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

It's located in kuleni park where there are safe trails you can walk to meet zebra, giraffes and birds. The lodge is spacious, comfortable and relaxing with nice view.Tasting dinner in a warm atmosphere.

What a perfect way to start our gaming experience in the Kwazulu-Natal region by staying at the Bushwillow Cottage, a well-secluded self-catering cottage to give all the privacy and a memorable experience of the wilderness but with all the comforts that are needed. The cottage being inside Kuleni Game Park where one can enjoy walking trails to see the animals... More

Often you stay at hotels/guest houses and find that the rooms are better than the staff or visa versa, however Bushwillow exceeded all expectations. Welcomed by two smiling faces and a welcome drink upon stepping out of the car our breaths were blown away. Then our room, one of the new boutique bungalows (yellow), luxury in the bush, with our...

Waking up with dear grazing right outside your bedroom is truly an African experience. The self catering cottages are a 5 star experience in the middle of the bush. Wow. The attention to detail in the decor is truly something noticeable from the yellow cushions on the bed to the yellow basin in the bathroom. Well done Bushwillow Lodge. You've... More

When I first booked Bushwillow I must admit that I was a little nervous. I had made the booking on Booking.com for a self-catering unit. I could not find any similar details on their website or any other booking site. I later found out that the units had only been completed in December 2013 and they had not yet had... More

We stayed at Red Ivory during January 2014 for 5 nights. Once we got home, we booked for another 7 nights in April/May. Had we had more leave available, we would have stayed even longer.
