Bushbuck Camp
Reviewed 9 March 2014

We have just spent 4 nights at the bushbuck camp and what a fabulous setting they have here in South Africa, The lake is stunning, the bird life beautiful and the peace and quiet is quite amazing.The tent was very comfortable and the outdoor kitchen and braai area was great for entertaining also,loved the outside shower and bathroom area. Natalie and Norman were very hospitable and we would recommend it to all if you love to camp and the outdoors. Great escape will visit again. Mr,Mrs Allen.

This was a great opportunity for us to feel at one with nature, and we did just that!
It's a secluded hide-out, that allows you the true feeling of camping, without having to bring the kitchen sink. Everything you need is there - fridge, stove, water, beds & bedding, tent, electricity, shower, toilet, braai area, table & chairs... We never imagined a pristine "gem" like this existed in Sedgefield. The fresh crisp mornings were filled with song from various birds as the sun came up. We used a boat everyday to explore the vlei, this was the best for me - it was awsome! Sunsets around our braai, meat sizzling, whilst sipping on a frosty, taking in the postcard view - it's not surprising we stayed an extra 2 days (by special arrangement) - Simply breathtaking and good value for money. Take binoculars and camera.., also go and explore the quaint town......
