Hi Anzelle! apologies for the delayed response. The stay on The Blue Train and at the Taj Hotel were magnificent. Everything was first class, all the way. We are very pleased with the experience and will definitely recommend it to our friends and family, and I really appreciate your personal responses to my many questions. You made this experience completely understandable in advance, and I can’t thank you enough.
Ed and Ryann
We had a lovely weekend. The booking was perfect and your turnaround and response time was superb! Will definitely contact you again when planning bush break!
Thank you – we had a wonderful break in Namibia and very much enjoyed the whole experience. Transfers, accommodation etc. all were perfect and there were really no issues or concerns. I’d thoroughly recommend all the places we stayed, although for Swakopmund you really need to take advantage of the day trips to make the most of it!
Thanks once again for your heroic efforts in getting everything booked!
I wanted to thank you for the quality of your work. First of all you were very quick to answer me, that’s why we were able to book in Pilanesberg Park, and also the lodge was just perfect. I will definitely come back to you in the furture !
Hi Nadia / Refiloe
As always I have booked through BushBreaks and the service was excellent
Kapama Southern Camp can be recommended. We had a fantastic time with no complaints.
Thank you again and we will definitely book through you again for our next holiday
I wish to thank you for your great service and prompt responses to my mails.
We had a wonderful stay at Jaci’s Safari Lodge. Their attention to detail and superior service made us feel incredibly special.
I must say- Leopard Mountain Lodge– Very Special PLACE,they really go the Extra Mile, A Real Diamond!
I must also say- your company really is also up there,excellent Service,we will in future definitely come back to book more holidays and also refer possible clients to your website!
Thank you Nadia.
We had a fabulous time away, and will definitely be using your seamless professional offerings again!
We had a great time at Simbavati and would like to thank you very much for answering our questions and helping us with the booking. I will definitely recommend BushBreaks to other South African travelers.
I hope you are doing well. We had an incredible time on our safari at Jao Camp, Botswana and really appreciate all of your assistance in helping us with our reservation.
In terms of feedback for the camp, we have nothing but positive things to say. The food was excellent, the activities were extremely well organized and we had a private guide for the majority of our time there. We found our guide to be extremely well informed and personable. The staff were excellent and went out of their way to make us feel welcome and ensure that all of our needs were met. Our room was beautifully decorated and extremely private. It was an amazing getaway that we will not forget!
In terms of feedback for BushBreaks, we again only have positive things to say. We really appreciated your assistance in helping us to select a camp and the guidance that you provided. Further, your timely follow up and communication of any changes was much appreciated.
Thank you again
Just to let you know that we had the most awesome stay at The Oyster Box, and as always, the service from Bushbreaks was flawless.
Looking forward to our next trip to one of you great lodges.
Thank you once again for your excellent service and friendliness.
We had an amazing experience at Thanda Tented Lodge from the time we arrived to the time we departed. The staff were really warm and friendly, service and food was outstanding and our accommodation was out of this world. The game drives were absolutely magnificent, seeing the sun come up or set over the bush veld was truly unique and special. We were fortunate to see 4 of the Big 5 the Leopard eluded us once again. Morne our Ranger and Zakes our tracker was friendly, passionate, extremely knowledgeable and interesting, the two of them made our safari experience an unforgettable one, giving their best on every single drive.
We will definitely be contacting you again when we plan our next breakaway.
Thank you for everything you did, and so quick. We had no trouble anywhere and when we arrived at the gate they were already waiting for us, and that was all within half an hour after booking! thank you, thank you, thank you. Its this things that makes a break away just that much more special. No check in problems!! thank you.
The two days at Makalali Game Lodge was just as amazing and special, thank you to everyone there that did their best to make our stay unforgettable.
We had a perfect time at the Abloom Bush lodge & Spa and that the couple managing the place is absolutely lovely and showed a great flexibility.
I would certainly warmly recommend the place to anyone who will be willing to spend a relaxing time in a highly comfortable place in the surroundings of Johannesburg.
Have a great week ahead and thank you very much for your assistance,
We had an absolutely wonderful weekend at Oceana Beach & Wildlife Reserve. Many thanks for your kind assistance with the booking and arrangements. We will not hesitate to make future use of the services and discounts that Bushbreaks offer and have recommended it to our friends.
André & Christel van Zyl
Firstly, a huge thank you to you for being so wonderful, yet again dealing with you is such a pleasure!
Secondly, Tintswalo Manor House was wonderful. Although it was rather cold and wet, we still had decent sightings of game, and the people who looked after us added a very personal touch. They were friendly, attentive, and interesting. Our ranger (Darren) is exceptionally knowledgeable, and we came away having learnt a lot about the bush that we had not known previously, which is not always the case. Our chef (Chrizette) was wonderful, creating delicious meals that catered exactly to each person’s personal tastes. In all, a lovely experience, and we will definitely return!
I just wanted to let you know that we all had the most wonderful time in Botswana for Yana’s birthday. Both camp Tubu Tree & Seba Camps were fabulous and we were so excited to see a leopard at Seba Camp. Thanks for all the hard work getting us all there. Everything ran really smoothly and we had the BEST time!

Dear Doreen / Refiloe
Tau Game Lodge was phenomenal, thank you.
From booking with you to our wonderful break at Tau Game Lodge, all was done professionally and we loved it.
Thank you, Refiloe,
I only have positive feedback, the experience with you and BushBreaks in general was excellent and a pleasure to deal with.
We had a lovely time at Bongani Mountain Lodge as well.
Thanks again Refiloe.
Thank you so much. We had a fantastic stay at Makanyane Safari Lodge and will definitely utilize BushBreaks again! Everything from the booking process to general information needed was provided and you guys were always quick to respond and your service was amazing.
Thank you so much!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic stay at Ivory Tree Lodge. We did the booking through BushBreaks and I have to say that the service from both ends has been brilliant.
We saw loads of wildlife and also had the opportunity to see the lions feeding. The staff at Ivory Tree are truly incredible and extremely knowledgeable. We only stayed for the one night, but would most certainly return if the opportunity presents itself again.
The food was amazing and because it was our anniversary the staff lit some candles and made the room look exquisite.
Thank you very much.
Thank you for making all the arrangments so meticulously for the Forman Family at Shishangeni Game Lodge.
Your management of the booking and the detailed information was spot on, everything went exactly as planned and we had a great time.
Thank you once again and we will be back.
We had an absolute stunning time in the Ivory Tree Lodge.
The lodge and staff are amazing, the food even better, but the best were the game drives with a top ranger.
I will definitely be using BushBreaks in the future for my getaways as the service I received was the best.
Thanks again for all your assistance.
Your service was fantastic – can’t fault it.
You gave us the correct advise and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Royal Livingstone, Zambia.
We did the day trip to Chobe and it was unbelievable……. that is next on our list and we will defiantly use you again!
Thank you for once again showing that booking through BushBreaks is the only way to a great and unforgettable holiday.
We will be using your services again shortly as we want to visit Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in November/December.
Thank you once again.
Dear Refiloe / Nadia
Thanks, we had a fabulous time at Kapama River Lodge. I would recommend it, and I have already recommended to friends and colleagues to consider using BushBreaks. Your service has been outstanding, well done and thank you.
We had a wonderful time at Rhino Post Safari Lodge, thank you!
Thank you for your efficiency – it is always a pleasure to book through BushBreaks!
May I just say that as always the service from BushBreaks was excellent. The Outpost was great, especially the walks.
Hi Refiloe / Nadia,
I wanted to thank you for what was truly an unforgettable trip and experience to Vic Falls Safari Lodge & Chobe Chilwero, Botswana. I’ve used BushBreaks before within South Africa and this was the first time in the rest of Africa. The overall service delivery, quality of accommodation, punctuality of all transfers etc. was truly exceptional and I would happily recommend friends and family use the service. At every location and or activity the booking was well organised and quality irreproachable. In particular I was impressed with the ease of transfers from Zim to Botswana, boarder control etc. Both lodges were great especially Chobe Chilwero which I have already recommended to my parents.
Thank you soooo much for all your help with organising the weekend for us!
It was absolute bliss, I would highly recommend Makanyane to anyone and everyone looking to go to Madikwe Game Reserve… A truly amazing experience!
Thank you for all your help and for going out of your way to help us, we really appreciate everything – so thanks again.
We had a wonderful weekend at Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway.
The staff were fabulous (especially Ursula), the food was excellent and the room divine. I would definitely recommend this lodge.
Another thank you to you and Bushbreaks. As always you always deliver, and that is why we will continue to use you in the future.
Thanks again Anzelle.
Desire & Simon Greenberg
Thank you so much for your help with our booking, as always Bushbreaks service was excellent!
No words can describe the fantastic time we had at Kapama Karula. The accommodation was 1st class, the service was perfect and the food was fantastic.
They upgraded us to a luxury suite which was out of this world. The game drives were fantastic as was the ranger.
We have been to several private lodges, but Kapama Karula stands out as the best.
We will definitely go back!
Wow wow wow – what an amazing time we had.
Your service and efficiency was 10/10 and we will definitely book again through Bush Breaks.
Mkuze Falls Game Lodge – although a bit further, it was worth it as the area is lush and green.
Food and service – could not fault it.
Thulani, Victoria and Emmanual – on the ball, friendly and efficient.
The rooms – so comfortable and the “special” night with rose petals and poured baths with champagne was a real treat!
THE best was definitely the Game drives. Norman and Njubalano are a true asset to the game Reserve. They are friendly, knowledgeable and go the extra mile to please the guests.
We went on 3 game drives and saw everything bar the leopard which is seldom found. These guys need a good mention and we are so blessed to have seen so many animals.
Thank you again Amanda,
Marc and Susanne Wright
Our stay at Strandloper Ocean Boutique Hotel was absolutely wonderful and relaxing. We really enjoyed it and will definitely recommend the hotel to others.
