What our hunters have to say
The PHs Matthew and Reece were very professional and hospitable, and had great time with them on a personal level as well. The lodge was incredible, comfortable and clean rooms, amazing views, wonderful food, and excellent amenities. The hunting experience was exciting, fun, and professional.
The booking process was very fast and easy, and quick responses via Whatsapp and email. Thanks to Leigh and the team, to the accommodation ladies, and special thanks to Petros and Frank with whom we connected nicely and had the pleasure of enjoying the hunt with them.”

Best Hunting Experience Ever!!!
5-star service, 5-star hunting, 5-star accommodation, and 5-star views. From when we arrived, we felt at home and we struggled to leave. I will definitely recommend Thorndale for anyone who is looking for a great getaway to rest and even do a bit of hunting as well. Eva, Resse, and Petrus were great and very welcoming. I will be back soon.”

Amazing experience great hospitality!
I visited last April with four of my friends. We were greeted at the airport by our P. H.’s Mathew and Reece who drove us to the ranch. The moment we arrived we fell in love with the place. The lodge was clean and perfectly located on top of a hill overlooking the ranch.
The supporting staff were extremely kind and friendly and the food was unbelievably delicious and abundant.
Hunting was lots of fun with the guidance of Reece and Mathew. I look forward to planning another trip to Thorndale in the near future. If you ever go there choose to hunt an Ostrich.
Best Hunting Experience I ever had
High-quality personal service from the time our PH Mathew and Reece meet me and my family at the airport until they drop us back . It’s only 1 hour drive from Port Elizabeth Airport.
The moment we arrived we fell in love with the place . The 5 star lodge was clean and perfectly located on top of a hill over looking to the ranch – amazing view. Accommodations were well above what I had expected. High density of quality game on their properties. Quality of food and service is excellent.
My PH Reece was very experienced and professional. Takes care of you from the time you get up until you go to bed. The Lodge staff are very pleasant and always there to assist they took care of me and my family with a big smile. I am returning next year to hunt with them.”
