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

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

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
