Bushwillow is fabulous. I like the design of the chalets "in the bush" with private swimming pool which makes your stay relaxing, comfortable and unique. Don't be surprised to hear the Warthogs rubbing the chalet's supporting poles during the night, seeking protection from a thunderstorm! The lodge has a nice restaurant which offers excellent meals with a local touch. The... More

We stayed at Bushwillow for 1 night, but we wish it was longer. From the moment we arrived the Bushwillow team were friendly, attentive & professional. Liz and the team prepared the most delicious meals and the cottage was private and comfortable. There were also great nature trails to do some exploring.

This was our second visit to Bushwillow and again we had a terrific stay. Our cottage was great with everything we needed including big private windows looking into the reserve so we could view birds and game right from your place. The food is excellent and the staff and service is outstanding. Bushwillow is located near several excellent game parks... More

Our room was big, very comfortable with large windows offering great view on the bush and the animals. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They made... More

My wife and I stayed at Bushwillow for two nights while we visited Hluuhluwe-Imfolozi Park and were in the Yellowood chalet. The chalet was absolutely lovely with glass panels floor to ceiling looking out into their little game park. It was really tastefully done. Although the chalets are self catering, we were able to eat in the Lodge. If you... More

Excellent place to stay, outstanding accomodation/Food, lovely Support in getting the Highlights of the Region organized, a must to visist and experience if you like to travel to South Africa. Even the Little park has enough Highlights you must see ( like the Spiderwalk during night ).

A brilliant 3 day stay with excellent accommodation, delicious food, fantastic trips and lovely staff. We were so well looked after. After a 6 hour game drive at nearby Hluhluwe, it was great to come back to our beautiful room and relax. Other great activities included the day and night guided walk with Ryan pointing out so many interesting things... More

It was really a nice stay. Warm welcome, nice rooms, lovely stay. The first day we had a diner only for two. 😀 I loved this place, really quiet and relaxing. The food was perfect. Good place to start our trip with.

We had a absolutely wonderful stay at Bushwillow. Everything about our stay was as promised or better. Bushwillow in Hluhluwe or (Shlooshlouie) using California phonics, was exactly what we hoped for in a lodge. From the comfort and beauty of the lodgings to the friendliness of the entire staff, to the thoughtful and delicious meals it was all beyond our... More
