The Bushbabies Elite Lodge: - Loose yourself in the tranquillity that engulfs you in natures most beautiful African bushveld. Feast your eyes on the many species of bird life that visit the waterhole for their early morning drink.

As the sun begins to set behind the majestic Drakensberg Mountains sip on your sundowner as you wait with hope and expectation to see a kudu, warthog or some other game call at the waterhole to quench its thirst.

One of a few properties situated on the greenbelt which boasts huge Leadwood, Maroela and Knobthorn trees and the mountains that can be seen in the distance. This is Africa at its best.

The Bushbabies is situated on one of the prime stands in the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate with huge trees, beautiful uninterrupted African bush and majestic Drakensberg mountain views. The Estate is approximately 680 hectare including a greenbelt area of about 400 hectare. It is well stocked with plains game including Giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, duiker, impala, zebra, wildebeest and warthog. There is a river bed running through the Estate with typical riverine forests. However due to it being dry for most of the year the game is mostly in the bushveld where they graze, browse and drink at the various waterholes.

This bush retreat enjoys the best of both worlds. Whilst it is located in the heart of the bushveld it is conveniently just a few kilometres from the town of Hoedspruit. It is just 16 kilometres from Hoedspruits Eastgate Airport which has daily flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town. We shuttle up to 2 persons with luggage free or we will arrange transport for you at an additional charge by prior arrangement. The location is an ideal springboard from which to visit the Kruger National Park, the Panorama Route or the other activities in the area.
