We just finished our 4th trip to the Bush House. We love the staff, the lodging, the beautiful setting, and most of all...a wonderful guide named Patrick. Patrick was born near Madikwe and went to boarding school in the reserve. He knows the entire area very well. He understands and respects the animals. He can predict their movements and always positions the vehicle to be in the middle of the action. And boy...were we in the middle of the action with so many close up elephant sightings...and ringside seats to 2 prides of lions fighting over territory. Kudos to the Bush House and to Patrick.
What a wonderful place! What wonderful people! What a great nature! What a breathtaking holiday! We are returning guests since a couple of years, always missing Bush House from the moment we leave Wonderboom Gate ....and happy to come back and feel like home again. This time we had awesome sighthings during the game Drives and in the hide or at the waterhole lane. All Game Drives with our ranger Patrick were amazing. His big knowledge, his sense of humor , his respect in case of tracking animals and listen to all voices in the bush - it was so wonderful to have this experiences again. We say Thank You to all the people in TBH - again and again. Thanks for another great stay -- based on a wonderful hospitality -- we felt us like in heaven or paradise :-) Wishing you all a…
This was our first trip to a game reserve and it was everything we had hoped for. Despite a first day of rain it did not dampen our enjoyment. Everyone looked after us so well and we enjoyed every part of our visit - dinner served at the waterhole was a particular treat!
First time on safari in South Africa and we couldn't have picked a better place than the Bush House! The staff are incredibly friendly and made us feel very welcome. The guides are very knowledgeable - our guide Patrick found lion on the very first day! The place is small, only six rooms, so the game drives aren't overcrowded and we became fast friends with our fellow guests. The hide by the watering hole on the property is unique. Highly recommended!
We've been in the Bush House for four days and we enjoyed every second. First of all the incredible game drives with Damian and Patrick. We would have never thought that we could experience such a lot of animals with perfect explanations of the guides. Especially Patrick found the way in our hearts and the animals too. It was unbelievable and so touching. Also the other staff, in particular Chantè, Roxanne and the lovely girls in the kitchen, made us feel like at home. The farm and the garden are lovely, the room was very comfortable and spacey, everything was perfect. Even when you are at the accommodation you can watch the animals at the waterhole from the garden or the hideaway. We can highly recommend this location to everybody, who is looking for a great experience.
