We were part of a large party which was staying at the lodge for two nights and included a three hour safari each day for three days. On our arrival and inside the lodge grounds our bus was blocked by three Giraffes! FAB!! We were shown to our family block which was some distance away from the reception/restaurant. This was...

A pleasant surprise, away from all, without all the frills and trimmings at a very reasonable rate. Friendly staff, good food - a good selection of that should please most guests. When next in the area, certainly to stay

I was fortunate enough to spend 3 nights at Bushland with my family. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. We have took unguided walks through the reserve and got some great opportunities for photos of zebra, giraffe and even ostrich. The hide offers a relaxing environment to spend a few hours overlooking the waterhole looking for game or just to... More

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...

We were in a self catering unit. These were pleasant enough although the lounge kitchen area was on the small side particularly considering these are 6 sleepers and the kids go in the lounge. Great playground for kids we could look out over. The BBQ grill was missing, luckily place wasn't full took from next door. One afternoon we could... More

We were a group of 20 booked for a period of 4 days from 2 - 6 January 2013. I personally made our bookings through SA Places 7 months prior and requested specific self-catering units. I paid everything upfront and our specific lodging was confirmed. On arrival we were allocated completely different rooms, our rooms had already been given to... More

We were extremely disappointed first by the reception we received on arrival and the non existent help we received getting to our room/cabin set deep in the trees. The fire drill posted in the room says to phone emergency number in case of fire, difficult as there was No phone. The room was clean but the bathroom needs updating. The... More
