What a truly unforgettable holiday!! To each and everyone of you from behind the scene to front of house…….a big thank you! From the moment (literally) we arrived, the setting, the elephant at the watering hole, the lioness chasing the warthog, the welcoming fires, the smiles,the hosts,the delicious dinners,that home from home feeling. Nothing was too much trouble. A fabulous evening with a braai, a delicious birthday cake for Millie.…..a hard act to follow. We wished , we hoped, we dreamed and you made it all come true!No sooner had we spoken about rhino and they were there.The leopard experience… none of us will forget.The kids marvelled when you “spoke” to the elephant bull. We have relaxed, enjoyed and laughed, now it’s time to say goodbye. Although in Belgium we say “Au revoir” and we will return!! Thank you ALL for making us feel really special and privileged.

This our second visit has been enormous due to Bush House family of the animals of Madikwe. The hide has been an outstanding new feature. Can’t even describe the amount of animals we’ve seen. Special thanks to Thomas for the super game drives. To the Bush House family thank you for our home-from home and hope to see you again soon. We are very sad to leave and a fantastic week.

The Bush house was AWESOME!! I had the bestest time. The bed was very comfortable, food amazing (try the milk tart and poached pear) and the waterhole has endless animals coming and going. The hide was a brilliant design (Thank you Gordon !!) what allows guest to watch the animals up close and personal. I would definitely recommend this place to EVERYONE! I will come back in a few years but I will be back for sure. Thank you Sue and Gordon and Tommy and Werner and Tumi and chef I had an amazing time.

This was my first time to South Africa and I hope this amazing every time! The hospitality and kind staff made me feel like a princess and old friend. I thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and natural noises. I want to bring my fiancé here for our honeymoon!! Thank you! I hope to come back again in my lifetime.

The Bush House is amazing! The hospitality was incredible. I’ve dreamed of going on safari since I was 10 years old, this exceeded my dreams. Art safari with Artist, Alison Nichols, through Africa Geographic. You really get to know the animals when you sketch them. I agree it is hard to put in words how wonderful the Bush House is. Thank you to everyone there for an amazing trip.

It is quite difficult to put into words just how perfect The Bush House is. This was the trip of a lifetime for us as we brought our whole family with us,including our four grandchildren. We were made to feel so welcome, the children were relaxed, had no restrictions put on them and just had a ball. The game drives were spectacular and our thanks have to go to David for making them such an adventure and such good fun, including the “poo spitting” in the middle of the bush – the kids just loved it (big kids as well!). Our every comfort was met, in fact surpassed. We’ve been fortunate to have travelled extensively but we cannot recall any place that provides the unique experience found at The Bush House. It is simply wonderful!

Many thanks for a wonderful stay! It was fantastic to see the big five all in one day. A special thanks for the baby leopard!!! The staff was phenomenal, we loved them all. Coenie- brush your hair! The food was beautiful and delicious and the service was fantastic. We definitely enjoyed the warn fires and hot water bottles. The game drives were great and we saw many animals that matched our criteria- 1. If we could eat it. 2.If it could kill a squirrel. Thank you for the care you have provided over the past two days. It has been such a lovely, enjoyable stay.

Thank you so much for a superb stay.You seem to have thought of everything down to the tiniest detail. I returned to the icy wastes of Boston (-7C!) but all I have to do is look at my marvelous pics and it doesn’t seem to matter!
