Bushriver Lodge, Hoedspruit
Such a Lovely Amazing Play To Stay
Wow! You don't need to stay in Kruger to see amazing animals and pay exorbitant prices. The managers here are absolutely lovely and incredible knowledgeable. Went on an incredible tour with them and saw lots of animals. The room was lovely and clean. Great food too. Yay! Would definitely come back and stay. Really really nice people! Oh, and the river right outside your door is awesome for animal watching!

One night stay
Nice for a one night stay. However no meals on site provided. Next restaurant 8 km.

Private bush hide-away surrounded by nature
Beatufiul bush hide-away not accessable to the general public. Large spacious and airy rooms. Surrounded by wildlife. Cotages build on the Olifants river with amazing veiws and sounds. Very clean, excellent service, manager amazing and check in process flawless. Self catering with full use of the excllent facilities in catering kitchen with each unit having it´s own grocery shelf and large fridge. Extremely clean throughout. Needs some maintenance on smaller things. Drain at our room needs serious attention.

Wonderful stop over on way to or from Kruger
This property is in close proximity to a campground, Hippo Pools and several other places to stay. It is off the highway and you go through several gates before you arrive.
