We chose this place as break from the 4000 km drive from Johannesburg to Cape Town and back and it's only 30 minutes away from Addo Elephant Park. The room is huge, decent and with a nice view of the mountains/golf course. If you arrive early, you can still go around the estate. The low point, however, is the restaurant....

Although there is a bit of maintenance to be done, the junior suites are smashing. Large bed, sitting area in and outside, large bad and double shower and not to forget a comfortable dressing.

The 18 Hole Gary Player designed championship Golf Course is a challenging yet friendly course that follows the banks of the Bushman's and New Year's Rivers! The fairways are molded and shaped into gentle slopes to reflect the natural flow and fall of the banks of the Bushman and New Year's Rivers to its best possible advantage. Pot Bunkers ensure an exigent, yet exciting! Golf Club facilities include a pro-shop and two spacious locker rooms, each with showers. Golf Carts and limited sets of golf clubs are available for hire. Caddies are available with prior arrangement. The complimentary use of the onsite gymnasium, coupled with a scenic swimming pool, will add that special touch to your getaway. The Lodge boasts 13 tastefully decorated rooms, all marked by welcoming warmth, a hint of intimacy and stunning views of the golf course and hills beyond. The Luxurious rooms are all en-suite, featuring spacious bath rooms with a bath, shower, twin vanity and toilet. Each room has its own private patio, opening onto the pristine landscapes and picturesque golf course. All rooms are fully air conditioned and offers limited DSTV channels. Culinary delights in the form of light A la carte meals are available from the Lodges' Clubhouse Pub-restaurant. Bushman Sands - the perfect golfers' getaway! ... more   less
