At Bushwa Private Game Lodge you can still experience life on Earth as it was before humans intervened.

Nothing can prepare you for the sight and soundless movement of a stately giraffe, or the colossal bulk and deep, curved horns of buffalo herds grazing nearby.

Simply set off in our safari vehicle at dawn, to see what the night left behind and what the day ahead will bring. The Waterberg Region has a wide variety of Fauna and Flora and is home to an abundance of plains game and bird life.
