Had an enjoyable and restful stay at Bushbaby Lodge. The staff is welcoming and friendly. Rooms are exceptionally clean, plus there's an outdoor shower. In the estate, there is a Golf course, cycling or running route. Plenty of interesting bird life to see. Definitely worth a visit.

Very peaceful place, you can actually hear your own thoughts. To Lindo and Brenda, thank you very much for the hospitality. Although we got there very late, everything was smooth. Was looking forward to use your outside showers but then the weather didnt play along. The clubhouse, breakfast, awesome! Definately coming back with my boys for a round of Golf. They even have WIFI vouchers, so, for anyone who likes staying connected, they have you covered. Beautiful place!

I left Bushbaby with mixed feelings. And here is why: The place is beautiful, the atmosphere is serene, and the room is super clean and adequate size. The bathroom with outdoor shower is super cool. The place is in a guarded estate with Nkonyeni Golf estate. However, it was my bad luck that they were remodeling one of the rooms right next to me during my stay which was a bit noisy. Then the wifi (i am not sure if it’s a permanent thing or not) was terrible, I live in eastern DRC and I have 10 times better connection! Upon arrival you have to sign a terms and conditions document, which i never saw in any other place so far (basically discharging all the responsibility of the establishment for any losses you might have but you being responsible for any damages you might incur to the place). I am not sure if my question about the legality of signing such document went understood as the management suggests there should be no problem with the valuables of the clients, and I keep insisting then why ask to sign such document? The place is more like a bed and breakfast. For lunch and dinner you have to go to the Club house which is 700 meters distance, so no big deal except when there is torrential rain, at that point the place is not able to offer you any possibility to move around (except you can rent a golf cart for 35 USD for 2 days!). Talking about transportation, the place is about 25 km distance to Manzini (the capital) and 75 km to the new airport. Upon arrival, there is no other means but either rent a car and find your way to the location or hire a taxi (which I did), which costs arm and a leg! I didn’t rent a car so I was practically stranded in the hotel. So if you want to move around and see the town, etc. You either have to rent a car, or not stay in this place. This last part is no fault of the hotel, it’s just a general problem in Eswatini I believe. For conclusion, if you want to have a quiet, relaxing short vacation this is the place, if you avant to move around and be in the heart of town, probably not the best selection

Good Morning Banu_Altunbas, Thank you for your review about your stay at Bushbaby Lodge - We appreciate all feedback as this helps us grow as a business - We apologies about the noise during your stay - we generally try and get this done during hours when guests are on the premise as we do need to get the maintenance on the rooms done. We will however be more careful in future regarding this. WiFi service in Swaziland is a continuous problem - We current have 3 different service providers at the Lodge in the hopes that 1 is working at any given time - We are however trying to find a solution to the wifi problem going forward - I have gone through your concern with regards to our indemnity - Indemnities are however standard practice at any establishment whether or not there as safes - but I do see your concern - We are currently in the process of looking for safes to install in the rooms to provide a safe place for storage for our guests. In terms of the transport - we are very transparent in our advertising about the distance we are from town but it is always good for people to see it again - Once again thank you for your valuable comments. Kind Regards.

My husband and I love time at Bushbaby, whether for a relaxing time in the lawnchairs with coffee or luxury overnight stays. For breakfast they have the best secret sauce recipe for shakshusa. Top quality place with best service. Surrounded by a golf course, there’s excellent places to walk and dinner can be had at a nearby restaurant. A+
