Very cool place to stay! The house is very cool and its nice to sit in the bar and chat. Dinner is excellent! They arranged good trips for us and made us feel like home. Also its fun to go see the zeepras and giraffes. I recommend it. Only downside is there is no food available during daytime.

Recently spent several days at Valley Bushveld B&B and we were treated like royalty. They organized safaris for us and even provided the best guide ever, Nico, who also helps manage the lodge. The giraffes and zebras are priceless. We never see them in our driveway here in the US Thank you! 10 stars and a highly recommend!

I stayed at the lodge from July 4-15, 2014. I cannot say anything bad about Kerneels and Vanessa and the whole experience. The lodging and food was great. We ate wild meat almost every night and it was amazing. Grace is an excellent cook. Nico is a gracious manager and a good tour guide. I took all five recommended tours... More

We spent three wonderful days at the lodge and are still thrilled by this magnificent setting! Immersed in nature and surrounded by zebras, antelopes and other wild animals.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
VALLEY BUSHVELD COUNTRY LODGE is an owner managed, successful, upmarket four star, safari-style Guest Lodge and bed and breakfast close to Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The Eastern Cape is called "Naturally South Africa's Best", with a million hectare of malaria-free, big 5 game viewing, fantastic beauty and endless beaches. The Lodge is built on the banks of the Coegas River and is situated on a private game reserve which boasts over 17 species of wild game animals and antelope. The reserve is just 200 metres of the main R75 on route to Addo. Our beautiful lodge overlooks the valley and promises you of an exquisite, once in a lifetime scenery and sunsets with wild antelope feeding around the lodge. In the distance if you should want to explore the valley, you will discover a little river, natural rock face and a natural unharmed environment with its own wildlife. Spoil yourself in the Jacuzzi while sipping on South African champagne and fine wines. The view from the Jacuzzi is out of this world and you have the chance to spot wild antelope from your seat in the Jacuzzi. You can not beat this experience.Around the lodge you will spot an abundance of wildlife, some 17 species of South African antelope, such as Giraffe, Black Impala, Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Blesbuck, Impala, Nyala, Bushbuck, Waterbuck, Duiker, Grysbuck, Warthog, Bushpig, Mongoose, Fox, Porcupine, Jackal, Meerkat, Lynx and primates such as baboon and vervet monkey.