Your service was amazing, extremely efficient and so timeous. Your communication was always professional and very accommodating. I had to change the initial dates that I had booked and I requested twin beds and you accommodated these so easily. Thank you very much for your excellent service and I will definitely do bookings with you at Bushbreaks again.
I had a wonderful time at Kapama River Lodge. Thank you very much.
All the arrangements met my expectations. The lodge is excellent and I would easily go back again, staff courteous and efficient.
The service excellence of Bushbreaks is what usually makes you my first port of call when I am ready for my next break.
Thank you again.
No doubt I will be back shortly.
Yolande van Biljon
The weekend at Black Rhino Game Lodge was great, we were really pampered, the food was good, the room was really luxurious.
I must compliment the lodge owners, their staff are courteous, knowledgeable and very accommodating, I include in this the support staff like the room cleaning staff.
I would not hesitate recommending both your service and the lodge itself.
Once again, thank you for your professional handling of our booking.
Thank, Refiloe / Nadia
We had a lovely time at Leopard Mountain Lodge.
Thanks for your assistance – I have been dealing with Bushbreaks for a number of years now, and have only had positive experiences.
Coral Zyl Coral
Your service was excellent and your recommendation of Imbali Safari Lodge just as good. Thanks, we will continue to use Bushbreaks as the service we get is very good.
We had a wonderful time at Komati Tented Lodge. We definitely would like to go back there again.
Thank you for your excellent service.
Dear Refiloe / Nadia,
We had an exceptional time. Madikwe Safari Lodge is just fantastic and even more the service from Bushbreaks was great as well.
We have scheduled to visit another great Game Reserve in September 2015, for sure we’ll book via Bushbreaks.
Special thanks to Refiloe, she was a big help in the quotation phase as we made several changes due to family reasons.
Dear Refiloe / Nadia,
We had a wonderful time at Rhino Post Safari Lodge.
I cannot fault your company as your service was again outstanding and perfect in everyway.
Refiloe, as always, assisted me with every need in a very professional manner.
I will most certainly make use of your services again in future, hopefully as soon as possible.
Thank you again for everything.
Good day Amanda
Firstly, I would like to extend a very big “thank you” to you and the team at BushBreaks. I cannot fault your service and the consistency that I have experienced.
I was referred to you by one of my colleagues and I was truly impressed.
The standard of the accommodation at Bakubung was very good and we felt at home, it is a gem of a property and the staff were great. We have lots of good memories to cherish.
For the kids, friends were made and we thoroughly enjoyed the Boma Bush Braai!!
Thanks once again
Dear Refiloe / Nadia
We have been booking through Bushbreaks quite a number of times. I must say that it’s been an absolute pleasure booking through you. Your team has been able to offer us the best value and perfectly understand our needs.
Thanks a lot for arranging everything and look forward to booking once again.
We had a very good stay at Tintswalo Safari Lodge.
Everything from the time we made the enquiry with Bushbreaks (yourself), until the end of our stay at Tintswalo Safari Lodge went very smoothly.
Service, accommodation and game viewing was all very good
All the very best
We are back from Livingstone!
We had the most amazing weekend. Everything worked out perfectly. We were met at the airport with no problems and when we got to The Royal Livingstone Hotel we had two rooms that were adjoining. The hotel also gave us a High Tea voucher for the four of us for our anniversary which was lovely.
The weather was sunny and warm and the falls were spectacular! We loved that you could walk to the falls. We took advantage of some of the activities and also really enjoyed just relaxing on the Sun Deck and around the pool.
Thank you for your help putting together this last minute trip for us! It really was a weekend to remember…just awesome in every way!
First of all I would like to thank you and other members of BushBreaks for making the initial enquiry, enquiries and subsequent reservation for Black Rhino Game Lodge so easy and painless.
The actual stay at the Black Rhino Game Lodge was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. The chalets were large and very well appointed, the staff extremely attentive, friendly and welcoming. The meals/food again were excellent, as was the quality. The guide, Shayne, was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Thank you again and we will certainly be contacting you in the future.
We had a fantastic time at Umzolozolo Safari Lodge and could not recommend them more highly. Similarly the experience with BushBreaks was faultless and we have already passed your details on to a few family and friends.
When the budget allows you will certainly be hearing from me.
Hi Nadia / Refiloe,
We came back from Imbali Safari Lodge with a great experience & lot of memories, not only did we see all the big five several times during the two days, we witnessed two very special moments which are probably once in a life time…
1. Two lions shadowing a group of wild beasts & zebras for some time & then finally chasing for a kill… not successfully though… ( truly a Nat Geo show becoming live )
2. A pride of lions,… one male, four lionesses & …..nine cute cubs. Cubs sat right in front of the Land cruiser & were watching us.
Thanks for your help all over again ! I would surely get back to you again.
Just want to say thank you very much. I always feel I get great service from BushBreaks and the lodges you advertise are always fantastic.
Komati Tented Lodge is a fabulous lodge, and would highly recommend it to anyone. Been there a number of times and it never ever ceases to amaze.
Thanks for all your help.
Hope to book another trip soon.
Thank you so much for organizing such a wonderful break away in the Okavango for Peter and I.
We had the most fabulous time. All the logistical arrangements went off perfectly.
Combining the 2 camps worked well. The flood had just been coming through the Delta as we arrived at Jao Camp and we saw the change in water levels daily. As a result the bird life was incredible. We’ve never seen so many fish eagles! The camp staff, mainly South African, were very welcoming and looked after us morning noon and night.
Vumbura Plains was completely different – far more modern in looks, operated by local Botswanian’s, but every bit as good in a different way.
We now have lots of photos to sort through, and many wonderful memories. Thank you for all your effort in making this trip possible.
We look forward to our next trip.
With best wishes,
Everything was very smoothly and excellently organized and managed. We had a brilliant time and would recommend BushBreaks as the agency for Safaris for ourselves and others in the future.
Thank you so much, Kapama Buffalo was very nice and would recommend it. Your service was also excellent.
Thank you, we will definitely make use of BushBreaks again.
Dear Refiloe & Nadia,
Thanks very much, we had a wonderful stay at the Last Word, Constantia. The guest house and service was impeccable and luxurious.
The booking process with BushBreaks was very simple and efficient.
Many thanks for a wonderful experience.
Thanks a million! We had an awesome weekend at Tshwene Lodge, great service and atmosphere.
It was a pleasure booking through BushBreaks. Hassle free. Thank you, Anzelle you were always helpful, efficient and friendly. Much appreciated!
Christa van Deventer
We had an awesome time at Simbambili Game Lodge. Food, service, room, game viewing was awesome – we saw 3 different leopard over 4 days as well as 2 big prides of lion. Our Ranger team – Doug and Service were awesome!
Your service was fantastic and we are already think about our next trip.
Murray Mc Donic
I can’t thank you enough for your very professional service as well as a fantastic break at Mkuze Falls Game Lodge.
We had a wonderful time, the staff were fantastic the accommodation superb. I am glad I managed to find you guys and will always come to you first for any travel arrangements I need to make in the bush and will indeed watch your website with interest.
Just a tip for any of your other clients, the bush walk was absolutely fantastic and I highly recommend it for any of your other clients, it truly brings the bush into your soul as well as being healthy and informative!!!!
I can never fault BushBreaks; the service is fantastic and efficient. We had a super time at Bongani Mountain Lodge, thank you. BushBreaks was perfect.
Thanks again, and warm regards,
Dear Refiloe & Nadia
It was our first BushBreaks booking and I must say we were thrilled with the experience. We will most definitely make use of your services again. Your immediate attention to our enquiry, and your detailed communication and instructions, directions etc made getting to Madikwe Hills very easy. Madikwe Hills definitely lived up to our expectations from the images as portrayed on your website. The units of course lack nothing, and are simply amazing in their setting, with the Tamboti trees growing through the floors and roof, and boulders in the expansive bathroom! The private plunge pool was essential and we were glad it was so clean! The staff were superb with their attention to detail, and the cuisine was excellent. The lodge manager was fantastic in mingling with guests and being always visible and available. We would most certainly like to return to this special place!
We had great experience at Impodimo Game Lodge and definitely, we will continue using Bushbreaks.
Thank you for the way you attended to our matter, you were available all the time when we needed any help. Thank you once more.
Mabitsela Elijah Ramonyai
As ever it is a pleasure booking through BushBreaks. I use you frequently and I am always grateful for the efficient and speedy service supplied.
When I have had odd requirements in the past (like 2 very elderly ladies who cannot walk far) your staff has succeeded in accommodating my requests over and above my expectations. Thank you all.
Perfection is something that is very rare nowadays, but let me tell you that you are exactly there.
Starting from your booking system until the issue of all the vouchers, nobody could request more care.
My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Impodimo Game Lodge. Something that we’ll remember for ever.
Elephants walking in front of the chalet was common to see. All the personnel was very friendly and helpful.
The game drives were superb with our ranger, Cornell very attentive in order to make sure that our drives were something to remember.
Thank you very much.
Alberto & Tia Locatelli
Dear Refiloe / Nadia,
We had a wonderful stay at Makanyane Safari Lodge. We will book again with Bushbreaks, everything was perfect.
Thanks and warm regards,
Hi Nadia / Refiloe,
We had a wonderful time at Arathusa Safari Lodge.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, delicious meals and the rooms were awesome, especially with the private pool.
The game drives were also amazing, saw amazing animals and sightings and the ranger most knowledgable on every subject.
We will definitely make use of Bushbreaks in future, as we have done in the past.
Thank you and kind regards
Thank you for the excellent service! We had a marvellous time at Leobo Private Game Reserve.
Thank you for your prompt and excellent service. We did indeed have a wonderful time at Rhulani Safari Lodge in Madikwe. The service was intimate, friendly and very accommodating. The game drives were out of this world and Chris, the manager and our guide, was fantastic – he really went the extra mile to see to it that we got to see the animals on our wish list and to make us feel very welcome and at home.
