The Bush House
Madikwe Game Reserve
The Bush House is an old homestead in the western part of the malaria-free Madikwe Game Reserve, which is more like a home than a hotel. This charming game lodge has a lot of history and many stories to tell.
The Madikwe Game Reserve boasts 76,000 hectares of Big 5 game viewing territory.
As well as elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo, the reserve is also home to wild dog, cheetah, plains game including gemsbok, springbok, zebra and giraffe, and over 340 species of birds.
The Bush Home accommodates just 10 people in double rooms, which are simply decorated but equipped with air-conditioning, mosquito nets and percale linen.
The veranda and garden overlook one of the best waterholes in the reserve and often the sightings are as exciting as they are on a game drive.
The service is friendly and warm, and the total experience is like being in a good friend's home.
