Very comfortable accommodation (Tambotie Lodge) - friendly and knowledgable staff who can recommend places to visit and make booking arrangements if required. The lodge is in a game reserve with numerous game wandering around - excellent meals served outside. Recommend visits to Umfolozi game park and to St Lucia to see hippos.

After a three hour journey from King Shaka Airport, we arrived at Bushwillow and were greeted with warmth and smiles and assistance to help us settle in. Red Ivory Boutique chalet was very well appointed and designed to give a luxurious feel. The bed was simply divine. We appeared to be the furthest chalet into the bush which was perfect...

A peaceful retreat (apart from the distant road noise that can be heard when outside). Nice clean property set in amongst trees so no open views but nice all the same. Saw Nyala and Giraffes outside the house in only a two day stay.

This time stayed in the lodge rather than boutique chalet. A more rustic traditional lodge than the chic Boutique. Very comfortable sleep. Good dinner and breakfast as always. Nice to see the staff again. Every detail of our needs attended to. Went on the guided morning walk. The site is under severe drought conditions so is difficult for the staff...

We had a wonderful stay at Bushwillow in the Tambotie room. The people were friendly, the atmosphere relaxed and the food (catered especially for us) delicious! If it's peace and quiet you're looking for, look no further.

We returned to Bushwillows having first stayed the previous Christmas in December 2014. We liked it so much that the decision of where to stay in the Hluhluwe area (and there is a substantial choice) was an easy one. Last time we stayed in the cottage, this time we stayed in Green Monkey Orange, and my kids loved the place,...

This Location is just great because it is so quiet and the best place to relax. The host couple Liz and Julian as well as their staff offer nice breakfasts and great dinners on the terrace of the main Lobby.

Bushwillow is a unique little lodge, just three spacious and spotless chalets set deep in the bush, connected by walkways to a central restaurant-bar-lounge. With no predators, and no early morning game drives, it's the perfect place to relax on your stoep with your favourite adult beverage, wait for game to pass by, soak up the silence and unwind.
