I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Bushlands. The staff are all very friendly and passionate about what they do. The location is ideal for exploring the big five reserves but the wow factor was going for a morning run and passing the game including 4 giraffes with a three month old baby, Its beautiful being able to hike as a...

The chalet was in need of repair.As we had continuous rain for 2 days the gutters were leaking badly onto the verandah. We saw Nyala, duiker quite a few times from the verandah... More