We have come back with many happy memories and some stunning photos of animals, scenery and people. Here’s my favourite of Samson, the 3 year old leopard we were lucky to see twice.
Jacky, Mike and Jenna Du Plessis
Thank you, it was a pleasure dealing with you and booking through BushBreaks, I’ve already recommended it to all my friends.
Shibula Lodge and Bush Spa was lovely! The food the accommodation and the staff – wow! We felt like royalty.
Thank you, can’t wait to book the next trip!
Thanks so much for everything. It was the first time I used BushBreaks and you were absolutely superb. I will definitely use you guys again and recommend it to others.
Have a good day.
I came back from Clifftop Lodge yesterday and I just wanted to thank you for helping us choose such an amazing place for my Fiancé and I. We absolutely loved it and didn’t want to come back.
I have given your details to all my friends so that next time that book somewhere they go through you…. Thank you so much for your amazing service – I’ll definitely go through you every time.
We had a lovely weekend at Komati Tented Lodge, the weather wasn’t too kind, but we made the most of it. The Lodge was superb, and the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating.
I have used Bushbreaks a couple of times before and highly recommend the feedback and service.
Thanks again for your efforts in making it another great break.
Thank you for your great service. This was probably the 4th time I have used BushBreaks and have always been impressed by the level of service. I will definitely use you again in future.
Mike and I had the most amazing time at Kwafubesi Safari Tented Camp. It was everything we expected and more!! Mike had the best birthday and he always had a smile on his face!
Our game ranger, Greg was awesome. He really made an effort for us to see all the animals we could. Food and all staff were also great. I have heard that it’s a game ranger, staff and company that makes or breaks a holiday, I can say without a doubt our time at Kwafubesi was definitely made with the help of all the staff there.
I would really like to thank you for all of your help with the arrangements. You really were so helpful with all the arrangements and you never hesitated to make all the planning as easy as possible for me. You were absolutely great and any client of yours will be lucky to have you make all arrangements for them.
I am sure we will be booking through BushBreaks again soon.
We really had a great time at Tshwene lodge, the staff were great and the location perfect! The lodge really did bend over backwards for us and made sure we had the best time. Even though there was another couple there we felt like we had the lodge to ourselves.
We were very lucky to have some unbelievable sightings. On the friday we were lucky to see a male lion on a kill. On the saturday we saw 3 female lions and to top that off we say a Cheetah and 5 CUBS!!! We were even luckier to see the Cheetah and 5 cubs again on our way out on Sunday, this time on a kill.
It was the perfect weekend and destination for my Dads Birthday.
In short , Pafuri Wilderness Trail ROCKS !
Steve and Rhodes were the consumate , passionate, professional wildlife guides . They afforded us incredibly memorable sightings and close – up, calm encounters with buffalo and elephant alike . Their overall bush knowledge was mind boggling . The whole trip was a series of magical encounters and experiences due to their uncanny bush knowledge and intimate awareness of the region’s terrain . Ellen and Patricia the smiling lovely camp ladies did a miraculous job of keeping the entire camp ship – shape as well as producing 5 star gourmet meals .
The only complaint we have is that the final day’s departing Questionnaire did not allow us to give a rating of 15 out of 10 overall !
Best wishes to you Francois and The Bushbreaks Team!
Guy and Lyn Havers
Hamiltons Tented Camp was DIVINE, thank you – even better than I thought it would be. Will definitely keep on booking our bush breaks with you!!
We had a fantastic weekend at Umzolozolo Game Lodge, good food, great hospitality, and wonderful hosts.
Thank you for your excellent service, we will certainly use BushBreaks again,
Good morning, Francois
We had a great time at Hamiltons Tented Camp and will definitely return in the future!
The staff is very well trained, the food is first class and the accommodation is outstanding! They have very knowledgeable guides and nothing is too much trouble!
All in all, I can recommend the camp quite highly and tell you that they compare very favourably with other luxury lodges that we have visited in the past.
Thank you for the great assistance you gave us with our last minute booking-you made it easy for us and we appreciate the help.
We had the most wonderful weekend at Tuningi Safari Lodge. The staff were so friendly and so attentive, the rooms were beautiful, the games drives were amazing (our ranger was entertaining and very well informed), the food was SPECTACULAR!!!! I honestly cannot fault the place, it was such a relaxing weekend and we will definitely be back but next time with our little one!
Thank you again for your amazing service and recommendations. You have been wonderful.
Thanks for the smooth booking of our weekend away.
It was an awesome weekend at Clifftop Exclusive Safari Hideaway. We saw lots of game, very blessed with what we saw. Clifftop staff were great, always smiling, helpful and friendly. The suites were amazing and super clean every day. The food was ridiculously too much though, especially breakfasts…. Wow… I just couldn’t eat that much.
I would recommend it to anyone as an awesome luxury stay – a fantastic luxurious spoil.
When I need my next holiday, I will definitely be looking at your BushBreak specials.
Thanks again for all your help .
Dear Nadia / Refiloe
Many thanks, everything was absolutely 5*, right from making the reservation to our stay at Phinda Forest Lodge.
We will definitely use BushBreaks again and hope to return to Phinda again soon!
Many thanks and kind regards
What can I say my booking experience with you was effortless and easy.
Thank you so much for your efficiency.
We had an extraordinary time in Marataba Safari Lodge, the staff was amazing!
The food was spectacular, game and bush also spectacular!!!
Thank you for making my experience one of a kind.
The weekend was really, really special!!!
We look forward in booking with you and BushBreaks again soon.
Warmest and best regards
Hi Nadia/ Refiloe
Thank you for your very excellent help with our booking for Hamiltons Tented Camp. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our three night stay there – the service was truly excellent, there is nothing that we could offer any constructive criticism on, and nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly staff. They were pleasant always, very helpful and on hand for our every wish – what a delightful group of people there. The game rides were fantastic, we saw the elusive leopard with its cub, plus so many other animals – we were truly spoilt. Our ranger, Sean, was most knowledgeable and made our six rides most enjoyable. We will recommend Hamiltons without any qualms, and will definitely be making another visit there – not sure when, but it is certainly a place to return to regularly.
Next time we are looking to get away for a few days, I will certainly be in contact with you at BushBreaks.
Many thanks for all your help.
Thank you – the breakaway to Tshwene Game Lodge was perfect. Very enjoyable and all arrangement ran smoothly.
Thank you for your assistance – will certainly use you again in future.
We were extremely impressed with the entire process, from the initial booking with yourself to the final trip home. As usual, TAU GAME LODGE was fantastic and the staff were extremely pleasant and efficient.
I would like to personally thank you for arranging a fantastic weekend away.
Our stay at Shepherd’s Tree Lodge was truly wonderful. I highly recommend the lodge. The rooms and facilities are lovely, the staff incredibly friendly and helpful and the whole experience a pure pleasure. Thank you for your assistance in booking the trip. You were immensely helpful and provided efficient service. It is greatly appreciated. We will be sure to use BushBreaks in the future!
Thanks very much – we had a fantastic time and Camp Shawu was wonderful. We will definitely use your services again next time we want to spoil ourselves like this!
Thanks again and keep up the great service!
Thanks for the motivation and all the effort you put towards our trip. Every time we turn around we are in awe. Arrived in Zambia today and caught the sunset at the falls. Sabi Sands, Simbambili Lodge blew us away. Saw the Big 5 in all their glory. Two different prides of lion, one with a giraffe kill. Cheetah, wild dogs, leopard with impala kill. Buffalo outside our door. The ranging team and staff were top notch. Kids are blown away, as are Sarah and I. Unbelievable bonding time for the family. We are eternally grateful.
Todd and Sarah Brooks.
Thanks for everything you arranged!
We had the most unbelievable weekend at Impodimo Game Lodge. Food was excellent, the staff were amazingly hospitable and the game viewing experience beyond amazing! Even though we were blown away by the game viewing, we were more blown away by the value and the great experience at the lodge.
Michelle and I have travelled all over and to supposedly much more “upmarket” lodges … Impodimo Game Lodge stands out for us!
Your excellent service and extra touch also added to our fabulous experience … thank you so much!
We are back in the USA now. Our stay at Kirkman’s Kamp was fabulous. The lodge is excellent, the staff very warm and welcoming, the food was out of this world and the game viewing was incredible.
We certainly recommend BushBreaks as a travel advisor and also recommend Kirkman’s Kamp as a destination in South Africa.
Thank you for your assistance. Everything in our trip went off without a hitch.
Rick and Kate Baker
Thanks a lot for the superb weekend spent at Kosi Forest.
Fantastic service, food outstanding and staff excellent.
Helge & Ulla
Just a quick thank you for the effort you made in organising Madikwe Hills Lodge, the honeymoon suite and bush picnic. It was quite honestly better than I could have ever expected, the staff were just unbelievable in their friendliness and professionalism, game drives incredible and food/location out of this world. The picnic was fantastic (could not have asked for more) and all in all a weekend that could not have been more perfect.
Please extent my thanks to the management at BushBreaks and Madikwe Hills for making this weekend what it was!!
Fantastic service from BushBreaks. I will be coming back for more!!
We had a wonderful stay at Hamiltons Tented Camp, the lodge was superb and surpassed all our expectations.
We hope to go back and visit again in the future.
Thank you to for your great service.
The Last Word, Franschhoek was excellent! Manager Conrad made us very welcome and nothing was any trouble. Highly attentive and friendly. We had a wonderful weekend away. Highly recommended.
Jackalberry Lodge was great as usual. Karolien and Tom go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and nothing is too much trouble for them. We had a great time and saw a lot of game including lions mating right next to the vehicle! All in all was a great two days! Next time will definitely have to go for longer….!
Thank you for everything again this year!
Thanks for your prompt and professional service. Thanks too for going the extra mile and arranging an early check-in for my parents at Camp Shawu.
