We stayed in Red Ivory and self-catered. It is very well equipped and still very new and modern. It was unfortunate for us that the weather was poor for our 3 nights and we could not make use of the pool. A little bit style over substance: it could do with some armchairs inside as we could not sit outside... More

Red Ivory was a wonderful base to explore the delights of Isimangaliso and the nearby national parks. It was supremely comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the lovely smiling staff. Wonderful meals at the main lodge meant that we did could really chill out and wander back to our comfy bed in the bush. I'd certainly stay again

Perfect venue for a romantic getaway. Peace, tranquillity and serenity. Wonderful bedroom and bathroom with all necessary facilities and private and intimate outlook into surrounding bush. Conveniently situated to take game drives to the local Game Parks. Staff were great, attentive without being intrusive. We look forward to a return trip!

What a perfect location, set in a very private "bush" area and near to so many places to see. Nice welcome card & bottles of "bubbly" recognised our wedding anniversary visit. Thanks. We were in the Yellowwood double self catering accommodation. It has bifolding doors on 2 sides which open completely allowing a feeling of outdoor living. The personal plunge... More

When we walked into the unit was clear that this was style and that the pictures and reviews about the place were accurate. In terms of... More

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
