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...

Bushwillow is situated in a small game park with soft game i.e none meat eaters. There are walks to enjoy so you can walk along the zebras and giraffes. Amazing! We had half board and the food was tasty, especially the baked goods. The room was nice, clean and with big windows. The interior design was a bit old fashioned,...

Bushwillow is a perfect place to retreat to if you are needing a complete rest and get away from busy life. The accommodation is outstanding with attention paid to the smallest detail and the comfortable feeling of home with luxury. The 'bush' offers viewing of birds, flora and small wild life alongside the the larger giraffe. What a pleasure it...
