A first class luxury gem hidden in Hluhluwe KZN. From the time we arrived Liz and her team took exceptional care of us paying attention to every little detail. Bushwillow is rated as a four star establishment but really it is nothing short of five star. The food cooked by the amazing Jabu was worthy of a top end restaurant....

We were greeted with a cool drink on arrival and our bags were taken to the house. We stayed in the green monkey orange room, and there is a reason why it is named this. Bright, neon green and orange sock you as you walk in. Gorgeous, wide open space in this 2 bedroom house in the bush. The rooms...

"Bushwillow Collection" offers boutique-style self-catering lodges in the middle of a private game park, surrounded by pure and unspoiled nature. They include a small pool and a spacious terrace, and the interior is stylish, all very modern and decorated with great taste. Instantly, the guests sense the loving care of the hosts, Liz and Julian, that is reflected in all...

The way to BUshwillow Collection was - thanks to the description - easy to find. We were welcomed very warmly. It was an absolute spectacular place to see for example giraffes very close. Our 6-hour safari was nearby and was very interesting.

Big beautiful rooms, good meals and excellent service. Take out breakfast package was beyond expectations. We are also very happy about the help Liz provided with the car rental company. Finally, the spider tour is definitely a must. Many thanks for everything!

Peaceful environment, natural and good for relaxation. Great staff and service. Good food and hospitality. Loved to see the animals roaming around. Fresh air and dark nights, no TV and current affairs was a great way of taking a break from our busy schedules.

Bushwillow is fabulous. I like the design of the chalets "in the bush" with private swimming pool which makes your stay relaxing, comfortable and unique. Don't be surprised to hear the Warthogs rubbing the chalet's supporting poles during the night, seeking protection from a thunderstorm! The lodge has a nice restaurant which offers excellent meals with a local touch. The...

We stayed at Bushwillow for 1 night, but we wish it was longer. From the moment we arrived the Bushwillow team were friendly, attentive & professional. Liz and the team prepared the most delicious meals and the cottage was private and comfortable. There were also great nature trails to do some exploring.

This was our second visit to Bushwillow and again we had a terrific stay. Our cottage was great with everything we needed including big private windows looking into the reserve so we could view birds and game right from your place. The food is excellent and the staff and service is outstanding. Bushwillow is located near several excellent game parks...
