What Our Guests Say

Definitely in the Bush

These are self catering units that are quite spacious. The daily service was very good and it was wonderful to be out in the peace and quiet of the country. There was no heat in any of the units, but there are extra blankets, for those chilly nights. There was no internet and no cell phone service which added to the peacefulness.


We stayed over at Ndabushi in April 2014 on our way out from the Kruger Park. I was surprised at the size of the chalets, which were lovely, neat and clean. Large pool for the kids to swim, as well as a lapa/boma to have a braai in the evenings. We will definitely stay at Ndabushi again.

Serene, Well Organised and Comfortable


We were met with friendly staff members who willing assisted with the unloading of our vehicle and with the organising of extra table and chairs for our group of 21. We enjoyed the peaceful surrounds and heard the rumblings of the lions and barks of the hyenas. What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the bush.

Peace in the Bushveld

We stayed at Ndabushi a couple of times a year as a group and take over the whole of the accommodation. It is a great base for our activities in the area (Kruger & rhino conservation). The rooms are always clean and well equipped. We love the quiet and peace of this place, surrounded by big trees and The huge pool is fantastic to cool off in.
