On Safari

Game drives are conducted through out the year at optimum viewing times when game activity is generally at its peak, i.e. early morning and late afternoon into evening. The morning safari departs at sunrise, and the evening drive leaves late enough in the afternoon for guests to enjoy a bush sunset and the opportunity to view nocturnal animals after dark. The spectacular southern night skies, especially vivid during the winter months, provide guests with stunning views of famous constellations such as the Southern Cross, Orion in summer and Scorpio in the clear winter evenings.

Our Summers are traditionally very hot and wet with Winter being dry and cold. Hats and sun block are an absolute must as are sweatshirts and jerseys. The varying layers of all of these are dependent on the time of the year!

 

Seasons differ vastly in the African bushveld, but no one season can be rated above another, for each has its own unique appeal. Spring (September) and Autumn (April) are very short seasons and usually provide milder weather conditions and subtle changes in vegetation. Summer (October to March) tends to be hot, but the bush looks wonderfully green and lush.

 

Many mammals produce their offspring in the height of summer (December/January) and the youngsters are a special treat on safaris. Winter (May to August) brings with it drier, more temperate weather condition and the bush takes on a stark but beautiful appearance. At any time of year, your encounters with the wild at The Bush House will be very special and memorable.

  • Dear Sue, We stayed at your place on 16th May - unfortunately just one night. Just a quick note to say that we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Your staff are very nice and the Bush House is just magical. I can honestly say I shed a quiet tear when I left. Hope to be back one day. Thanks.

  • Another memorable stay and so many highlights. A leopard, cantankerous ostrich, a playful baby rhino, dwarf mongoose, a charging elephant and my first walking safari here where I learnt so much about the flora and fauna – thanks Stefan. Thanks also to all The Bush House staff who contribute towards making this a “home away from home’ as always.
