Wildlife & Spa Resort of the Week🐒🦜🐘🐆: Sabi Sabi Bush Lodge at Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve in South Africa

Deep in the bushveld overlooking a waterhole and an open plain, lies a lodge that pulses to the rhythm of Africa’s heartbeat. This is Bush Lodge, steeped in tradition, vibrant and warm, the Sabi Sabi of “Today”.

With a history spanning over 35 years, the lodge has earned a reputation of a “luxury home in the bush”, service excellence and effortless personal attention. The conventional safari style showcases a vibrant and eclectic mix of furnishings and décor garnered from all corners of the African continent.

To maintain privacy and intimacy, the lodge has 25 suites in total including 2 Luxury Villas and the Madleve Deluxe Suite with each suite featuring en-suite bathrooms and al-fresco, glass-fronted showers, with wonderful views of the bushveld.

Bush Lodge has been sensitively designed to allow ample space to relax, unwind and savour the tranquility of the bush. The two swimming pools and large covered viewing decks overhanging the Msuthlu riverbed are an invitation to cool off in the filtered water or sit in comfort while spotting game at the well-utilised pan. An exquisitely furnished lounge, atrium and intimate bar area are perfect meeting places for friends old and new.

Bush Lodge’s executive chef Wilfred Mtsali, has a wealth of world wide experience and describes his food as ‘Contemporary African’. New international trends blend with traditional African fare to create a menu that is cutting edge yet comforting. The dishes range from South African braais (barbeques) to African mezze platters.

As an extra indulgence, the Amani Spa at Bush Lodge offers the ultimate African Spa experience. The perfect place to rest and relax, this haven of tranquility offers the ultimate African Spa experience. Indulge in holistic body, skin and beauty rituals, rejuvenating massages and soothing treatments uniquely designed to relax the spirit, harmonise the body, preserve youthfulness and enhance health and vitality.

The lodge is family friendly and children of all ages can enjoy the EleFun Centre, a fully-fledged children’s facility. Interesting environmentally themed activities, including hands-on ‘edutainment’ for several distinct age groups, are designed and supervised by qualified childcare professionals.
