It was really a nice stay. Warm welcome, nice rooms, lovely stay. The first day we had a diner only for two. 😀 I loved this place, really quiet and relaxing. The food was perfect. Good place to start our trip with.

We had a absolutely wonderful stay at Bushwillow. Everything about our stay was as promised or better. Bushwillow in Hluhluwe or (Shlooshlouie) using California phonics, was exactly what we hoped for in a lodge. From the comfort and beauty of the lodgings to the friendliness of the entire staff, to the thoughtful and delicious meals it was all beyond our...

Wonderful place with very friendly and helpful hosts. Great walking trails in the reserve. Excellent restaurant if you choose not to self-cater. Modern, boutique rooms with a private pool make for a pleasant change from the usual rustic game reserve getaway.

Unique and luxurious Green Monkey Orange Lodge made our stay so comfortable! High-quality design and beautiful even in its details - we could not have asked for more. The lodges are placed directly in the bush - perfect location to relax, although there is a lot of things to be done nearby. Liz and her staff made us always feel...

I quite enjoyed my two-day wintertime stay here as a solo traveler in this most unusual setting: a small, even intimate lodge in the midst of an unusual, private game park (with so-called "safe" animals only). The accommodations were remarkably spacious and well appointed. Sadly, the region is in the throes of a serious drought, leaving the vegetation absolutely parched...

Dear Daniel, Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the friendly staff. Yes, the drought is terrible and we are really feeling the brunt of it.... the thinning bush does mean we are hearing the R22 more (not the N2!). Thankfully we have had a little rain since your visit and we hope for...

Bushwillow is a paradise in South Africa. A superb lodge in a great private park with peaceful animals joining you during the breakfast or your walk in the park. The staff is one of the best ones in the world. Do not miss the on site tours with Ryan and Jana.
