Brilliant bushwalks and birdspotting with an excellent and informed guide (thanks Ryan). I think the lodge would benefit from a small office at the Lodge itself to act as a reception and welcoming place on arrival, for all the accomodation types. Having said that, Jana did a great job. Main minus point was that the water wasn't working properly throuhout... More

I have been frequenting Bushwillow for many years and not once did I or my travel companions encounter any disappointment whatsoever. The service with the friendly smiles of Jabu and Victoria is always excellent. The setting is fantastic. Wonderful peace and quiet with all the privacy you want. Although some of the cottages have extremely well appointed kitchen/dining room areas... More

After having some major car problems, owners Liz and Julian went out of their way to assist us... even lending us their own private vehicle! I have never been shown such kindness and generosity from any hotel before. Our room, yellowwood, was stylish yet comfortable and we enjoyed the sights and sounds the african bush offered. Had it not been... More

We stayed at the rather eclectic Green Monkey Orange which I know I shall remember forever...as I have never come across more attention to decor detail outside a TV set. It is immaculate, excellently equipped, uber comfortable and practical, and nestled in prime gorgeous sand forest. Food was simple and yummy, staff were engaging and delightful and Ryan Tippet's spider... More

Beautiful place in the bush, very quite, silent and romantic! Everything was perfect...The resident advisor was very nice to organize our staying, so we could go around and then had a relax in the evening in our fantastic chalet!

Had the pleasure of recently staying here and we thoroughly enjoyed our refuge in the bush. Conveniently located for exploring the area or just chilling out. We were in one of the self catering boutique cottages - they are spacious, modern, with a wonderfully comfortable bed and for self catering fans tastefully equipped with everything one could possibly need with...

A great retreat from the hustle and bustle of day to day life. Accommodation is spacious and very comfortable. Great time for the whole family. Enjoyed the evening spider safari with Ryan- it was great.

Watching the moon sail through clouds over the dense Zululand bush while absorbing the sounds of the balmy night. Or slipping into your own private pool before retiring to the sumptuous Green Monkey Orange lodge for a rest beneath the gentle waft of fans beating a gentle rhythm in the thick night air. Dawn's wakeup call is a chorus of... More

Jana help us when we have Questions perfektly. The only Problem was, that there is no air conditioning and no moscitonet, so we can't open the windows in the nights, so it was very, very hot. The facility is very nice, but no African Style. The bushes around the lodge are not realy nice. You have no view. But all... More
