DESCRIPTION

The Bush House – Madikwe Game Reserve
Safari isn’t just safari anymore…. And game lodges aren’t all alike. Every visit really does need to be special and every moment something to be remembered forever.
The Bush House is not your typical Game lodge. The Lodge is set in the malaria free Madikwe Game Reserve. It is an old farmhouse that after years of family laughter and happiness has been transformed into an inviting and relaxing residence that encourages guests to kick off their shoes and unwind.
 
What makes The Bush House different?
Perhaps it’s in the people who make you feel so warmly welcome, at the bar after your game drive, at the brunch table, or in the boma for dinner under the stars. We pride ourselves on really caring for our guests and being attentive to their needs. As an owner managed Lodge the personal touch is an integral part of our service.
Perhaps it’s in the sense of the bushveld. The dust of the elephant herds, the closeness of the rhino, the fleeting glimpse of the leopard… or the massive power of the buffalo coming down to drink at the waterhole within meters of the front lawn.
It could be the luxuries you enjoy. The sumptuous bushveld cuisine or the service so close you only have to lift a finger. Or maybe it’s more about the whole experience than a single sighting. More about the memories you made while you were one with nature as you pulled the bushveld around your shoulders like a blanket, and in a strange, familiar way you felt completely at home.
That’s why people come back to The Bush House. Again and again. For most of our guests it’s just like that, like coming home – even for the first time.
 
Make The Bush House your home away from home.

DIRECTIONS

Travelling time from Gauteng to the Lodge is approximately 4 hours

* From Johannesburg head north on N1 towards the N4 Toll Road.
* Take the N4 Toll road north west towards Rustenburg, Swartruggens, Groot Marico and Zeerust.
* Once in Zeerust turn right at the third stop street into President Street. There is a signpost on the left that says “ Madikwe Game Reserve/Gaborone” and an ABSA bank on the corner to the left
* Follow the R47/R49 towards the reserve for approximately 95km
* The first entrance to the reserve is Abjaterskop gate
* Pass that gate and enter at the next gate – Wonderboom Gate exactly 7km from the first gate
* Once you have gone through the boom there is a Bush House sign board about 300m along the gravel road. Turn left in here and travel through our gate. Follow the road to reception.
 
NB. Please watch the speed limit when travelling through the small villages as there is a lot of trapping along the R47/R49.

Please fill up with fuel in Zeerust as the small garages along the road to the Lodge do not always have stocks of fuel.

LOCAL AREA

The Underground Hide
An exciting addition to our offering is an underground hide that borders on the very edge of our most active waterhole.
A water point is located close to the front opening and elephants regularly drink from this point or walk right past the front of The Hide. The roof which is just above ground level is reinforced and can carry the weight of any elephant that might wander across the top.
The Hide is accessed from a path within the Lodge garden, or from the swimming pool, so guests can safely move along the walkway and into the tunnel without being seen by the animals and in complete safety.
The front of The Hide has an expanded metal grid which is completely open and out of sight but can be quickly dropped if anyone is feeling nervous.
The pathways, tunnel and hide are all lit at night so are available for use by guests 24 hours a day.
Those guests with walkers and in wheelchairs can also use The Hide as the walkway has ramps that ensure ease of access.
Viewing of all the visiting animals and birds close up is truly spectacular and offers a whole new dimension in game viewing.
On Safari
Game drives are conducted through out the year at optimum viewing times when game activity is generally at its peak, i.e. early morning and late afternoon into evening. The morning safari departs at sunrise, and the evening drive leaves late enough in the afternoon for guests to enjoy a bush sunset and the opportunity to view nocturnal animals after dark. The spectacular southern night skies, especially vivid during the winter months, provide guests with stunning views of famous constellations such as the Southern Cross, Orion in summer and Scorpio in the clear winter evenings.
Our Summers are traditionally very hot and wet with Winter being dry and cold. Hats and sun block are an absolute must as are sweatshirts and jerseys. The varying layers of all of these are dependent on the time of the year!
 
Seasons differ vastly in the African bushveld, but no one season can be rated above another, for each has its own unique appeal. Spring (September) and Autumn (April) are very short seasons and usually provide milder weather conditions and subtle changes in vegetation. Summer (October to March) tends to be hot, but the bush looks wonderfully green and lush.
 
Many mammals produce their offspring in the height of summer (December/January) and the youngsters are a special treat on safaris. Winter (May to August) brings with it drier, more temperate weather condition and the bush takes on a stark but beautiful appearance. At any time of year, your encounters with the wild at The Bush House will be very special and memorable.
