    "Whilst the main part of the the lodge is really nice and portrays the" bush feel" the river house by comparison was very disappointing.We did not expect a blockhouse with a flat tin roof in the middle of the bush.Inside finishes are rather old and shabby.On the plus side the decks and unique pool area are lovely,the accommodation is very clean,staff friendly and helpful, but I do feel my overseas guests missed something of the African experience.The album photos only show the best part.Also a bit disappointed that there is no self drive game viewing.We had a pregnant woman in our group and the walking would have been a bit tough"

    "Dit is een van die mooiste plekke wat ek al beleef het. Soveel waarde vir my geld gekry. Die olifants rivier is 5m van jou kamer af - die mooiste natuur skoon en die kamer was iets uit 'n tydskrif. Die diens self kon nie beter gewees het nie."

    "It's wondeful place! A group of wild Hippos at the river was really impressive. But the size of pool was too small to enjoy."

    "Bushriver Game Lodge is one of the best we've stayed in. The host Wessel is very welcoming and always helpful. Pity we never had the chance to enjoy drinks on the deck while watching the world going by because of our busy schedule."
