I quite enjoyed my two-day wintertime stay here as a solo traveler in this most unusual setting: a small, even intimate lodge in the midst of an unusual, private game park (with so-called "safe" animals only). The accommodations were remarkably spacious and well appointed. Sadly, the region is in the throes of a serious drought, leaving the vegetation absolutely parched... More

Bushwillow is a paradise in South Africa. A superb lodge in a great private park with peaceful animals joining you during the breakfast or your walk in the park. The staff is one of the best ones in the world. Do not miss the on site tours with Ryan and Jana.

Beautifully located property in the bush. The room was superbe, surrounded by busch. Animals passed closed as if they were home. Trails left directly from the room. The staff was extremely kind and knowledgeable about the local fauna and quite helpful for things to do in the area. The food was also very good. We stayed there because most hotels... More

We stayed at the Bushwillow cottage for a week during the June/July holidays. The setting was peaceful and the cottage had everything we could possibly need. We enjoyed watching the game pass the cottage and spent our evenings in the jacuzzi. A really peaceful and relaxing break which I can highly recommend. The staff are extremely helpful and we enjoyed... More

We stayed there with a family of five. Every detail from arriving to leaving was absolutely perfect. You could not ask for friendlier service.rooms beautifully appointed, from appliances to furniture to linen. Everything sparkling, clean and well looked after. Even if you're just passing through you get the bonus of staying with animals for a reasonable price. The most perfect... More

Staff were attentive on arrival and throughout my stay. I did not eat breakfast but had dinner both nights and the food and service was very good. No TV, no internet, clear view of the Milky Way - bliss.

We had such a relaxing weekend. Furnishing and facilities were great. Everything was spotless. Kerry was so helpful and friendly. Perfect getaway and so close to the game reserve. Would have been nice to see some game in Kuleni.
