We had a fantastic stay at Bushwa! The lodge is small and intimate, we were really able to relax and enjoy the bush. The rooms are great with an awesome view. Outdoor showers could do with a proper clean though... The drain was a bit blocked. The food was top notch! Will definitely return!

Everything was perfect, from the staff service & three course dinners to the luxury styled tents and views from our patio. Would have rated it five stars if it was not for the misleading Rhino pictures on the website ;)

Excellent service and atmosphere. Very kind and professional staff. Excellent food. We were there with our kids and had a great time but I would recommend it mostly for couples. At 26 km from there a MTB paradise venue called Lindani.

Even though they do not have the big 5 and as many activities as one would like, it is still a worthwhile getaway location. prices are a bit steep given the overall quality of the lodge. The tent rooms can be noisy when it is windy outside.

We had a 3 generation family reunion at Bushwa. It was perfect for all. I only have good words to say for Annemarie and her wonderful staff. They were very hospitable, took care of all the small details, nothing was too much for them. The food was excellent, accommodated all tastes, the rooms very comfortable. Loved the game drives despite... More

What an amazing weekend! Bushwa is pure luxury and the staff make all the difference in the world. Fantastic accommodation, beautiful setting and the most delicious food ever. I cannot fault a single thing. The game drives were incredible and the rangers were very informative and eager to share their vast knowledge of the plants, animals and birds. What a... More

Annemarie's blood pumps with hospitality! She achieves the perfect balance between being a warm & welcoming hostess and letting you have your private time. At Bushwa all the little things are just right- and if they're not, Annemarie will make them right. Big pluses are: easy drive from JHB; panoramic views; nice treed bush; the sleep out tree house (it's... More

We had an fantastic experience. The staff were friendly, food amazing and the general atmosphere great. The rooms where stunning and we really enjoyed our stay. Our car broke down on our way home and they went out of their way to accommodate and help us. Definitely going back!

We had a wonderful experience from start to finish - and we started with our hired car getting itself stuck in thick sand 200m from the turn-off to Bushwa. No problem - 10 minutes later, Sune and Andre were there to help us and within half an hour we were sipping on a welcoming drink at the lodge - which... More
