What we enjoyed: Super friendly staff(Raymond especially), awesome game drive experience, outdoor shower, good food, mingling with other guests (max 12 people), incredible view from the restaurant/deck. Even better if: Advised to use a 4x4 on the +-10 km dirt road to the lodge (took us 45 mins just to navigate the dirt road by car), the deluxe Spa room... More

Bushwa Private Game Lodge is an amazing luxury lodge with great service and delicious meals. We spent two nights in the tree house which was a great experience to be outside in the nature. It was very luxury, romantic and a bit "wild" as well. The Game Park has no big animals like big five but the landscape is nice... More

Peaceful, just what we were looking for to get away from it all. Beautiful views from lodge and tents. We were well looked after by staff. Good food and decent selection of wine. We left well rested and hope to be back soon.

The stay, the food, the facilities and people was excellent. The service was some of the best ever experienced. The Tree house is highly recommended. We will definitely return to Bushwa more than once per year for a holiday or just a quick breakaway.

Bushwa is a comfortable distance from Johannesburg for a weekend or mid week getaway. They are running specials as a promotion. We visited for two nights in mid winter. The farm is 1000ha and the game drive is average by comparison to bigger game farms but has plenty of Buffalo, Sable, Wildebees, Jackal, Eland, Impala and Waterbuck. The last stretch... More
