About Bushbaby Lodge

You will find this lovely two to eight sleeper fully air-conditioned self-catering lodge - situated in a ‘game corridor’ - deep in the heart of the African bush, bordering the world famous Kruger National Park. Enjoy the magnificent nature and well visited drinking hole right in front of you!

Our four legged friends like kudu, zebra, warthog, mongoose and monkey visit on a regular basis and some will feed out of your hand - so keep the food ready! The lovely male bush-buck with mom and lad as well as the small duiker family also visits during early morning and afternoon. The patrys, flocks of guinea fowl and other birds will pick up their food during the day.

When the sun sets, you will get the fire burning, and while relaxing around it, you may be surprised by a visit by civet and the shy bushbaby (likes banana and yoghurt). Listen carefully to the sounds of nature, and you will hear the lion roaring from the Kruger Park, hippo grumbling in the Crocodile River and hyena laughing while scavenging around.


BUSH LODGE: (Fully air - conditioned)
Bush Lodge can be booked on its own for 3 to 6 people, or in conjunction with Baby Lodge for families up to 8 people. They are walking distance from each other, but each unit is fully self-contained. You will have your own big thatched lapa close to the kitchen with ceiling fans which is great for outdoor living, game viewing, entertaining and dining.

Three air-conditioned bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with a bath and the second one with shower). Sleeping arrangement: one double and four single beds. Open plan air conditioned living area with large flat screen DStv (please bring own decoder, cables, remote and smart card).

The thatched lapa with ceiling fans, form part of the lodge and is ideal for 'arm-chair' game-viewing. It is a delightful general living / dining and entertainment area with a braai area and easy access to the kitchen

An upstairs wooden deck, also under thatch, serves as a game hide. Excellent for bird-watching and a real bush experience for those who want to sleep out and experience the nocturnal creatures, especially the Bush-babies that visit at night!
