"A memorable unforgettable anniversary weekend at Bushwa Private Game Lodge. Lorraine made us feel so welcome and every need was met. Our chalet was warm, cosy, with an exceptional view. The big bath and outside shower was enjoyed to the full. The food was exceptional. Elizabeth, the chef, friendly and happy to meet our dietary requirements. Going the extra mile creating special desserts. Johanna, always polite and professional. Enjoyed the game drive with Stian. The surprise romantic picnic at the Treehouse and the romantic turn down in our room to celebrate our anniversary ensured special memories were made. We will definitely be back. A night in the treehouse is on our bucket list. Thank you Bushwa."


"the Buffalos and the night drive"

Neels Claassen | 5 January 2018

"The Bushcamp is ideal for kids. The 6 children with us were all between 5 and 11 years of age. The safety of the camp allowed them to run and roam around picking up beetles, moths and lizards. They were a joy to watch. They enjoyed the game drives as well and Darryl was most helpful and informative ..."

"The Bushcamp is ideal for kids. The 6 children with us were all between 5 and 11 years of age. The safety of the camp allowed them to run and roam around picking up beetles, moths and lizards. They were a joy to watch. They enjoyed the game drives as well and Darryl was most helpful and informative answering all their questions and looking up the answers where he was unsure. The dirt road needs improvement as it is too rough for ordinary vehicles. The kitchen was taken over by squirrels which nibbled at our plastic containers with food. At night the lighting in the rooms should improve to allow reading in bed by taking off the covers of the bedside lamps."


"Bushwa - Bush Camp"

"Bushwa is an amazing place. The entire experience was one of our best. The relaxing bushveld experince is enhanced at Bushwas by the friendly and welcoming staff.

Our stay was outstanding, the accomodation is luxurious and well appointed and the Hemmingway style tents are definately worth the experience, The bathroom that opens to the bush and outside shower are exceptional features.

The food is 5-star quality. You would never expect such wonderful and different dishes in the bush and yet Bushwa surprised us in the quality and variety of food offering. When you come to the main lodge to eat, you are spoilt with a fully decked out table setting and with the most amazing tastebud experiences.

The game rangers are extremely knowlegdeable and share extra detail of the bush on your game drives. PJ was an excellent ranger and a great host during our stay.

Annamarie has managed to create a small piece of heaven on earth, all of this built against a koppie with wonderful views accross the reserve. We will definately be back and would suggest Bushwa to anyone who is looking for that ideal luxurious bushveld getaway."

"We had a fantastic time at Bushwa during a weekend breakaway for our wedding anniversary. The staff were friendly, helpful and really catered to our every need. The farm is in great condition, we saw loads of plains game. The luxury tented camp accommodation is amazing and the lodge is truly luxurious for a bush experience. The food was top notch, the onsite chef cooked chicken, game, lamb all to perfection, all weekend long. Highly recommended, we'll surely be back soon."

"On our arrival at Bushwa Lodge we were warmly greeted by Deon, Annamarie, and their staff. Annamarie proudly showed us around the lodge that she has lovingly created. She has a marvelous sense of style which exudes in all that she dose, form the delicious cuisine to the well appointed large rooms, where every detail is taken care of. We felt like we had been invited into their home and we very treated like good friends. Bushwa far exceeded our expectations and made for a truly special getaway for my husbands 40th birthday party. I am not one to easily give full marks but at Bushwa I could find no fault. Thank you to Deon and Annamarie. We will certainly have Bushwa as a regular entry into our Calendar."

I'd definitely come back and recommend it to friends. Autumn/ Spring is probably also the right time to go. It might get too hot in summer and too cold during winter nights.