We had a spectacular time in Camp Shawu!
The scenery was breathtakingly beautiful with hundreds of hippos as permanent residents in and around the dam and ever changing scenery with herds of elephant, buffalo, zebra, waterbuck, wildebeest etc etc that came to the dam to drink.
The game drives were superb, with our knowledgeable and funny game ranger Simon, who did his very best to show us what the concession had to offer; plenty lion, every day, leopard with cub in tree, civets, hyena x 4, by the car whilst we were having our sundowner, herds and herds of buffalo, elephants, you name it, this part of the park is teeming with game.
Food and drink were excellent, the service friendly and efficient and the accommodation very special, good bed and lovely outdoor shower with plenty game to view.

The Blue Train & Thornybush was a wonderful trip. It was so well organised, I know it is all in the planning and it takes dedicated people to make it happen!
Please keep us posted on any other exciting up and coming trips you have planned especially if the train is part of it.
Thank you for organising my trip on The Blue Train & Thornybush. We had a wonderful time at Thornybush Game Lodge, all the staff were fantastic – especially the guest relation ladies. The whole experience was perfect with just the right amount of interaction.
We had amazing sightings of Leopard close up – my first, the rangers were very knowledgeable and great hosts. We made good friends with the others people on our drives with lots of laughs and excitement. I will definitely be going back to Thornybush Game Lodge soon again.
The Blue Train was a great experience, we had great service and good food. It is most definitely a great way to travel.
Once again thanks to all for organising the trip.
I’ll definitely be using BushBreaks again, Kwa Maritane was good, facilities were good, staff were friendly, no complaints there, really nice spot.
The friendliness of the staff was outstanding, I’m impressed …
Thanks again for your help.
Had an amazing time Amanda. Bert and his team are awesome at Tambuti Lodge. Could not have asked for more. Thanks for all your help. Well definitely be using bushbreaks.co.za again.
Thank you for the professional manner in which you handled our reservation.
From my first query you were attentive and helpful.
I had looked at other sites, but found you and your site most helpful.
We had a superb stay and could not fault Madikwe Hills on anything. It is a fabulous lodge and we had a very good holiday.
We had a wonderful trip , both at Jackalberry Lodge and on the Blue Train. The entire experience was not only highly enjoyable, but characterised by excellent service in all respects, and we complement you on your professionalism and attention to detail. We have recommended BushBreaks to our friends, and we ourselves look forward to using your services on a regular basis. Many thanks.
Thanks so much – we had an awesome time on The Blue Train and Thornybush! Everything was well organised making it a very pleasant trip. We look forward to doing something like that in the future.
Impodimo was wonderful. Such a beautiful lodge and we all can’t stop raving about the food. Cornel/Lynnea do an amazing job. The chalets are really done well and we enjoyed having a wood burning fire and both an indoor and an outdoor shower. I imagine we would have also enjoyed the pool during a warmer season. We are so glad we went with your recommendation. There is truly nothing they could have done better. The park in general was also spectacular.
Thanks again for your help and expertise.
We had an amazing time at Madikwe Hills and Makanyane and will definitely make use of BushBreaks again.
Thank you very much for all your assistance, I really appreciated it and was very impressed with the service.
Have a nice day.
Thank you so much, really enjoyed this break away at Clifftop !!
I appreciate all the quick responses and information I received from BushBreaks, as well as the recommendations given.
I had in mind exactly what kind of getaway I wanted and BushBreaks was able to give me great options with great prices !!
Will most definitely be contacting you again for my next break
We were very happy with our choice of lodge, Elephant Rock Lodge in Nambiti Game Reserve. The staff was friendly and helpful and our game drives were excellent. The accommodation in rondavels with swinging chairs and outside showers was simple but thoughtfully designed; the food was very good and the shared meals were fun.
We are happy to highly recommend the lodge.
The services of BushBreaks was efficient and trouble free.
We loved our stay at Hamiltons Tented Lodge. The service was amazing and the game viewing even better. We would love to go back to Hamiltons and I am recommending BushBreaks to everyone I know. I will use BushBreaks again.
Thank you so much for your email! We had a truly incredible holiday and stay at Imbali Safari Lodge.
I appreciate all your assistance in arranging the trip. The lodge was truly spectacular and our guide, Stefan, was brilliant.
We all had a wonderful time and will highly recommend BushBreaks service as well as the lodge!
Lee Ann Botha
Service received from yourself and BushBreaks was exceptional and I will most definitely be making use of you again and will be spreading the word about you guys to all I know.
Once again, many thanks.
It was fantastic. The food and service at both Thornybush Game Lodge and Simbambili Game Lodge was impeccable, we ate and enjoyed ourselves like kings. Your service in organising this all for us was fantastic and definately will recommend you if any friends of mine need advise, so thank you very much for the help on everything.
We wanted to let you know how we mush enjoyed our stay at Jembisa this last weekend.
The Jembisa staff really went way beyond the call of duty to make our stay special, and the manager, Jane, was really attentive to all our needs. The accommodation is gorgeous, the food was truly outstanding (really five star!!) and the staff were very professional and friendly. We had excellent game drives and a truly memorable outdoor lunch overlooking the veld. I would really recommend Jembisa very warmly, and I would consider it good value for money. Thank you so much for sending us there!
I’ll keep this short and sweet, the whole booking experience was easy and efficient, I’d happily recommend BushBreaks to my friends.
As for Motswiri Safari Lodge – it was an unforgettable experience. The service was exceptional, accommodation was great and the game drives were fantatstic.
Can’t ask for more!
My wife and I had an amazing time at Ivory Tree Game Lodge, thank you. Thanks to you and the Bushbreaks team for facilitating the process. We would most definitely recommend BushBreaks and Ivory Tree to anyone. This is now the second or third time we booked via BushBreaks and as always, it was fantastic.
We had a really good holiday, thanks.
The booking experience through BushBreaks was excellent and I would use your services again.
Madikwe River Lodge was very pleasant, we very much enjoyed the food and the location. The game drives were brilliant and all the staff were very helpful and friendly.
The service you provided was excellent.
We were picked up at the airport and driven to Impodimo Game Lodge where we had an excellent 3 night stay with excellent guides on the game drives. The accommodation was perfect and the quality of the meals was excellent. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We were collected from Impodimo and driven to the airport in plenty of time to catch our flight to Cape Town.
We were very pleased that my son had recommended BrushBreaks and Impodimo to us.
Many thanks Francois
Thank you the break was great. Your service was excellent and the Tau Game Lodge experience was wonderful. Staff and facilities were excellent.
Nicolette van den Eijkel
Umzolozolo Safari Lodge was a great recommendation by BushBreaks – we all had a great time, saw lots of animals and the staff, food and surroundings couldn’t have been better. Thanks
We appreciated that you contacted us to check how our stay in Hoyo Hoyo Lodge went. It was wonderful. Unfortunately, the bush was very thick due to the recent rains so we couldn’t observe the animals easily, but the highlight was we saw wild dogs…
We definitely will use your services again.
Thanks again for the wonderful service.
Tim & Gulbun Quinlan
As always your service was brilliant, we can’t fault it in any way. You are always excellent at getting back to us in a quick and timely manner and very polite. Not to mention, sending us the best deals when we are looking for our ideal holiday.
The same goes for Komati Tented Lodge, Ulrich and Arline are honestly one of the best hosts we have come across and their personal touch makes the camp. They make everything special with little touches here and there that make you feel like you are the most important people in the camp. I would recommend Komati Tented Lodge to anyone and everyone.
We had one of the best South African holidays we have ever experienced at Jock Safari Lodge. The process of booking through BushBreaks was effortless and easy.
Just wanted to thank you and the BushBreak team for such a special night away at Komati Tented Lodge.
We usually book through another company who also offers local last minute rates, but I must say that your service is so much better than theirs! So glad we found you!
Please please extend our thank you’s to the team at Komati Tented Lodge – this lodge is really much more than we expected!
The accommodation was truly gorgeous (best beds ever!) and really was also quite unique (namely, the tin shower!). The staff and service were fantastic and friendly, game sightings were great (and we didn’t even go on a drive, just saw 2 sightings of rhino on the road in!!).
On the whole – just devine – they will be seeing lots of us in the future to come!
Good afternoon Petra,
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Mabula Game Lodge – the game drives, the meals, the accommodation were all to our satisfaction.
All our arrangements were conducted with the utmost professionalism and efficiency.
I will definitely be using BushBreaks again in the near future for further trips.
Thank you so much for organising our trip to Chapungu Luxury Tented Lodge! We had such a wonderful time at Thornybush and we were so lucky with our game sightings! I will definitely book any future luxury bush holidays directly with you, through bushbreaks.
Thanks again for your awesome professional and speedy service.
The weekend stay at Oceana Beach & Wildlife was fabulous and great value for money. What a super establishment! We were well taken care of and the service was superb. Thank you for making it all possible. We will definitely utilize BushBreaks for our future holidays.
I have booked a game lodge through your company with one of your agents, Petra Ulrich. I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for all the help that she has given. The process of booking our accommodation was very easy due to Petra’s helpfulness as she was extremely understanding and patient through the lengthy process of going back and forth between emails in order to secure a game lodge for our holiday. Not only was she efficient with her replies and enquiries, she was also very informative of the different game farms and areas we were enquiring about.
I will recommend her to my family and friends in the future. Please send on my appreciation and gratitude to her.
Thank you very much for arranging our trip to Victoria Falls.
All the arrangements went really smoothly. The hotels (Zambezi Sun and The Kingdom Hotel) were perfect for a family and right by the Falls on both sides.
We were really pleased we chose to experience both Zimbabwe and Zambian sides.
We really appreciate the superb service you gave us and will certainly utilize your company again should the opportunity arise.
Thanks and Regards
Dear Nadia / Refiloe
The time in Madikwe Hills Lodge was AMAZING!!!
