Amazing location within Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate, very quiet with "soft" game just walking past, porcupine, warthog, etc. Large house, especially for just the 2 of us and did everything we wanted of it. We may be back next January!

Management response:

Dear Mike, Thank you for the positive feed back. We hope to see you again. Kind regards, Erna Marula Bush Lodge

Very nice lodge, well equipped with everything you need. The only thing I would say is that the aircon in the biggest room needs to be upgraded as this room was quiet warm. This lodge is ideal for families and offers great sightings of wildlife. I would highly recommend as a place to stay.

Management response:

Thank you for the positive feedback. We have already serviced the aircon in the main bedroom. It just needed a gas refill and is working now 100%. Kind regards, Marula Bush Lodge

The house is well situated; its a large estate but other houses are not really visible. There is much to do in the area provided you are prepared to travel,...

Dear Judy, Thank you so much for your positive review. We are delighted that you were happy with the accommodation. Hope to see you again!. Kind regards, Erna Marula Bush Lodge
