About The Bush House

Safari isn’t just safari anymore, and game lodges aren't all alike. Every visit really does need to be special and every moment something to be remembered forever. The Bush House is not your typical game lodge. It is an old farmhouse that after years of family laughter and happiness, has been transformed into an inviting and relaxing residence that encourages guests to kick off their shoes and unwind.Set in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, it’s your home in Big 5 country. We have five en-suite rooms each tastefully furnished and equipped with air-conditioning, fans, haird

Safari: Large busy waterhole right in front of the lodge. Viewable from the large shady garden and exciting underground hide right at the edge of the waterhole.

Family friendly: We welcome children of all ages in camp . Children under six years of age do not go out on the adult game drive We offer a Kiddies Bumble for the little ones. This is a shortened version of the adult drive .

Covid Safety Approved: Our COVID 19 PROTOCOLS have been developed and aligned with global health and safety protocols to provide safe travel assurance. These protocols have received the World Travel and Tourism Council’s (WTTC) Global Safety Stamp of Approval
