Ideal place to really relax. Lots of birdlife and animals as well. We stayed in one of the lodge tents. Very clean, beds are comfortable. The tent was spacious and had an en suite bathroom. There is electricity but some items run on gas, stove, fridge etc.. Friendly staff.

We visited the Retreat last weekend and had a truly fabulous time! We rented one of the 4 sleeper cottages for us, two 2 year olds and my mum. Plenty of space, well equipped but best of all is the fact that the cottage is about 1.5km from the "clubhouse"- in the middle of nowhere with lots of space, nature,...

I booked this accommodation 3 months before me and my daughters arrived. I have to say that I was impressed from the start. Soon after I made our booking, I was told that the bungalow that we had booked was no longer available, but, that we had been upgraded at no extra cost. On our arrival, and during our stay,...

intimate, small scale and tranquile place to stay. Hospitable and dedicated staff to welcome you. Sipping your coffee in the morning in front of your cottage, and see the animals passing by, gives you a truly African feeling. Just enjoy this pearl.

Had a great stay in the quiet surroundings of Bushveld. Relaxing watching with the animals at the pool and with "Braais" with Stefan. The Sundowners and night Game Drives were great fun, and I loved the trips we made to parks in the area. All in all a lovely place to be away from it all in so much comfort.

During our stay at Bushveld (we were there with six adults and two children of 2 and 4) we forgot the rest of the world. It started with a warm welcome by the manager Stephan who showed us the way to our luxury lodge tents. They were amazing! They combine nature with comfort and gave us all the possibilities to...

I have never been to Africa before, so we did not know what to expect. But when arriving at Bushveld Retreat our most beautiful thoughts came true. Besides the constant warm welcome of the caretaker Stephan, the beautifully decorated lodges and the delicious "braai" food it was an intense experience. Standing under the outdoor showing, locking eye to eye with...

Waterberg Bushveld Retreat is NOT one of those many parks that you find in South Africa. It's a real treasure. You can feel the bush and at the same time it's such a friendly and tranquille place to spend time with your friends or family. We were warmly welcomed by Stephan, the manager, and he made sure everything was just...
