We stayed on a Sunday night, out of season, so we were the only guests. The staff were wonderful - Tintswalo specifically, who went out of his way to make sure we were looked after, thank you! Accommodation is in thatched chalets, well-equipped, with comfortable bed and clean bedding. The one we stayed in was fabulously big! Warning: there are... More

We stayed at the main lodge. The chalet was spacious, neat and tidy. It was more than adequate and needs some TLC. Lovely grounds and dinner outside at Little Eden was so great. Great to mingle with the other guests. Awesome fire and good food. Thank you to Jade and Mia for the great afternoom game drive. Thank you to... More

We went there for a wedding in February and the service was horrible! The employees are not friendly and lazy to help. Place has a lot of of potential, but it's the management thereof that's lacking. Good luck staying afloat...

Two words....no communication. The wedding couple,after seeing the venue made the booking for 150 people not knowing that the venue (marquee ) is going to change. ...the drapping guy was paid accordingly and the invites done. The couple went to the lodge for the food sampling in October and found that the marquee was replaced with a new type marquees.... More

Your post is blatantly trying to downgrade our Management,Staff and beautiful facility, with what is simply a biased review with some bending of the facts. Please rectify your comment about refuses to refund. Your card did decline and was later approved - this is fact and can be proven.

An international bride and groom wanted the perfect bush wedding, with a ceremony under a tree, a beautiful reception and accommodation for all of their guests. Bushfellows ticked all the boxes. The service received during the week leading up to the wedding was phenomenal. No chore was too big or too small for Bridget and her team, who assisted us... More

Upon arrival at Bushfellows we received a rude welcome by Bridgette, which left us feeling antagonised and unwelcome. After the altercation the waiter was also instructed not to serve us by Bridgette. We had no option but to leave, while she was still confronting us in a extremely unprofessional manner.

Following the GPS co-ordinates found on the Bushfellows website, we duly arrived in the middle of a farmers field. However, a quick phone call and we were promptly directed to the lodge nearby.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In this malaria-free environment, you'll experience the best of true African luxury from the moment you enter this remarkable four-star game lodge. Our guests can choose from a variety of accommodation options At Bushfellows our emphasis is on biodiversity and as such we make valiant efforts to protect species that are otherwise in jeopardy because they might clash with agricultural and stock farming activities, such as the Caracal, African Wildlife Cat, Brown Hyena, Serval and the African Civit. We are also proud owners of 2 out of 450 Wild dog left in Southern African,Other animals that we pride ourselves in having are the animals that are not usually found in the bushveld, such as Cape Eland which is the largest antelope in Africa, Oryx which are typically dessert animals and Red Hartebeest which also tend to occur in more arid regions. Then there are the largest additions to the Bushfellows family, the two Hippos that can be seen showing off from their deck in front of the lodge in their dam, while their calls echo through the rooms in the lodge at night. ... more   less
