The Bush House – Madikwe Game Reserve

Safari isn’t just safari anymore…. And game lodges aren’t all alike. Every visit really does need to be special and every moment something to be remembered forever.

The Bush House is not your typical Game lodge. The Lodge is set in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve. It is an old farmhouse that after years of family laughter and happiness has been transformed into an inviting and relaxing residence that encourages guests to kick off their shoes and unwind.

 

What makes The Bush House different?

Perhaps it’s in the people who make you feel so warmly welcome, at the bar after your game drive, at the brunch table, or in the boma for dinner under the stars. We pride ourselves on really caring for our guests and being attentive to their needs. As an owner managed Lodge the personal touch is an integral part of our service.

Perhaps it’s in the sense of the bushveld. The dust of the elephant herds, the closeness of the rhino, the fleeting glimpse of the leopard… or the massive power of the buffalo coming down to drink at the waterhole within meters of the front lawn.

It could be the luxuries you enjoy. The sumptuous bushveld cuisine or the service so close you only have to lift a finger. Or maybe it’s more about the whole experience than a single sighting. More about the memories you made while you were one with nature as you pulled the bushveld around your shoulders like a blanket, and in a strange, familiar way you felt completely at home.

That’s why people come back to The Bush House. Again and again. For most of our guests it’s just like that, like coming home – even for the first time.

 

Make The Bush House your home away from home.

  • 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.
