"We arrived at the lodge late on a Friday afternoon in March 2010, and were warmly welcomed by Vanessa and shown our room, right next to the Jacuzzi. We promptly relaxed in the Jacuzzi before supper, cooked and served by Vanessa in the lovely big bush veld dining room. Kerneels and Vanessa join their guests at meal times and we were able to have a lovely chance to chat about the bush veld and all the activities they offer.There is a lovely bar area in the lounge to relax and chat around. Vanessa took us to the Addo Elephant Park the next day and we returned to a braai in the Boma on the side of the lodge. Recommend the Lodge to others wishing to visit."

"This was our second stay at Bushveld Country Lodge and again, everything was perfect.
Aside from all the regular bed & breakfast services, it is just wonderful to come back to the lodge after a long and exciting day at Addo, and have a wonderful dinner and drinks waiting for you. After dinner we just enjoy sitting out on the giant veranda overlooking the mountains and hearing nothing but nature’s sounds.
Thank you Vanessa, Grace and especially Nico for yet another wonderful stay.

Within minutes Kernels and Vanessa Scholtz arrived and phoned the ambulance which assisted us and helped my daughter, who is a diabetic. I do not know what I would have done if it was not for them who assisted me. Their unconditional help and caring is amazing. Furthermore the lodge itself is a lovely stay over and I can definitely recommend the lodge."

"The hospitality shown at the Valley Bushveld Country Lodge was quite unexpected but refreshingly welcome. The owners, Vanessa and Kaneels Scholtz have the uncanny ability of making you feel as if you have come home.

The lodge boasts five gorgeous rooms, each room overlooking gorgeous mountains. It was lovely to be able to relax in the Jacuzzi after a long day out at the Addo Elephant Park.

The food was incredible! More than once I overheard someone asking for a recipe to take home. Nothing was too much trouble and we were not left wanting of anything!

Thank you to the Scholtz family. We will definitely be back to spend another amazing weekend at your lodge.
