About Galago Private Bush Lodge

Galago Private Bush Lodge is set on 17 hectares of pure bushveld and is located just 16 km from Bela Bela on the R516, Thabazimbi road, only an hour from Pretoria and one and a half hours from Johannesburg. This is an ideal setting for small private group functions and secluded getaways.

The only ‘bush’ traffic you will have here are our birds and small game and the only lights you will see are stunning sunsets, camp fires and magnificent star-lit nights.

The lodge consists of four comfortable en-suite suite cottages, two of which are two-bed cottages, one of which is a four-bed cottage and one that is a eight-bed cottage. Each cottage has its own bathroom with a flush toilet, hand basin and shower with hot and cold water. Linen and towels are also provided.

All of the cottages are self-catered with full kitchen utensils and equipped with fridge, 4 plate gas stove, tea and coffee stations, ceiling fans and free-standing portable braais.Cooking can also be done at the communal lapa, which has a bar counter, chest freezer, microwave,4 plate gas stove , toaster, crockery, cutlery and all necessary cooking utensils.

It also includes a dining table and chairs and braai facilities. There is a heated swimming pool, jacuzzi and paths through the bush to see the resident duikers and impala, abundant bird life, and game on the adjoining farms. A tuck shop is available for daily needs as well as uncapped Internet.

We are proud of our four spacious camping sites which offers private ablution facilities. Six newly constructed camping sites with their ablution facility is also available. These sites are paved with grass and is equipped with a 15A power outlet as well as a braai stand. The camping site has its own swimming pool and Lapa. The Lapa is also available for guests who wants to host their private function.

There are many activities nearby if you want to do more than just linger and completely relax in our lodge; you can visit the elephant and cheetah sanctuaries which are only 10 km from the lodge. Game viewing is available on request. There is also a golf driving range nearby and of course, the hot springs in the area.

                      I love the environment neatness, and the friendliness of Phillip and staff. I have a suggestion about the bathroom like the room we slept in they should have a separate shower and toilet for other room it 8 sleeper.

                      This place is just perfect. It's welcoming.. A good touch to nature. It's very well taken care of. Inside and outside. We enjoyed our stay. Exactly as is on the internet. We are definitely going back.

                      I loved the "bokkies" that would run past the room, i enjoyed the birds, the quiet.
