By Bush Telegraph Lodge

Certificate of Excellence
We chosen the name - BY BUSH TELEGRAPH - to our guest house because it refers to communication. We hope that after you experienced our outstanding accommodation, quality comfort and memorable guest service and facilities, then you will spread the word on our behalf. Our beautiful quirky Sardinian styled guest house stands out like a white jewel in the green countryside of the Randjesfontein Equestrian Estate in the centre of Midrand. Our accommodation is a rural country haven that is conveniently located to where you need to be and yet gives an escape to unwind after a hard working day. Relax in our cozy railway-sleeper Pub. Enjoy your favorite nightcap upstairs on one of our decks with lovely views. Indulge yourself in our home-cooked dinners served in our restaurant, pub. Take a dip in our inviting swimming pool. Take a walk in our luscious gardens. "We look forward to exceeding your expectations and delivering a standard of service that separates us from the ordinary."
