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.

You know how much we all enjoy having you with us and thank you for your wonderful support and for all the guests you bring with you . Our waterhole is great way to watch the (animal) world go by and relax in the peace of the garden. We look forward to your next trip.

Spectacular view from the garden
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 will have a fantastic trip!

how many guests?
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.
