About Chestnut Bush Lodge

Chestnut Bush Lodge is situated in a game reserve bordering the Kruger National Park. This reserve is host to four of the Big 5, plus all of the general game. With no fences, the animals are free to roam freely throughout the reserve. We share a border with the Crocodile River and the southern border of the Kruger National Park.

We offer tours to Mozambique, a sea experience, tours to Swaziland for a cultural experience, trips to the Kruger National Park for a Big 5 experience and scenic experiences at the Panorama Route. These are done from the lodge where we enjoy African cuisine, with evenings around the fire while listening to the roar of the lions and the laugh of the hyenas. Chestnut Bush Lodge is fully serviced with towels and linen. Bed and breakfast is included in our rates and dinner can be served by arrangement.

Safari: With no fences, the animals are free to roam freely throughout the reserve. We share a border with the Crocodile River and the southern border of the Kruger National Park.

The best holiday we had in years. Jan & Elise were excellent hosts and really made it very enjoyable to stay there. They entertained me, my wife and our 4 year old boy from the beginning till the end and we will go back to them.

We enjoyed the holiday of a lifetime! Jan & Elise were the perfect hosts and they catered to our every whim. The accommodation is great and in a fantastic setting where all sorts of wildlife made regular visits to the big, open gardens and surrounding area. We saw wildebeest, buffalo, giraffes, zebras, impala, kudu, warthogs, mongeese, etc. every day. We saw a bushbaby in the evenings. The food was par excellence and there was always plenty of it. Sundowners were enjoyed after dinner in the evenings when we heard the roar of the lions in the near distance. All in all, we will remember this...

Kick back in an open safari vehicle on a tour of Kruger National Park. Qualified FGSA field guides will introduce you to the Big 5 and seek for the Magnificent 7. Definitely a far more enjoyable Kruger experience than self-driving in a small sedan.
