy time doesn’t seem to end any time soon as Feb and March is booked up already. Buffalo Thorn Lodge is growing from strength to strength each year and  bookings get taken up early. So too avoid  any disappointment book your December vacation early.

Bookings can be made at info@buffalothornlodge.co.za


Other than that, the reserve is still looking absolutely beautiful after some well deserved rain this past weekend. The lions are nice an active and seen regularly on drives as well as elephants and rhino. Our resident bush baby is also still around and seen poking its head out now and then from his “fabulous” hide out in the Gyms roof. And if you are lucky ( and on time) you might see him as he goes out just after dusk on his nightly patrol.

It is with great sadness that we say goodbye  to one of our loving staff members Andries Jacobs, who passed away on the 5th   of January 2013. He will be greatly missed by everyone at the lodge and in  the community.

All the best for 2013 wherever you may be.   We wish you good health and happiness and the ability to enjoy the simple   things in life… the bush being the simplest of them all!
