A wonderful experience that had such a personal feel . Nadia and kobus made us feel so comfortable, their attention to us was superb. We learnt so much on the game drives from kobus, being so close to the buffalo and sable antelopes was awesome. We love giraffes and to see the baby one on our first game drive was...

We had a truly memorable experience at Bushwa staying in the Tree house, the food was brilliant and the service just as awesome. Nadia was great as a game ranger as well as looking after us in camp. Dinner at the tree house with a camp fire would be a great addition!

We stayed for one night in March during our annual road trip, this year being 41 nights in 12 properties, so bearing in mind this and the fact that we've stayed in various game lodges on previous trips, this review is relatively objective. Easily found on good gravel/dirt roads. Welcoming and informative reception staff (Nadia) at the main lodge, which...

Well deserved break away and every penny well spend. Food was delicious! We loved the quiteness of the bush and the early morning game drives, very friendly staff. Accommodation well maintained. Will definitely go back.

We stayed in the treehouse on our way to Botswana. A perfect stopover in the completely isolated treehouse overlooking a waterhole. We were joined for sundowners by a Kudu. The main meals served up at the lodge were great. Highly recommended, we just wished we could have stayed longer.

We found the accomodation wonderful. We loved the peace and quiet. The food was amazing and certainly 5*. Nadia & Kobus were so freindly and made us feel so welcome. We loved that there are only a few guests at a time which gave it a homely warm feel. We would have loved to see more of the big 5...

We had the most exquisite weekend, kobus and nadia were so friendly, informative and helpful. Joanna was great and the food was out of this world! Our room was luxurious and our view was breathtaking. We intend on coming back and trying out the treehouse for one night. Thank you bushwa team for your hospitality :)

We so enjoyed our time away at Bushwa lodge! It was extremely peaceful and relaxing which is just what we were looking for! The lodge itself, the accommodation, and scenery were fantastic. Charne was an incredible host and always made us feel welcome and attended to all our requests. Cobus was a super host and ranger too - we enjoyed...

The Tree house is a nice idea, but it needs a lot of maintenance and attention. The website makes no mention of there being no bathroom in the tree house, only after I had paid was it mentioned that it a few meters away. It was also not mentioned that there is no electricity in the tree house. Our hostess...

Good day Tiffany, Thank you for the review that you wrote about Bushwa Game Lodge and especially about our great staff and fabulous Chef. Regarding the Tree House, it was mentioned to you a day before you've made payment that the Tree House only works on a solar system and that the bathroom is +-10m away from the room itself....
