What an amazing place. The cottage is absolutely beautiful. From the hot tub you can see giraffes and other animals. That is what makes this place amazing! Tip: do the spider safari. It is very good and unique!

We stayed in the family unit and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was beautifully done, staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. The only request we would have is duvets instead of blankets and sheets as we find it more hygienic. Thank you for a lovely but too short stay. Will be back.

This was our second visit and we were not disappointed. An absolute gem! Hidden in the bush with all the wonderful animals around you. We loved the various trails. Keep up the excellent work. We will be back soon!

Stayed in yellowwood and thoroughly enjoyed 5 nights. This was the first time for us to break the journey from Kruger park to the north coast. Very restful and quiet. To be able to walk in the 'safe' game park that the resort is sited in is wonderful. Breathe the air in the morning and see the game grazing. The... More

We were thrilled with the entire experience offered at Bushwillow. The privacy of our lodge was perfect. The support of the staff in organising our daily activity, servicing our room, preparing our food was exceptional. We would highly recommend the dinner package offered. It was great value for money, lovingly prepared, beautifully served and tasted awesome. Ryan, the local guide,... More

We stayed in the cottage for only night which was far too short ofcourse because you can easily spend at least a week is this little gem in the Elephant coast. The cottage is facilitated with all the comforts and luxury a modern traveller needs. Tastefully decorated inside. The outside deck is a relaxing place to relax and enjoy the... More

Unique bush experience - we stayed in Green Monkey Orange. Very neat, well equipped, and stylishly furnished. Service with a smile. Thanks Liz and team for a great time. An open fire in a boma would have been nice though!

Dear Corneel, Thank you for posting a review for us. In response to your request for an open fire and a boma: we purposefully chose not to have this due to the fact that the chalets are all timber framed, the bush is very close and open fires could prove a fire hazard, especially for those chalets where guests are...

Accomodation excellent, great food and a warm and friendly atmosphere. Liz and Julien with their staff made our stay very special. We loved the tranquillity and peace and the opportunity to walk safely in the bush and share it with the animals.

Dear Stephan & Maureen, We also enjoyed our evening with you. Although we don't dine with our guests often, we like to 'touch sides' every now and then. Liz is normally busy behind the scenes, making sure the food is well prepared and the bookings are all in order. Julian is always busy with maintenance of one kind or another.... More

A wonderful place to relax and escape from the stresses of life. Extremely clean and comfortable accommodation, great food and very helpful and friendly hosts and staff. The rooms are very well equipped - and can only be described as perfect luxury in the bush.

Dear Rebecca & Michael, It is always a pleasure to have you stay at Bushwillow. The last time was only a short visit but that is also okay with us. Hopefully next time I can convince you to do the walks with Ryan as I am positive you will love them! We've also added some new activities as well as... More