Thanks for world-class service provided by Bushbreaks, will definitely use you again.
We had a wonderful time at Kwafubesi Tented Safari Camp, everything was arranged perfectly.
I will no doubt be using Bushbreaks in the future.
I just wanted to say a huge big thank-you for helping us arrange this weekend away. The service you gave in finding the right lodge for us was amazing and your recommendation was spot on. We had the most incredible time at the Makanyane Safari Lodge, the accommodation was exactly what we wanted and all the staff couldn’t do enough to make sure we were comfortable. We had the most amazing game drives and I am very fond of wild dogs and even had the privilege of seeing an almost kill (I was in fact very relieved that the animal got away).
Thanks again for everything you did for us. We really do appreciate it
I just wanted to thank you once again the weekend was unforgettable and you were 100% on the mark in terms of the place and how luxurious Madikwe Hills Lodge is. I loved every minute of it and I was glad I listened to you and chose that place.
We will definitely be contacting you again soon for future holidays.
Thanks once again and I will be in touch with you again soon.
Thank you – we had an awesome weekend. Impodimo Game Lodge is fantastic, and we saw some amazing game, with ellies drinking from the pool and wild dogs chasing down a young wildebeest.
From our perspective, everything was well-organised and ran smoothly.
Thanks once again for organising such a great deal for us.
Maureen van den Heever
The entire weekend at Simbambili Game Lodge was amazing. We saw four of the big five in the first game drive and the next day we saw the leopard. We actually saw five different leopards during the weekend. The game ranger (Pierre) was extremely knowledgeable and taught us a lot. The waterhole suite was also delightful as I could see the animals while I was lying in bed. All in all, it was a wonderful weekend. A picture of two leopards attached.
René van Wijngaarden
We would like to thank BushBreaks , specifically Refiloe who made the booking for Oceana Wildlife Reserve for us .
It all went very smoothly from time of contacting BushBreaks to getting our voucher for the reservation . The discounted rate was a great bargain for us and the stay at Oceana was magnificent from Game Drive to Suites , staff service and cuisine . Highly recommend Oceana.
Will definately go through BushBreaks again .
Karen and Dario Sesia
The trip was marvellous! Everything was perfect to the tee. I definitely want to return to Lions Valley Lodge and use your services again.
Thanks so much!
Thank you very much for the effort you’ve put in our reservation at Madikwe River Lodge.
I appreciate the fact that you have replied to our enquiries so quickly. Of course it also helped that your quotes were about the amounts we had in mind
I like the new look of your website, by the way.
We will definitely be in contact with you again the next time we travel to South Africa (or surrounding counties). Also we will without any doubt recommend you to any of our friends and colleagues who are thinking of travelling to South Africa.
Hopefully we will be in touch very soon as we love South Africa very much and, like I’ve said, we appreciate your assistance in our travel plans.
We have just returned from our few days at Nedile Lodge and just wanted to say thank you so much for recommending that lodge. It was great!
The setting is breathtaking, the lodge was spotless, beautiful, stylish and very well appointed ! One of the highlights was the exceptional service! Everyone was so obliging , helpful and genuinely friendly.
Our Game Ranger, Barend was amazing ; an exceptional driver with incredible knowledge and a passion for the bush unlike anything we have ever experienced.
We will always recommend Nedile whenever we can as well as you , Rhona at Bushbreaks for assisting us with this reservation so professionally.
Irv and Robyn Shatenstein
Everything was great, I really enjoyed Ivory Tree Lodge. Petra from BushBreaks was extremely kind and helpful, answered all of my boring questions with patience. She even contacted me regarding strike on N4 highway on the day I was travelling. Keep up the excellent service!
I’ll definetely recommend BushBreaks to anyone travelling to SA.
Kay and I had the MOST wonderful weekend at Tambuti!
Lindy and the staff went out of their way to make Kay’s 70th birthday very special.
The lodge itself is beautiful as was our room. Lindy organised us a private dinner on our patio while we went on the game drive which was a big surprise for Kay!
On Saturday at high tea Kay was surprised again with a lovely birthday cake and the 6 other guests joined in by singing
‘Happy Birthday’, which was great!
Then on Saturday evening after the game drive we were treated once again to a private dinner on the upper deck with
balloons, decorations etc – wow!!
The whole experience was wonderful and Kay and I would like to thank BushBreaks and you for organising this special
celebration- all our expectations were exceeded!
We look forward to booking another BushBreak holiday!
With many thanks and kind regards,
Eve and Kay Davies
The Outpost was great with spectacular views, like being in an eagle’s nest. Very enthusiastic ranger and so many interesting birds.
We enjoyed everything. Simbambili’s game drives were outstanding with lots of leopards, superb food and terrific rooms. Just perfect.
A superb and seamless weekend, thanks. We’ve been to Ekutheleni several times before and as always, the visit did not disappoint. The staff are wonderful, the camp well-appointed and comfortable, and the game viewing was excellent including a superb sighting of a cheetah with her three-month old cubs attached.
The booking through BushBreaks was effortless and simple. All in all, another excellent experience, which we will repeat whenever we can.
I just wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely amazing time at Tuningi Lodge and Madikwe in general.
I hope that sometime in the future we will be able to return for another African holiday and rest assured that I am telling everyone about our trip and BushBreaks.
Thank you for your help in arranging our holiday.
Our feedback – Rocktail Beach Lodge was everything we wished for and a whole lot more…, the people, the lodge, the activities, the food … all absolutely wonderful!
As for Bushbreaks – you guys were perfect – you replied to my email enquiry quickly, gave us the best price (I also got a quote from another provider), followed up with all the info we needed. I have recommended you to everyone too!!!
Hope to have lots of other opportunities to travel with you
Dear Yaseera / Refiloe.

Thank you for the superb service we received from Bush Breaks we will definitely use the company again! We have been to Umzolozolo before and we love it, its really an amazing lodge and we couldn’t fault a thing.
We had a wonderful time in Simbambili! The accommodations and staff were top-notch and we couldn’t have asked for better guides and trackers on the drives. (Lazarus, one of our guides, and Mpumps, the tracker, were superb!
Thanks much for the much-needed support in planning this trip. You’ll certainly get my recommendations!
The whole experience was fantastic. From start, being the booking with BushBreaks, to finish, being the trip itself, Monwana Lodge, Thornybush….it was all amazing.
Good Day Petra
Thank you again for organising my trip to Hoyo Hoyo Game Lodge, my husband and I had such an amazing time and will definitely be recommending this lodge and your service in future. The staff there are also so friendly and accommodating, it really was such a pleasure. Thank you.
Thanks so much!
I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks for the great service from Rhona Katiah who assisted with back and forth queries and dates. Top service and highly appreciated.
Thank you All very much for the help I had in making my booking for Kirkman’s Kamp and for the extremely successful visit.
I had a fantastic time at the Lodge and loved everything…..Game drives, accommodation, hospitality, food and fellow guests.
Petra who did my booking was excellent and so was the assistant, Neleen who helped me on the Saturday to confirm the booking.
I must congratulate you on a successfully run company.
Thanks again for a superb trip.
Marataba was absolutely brilliant. The location of the park is stunning with the backdrop of the mountains and we had 2 really good game drives. Thanks again for your help in booking.
The entire experience was spectacular.
I was happy with Jamila & Clearwater Lodges, as well as the service I received from yourselves as the agent.
Thank you very much, I will definitely use the service again
Mhondoro Lodge was wonderful, staff were warm, friendly and welcoming. The service was very good, also the food. The rangers were full of knowledge and we learned so much from them. They were very professional. The lodge itself beautifully decorated and well situated. We had a wonderful weekend away.
This was our first time booking with BushBreaks and I’m happy to say it won’t be our last! Rhona, you have been very efficient, professional and your recommendation about the lodge and selection of it was great. No hesitation whatsoever when I say I will definitely be in touch and my friends too as I will recommend you to others!
Thanks again and have a wonderful day
Our trip to Clifftop was amazing and memorable.
Thanks again to you who made it all possible!
I will most definitely book all my future bush breaks through BushBreaks!
Matthew and Megan had an absolutely amazing time at Hoyo Hoyo..!!
They found the place to be wonderful, the people to be extremely friendly and have both said they would love to go back again.
Thank you so much for your assistance with this booking and we will definitely make use of you in the future.
Thank you again for assisting us with booking Marataba. We had a wonderful weekend! The game-viewing, accommodation and food were fabulous (“faultless” is what Richard said), and I think it makes for a really special weekend away. The fact that you have a large private concession to yourself (no other lodges) and the 3.5 hour drive from Joburg also make it very attractive.
We really enjoyed Bongani Mountain Lodge:-good food, comfortable bed, stunning site, very hospitable staff.
Thanks very much, you guys were great to deal with.
We had a splendid time and will be giving Tambuti Private Lodge a 5* rating on trip Advisor.
We will also mention the excellent booking service received from you.
Thanks and we will definitely use you again.
Keith and Sandy
It was a truly memorable experience at Thandeka Game Lodge and one that I would recommend ( I already have) to anyone looking for a Bush Break.
I also have to commend you and the team for your exceptional service and commitment to ensuring that we had an exceptional customer experience when dealing with you. It was a seamless and feedback was prompt and relevant.
Thanks a ton for your arrangements in making this a memorable weekend.
To Gary and the staff of Impodimo Game Lodge – we wish to say thank you a 100 times over, The attention to detail and sensitivity that they displayed in dealing with very different clients was superb. All I can say is that I will definitely be making use of your services in future and I will without any doubt go back to Impodimo.
Alvin van Staden
We had the most awesome time at Impodimo Game Lodge.
Every part of the the experience was outstanding, the food , the people , the accommodation etc . My hubby and I can’t wait to return and we will be sure to tell our friends and family about you guys and the Lodge ,.
