Where the Sabi Sabi story began

During the 1980s and '90s, the owners bought three portions of the farm 'Shaws' on which Bush Lodge was the first to be built. While the lodge has evolved over time, what remains unchanged is its welcoming atmosphere that sees guests returning time and again.

Bush Lodge is rare in that it’s one of a handful of lodges in the region that loves the company of young children. Each moment and detail has been carefully considered to make sure that every member of the family enjoys an unforgettable holiday in the bush.
