Just returned from my fourth stay at The Bush House. Being a malaria free area so no need for prophylaxes and only about a four hour drive it is very uncomplicated to be there. It is indeed so welcoming and one is made to feel like an honoured guest by the warm, friendly, helpful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. The room was well appointed and with the bathroom, had all the little niceties to ensure your comfort.
Food was delicious and my grandchildren were able to choose their favourites from the Children's menu.
Damian, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable, patiently explaining the special features of the bush and even went to the trouble of providing a small stepladder to make getting into and out of the game-viewing vehicle easy. He also went to a great deal of trouble to make sure we had very special sightings.
I will definitely be back!
Thank you Sue and the team

I couldn’t have picked a better place to take my lovely wife on our belated 15th anniversary! From the moment I made the booking until we left in the pouring rain, the staff carried us on their hands!

The food was so delicious and even more importantly, I didn’t leave the table still wanting more. They even had my favourite non-alcoholic beer in stock and a bottle of non-alcoholic bubbly waited in our room after one afternoon game drive!

Now to the reason for which we al go to Madikwe- the game drives! Our guide was truly that! Damian’s wide knowledge of, not only the flashy ‘Big 5’ and other popular animals, but also the vast bird life as well as flora, was clearly identified and even explained! We ended up ticking off 73 birds on our new bird app!

My first time in the underground hide delivered a magnitude of photos. All from an angle I’ve never experienced before!

Even with all the Covid-19 uncertainty, we never felt exposed! Regular screening, sanitising and social distancing maintained! All done in such a way that you didn’t feel harassed or even that you missed out on something because of these extra, but necessary steps!

I most definitely won’t wait another 15 years to go again!!! Truly our “Home away from home”! Next time the kids go with! More than enough to do to keep them occupied!

This was one of the most memorable stays I have had in all the years of going to game farms in South Africa. The Bush House has a very special place in my heart. The first thing that matters the most is that the people who work here really care about your well being. You are treated as if you are the only one staying here. And this type of treatment is extended to all the guests. The second thing is the quality of the game drives. Our guide was very professional and you can see he cares deeply for the wild and the environment. The place itself is MAGIC! Stunning sunrises and sunsets. The game viewing is Brilliant. The Food was absolutely delicious. Our room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We will be back!

With much excitement we returned to The Bush House for a wonderful 3-night stay! We were just as amazed as the last time we visited. The warm welcome, and the hospitable and kind service provided by all the staff was once again heartfelt.

The garden is stunning and the array of bird life living and/or visiting there is really something out of a fairy tale story. My mom spent most her time in the tranquil garden mesmerised by the abundant wildlife that visits the lodge's waterhole. The waterhole is so close to the garden it feels like you are actually in the bushveld with the animals. Elephants, impalas, wildebeest, giraffes, kudus, zebras, and many more all come to quench their thirst at the waterhole leading to spectacular panoramas of what the South African bushveld has to offer.

I obviously also enjoyed the waterhole, but also the amazing underground hide that the lodge has built. This hide is built right next to the waterhole where visitors can really experience close encounters with the animals in a safe and extraordinary way.

The game drives with our guide, Patrick, were successful, breath taking, and informative. Patrick is skilled with tracking, he is knowledgeable, and he has a great sense of humour really making the experience more exciting.

Our room was clean, spacious, and very comfortable once again! It is also beautifully designed.

The food was out of this world! The menus were always different and offered a variety of foods. Something for everyone. The lodge was also very accommodating in terms of our specific dietary needs.

All the staff were kind, hospitable, and accommodated all our needs! We were treated like rock stars!

Overall the experience was enjoyable and relaxing to say the very least!

Sue and Gordon, we cannot wait to return to The Bush House!

Yours faithfully,
Luzaan and Henriette (^^,)

The Bush House was our fist visit to a safari, and boy oh boy was it great. The property is probably the best part, with the underground hide and at the waterhole which were the cherry on top - they enabled us to see animals up close even when we weren't on the game drives.
The room was absolutist wonderful with all kinds of "safari-chic" decorations , the staff was very warm and welcoming, although I mush say that during our stay Sue and Gordon where away, so I didn't get to meet them in person, but even chatting with them on email was very easy and welcoming. The game drives were really great, and our ranger took the time to find the best of the best in Madikwe,
