Good start location for Safari in Krüger area. Nice little lodge in a peaceful game resort close to Hoedspruit area. When ever you need something, you do have an excellent support by the management. We liked very much the Hat&Creek restaurant in town.

We loved the cleanness of the room, the Breakfast and the facilities as a whole. We would have loved to swim in the pool if the weather was permitting but we loved the outside shower. Incredible place and we will be coming back. The spa treatment was amazing too, would highly recommend it!

This place is one of a kind! Greeted upon arrival with hot towels, the owner Yvette is so welcoming and friendly! Her staff continue her high level of service, so accommodating and great cooks - both the breakfast and braai (African Barbeque) were delicious (the homemade croissants were out of this world). Our room was gorgeous and you're staying inside a wildlife refuge so you have a good chance of being greeted by them as well - we had a mom and baby antelope visit one afternoon. We booked all our activities (safari's and hot air balloon ride) through them and were so pleased. On all our morning activities we'd have a picnic basket and cooler packed for us with hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, coffee, tea and water. Cannot speak highly enough about Bushbaby River Lodge - if I'm ever lucky enough to go back to South Africa I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

The welcoming by the owner with white warm towels. The cleanliness of the rooms. The staff owner, Ms Nomsa and Mr Difference very friendly indeed. What was posted on the website is what we got and experienced. The breakfast with an option of juice, tea and coffee. Different menu's to choose from. Above all the welcome package for my girlfriends birthday was exceptional. I would recommend the lodge to anyone who loves nature.
