About Bushwillow Collection

Bushwillow Collection offers three totally different accommodation style options to suit your mood and we strive to provide a very personalised service.

Stay at our Lodge with warm wooden floors, reed ceilings and muted colours for a feeling of serenity and oneness with nature. Together with good, honest home cooking. Meet fellow travellers at the central lodge area with pool deck and share adventures.

Choose between self-catering, dinner bed and breakfast or all inclusive packages.

Choose one of our Boutique self-catering chalets with a private pool and quirky. We offer breakfast or try an evening meal at our lodge which is subject to availability.

Retreat to our self-catering Cottage with thatched roof set under tall and rare Lebombo Wattles for a cosy escape. Relax in the spa bath on the outside deck and listen to the sounds of the African night.

Bushwillow Collection is ideally situated, allowing for both a bush and beach experience. On your doorstep, find the world-renowned Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park, known for its Big Five. Day trips to other important game parks in the area are also possible.

Enjoy excursions to Sodwana Bay, Cape Vidal, Charters Creek and False Bay to discover coral reefs, sandy beaches and coastal dunes. There are also mangrove swamps, ancient sand forest and magnificent lakes; all a part of The Greater St Lucia (Isimangaliso), Wetland Park, the most important estuarine wetland system in Africa, which is a recently declared World Heritage Site.

For the more adventurous, enjoy canoeing, horse-riding, diving trips in the area. Or, for those who wish to pamper themselves, there is a nearby spa where you can enjoy a wonderful spa treatment.

Safari: Wake up to giraffe at your window & zebra at your deck! We offer a range of on-site activities, from star gazing, to spider walks, to frogging, to dragonfly & butterfly walks.

My husband and I really enjoyed our two-night stay at Red Ivory. The animals walking past the chalet and the birds playing in the trees make for a really special stay. The trail walks are superb and the Spider walk with Ryan was fantastic. The staff are extremely professional, offering great service. We were made to feel so welcome.Food at the lodge was also great. Thank you to all at Bushwillow Collection for adding to our magical getaway.

The Bushwillows team were awesome. We felt as though the lodge was our home for the weekend. The service was excellent without being overbearing and we absolutely loved the food - good wholesome cooking. We stayed in the Tamboetie Room which was very spacious and comfortable. I highly recommend Bushwillows if you are looking for a getaway to the Hluhluwe area.
