                          Excellent deck-view of the river ( will be sad in a dry season)Good communal kitchenNeglected bedding with a too-large- for -the-cover-lumpy-old -duvet and sad washed out linen was definitely not good value for the priceRoom not cleaned once in 3days, bush living?

                          We had an absolutely amazing stay at the Bushriver Lodge. The lodge is so well positioned, right beside the river, we loved spending time on the deck overhanging over the river, we loved relaxing there and watching the sunset or just relaxing in the warm African sun. The service we received was really amazing; they were so friendly and helpful all the time. We also thoroughly enjoyed the game walks through the bush where you could see some game. We had a fantastic experience and would definitely go back.

                          Brilliant establishment, brilliant staff, brilliant service, brilliant atmosphere and extremely beautiful scenery. I will highly recommend this establishment to others and will definitely be back to re-visit.