Thanks so much,
All I can say is that booking through Bush Breaks is an absolute pleasure…..it is done efficiently & Bridget is great..
Will definitely use you in the future!
Thanks & Regards,
Just a short, but BIG thank you for helping Craig with the Honeymoon arrangements. Thorneybush was divine as ever and on our first night they pulled out all the stops with petals, candles, lots of bubble bath and Champaign.
The rain hounded us for the whole of the Saturday and followed us through to the game lodge – but it didn’t dampen a thing !
Craig is now an adamant supporter of BushBreak Reservations . He says that he has never been away where things run like clock work and the bookings are all perfectly done.
Thank you again.
WOW WOW WOW WOW the safari was everything u said and MORE, thx for a great holiday and a top service and all under the pressure of time!! You are the best and I sure know where I will come to next time !
A wonderful time was had by the family and our guests for whom it was a great introduction into the South African bush.
At this stage there no further plans for game farm visits but no doubt they will be back on our minds in the new year and we will be sure to use Bush Breaks.
It’s my pleasure. As I mentioned to Crystal, main reason for booking was not just the price but also the PROMPT reply of my enquiry!
Have a nice day. I hope this Festive Season will be a prosperous one for you!
We all had a wonderful time and really enjoyed Jaci’s Safari Lodge.
Janine and Crystal were very helpful and I most definitely would not hesitate to contact them again.
Dear Alison and Refiloe
I am sad to say that I am back at work after a very relaxing and great break.
I would like to send a special thank you to the both of you making our booking to Clifftop Lodge so smooth. Being in the travel industry myself I understand what pressures you are under and I was extremely impressed with the level of service I received from you both.
Clifftop Lodge was amazing. I have been to my share of game lodges and so far I think that Clifftop Lodge is definitely the most beautiful setting I have ever seen in the bush. The staff there truly made my husbands birthday one to remember.
Once again, thank you for your excellent service and I am certain that we will be booking another bush holiday with you.
Hope you both have a great day.
Many Thanks & Kind Regards
I’m not sure who you report to, but do me a favour and forward this to them please.
We travel a lot and I just want to let you know that your service is the best that I have yet received. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing through you, and rest assured, I will be using Bush Breaks and hopefully dealing with you again in the future.
Thank you so much,

It was filled with fantastic memories and Tinga Lodge is just the most special place run by a very special lady Paula.
Thanks and regards
Laura and Jeremy Franklin
Good Morning Bridget
Our trip was the best traveling experience of my life, and I have been lucky enough to go to many places. Your service was first class, and Dulini was absolutely exquisite. Words can’t explain what a wonderful experience we have had. I would like to thank you and your company, as well as all the excellent staff at Dulini for a truly unforgettable experience.
This was my first ever trip to the bush (can you believe it!) and Sam and I have now decided that we will be doing this at least 4 times a year. I will be contacting you in February for another bush experience.
Thank you, and warm regards

Our stay was amazing – our game ranger Coert was excellent and definitely went the extra mile for us to see the animals. In fact we saw lion, rhino, elephant and leopard all in one day. Unbelievable! In fact all the staff were very good.
Natasha, you have been an absolute star and the service given has been 100%. We will definitely use Bush Breaks again for our next visit to the bush.
Many thanks once again.

Hi Crystal/ Kishani
Thank you for all the arrangements, it such a pleasure to receive such professional and friendly service I will definitely use and recommend Bush Breaks.
We had a fantastic time at Ivory Tree Lodge it will be a get away that we will remember for a long time to come. The staff at the Ivory Tree lodge went out of their way to make Gavin’s birthday a memorable one. The lodge, the food and the service was beyond our expectations.
Dear BushBreak Reservations.
Thank you for the message. We had a wonderful trip and the whole experience was amazing.
The service received from Crystal was fabulous – she was very professional and informative, and of course the prices were great, making the trip affordable and enjoyable. Overall I was very impressed!
Thanks again, we will be sure to make use of your services in the future.
Hi there, Crystal
Yes, we did have a fantastic time and Motswiri Lodge was superb – food great, staff great, ambience great, lots of lovely unexpected surprises such as boma dinner, singing and a birthday cake!
Thanks, your service was really efficient and your website will now be our first stop when planning trips.
Just one thing – they weren’t expecting us for lunch on Wednesday but, when we arrived at 1pm with a few hungry young men in our party, they very kindly moved high tea forward and that was more than adequate.
Kind Regards and thanks again
Thank you very much for your mail. We had a superb time in Simbambili Game Lodge, will absolutely go again. The lodge, the staff, and the whole experience has been a real treat for all of us. Great advice from the team at bush break. Thank you.
Thanks a lot for the dedicated service, efficiency, and your professionalism. The Marataba planning was smooth despite the time challenge. Your recommendation was spot on. Another guest assisted by you also spoke highly of your service. I wish to share this with your advisors. Can you fwd me an email address. All the best in your future career, and keep the good work. Greetings, Manqoba
We did indeed have a wonderful time at Motswiri Lodge. The game viewing was excellent: the staff were fantastic; the accommodation and food were great and all in all we had a throughly enjoyable experience and we would highly recommend Motswiri Lodge to anyone wishing to have an outstanding bush experience.
Please also thank Natasha Patel, from your office, for her excellent service to us as well. It was always a pleasure dealing with Natasha as she was informative, efficient and helpful at all times
I just wanted to send a huge thank you for all the assistance a great advice you gave with reagrds to bush getaway! We had a awesome trip and were spoilt rotten by Mhondoro!, Feeling very relaxed and ready for busy few weeks. Will be in contact when ever we want a bush break.
Thanks and have a great day.
Everything went well. No problems at all. The staff at Rhulani were great and we will probably return at some point…..time permitting. Crystal was excellent with her booking and information update prior to us travelling.
We enjoyed it very much
We had a lovely weekend – thank you for all your help! Your service was great and we will definitely use you again.
Hello Crystal and Monique,
Thank you very much for arranging our Getaway to Madikwe. We had a most enjoyable stay, and Impodimo staff treated us like royalty. Our chalet overlooked the waterhole, so we had a constant stream of game coming in to drink. They also have 5 lion cubs, of about 4 months old, and we found them on a kill one evening, with 2 lionesses. Some really amazing viewing! We also followed the pack of Wild Dogs, their markings are so amazing.
We were delighted with your attention to detail, and would look to you in the future, when we plan another Bush Break.
All the best,
As always your service was outstanding. Jembisa Lodge was the ideal spot for our meeting; the staff are a great asset there.
Hope u are well. We had a fantastic trip – staff @ Nungubane were awesome. The lodge & the service exceeded all expectations.
I will definitely use your services in the future.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
Clifftop Lodge is the most amazing place. It is so beautiful and peaceful. We were treated extremely well and we do indeed have many memories. I will tell all my friends about Africa and reccomend that they contact Bush Breaks. If I ever have a chance to go again I will be in contact.
Thanks for all your help.
Thanks for your interest in our feedback.
We had a wonderful time at Djuma Vuyatela, the personnel were really efficient and they went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. I would suggest you keep this lodge in your portfolio and advise your customers to go there.
Besides, I would like to thank you for your efficient handling of our reservation considering the short notice between my request and our trip. When we go back to Southern Africa I would be happy to arrange accommodation with you again.
Our trip was very enjoyable, thank you – apart from the weather and not much anyone can do about that! The Ivory Tree Game Lodge was delightful and the food and game drives were excellent.
Booking through Bush Breaks was excellent. All our emails and queries were answered promptly and you were most helpful.
Many thanks and best regards,
There are no words to describe the wonderful time we had at the Nkomazi Game Reserve. Thank you for all the effort you made to make sure the reservation was in order.The highlight of our weekend was taking a bath outside, that made everything extraordinary and couldn’t help with click click of the camera!
We’ll call again for the next safari vist.
We had a wonderful time. Simbambili is lovely – the accommodation is very good, the staff warm and extremely hospitable and they have the absolutely BEST lady running their little spa; her massages are incredible and we all went to her and unanimously voted her tops. The leopard sightings were unparalleled and everything was just perfect.
Many thanks, and we will definitely be contacting you again when we are looking for a bush break.
Thank you Refiloe for your excellent service…much appreciated.
Am writing this on behalf of Justin and Lauren who are back in Australia, and who report they had the most amazing time at Impodimo – have seen the photos and am quite envious, I will try to get there one of these days.
As I was the one who did the bookings, I would just like to commend you on your friendly, efficient and helpful service, and it seems as if everything went without a hitch. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends.
Thanks so much
Carol de Wet
We had a wonderful time and Mhondoro Lodge was an excellent recommendation. It exceeded all our expectations and we will definitely use Bushbreaks in future. You not only provided us with excellent service but also gave very good advice!
Thank you very much, and we look forward to using your services and visiting Mhondoro Lodge again in future.
We had the most awesome time at Chapungu and returned to Joburg with heavy hearts. Thank you for the professional service that you offer. We will definitely use Bushbreaks again.
Our weekend was really lovely. Buffalo Ridge is a very pleasant and easy-going lodge, comfortable and warm (thank goodness) beds and they went to a lot of trouble to ensure we were happy, warm and well fed; the food was outstanding!
On Saturday, as predicted, the weather took a strange turn and it first drizzled for a while and then rained but cleared up at about 2.30 p.m. It had been decided to hold the concert at Tuningi (grey, heavy cloud cover and COLD!) and even though it would have been lovely under the stars, it was very special and cosy in the lounge area of the lodge. He chatted, sang and played his heart out on the guitar, accordion and had the back up of 2 of his band members – amazing and totally worthwhile.
Thanks again for all your organization and help to make it so good.
We again had a fantastic visit to Jock Safari Lodge. Little Jock offered something different which we enjoyed tremendously. We can recommend Jock Safari Lodge with no hesitation. Will speak to you soon for our next Bush Adventure. Thank you again for your friendly and competent assistance.
