The Bush House lives up to its claims

The Bush House is one of the few lodges that is everything that it claims in its promotional material to be. In our three-day visit we felt at home yet special, enjoyed luxury without pretension and attention without interference. The game viewing was spectacular, from seeing each one of the cheetahs in the game reserve to owls and chameleons on the night drive. It was a special experience to observe elephant families from ground level, as they enjoyed their evening drink at the waterhole, oblivious of our presence in the hide. Best of all was dining under the full moon at a beautifully decorated table, which the staff had arranged for us to celebrate a special occasion. We highly recommend The Bush House and look forward to our next visit.

What a joyous surprise our first trip to Bush House was. The attention given to our every need is notable and worthy of praise! Patrick is by far the best guide in town- he seems to have intuitive knowledge of the bush and compliments Lizelle and team’s softer skills tremendously well for an all round amazing experience. Thank you all.

To all at The Bush House! Thank you very much for a fabulous birthday weekend! The welcome, the staff, the ambience, the gardens, the food are out of this world.! What a great privilege to be able to watch the world go by at the waterhole as well as Damian’s wonderful game drives. Very, very special. The whole experience far exceeded my expectations and was a wonderful surprise. We will be back. Very best wishes and hang in there.

Thank you for an amazing stay once again. It’s our fourth time and we will definitely be back. Many highlights but the best was having a black rhino mama charge the vehicle in front of us with her baby watching (Nobody was hurt) Damian and the Bush House Team are amazing
