Certificate of Excellence
Safari isn’t just safari anymore…. And game lodges aren’t all alike. Every visit really does need to be special and every moment something to be remembered forever.The Bush House is not your typical Game lodge. The Lodge is set in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve. It is an old farmhouse that after years of family laughter and happiness has been transformed into an inviting and relaxing residence that encourages guests to kick off their shoes and unwind.

Thank you for your kind feedback on The Bush House. We love having the younger members of the family in camp and are so pleased your daughter enjoyed her stay. The hide really does offer some amazing photographic opportunities. See you again soon!

Your post should be for Bush House in Hoedpsruit which is close to Kruger. We are in the Madikwe game reserve and nowhere near the area.

We drove from Pretoria and it is a simple route with most on major highways. We had a compact car and was fine - no need for an SUV. If not going by your own car then check with Bush House about transfer from airport. You... More

Hi there. We have a total of six rooms at the lodge but normally take a maximum of ten guests so that it is small and intimate. However if one group takes out the lodge we take more than ten people on request.