Speak to you soon.
Thanks we had a great time at Thandeka Lodge!!
Will definitely be using you guys in future.
We had the most amazing time at Kwafubesi. The lodge, staff and scenery really make it a little piece of heaven.
I would like to mention that the level of service that I received from Refiloe your consultant was quite amazing. At the same time as contacting bush breaks I also emailed a number of other agents. I must tell you that your level of efficiency and your brilliant specials are not even comparable to any of your competitors. You guys are one of the few that are getting it right.
Thanks so much and we will definitely be using you in the future,
My partner and I did indeed have a lovely stay at Clifftop Lodge. All the arrangements went very smoothly and we got what was advertised. I will definitely recommend your website to my colleages.
Thank you Kishani
I would like to say that we enjoyed the weekend immensely. The staff at Cheetah Plains Lodge were absolutely outstanding and they could not have done more. They were friendly and helpful and our guide Greg was the best bush guide I have ever been with. The attention to detail in the lodge was excellent and we would recommend this place to anyone, and maybe go there ourselves again one day.
Please pass this message on to them if you like, or use it in any way you deem fit. They deserve it.
Just wanted to thank you for helping me arrange this 2 day break for us and our friends at Simbambili Game Lodge.
The lodge is lovely, the staff and food were great and the game drives perfect. Definitely recommend again.
We had a great time at Jembisa and your company did a great job hooking us up. Thank you and I will most definitely use Bush Breaks in the future and will also be recommending it.
We had an absolute amazing time at Madikwe Hills!!
They were extremely helpful and friendly, also did a stunning job to help me organizing the proposal to my girlfriend. The moment was so special when I asked Mari to marry me, she immediately said yes and the champaign popped behind us – absolutely amazing!
Also a big thanks to you for assisting me with this booking, you were extremely helpful and friendly – will definitely make use of you guys the next time we want to travel somewhere.
Thanks so much, we had an absolutely wonderful time at Komati Tented Lodge, from the food to the acommodation, the staff and the setting, it was all fantastic!!!! I would recommend to everyone. It was an unforgettable experience!
We had the most wonderful stay at Little Jocks, it was a truly great break, we only wished that we had time to stay longer. Most things were top class, a lick of paint in the rooms was needed, but of very little consequence when taken into perspective with everything else. The service of everyone, but especially of John and Raymond was outstanding, the food was terrific, and the game viewing really good. Value for money this camp was outstanding and I know we will never be able to visit the Kruger and stay in the normal accommodation again.
We will definitely be using Bush Breaks again, your service was exemplary of what good service should and can be. Thank you once again Kishani, we will speak soon.
Thank you so much for helping us at such short notice. Your service was exceptional. As for our stay, I am truly lost for words. It was phenomenal….WOW! We’ll definitely be going back to Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge!
Once again, THANK YOU! We had a blast!
Exeter River Lodge was amazing and we had a fabulous time. Again, thanks for your prompt, efficient and helpful service, and your meeting the very low price was an added bonus – thanks for going that extra mile!
To whom it may concern
I know that most people follow up on bad service but often neglect to acknowledge good service.
Today I want to express my gratitude and appreciation for service that goes beyond excellent. (That is very rare in today’s world.)
The person that this compliment goes to is Kishani Chetty. She has been extremely helpful, polite,courteous and highly efficient.
I wish to thank her sincerely and in the future I will only be speaking to her.
Sorry for only writing this mail now but things have been quite hectic. Michelle and I would like to take the opportunity of thanking you for all your effort in putting together the Botswana trip. We really looked forward to the trip and it is seldom that your trip matches your expectations. On this occasion the trip exceeded our expectations!The accommodation, game viewing and food was out of this world. Best of all, everything was organised superbly leaving us to just enjoy the trip. Thanks again. Botswana via Bushbreaks will now become an annual trip for us. Like I said to the one camp manager as we left “in life you only have good or bad days” – on this trip we only had good days. Thanks again. Will you please forward this mail to your manager as I do believe that excellent service should not go unrecognised.
Advocate Bastiaan Boot
Thank you for your speedy response and it is really good to see a company unconditionally sticking by its promises, it does not happen very often.I certainly will be using your company for our future bush trips.
Once again, many thanks,and I can assure you my colleagues and friends both locally and abroad will also hear about your company and excellent service.
Our stay at Makanyane was amazing and we couldn’t fault them on anything.
Thank you for all your assistance.
Feedback for BushBreaks – brilliant service, website – cannot fault you on anything.
Sunet de Kooker
The 3 of us would like to thank you for your assistance organizing this week-end at Kwa Maritane. Everything was perfect! We really enjoyed our stay there and will recommend your company to any of our friends.
Thanks a lot again.
Thanks for your email and I am back home now but just to let you know that Nambiti Hills Lodge was just perfect! Fantastic game drives, wonderful food and the accomodation was extremely comfortable and luxurious! They even ran a bath for us to return to after the evening game drive!!
We saw all the big five and had some amazing sightings and close up views of many animals living in the wild. Our Ranger, Ross, was incredible and performed his job with ease, experience, knowledge and we felt safe with him.
Thank you for assisting in this booking, we will certainly recommend you to our friends!
We had an absolutely incredible time at Komati Tented lodge. The service was impeccable and everything was just excellent – we didn’t want to leave!
Thank you for your help and your wonderful service too, we will definitely be using Bushbreaks again – thank you!
Thank you Refiloe,
We had a wonderful time; we’ve never been disapppointed in either the Welgevonden or with BushBreaks and this experience just confirmed the great luck we have had with both.
We had a wonderful time at Komati Tented Lodge and enjoyed every moment.
The personal attention, warm friendly staff and divine food made it a special weekend.
The lion we saw at Komati posing for us………..AWESOME!!!!!!!!
We will go back there again if we can.
Thanks for your efficient and prompt service too, it is appreciated.
Thanks for all of your help in organizing my trip. All of the arrangements you made for me worked out perfectly. Sabi Sabi Selatai exceeded my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend BushBreaks to anyone.
We had a fantastic experience at Camp Shawu and will be making use of your services in the future
We were very pleased by our stay in the Imbali Safari Lodge. These three days were wonderfull. We certainly will recommend your service to other people.
When returning to South-Africa we’ll certainly book for another stay in one of your breakaways and then on time, not a few hours before the flight. Thank you very much fot this unforgettable stay.
Hugo, Renate and Aura
Firstly thank you to Natasha and everyone at Bush breaks for helping me choose an appropriate place to go for such an amazing time. Impodimo was incredible and we really had an amazing time. I’m sure I will be using you guys in the future to find somewhere new to go.
Thank You and Kind Regards,
Wow wow wow
I have been to many private game reserves, Motswiri Safari Lodge, your service and every part of the experience was absolutely fantastic,well done and thank you.
Impodimo Game Lodge was just amazing …….. I’m not sure which word in the Oxford dictionary to use besides just awesome!!!
The staff, accommodation, food, setting, hospitality, tranquil, etc, etc …….. was 10 out of 10. Our overseas guests just loved every minute of our stay.
We will definately be going back and hopefully soon. Thank you to all the staff at Bushbreaks for recommending Impodimo and making our stay a hugely memorable experience.
Kind regards to you.
Thanks, we had a fantastic time and the service from Refiloe, Bush Breaks was top rate! Shibula Bush Lodge & Spa was amazing and we had incredible sightings like for example, a lion chasing a cheetah from a kill – fab!
It was end to end fantastic and your staff were awesome, a special thanks to Crystal.
It was a memorable and special occasion at Simbambili Game Lodge and we were very very happy. We will certainly use Bush Breaks again and recommend the service when ever possible.
Thanks very much
Good day Refiloe,
Thanks for your email.
We have a fantastic time at Thandeka Lodge! Our stay was made very comfortable and really got to unwind at the lodge. The staff were great and thoroughly enjoyed the food and game drives.
Thanks to Bush Breaks and to Refiloe for all the assistance I received with the booking – will definitely be making use of you guys again.
All the best,
I am really glad you guys emailed me, I must extend our gratitude for the service received from Bushbreaks in particular, Kishani who was an absolute pleasure to deal with, she was professional, courteous and knowledgeable which assisted us in making the final decision to travel to Ivory Lodge, please pass on our thanks and congrats for a super effort all round.
My wife and I will definitely be using Bushbreaks in the future and thank you for taking the time to email us…
Matthew & Catriona Montagu
Just to let you know that my husband and I had the most wonderful 28th wedding anniversary at Marataba. The lodge and food was fantastic but what really made it was the staff. From the gardener right through to the manager we just found everyone absolutely fantastic.
We were treated like royalty from the chocolate cake with `Happy 28th Anniversary’ on it to the candle lit bath, etc. It is one anniversary that we will definitely remember.
Thanks once again & regards,
Just a short note, to thank so much for recommending Impodimo Game Lodge to us.
My sister Elizabeth and myself had the most amazing break there, not only was the hospitality of the lodge exceptional but our game drives with ranger Matt and tracker Benni has given us memories to last a lifetime.
Thank you once again for your efficient service.
Isabel Curran and Elizabeth McAlarey
Thanks so much for this and sorry not to get back and thank Crystal. She was brilliant and really helpful and we had a wonderful time and a truly memorable 11th anniversary on 11.11.11 at Lions Valley Lodge.
Ardrie, Antony, Charles and the whole team at Lions Valley made us feel so special and even gave us a surprise stop with champagne on the day at 11am!!! All so thoughtful. Really well trained staff who are so attentive and yet never intrusive.
Richard the master chef served up wonderful meals and their eco, no waste motto is one to be truly proud of ….we would have no hesitation in recommending Lions Valley Lodge and the cheetah interaction and bonus of the serval now too are well worth a visit.
Already looking forward to our next bush break. Antony is a fun and knowledgeable game ranger – exploring not only the big game but all the little ones too :).
