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 six-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 bar fridge, 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. One pack of wood and ice is provided free of charge, and uncapped Internet is also available.

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.

                      The seclusion of the place tranquility. the exposure to the wild life. The pool was smaller than expected and i was looking forward to something bigger. the bed wasn't comfortable

                      We were very disappointed with the weekend.

                      We just relaxed, enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi and the absolute quietness. You just hear birds and the sounds of nature. The buck walks freely between the chalets. Watched stars and satellites around the fire until very late. Wonderful experience and will recommend it for groups as you can rent out the whole lodge at reasonable rates.
