Madikwe Game Reserve Lodge in Madikwe Game Reserve
The Bush House


Safari isn’t just safari anymore, and game lodges aren't all alike. Every visit really does need to be special and every moment something to be remembered forever. The Bush House is not your typical game lodge. It is an old farmhouse that after years of family laughter and happiness, has been transformed into an inviting and relaxing residence that encourages guests to kick off their shoes and unwind.

Set in the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, it’s your home in Big 5 country. We have five en-suite rooms each tastefully furnished and equipped with air-conditioning, fans, hairdryers, coffee and tea facilities and percale linen. The en-suite bathrooms have separate showers and baths and have toiletries supplied.

Our chefs create a wonderful culinary repertoire whether it is breakfast in the garden, afternoon tea packed with treats or a fire lit dinner in the boma. Relax in the shaded garden overlooking the best waterhole in Madikwe or lounge at the pool watching the game come and drink.

Experience our new underground hide. View all the animals and birds coming to drink up close from the safety of the hide. Take photographs you would never believe possible.

There are two game drives daily conducted under the expertise of our fully qualified field guides. That’s why people come back to The Bush House, again and again. For most of our guests it’s just like that, like coming home - even for the first time.

Make the Bush House your home away from home.

  • The Bush House
    31 March 2011

    The Bush House and gardens are beautiful and we had a wonderful stay. It was magical sitting watching the animals at the waterhole and I will never forget lying in bed and listening to the roar of a lion. The meals were superb and the staff excellent, friendly and attentive with a great eye for detail. The game drives were fantastic and exciting, thanks to our guide, Jacques, who is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable he was able to seek out even the most elusive animals, and we learned so much from him.
