Bushbabies Lodge offers chalets and camping accommodation, and is situated on the North Eastern side of the Dinokeng Big Game Reserve.  The lodge boasts a lovely shaded lawn area and lush green gardens, away from the busy hustle and bustle of city life.  The lodge boasts a variety of self-catering accommodation options to choose from.

The luxury chalets include a family unit, honeymoon suite and all-rounder couples unit.  Each unit has a private boma.  The secluded honeymoon suite has a heated splash pool and is situated on the Big 5 fence-line.

The lodge also has tented camp sites consisting of dome tents with double or single beds, or an adventurous rooftop tent on 2 camping sites, which is a favourite among young explorers.  The tented camps are equipped with cutlery, crockery, a bar fridge, linen and towels, and each has its own private ablution and boma.  Spacious caravan sites are also available and each have their own private ablution and boma and are shaded, with electrical and water connections.

Certain meals can be prepared upon request for all accommodation units, at an additional fee.  Catered conferencing facilities are available.

An inviting communal swimming pool area, which includes a lapa with a view of the waterhole where wild animals gather and shaded braai island, is an extension of the friendly family atmosphere and can be enjoyed by all guests.

An honesty-bar tuck shop is a popular attraction so be sure to visit this shop at the lapa area for that sudden snack attack.  Firewood, bottled water, ice and firelighters are available from reception.
