I loved the effort that was made to make sure we were warm and comfortable on a cold winter's night. We were moved from there original cottage that we booked, to one which had electricity, which was thoughtful. This however impacted our cooking arrangements as it was not quite what we expected., but overall we had a good experience.

We were blessed to arrive in a sudden rain storm and stayed for one night at Bushman Valley.The self catering cottage was very comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. The Valley is beautiful to watch as the sun sets and getting ready for a new day.Tertius and Christa

Stay was good the light at the back of the admin building was on whole night - was blinding and spoiled the experience

We were lucky enough to get allocated cottage 5 which is the last wooden cottage in the valley. The views are beautiful! The cottage is very comfortable and sleeps 4 people with a little kitchen, 2 separate bathrooms both with toilet and shower, a huge deck which you can sleep on as well and a splash pool on the other deck near the braai area. We spent New Year here and the peace and quiet is absolute.
