We had a very nice stay in one of the superior cabins. Excellent location within natural reserve, potential close encounters with zebras, giraf and many other animals. Excellent birding. The owner, Liz, is very friendly and professional and has a lot of knowledge about the surroundings. The rest of the staff is very dedicated to the guests and prepare great... More

We stayed at Bushwillow Lodge for six nights in September on our honeymoon. It was a wonderful experience. Our room was located in the bush and we saw antelope, warthogs and beautiful birds each day. A wide variety of game roamed freely in the Kuleni Game Reserve and we had to stop on more than one occasion for giraffes and... More

We stayed in the green orange monkey chalet and it was brilliant. The chalet was beautiful, lacked nothing and the Gas braii was an absolute win. The pool outside was great for cooling off in. Being in the Kuleni game park was excellent with animals coming right outside the chalet, walking trails (we saw giraffe, zebra and more so close).... More

We stayed at Bushwillow for 1 night on way to Mozam. The staff were great, room was clean and the gas braai was a win. Was raining and chilly so no swimming unfortunately. Wish we had time to try the trails and activities, but will next time.

Pleasant, quiet, great food and very close to excellent game. Thank you for the wonderful service. The beautiful chalets are private with frequent bush visitors, in the form of Giraffe, Warthog, Nyala and a miriad of birdlife. Lovely end to a fantastic honeymoon!

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at Bushwillow in one of their lodges for 3 days earlier this month. We had a wonderful stay. The facilities, food, service, accommodation is just brilliant - especially when you think how remote it is. It's nicely tucked away from the town but equally easily accessible to the many tourist activities on offer... More

Tammy and I loved absolutely everything....From the warm and friendly welcome by the staff, the stunning Yellow boutique with plunge pool and game meandering by to an evening spider walk with Ryan and Jana which was a unique and special experience! Thereafter a superbly prepared and presented dinner by Jabu and staff! Thanks to "Thands" (Thandile) for keeping the boutique... More

We highly recommend this amazing accommodation for anyone traveling as a couple or with kids. We spent almost 2 weeks there; the first in the cottage and the second in the Green Monkey Orange suite, and both were absolute bliss. At the cottage, we loved the outdoor area and jacuzzi on the deck for the cool evenings. If you're there... More

To the Hiebert family, how lovely to hear from you all the way from Canada. I hope your two adopted boys have settled in nicely to their new life in Canada. They are such lovely boys and they are lucky to have you two as their new parents. I know it’s far, but hopefully we will see you back one... More

Hi Naaem & Sumayya, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t too great the weekend you stayed with us but you were happy to just relax in your chalet: Red Ivory. We hope to see you back and maybe next time you will see the Giraffe on the bush... More
