This resort is fairly remote along a dirt road, but once you get there and see the views it is worth it. The setting is spectacular, the pool design compliments the views. The service etc is amazing and there is plenty to do.

If you want to sit, relax and enjoy the view, this is the place to go. We love Bushmans Nek for its relaxing atmosphere. I can sit on the spacious stoop, overlooking the beautiful swimming pool and mountains the whole day long.

The cooker was broken which they replaced during our stay. The kitchen units were dirty and in need of replacement. There is a log fire in...

After reading some negative reviews about Bushman's Nek I was worried that we'd made a big mistake, but I needn't have worried we all loved our stay at the resort. And will be back. The accommodation was spacious, linen was good quality, staff were amazing. Kiddie entertainment delightful, My grandson love "Freddy First"

What a stroke of luck in booking in at Bushmans Nek Berg & Trout. It is the most awesome, beautiful landscape to look at this was purely a stop over but one we will come back to for a longer period.
