A Greater Kruger Safari Haven From the moment you arrive at Bundox Safari Lodge you can feel the outside world become more distant and muted. Perhaps it’s the breeze moving in the branches of the tall, riparian trees that surround you, or the birdsong that fills the air. Maybe it’s the sound of Africa welcoming you to a place where time has no meaning… On its own private sanctuary on the edge of the Greater Kruger National Park, pathways wind through the forest over low bridges, revealing verdant glades and secret nooks that beg you to stay awhile and watch the endless dance of light and shade as the sunlight is dappled through a million leaves. Blending perfectly into this tranquil environment the lodge reveals itself at every turn, spread out on either side of a small, seasonal stream. Antelope and other wildlife species move silently through this haven, sharing their space if only for a brief moment. Sparkling swimming pools offer respite from the African sun and shady nooks and crannies provide intimate interludes in the wild tapestry that surrounds them. Sit back, relax, switch off and unwind. Is this heaven? We think so! Luxe Safari Tents: Four beautiful canvas suites with twin beds, wooden floors and flowing, open decks overlooking the surrounding bush. Each has its own en-suite bathroom with an indoor shower, toilet, basin and complimentary amenities. There is also a tea and coffee station, hanging space for clothing and a standing fan in each tent. Safari Tents: Two spacious Meru-style canvas suites with twin beds, wooden floors and open decks, each with its own en-suite bathroom with an indoor bathtub, outdoor shower, toilet, basin and complimentary amenities. A tea and coffee station, standing fan, hanging space for clothing and private boma area complete the facilities on offer. Superior Tent: A stunning tented suite with a fabulous king-size bed, its own private bathroom with an outside shower, wonderful bathtub, his and her basins and the most beautiful deck overlooking the bush featuring a separate, intimate sala with a comfortable day bed. Complete with a tea and coffee station, standing fan and hanging space for clothing. Buffalo Chalet: A two-bedroom offering for families that includes two self-standing rooms with a shared boma area. One room has a king-size bed and a day bed, the other has twin beds. Each has its own en-suite bathroom with a shower, toilet, single basin and complimentary amenities as well as a tea and coffee station, standing fan and hanging space for clothing. Rhino Tented Suite: A new light and airy canvas-infused chalet with a wonderful king-sized bed, lots of space and its own outdoor bathroom with a wonderful bathtub and separate shower. With his and hers basins and lots of gorgeous deck space as well as an intimate sala with an inviting day bed and private boma, there is also a tea and coffee station, standing fan and hanging space for clothing.

This was a surprise stay as had booked a 4-day Safari through Intrepid and had not received information on accommodation at all, so arriving at Bundox was a treat, surprise, and awesome experience as was so much better than expected! Multiple pools, awesome huge permanent camp tents, amazing set up, and a chef and food that was hands down the best i have experienced in years. I wish I could have stayed longer, as Bundox also provided safari tours each day into Kruger National Park and the guides were excellent, knew their stuff, knew the park, knew the other guides and were able to find the animals I was hoping to see. Looking forward to returning to Kruger, so I can stay again!

This lodge, its staff, all the lovely details and services like game drives made our stay unforgettable! We were two adults and two kids and booked two tents close to each other for ten nights. From the beginning until the very end, the team had an extremely customer focus and our well-being and hapiness was very important to everyone. The meals were delicious and the tents and beds very cosy. The beds had electrical heaters what made it easy to fall asleep. A real „bush feeling“came across every day and night because several animals are in - and around - the camp which is great. Besides the sound of an hyena during the night, it is absolutely quiet. Our Safari game drive guide Siya was the friendliest and most experienced guide I ever met. He spotted everything, including Leopards in a distance of approx 800meters (!). It is very uncomplicated to book activities either in advance via email or spontaneous at the camp. Our children had fun every day and were very welcome by the whole team! I was sick one day and the Bundox team did everything to organise a doctor and bring me to him in Hoedspruit at Sunday! Thanks again for taking so great care! On behalf of Markus, Ben & Sarina we thank you a lot and we wish you many sympathic guests as you are all simply amazing! And one day, we will be back :-) Best regards, Monika from Switzerland

I stayed here as part of an Intrepid Travel Safari Lodge Experience. The lodge does not disappoint right from the moment of arrival I was welcomed and looked after by Tanya and her team. Firstly the place is just stunning and so well laid out lots of quiet spaces to relax and unwind. I was shown to my ‘tent’ now there are no ordinary tent it’s more of a structure contained within canvas. I felt safe and secure from any creepy crawlies and the dreaded mozzies. The room was super clean and very well appointed and the bed so comfortable. I saw antelope and the Vervet Monkeys on the estate which was lovely. The food and drinks served by the wonderful team was excellent.. a taste of Africa cooked by the chef. I loved every bit of the food and was really impressed with the quality. The game drives were done by ‘Cullum’ he was very knowledgeable and we saw so much game in the parks. Kruger for the day was stunning and I saw 4 of the big 5 before I had even entered Kruger.. I was so lucky to see 2 leopards both stunning. I failed on the Rhino but did see one on the way back to Johannesburg. On my free day I took advantage of the spa where ‘Temi’ gave me a very relaxing 90 min massage. It was so good I nodded off for a while. I even went for a swim in the rain with a G&T. I think Bundox and the team did an amazing job and have such a good product in a great location. I know they have other lodges too and if they are as good as this one then they are on to a winner. I would love to go back again at some point as it was so good. Thank you for making my 1st Safari experience so good and making me want more!

Paid our 2nd visit to Bubdox Safari lodge staying 4 nights from 25/01-29/01/23. Wow what can we say Fantastic! The whole team go out of their way to ensure you have fabulous time. The tents are amazing, my wife describes them as a hotel room with canvas sides, has everything you need for your stay. Attention to detail from food offering through to cleanliness is amazing. The camp is smaller than some others, but that adds to the homely feeling you get. The addition of a 2nd pool since our last visit has enhanced the camp. Emmanuel next time I come, I'll make sure I buy the wine by the bottle!! If reading this please go and treat yourselves. Well done to everyone for making this another memorable stay. Thanks Michael and Gwen x
