Rushoek Lodge is situated on the Rushoek Estate just outside Bloemfontein in the very private, peaceful and safe Bainsvlei area. The Lodge is well known for its hospitality, friendly service and personal touch. Expect to be treated like family, in other words, if you want privacy its yours and if you would like to party with the family, your also more than welcome. Like with our own family we would like to know what your likes and dislikes are. We can be very formal with our guests if that is what they require, but regular guests are used to the fact that we can go with the flow. There is more than enough rules, regulations and laws in the city and that is why we chose to live outside the city boundaries.

If you would like 5 star accommodation, we can supply on demand, our luxurious cat units will prove to be on international standards. If you would like something that is a little more laid-back, the cottage, although every bit as luxurious, is 200 meter away from the Lodge and there you can do whatever makes you happy. Rushoek can provide backpacker accommodation for a group of carefree students, but Rushoek can, and already did, cater for kings and presidents. We can keep up appearances, but we do enjoy a typical relaxed and homely barbecue with close friends. Rushoek can provide the best conference facilities in the modern and fully-equipped Nordan Chess venue and Rushoek can provide a boma fire, with African dance and a typical through the night Shebeen. American and European guests enjoy the way we bring Western hi tech and African culture together to provide a truly South African experience.
