“What a fabulous place The Bush House is. Besides being in the perfect setting, it is a warm and friendly environment with great owners and staff. I had heard so many good things about this Lodge from son and wife that I couldn’t wait to get there. I promise you won’t be disappointed by any of it. The animals come and go all day to the waterhole and the hide gets you up close, so close at times you have to watch you don’t get sprayed from an elephant taking a bath! The safaris were exceptional with very knowledgeable guide who showed great respect for the animals. Couldn’t have asked for more except maybe a longer stay! I plan to return!”
