              This was our second visit to Bushbaby camp and we had a wonderful weekend there. Everyone was friendly, the rooms were clean and the service was good. We could enjoy visiting the game reserve knowing that our belongings were safe in our cabins and coming back to watch the bushbabies come down to eat in the evenings was so special. I would recommend Bushbaby camp as a good economical place to stay if visiting KZN and the nearby parks.

              From the warm welcome from the owner, Pim, to the clean and comfortable cabins, the well kept gardens and, of course, the feeding of the Bushbabies, we THOROUGHLY enjoyed our short overnight stay. It was perfect for what we wanted. We will definitely be back for a longer stay soon.

              Bushbaby lodge is an awesome place! It is not far to the Hluhluwe game reserve (about 30min). The staff is very friendly, it is clean, nice place to meet new people, it is quiet, you can eat there and we really enjoyed the swimming pool after a long day. I can just recommend that place.

              baie sentraal gelee na die KZN parke. Baie vriendelike en behulpsame werkers en eienaars. Die ablusie geriewe kan gerus na gekyk word, veral gedurede spits tyd -'n sepie by die wasbakke sal gaaf wees en ook 'n handoek reling of rakkie. die werkers kan gerus meer deur die oggend en aand skoonmaak gedurende spitstyd. Andersins 'n lekker veilige oord.

              We were supposed to go there over the December holidays but my husband got sick two days before our booking. They were very accomidating and allowed us to move the booking to over the Easer Period which was great of them. For the first couple of days we were virtualy alone in the campsite which was very peacefull and relaxing. The campsite did get a bit cramped once the easter weekend arrived. It would have been nice to have our own braai area instead of the communal braai. The abilutions could be improved, maybe a screen door infront of the entrance to keep the bugs out. Overall we had a grea...
