Our stay at the Bush Lodge was amazing. It is so peaceful with a stunning forest feeling surrounding you. The lodges are spacious and clean. The staff and security is super friendly. I will highly recommend this place to anyone from singles,couples to families.

We enjoyed the Aquadome even though it was full but somehow we found our way around the crowd. The hotel room is decent and close proximity to the main recreational areas. Lots to do for a quick weekend gateway
