Phalaborwa – Kruger National Park


South Africa is sure to mesmerise you and leave you with unforgettable memories. We will make sure you also have an exceptional accommodation experience.

Our rustic, spacious villas with beautifully covered verandas, are situated in an oasis of green and water. Here, you can relax in comfort, reminisce about the experiences of the day and enjoy the numerous birds who are sure to attract your attention.

Share your preferences with us. Would you like to keep your head cool in the swimming pool? Does a safari in the Kruger National Park appeal to you? Would you like to go on a day trip to the Blyde River Canyon or Magoebaskloof? Or, would you appreciate a grocery basket upon your arrival?

Are you unsure about anything, or would you like advice? No problem. Ingrid, your hostess, is always available to help you and share her experiences and knowledge with you.  This is another reason why you’ve made the right choice.

The location of our villas is strategic, to say the least. Restaurants and shops are a stone’s throw away, but more importantly still: the entrance to the world-renowned Kruger National Park is just 2km away.

We wish you a luxury escape!

What our guests are saying about us

‘Absolutely loved this place! Big rooms - great beds! Since I was a kid I always wanted to stay at this place and now grown up and being able to go back to my home town and stay here was fantastic and it did not disappoint. I've stayed all over the world and I must say this is one of my favourites!’

‘Such a lovely, spacious home with beautiful surroundings. We really enjoyed our stay and the kids loved the huge “garden”. And the best is it’s so close to the Phalaborwa gate. Would recommend it to anyone!’

‘What a fantastic place to stay, the house is big, very clean and inside it is just a beauty, me and my family (2 kids) fell immediately in love. It was nice to come home after our Safaris at Kruger (that is only a few minutes away) and find a clean home. We cooked a few times for ourselves. So we would definitely recommend this house to everybody. It is paradise on earth. We stayed 5 nights and near the resort is off course the Kruger park, then we played golf that is only 3 min drive. There is so much to do and see that 5 nights were actually too short for us.’

‘Es war ein traumhafter Aufenthalt in Eurer schönen Villa! Ihr habt die Villa sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und es sind keine Wünsche offen geblieben. In den nächsten drei Jahren werden wir uns bestimmt noch ein paar mal bei Euch einmieten.’

‘Wij verbleven hier 15 mrt t/m 30 mrt, een fijn vakantiehuis met prima voorzieningen. Het huis is smaakvol ingericht en is van alle gemakken voorzien, van heerlijk slapen onder de klamboe, tot vertoeven op de grote veranda met uitzicht op mooie natuur. ‘S avonds barbecueën op de veranda De lodge was voor ons dagelijks het vertrekpunt om er op uit te gaan maar ook ons rustpunt na bijvoorbeeld een Safari-dag, het was gewoon fijn om weer thuis te komen, zo voelde het aan. Kortom een fijne locatie om een stukje van Zuid Afrika te ontdekken.’

‘Our group of 7 had a great 3 night stay in this beautiful holiday home! It was our favourite of the four we stayed in during our visit to South Africa, very spacious and comfortable, quiet, with a charming porch for dining and reading, and classy regional ambiance and details (even better than in the pictures attached). It is very close to Kruger, and we had more luck in this area for animal viewing than we did in south Kruger. I wish we could have stayed longer, and would go back in a heartbeat. Would definitely recommend a visit!’

Ingrid and her husband were amazing hosts. The pictures don't do justice to the actual size of the house as it was much bigger than expected which was a great surprise. All amenities were there and the daily housekeeping really helped as we were a group of 7. Lots of activities close by and very close to the Kruger. Would recommend to anyone!

My family and I had a wonderful stay. Our Bush Villa was in a perfect spot on the property which offers a good amount of privacy. It's basically a home away from home as the house has everything one needs for a self-catering trip. The staff at Bush Villas are very helpful and communication regarding our stay was top class. I would definitely recommend.

Best Lodge in Phalaborwa! We received the warmest welcome upon arrival, we were updated on all weather and covid19 new restrictions situations. True hospitality at it's best. Loved waking up with the birds sounds and rain falling. Ingrid & John, thank you so so much for all that you guys do! The personnel were always friendly and helpful. See you again soon!!!

Cosy and affordable accommodation. Ingrid is super wonderful and made us feel extremely welcome on arrival. Will definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay near the Kruger National Park. Looking forward to our next holiday with Bush Villas on Kruger

Gasvrye mense, groot netjies vertrekke, skoon en het alles wat ons nodig gehad het. Ons is verwelkom met 'n bottel wyn, nadat alles verduidelik is. Vir die gashere was niks te veel moeite nie. Die huis was ruim met meer as genoeg spasie vir die kinders om te speel. Hulle het hul eie huisie bo gehad. Daaglikse skoonmaakdienste, lugversorgers, baddens en storte. Mooiste uitsig en rustig. Swembad was ook skoon. Perfekte rusplek.
