The Lodge

The Bush House IS your home in Big Five country. Our informal style, intimate atmosphere and caring staff make you feel welcome, relaxed and part of our family.




We have six ensuite rooms. Four of them have private verandahs where you can sit and contemplate the world, one overlooks the garden and waterhole with another having the soothing sounds of a water feature outside the sliding door. All of our rooms are part of the main lodge so there are no unnecessary long walks to and fro.

The rooms are tastefully furnished with percale bed linen and fluffy towels. The rooms have air-conditoners and fans, hairdriers, coffee and tea facilties. The bathrooms have separate baths and showers with a variety of toiletries. We have 220v electricity, cell phone signal and free Wi-Fi should you need to stay in touch.



Our Chefs, who together create a wonderful culinary repertoire, whether it is breakfast in the garden, afternoon tea packed with treats or a fire-lit dinner in the boma under the stars. We try as much as possible to accommodate all dietary requirements.
