We had the pleasure of staying at the Bushwa Game Lodge in the first of March. We stayed in the luxury tent with a spectacular view. We booked full board with a morning and evening game drive - it was well worth it. All the service was superb and Annemarie and her family were incredibly kind. Everything was smooth, from... More

Bushwa Game Lodge once again delivered a superb weekend get away! The tranquility, isolation and closeness to the wild of the Treehouse is incomparable to any other lodge! The spa treatments are blissful! The lodge food is 5 star! Anne Marie and her team exceptional hosts! Would definitely recommend the Treehouse For a truely amazing romantic bush experience!

We celebrated our 60th birthdays with all of our children and grandchildren spending 5 days at Bushwa. We enjoyed it immensely, particularly as it took us all away from the hussle and bussle of our normal lives to the wonderful bushveld, where we could relax, enjoy God's creation, touch base with one another, and share the peace and quiet together....

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
