We stayed twice at the start and end of our overland trip,the room on both nights was lovely,everything you needed was included in it. The food was gorgeous all home made and fresh,the lychee cheesecake was amazing.the couple that owned it were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble.if you need somewhere relaxing but with first class service this is the place for you. Thanks again for amazing hospitality,rare these days.

Room Tip: The one near reception had a huge bath,but ones at the back have lovely verranda to sit out on😀

We found the By Bush Telegraph Lodge an excellent stop-over to prepare for, and recover from, an extended safari through southern Africa. Quiet, secluded location, very friendly and co-operative staff, excellent meals, and spacious rooms. What more can you ask for ....

My husband and I spent a fabulous week at the lodge over christmas, visiting friend's and family in both Pretoria and Johannesburg it was an ideal area to commute from. The owners were on hand to meet and needs or requirements with a friendly welcoming smile. Excellent food. Looking forward to returning in the near future.
