We had the most amazing time at Bushwillow. Friendly staff and great service. We stayed in Green Mango Orange and it was very conformtable and spacious with everything you would need in a self catering unit. We had booked the 2 night safari special and everything was well organised. Alicia and her team do a wonderful job of managing the...

We stayed in Red Ivory and loved it very much. The room was very clean and private. We loved listening to the birds in the morning and even got a visit from some warthogs. We also enjoyed the evening walk with Ryan who gave us lots of information about nature. Breakfast and dinner were delicious and served in the bush....

Amazing lodge inside a park, you feel alone in the world with your own private pool :) You need to buy food before or revent them before if you want to eat in the main lodge. We did the night walk, it worths it !

No need to go on game drive when there are giraffe and buck and so much more right on your patio! Beautiful lodge. We stayed in the yellow wood room. The best part is having your own private splash pool to cool down after all your activities. Loved walking the trails through the farm. The walking trails are well marked...

A wonderful, relaxing stay. Simple, but stunning accommodation with delicious food. A great weekend Break, and close to Hluhluwe park. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

I regret not having discovered this place earlier. The whole experience was wonderful and the pictures don't do it much justice. I stayed in the boutique cottage and the private pool made the experience even more pleasant. Every single staff member is super friendly and kind and they made sure that I was well fed. Make sure to book the...

We stayed two nights in the boutique cottage. The house was very beautiful and very well equipped. It has a lot of open space and the bedrooms are very spacious. Only improvement we thought was that there is no aircon. There are fans in all the rooms which helped a lot. However the service didn't match the quality of the...

The cottage was very nice; had privacy, everything we needed and a nice view of a water hole. The starry sky at night was magnificent. We only saw a springbok and some warthogs, but didn't spend a lot of time in the resort to see animals. I wonder if the management and staff have recently changed; it seemed like all...

We hat a great stay in the bushwillow collection. But it was to short. We'll definitely come back. The accommodation and the staff was really excellent! The near to the NP and the corporation with the safari team is very good.
