Known to be the flagship accommodation at Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, Bush Lodge is renowned for its legendary hospitality and unprecedented luxury. Overlooking a bustling watering hole and the vast, untamed African plains, Bush Lodge is a place of uncompromising high standards and personalised attention.
The Sabi Sabi Game Reserve has a philosophy of ‘yesterday, today and tomorrow’, which stems from over 100 years of impeccable safari experience. The history that this area is steeped in is reflected in the ethos of Sabi Sabi, as well as the style and flavour of Bush Lodge itself.
Each of the 25 spacious, thatched suites is air-conditioned and has its own en-suite bathroom, which boast outdoor, as well as glass-fronted indoor showers that provide wonderful views of the bushveld, as well as absolute privacy. Huge viewing decks and the private pools are ideal for relaxing, or for spotting the game that freely roams the area. The ultra-luxe Mandleve Suite is ideal for honeymooners or anyone looking for an extra something special. It boasts an open plan lounge, secluded pool and opportunities for private safaris, as well as in-room dining options.
Guest areas include two swimming pools, as well as enormous viewing decks that look out over the watering hole. Delicious meals are heralded by blasts on the kudu horn and are enjoyed in the open-air boma, underneath the vast African sky. Children are welcome at Bush Lodge and are well catered for at the Elefun Centre, where trained caregivers play games and provide insight into the surrounding bush and its plant, bird and animal life.
Early morning and evening game drives with trained rangers are taken in specially designed 4×4 vehicles, going deep into the bush in search of the Big Five, as well as the other diverse plant, bird and animal life that flourishes on the reserve. Take bush walks with an armed tracker and traverse the area keeping your eyes peeled for the more intimate aspects of life in the bush.
In between game drives guests can enjoy luxury treatments at the Amani Spa, or make use of the fitness facilities.
