3 Reviews on Bushbaby Lodge

We booked a 4 bed self cater lodge. One night heading north to Mana Pools and one night on our return journey. We arrived to find the lodge we had booked not prepared and Charles the manager suggested we take a smaller cottage. We moved in to find the beds unmade, no towels, dishes in the sink, and insufficient cutlery and crockery. We were very disappointed after a long journey. The following morning we were up early as we had another long journey ahead of us, to find no guests in the lodge we had booked, the night watch man sleeping there, watching TV. On our return a week later the cottage was once again not prepared and when we questioned the duty manager Charles he said he had not had time to prepare our cottage. We arrived at 6.30pm! We proceeded to unpack a lot of luggage and the 3 strong staff did not offer to help. The location and site is too beautiful. The cottages are comfortable and would be perfect if the staff had done their jobs properly. So unfortunately a most unsatisfactory stay due to the poor staff performance.

My parents went there for a weekend away and they came back all smiles. It is a beautiful place located close to the mountain top. You can hear birds singing and is so peaceful and serene. The service was great. Jan went out of his way to make the stay extra special and memorable. Thank you so much.

Did not really stay long enough to be able to give an accurate evaluation. To far out of town for my requirements.
