Totally guest orientated! Very good value for money.
We stayed at The Bushbabies for 3 nights & 4 days and it was still too short! Even if we had complicated arrangements, it was no problem for them. We invited friends to join us for a braai, no problem. We asked for laundry services, no problem. We had a wonderful stay! I have never come across a guest house that is so neat and fully equipped together with service with a smile and from the heart. We have previously stayed in other Hoedspruit guesthouses, but we will never stay in another guest house whenever we go back to Hoedspruit again. Rodney, Cathy & Vivienne – thank you kindly for spoiling us! It is appreciated. Totally guest orientated!

Hey Cathy, Your accommodations are truly superb. The attention to detail is noteworthy (shoe brush in the cupboard and chocey). Neat and clean. I’ve spent my life travelling both here and overseas and your place fits in with the best of them.

Vergun my die geleentheid om vir julle baie dankie te se vir die onvergeetlike kuier by julle. Dit vas so lekker om by n huisie te kom wat werklik toegerus is vir n rolstoel. Ons is so spyt dat ons julle plekkie nou eers ontdek. Ons sal vir seker weer terug kom. Gaan voort met julle goie werk. Die verblyf is in n ander klas, Werklik 5 ster!!!

Dear Rod and Cathy,
Thank you for a lovely stay here. We so enjoyed relaxing here and exploring the Hoedspruit area. Vivian was amazing and we hope to meet you in person one day. Thank you again for your kindness and hospitality.

Love, Gary and Andra Phillips.

Thank you so much for the wonderful accommodation and the lovely chocolates. I really enjoyed the amazing view and exquisite animals/birds. I loved the sunrises and sunsets the most.

We had a very restful stay at the Bushbabies before continuing our journey home. The unit was very comfortable and spacious. Thanks to Vivian for arranging transport for us to go and buy some provisions at the Pick n Pay. Thanks also to Rodney who arranged a shuttle for us to the airport on short notice, despite not being on site. Wonderful service!! We will certainly recommend this little piece of paradise.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Comfortable, quiet and everything we needed. We were especially happy with the bird book so that we could look up some names. And nice to walk around (on the Estate), hear the birds and see the animal tracks. We hope to be back soon.

Dear hosts,
Although we only slept one night we felt 100% comfortable and safe. We slept like babies and enjoyed the little “gifts” so much. You know how to host guests and make them feel at home. (luckily we weren’t attacked by the leopards ha! ha!). Thanks so much for your hospitality.

Rodney and Cathy,
We arrived late and spontaneously at The Bushbabies. Unfortunately our stay was really short. But we enjoyed it. It’s so calm and we loved to watch the animals. I hope we can come back. Thank you very much for making our holiday so nice. And thank you Vivian for everything.

God bless you, Maria, Greta and Franzi,
