We stayed at Balerno Bush for 2 nights. We felt very much at home. Ansie is a perfect hostess and we enjoyed a tasty breakfast and dinner. We certainly would like to visit Balerno Bush again.

What a pleasant stay! It is a piece of heaven on earth, where you do nothing else than relax. The set up and interiors are unique to a bush lodge. Are definitely recommended.

Wat 'n juweel is hierdie plek nie! Ingerig vir 'n uiters genotvolle verblyf en met smaak afgerond! Alles wat mens weg van die stad soek is hier en tog ontbreek geen geriewe. Anita, van die groep beplan alreeds hulle volgende besoek!

Presies waarvoor ons gehoop het - Eie aan die omgewing : Absolute rustigheid, pragtige natuurlike plante en bome, uiters netjies en gerieflike verblyfgeriewe. Bestuur and personeel doen deurgaans baie moeite om alles so gerieflik moontlik te maak. Baie goed geleë om beide oostelike en westelike dele van Mapungubwe daagliks te besoek. Heerlike kuier - beveel sterk aan.
