The Bush House – Madikwe Game Reserve

Safari isn’t just safari anymore - and game lodges are not all alike.

Every visit really does need to be special, and every moment something to be remembered forever.

So how do you sum up what makes The Bush House different, original and distinctive?

If we combined all our guest comments and mixed them into a blend of experiences you would get welcoming, familiar, comforting ,unique and unpretentious would be the result.

The warm and heartfelt welcome on arrival, our attention to detail, the personal touch, our genuine interest in the guest and your feeling of being in the home of good friend is what we are known for. Comfortable, relaxed and informal is the order of the day. The Bush House is the perfect breakaway to recharge your batteries and revel in the magic of malaria free Madikwe that is its animals, abundant birdlife and an incredible refuge from the stress of city life.

Maybe it’s more about the whole experience than a single sighting. More about the amazing memories you made while you were one with nature as you pulled the bushveld around your shoulders like a blanket, and in a strange, wonderfully familiar way you felt completely at home

That’s why guests come back to The Bush House again and again. For most it’s just like that, coming home - even for the first time.
