The Bush House is not your typical Game lodge.
The Lodge is set in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve. 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.
Bush House has six ensuite rooms. Four of them have private verandahs where you can sit and contemplate the world, one overlooks the garden and waterhole with another having the soothing sounds of a water feature outside the sliding door.
Enjoy relaxing in the large shaded garden overlooking the best waterhole in Madikwe.
Lounge at the pool while the Bush House staff take care of your every need.
The rooms have air-conditoners and fans, hairdryers, coffee and tea facilities. The bathrooms have separate baths and showers with a variety of toiletries. The lodge has 220v electricity and cell phone signal should you really have to make any calls!
The Underground Hide
An exciting addition to Bush House and this photography worksop is an underground hide that borders on the very edge of our most active waterhole. The roof which is just above ground level is reinforced and can carry the weight of any elephant that might wander across the top.The Hide is accessed from a path within the Lodge garden, or from the swimming pool, so guests can safely move along the walkway and into the tunnel without being seen by the animals and in complete safety.
The pathways, tunnel and hide are all lit at night so are available for use by guests 24 hours a day. Viewing of all the visiting animals and birds close up is truly spectacular and offers a whole new dimension in game viewing and wildlife photography. The low angles created by the sunken hide combined with possibly extreme close ups make for incredible photographic opportunities and adds a fantastic new dimension to this photographic workshop.
