The Bush House is truly a family establishment. The lodge itself dates back to 1940, but it was in 2006 that it become the home away from home guests seem to flock to. Purchased by Sue and Gordon Morrison, the thinking behind The Bush House was to create an inviting and relaxing residence that encourages guests to kick off their shoes and unwind. Enjoy relaxing in the large shaded garden overlooking the best waterhole in Madikwe. Lounge at the pool while the staff take care of your every need. Enjoy a friendly game of cricket, rugby or soccer on the wide, green lawns.
Out the six en-suite rooms, four of them have private verandahs with stunning views of the surrounds. The rooms have a romantic, African feel to them and are equipped with air-conditoners and fans, hairdriers, coffee and tea facilties. The dining experience at The Bush House is second to none - whether it is breakfast in the garden, afternoon tea packed with treats or a fire-lit dinner in the boma under the stars. Unique to The Bush House is the remarkable Hide, a masterfully crafted underground structure that borders on the very edge of an active waterhole. The pathways, tunnel and hide are all lit at night so are available for use by guests 24 hours a day. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see wildlife closer than you've ever imagined.
Game drives are conducted throughout the year at optimum viewing times when game activity is generally at its peak, i.e. early morning and late afternoon into evening. You'll be in the heart of the Big 5 terrain. For the avid bird-watchers, there's also a water feature and feeding log to ensure a steady flow of wonderful bird life during the course of the day.
