Bush House was everything we hoped it would be and much more. Beautiful surroundings, delicious food served in a variety of settings and attentive, friendly staff make Bush House the warm and relaxed environment that it is. We enjoyed our time sitting overlooking the water hole watching the comings and goings during the day. Thank you to Sue, Gordon and the whole team for creating perfection!

Dear Sue,Gordon and Staff, We started visiting the Bush House in 2005, than we were still living in Holland. Immediatly we felt at home, we were pampered from the early mornings till the late evenings. Food to die for and game drives that open your eyes.In the six years that we are visiting the Bush House we enjoy it over and over again. No better place like home, yes that is the Bush House. We are now living in Jeffreys Bay SA since 2009 and we love to go to our Home away from Home.Both places are “coming home” for us.

Bush House family- Thank you for another wonderful stay! Absolutely loved the hot water bottles on the morning game drive. Great idea. We greatly appreciate the personal care we received – all the details- were not overlooked by us :)The Bush House has been, and continues to be, our most favorite safari lodge!

What a truly unforgettable holiday!! To each and everyone of you from behind the scene to front of house…….a big thank you! From the moment (literally) we arrived, the setting, the elephant at the watering hole, the lioness chasing the warthog, the welcoming fires, the smiles,the hosts,the delicious dinners,that home from home feeling. Nothing was too much trouble. A fabulous evening with a braai, a delicious birthday cake for Millie.…..a hard act to follow. We wished , we hoped, we dreamed and you made it all come true!No sooner had we spoken about rhino and they were there.The leopard experience… none of us will forget.The kids marvelled when you “spoke” to the elephant bull. We have relaxed, enjoyed and laughed, now it’s time to say goodbye. Although in Belgium we say “Au revoir” and we will return!! Thank you ALL for making us feel really special and privileged.

This our second visit has been enormous due to Bush House family of the animals of Madikwe. The hide has been an outstanding new feature. Can’t even describe the amount of animals we’ve seen. Special thanks to Thomas for the super game drives. To the Bush House family thank you for our home-from home and hope to see you again soon. We are very sad to leave and a fantastic week.

The Bush house was AWESOME!! I had the bestest time. The bed was very comfortable, food amazing (try the milk tart and poached pear) and the waterhole has endless animals coming and going. The hide was a brilliant design (Thank you Gordon !!) what allows guest to watch the animals up close and personal. I would definitely recommend this place to EVERYONE! I will come back in a few years but I will be back for sure. Thank you Sue and Gordon and Tommy and Werner and Tumi and chef I had an amazing time.


Lots of love Sylvia Vancouver Canada
