We stayed for a week at in late March with two adults and two kids (8 & 10), all sharing a room. We chose The Bush House because it was one of the few lodges in our modest price bracket in Madikwe. We were blown away by the amazing place and the service was outstanding. Without exception the staff were pleasant, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. The room was very comfortable. The waterhole is great and there were elephant there most days. This is then made even better with the underground hide which gets you right up to the animals safely! Although the pool is pretty small it kept our kids entertained for hours. The food was extremely good and they catered for our various likes and dislikes. However the highlight was the game-drives. We were worried that, with a full week there, the kids would become bored with two 3-hour game-drives each day. However, in the outstanding care of Tommy we were fully entertained and saw everything we could have hoped for. This included the Big Five and Wild Dogs and Cheetah. Seeing the Leopard was an example of perfect guiding by Tommy and we felt very privileged.
Overall this was an outstanding family holiday and we hope to return one day. Dom Goggs