Many thanks for all your efforts.
Jayne and Phil
We have just returned from our trip to SA and 3 days at Kichaka Lodge.
We would like to thank Crystal very much for the lodge recommendation and her help with the booking process which was smooth and efficient. Kichaka is a wonderful place and made our honeymoon trip ever so memorable.
We will be back to SA next year and have already booked another stay through Bushbreaks, I guess that says it all…
Happy New Year,
We had wonderful stay at the Legend golf and game lodge. Thank you to Crystal and Heather for their amazing and prompt service they gave me!
Crystal was great in organising everything for us, both game drives and boma dinner were booked when we arrived. The food was fantastic as were the rooms.
What a pleasure it was to go to Kwa Maritane through BushBreaks.
My friends just returned from Shishangeni Game Lodge and had a wonderful time. I would just like to thank you for your friendly and efficient service with the bookings. It has been a pleasure to do our booking through you and I will most definitely do it again!
Our trip to Thornybush was fantastic. Everything went perfectly and the people there could not have been more wonderful. Our experience left us breathless – and missing it so much now that we’re home! Kishani did a great job organizing our trip and I have recommended BushBreaks to friends.
It was a truly magnificent experience at Nambiti Hills and we enjoyed every moment, we have already recommended to others. The service that we received from Kishani at BushBreaks was also excellent.
Thank you so much for all the trouble you went to to make sure our stay was a success.
We had an absolutely fantastic weekend and it far exceeded our expectations. We cannot commend Jock Safari Lodge highly enough for the beautiful setting, the attention to detail, the intimate atmosphere, the fantastic food, friendly staff and the excellent food. All in all it was a perfect weekend and we would love to go back soon.
Thanks again for all your assistance.
Thanks for your email. Do pass on my thanks to Kishani. All the arrangements were great and I experienced no problems – Ivory Lodge and Waterberg transfer were excellent.
Many thanks, Refiloe, the booking to Jaci’s Tree Lodge was handled excellently at very short notice.
All well organised and was fantastic.
The weekend away was perfect. Thandeka Lodge and it’s staff really took care of us. The service was excellent!
Thank you Crystal for your excellent service and help.
We had a great stay at Mkuze Falls last week…all was fantastic (as ever when we book with you)…lodge was great…
Your service has always been spot on and we have always managed to find a place to go at a good price that delivers on expectations…
Thanks and we will be in touch soon…will need another holiday soon!!
Dominic and Natalie
We had the most wonderfull weekend ever! Shibula Game Lodge and the staff were brilliant and we would most definitly go there again or make use of any of the other lodges you offer.
Thanks also to Crystal from BushBreaks, she was brilliant!
My feedback would be as follows:
The service we got from Kishani was great. Everything worked like clockwork. Very well done!!
Lion Sands River is a marvellous lodge. The total experience; service, friendly staff, quality of the facilities, game drives, rangers and trackers, was top-class! We shall definitely go there again, and can definitely recommend bushbreaks.co.za to anyone!
We have had great service from Bush Breaks every time we have used them. From the enquiry to the booking and to the stay.
The only sad thing is having to come home!!
Thank you for your excellent standard of service and the specials that you offer.
Hello Dina and Crystal
My husband and I enjoyed a truly wonderful stay at Marataba last week. The game-viewing was fantastic, much more than we expected. The meals were superb and my pescetarian/vegetarian requests were perfectly catered for. All staff were attentive, friendly and professional; the Acting GM Maryann arranged lovely little surprises which really made us feel very special indeed. I also have to mention that the attention to details throughout our stay was superb.
We highly recommend this lodge to anyone looking for a luxurious and private bush experience!
Thanks also must go to Bushbreaks for giving us the opportunity to enjoy an AFFORDABLE bush experience; we continually recommend Bushbreaks to all our friends and family. Please keep up your efficient good work!
Thanks for your e-mail.
My wife and I had a really relaxing stay at Black Rhino Game Lodge over the weekend – thanks to Crystal for the recommendation. We cannot fault any part of the time away; the slick booking process through BushBreaks, the quiet yet efficient and hospitable service provided by the Lodge staff, lovely home-style food, comfortable and spacious accommodation, and a responsible and knowledgeable game guide.
We would like to thank you Heather for the most amazing holiday! You were phenomenal in accommodating our lodge change, and I can assure you that this will not go without mentions to all of our friends! It made such a difference to our experience
Shepherd’s Tree Game Lodge staff were so friendly and accommodating and made our Saturday evening so special with rose petals and champagne!
Honestly, we love the lodge and will always book through Bush Breaks! It is just such a pleasure.
Thank you for offering us the Simbambili Lodge it was totally amazing. Please extend my thanks to the entire Simbambili team especially Liam and Mumps our game ranger and tracker they are the best I have met to date. I will most definitely use bush breaks for my next bush holiday.
Thanks and regards,
Good Morning Kishani
We had the most wonderful stay at Bongani Mountain Lodge, the accommodation, the food, the staff, all first class, just what we have come to expect from anything that you recommend. Your help was tremendous and greatly appreciated. We would truly recommend a stay at Bongani as it feels like we had a two week break and not a two day break it was so relaxing. The new manager at this lodge has really got his finger on the button and knows the hospitality business really well.
Again many thanks for your help and we will definitely speak again soon.
Just a note to say the service I received from Carrie-Ann was outstanding. Further, when she was unavailable her colleagues were impressively helpful.
I had a fantastic break at Vic Falls & will definitely make use of BushBreaks in future.
Thank you for the email. We are unfortunately back in London after our trip.
We had an amazing time at Shibula Lodge and couldn’t have asked for more. Their staff was very friendly and helpful. The lodge was very clean and service was excellent.
I would also like to thank Bush Breaks and Crystal Harding who really helped us a lot with the organisation. You were very efficient and the customer service was great. We live in London and I was not worried once about the trip and if everything will go smoothly.
Keep up the good work and we will highly recommend you as well as use you again the future.
I just wanted to thank you for your excellent and quick assistance with accommodation at Ivory Tree Lodge on such short notice – it was amazing!!
I just wanted to let you know we had an amazing trip to Simbambili last week and all the arrangements worked out perfectly. Thanks once again to you and the Bush Breaks team for another fabulous trip to the Bush!
We had a really divine three nights at Komati Tented Camp. Great accommodation, hospitality, food and game viewing. We will definitely take another break there next year.
Crystal Harding, was very helpful and efficient, a pleasure dealing with Bush Breaks.
Angus & Ailsa Hutchison
Thank you very much for your mail. I have sent Thandeka Lodge a mail regarding the excellent service, accommodation and wonderful scenery we have experienced. I would like to use this opportunity to thank you, BushBreaks also. We had a wonderful, actually extraordinary weekend. Everything was perfect and we were treated like royalty.
I will definitely refer my friend and colleagues to Thandeka and BushBreaks anytime!
Have a great day and thank you for making our wonderful weekend possible.
I have since last year, been working to get a once-in-a-lifetime African bush experience booked. I live in Australia with my husband and our trip is now booked, I completed the final payment today. We will be visiting Kapama Buffalo Camp next year in March.
The entire research and booking process was completed online. The entire process has been flawless and pleasant and this is thanks to the consultant who I dealt with, Refiloe Moroka. The service I received from Refiloe has been OUTSTANDING! From the start, Refiloe provided me with an accurate quote, information on the property, personal experience visiting the area and any other request I have had throughout the process of booking this holiday. At no point did I feel that Refiloe was only interested in making
the sale, the focus was on getting us the right place, at the right price and most importantly, with efficiency. If I email Refiloe, I get an almost immediate reply, time changes permitted.
Many thanks to Refiloe, I am sure that the experience and trip to Kapama will be fabulous!
Tina Clark (Sydney, Australia)
Our trip you organised to Botswana was amazing !
From the very first email in discussing our trip, to making the reservations, information required for Botswana plus countless emails from me asking a hundred and one questions, you delivered a perfect FIVE STAR SERVICE .
The Camps you chose were outstanding and every detail just as you said it would be.
Gail and I we want to say thank you very much for giving us the best time we’ve had in Africa.
We will soon be contacting you for another trip!
Hi Carrie -Ann & Crystal
I must compliment you and your team members, they were really efficient and offered me alternatives that were better value for money and went out of their way to assist me as to my needs (spa / birthday cake) .
This is the first experience I have had with BushBreaks and comparing it to your opposition whom I use and recommend to friends and family on a regular basis over the last 5yrs, your companies service and efficiency is in another league. Never mind the fact that your rates are lower for the same product.
( I would gladly pay more knowing that I am getting efficiency and service )
Keep it up, BushBreaks have a winning formula.
Tony Dos Santos Nunes
Thank you so much for the recommendation for Ivory Lodge and thank you for arranging it at short notice.
We had the most wonderful time, so I wanted to thank you for your advice. Also, to let you know it was without question one of the best experiences I have had and I have travelled a lot in South Africa to other lodges too.
The service was excellent, the staff were outstanding, the rooms were beautiful and clean. The food was wonderful. ( I know sometimes you get pretty much the same food day after day..). The menus were great and we sat at different venues each evening so it didn’t feel like same stuff, different day. The game rangers were extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure we had the full bush experience.
All in all, we had a wonderful relaxing time and it really was 5 star service. That is from you too and I am very grateful.
I will definitely be using your services again and will highly recommend Bushbreaks to others.
Just a quick e-mail to say how much we enjoyed Highgrove House. It was absolutely super and the staff went out of their way to make us feel at home and very, very spoilt. The accommodation was superb and even though their electricity had been wiped out by a huge storm, alternative plans had been made and very little inconvenience was experienced.
Many thanks for all your assistance and we look forward to using BushBreaks in the future, I see we are on the mailing list and I appreciate being kept up to date with your “specials”.
We have just returned from our stay at Camp Shawu– what an abundant, verdant time of year- the game was superb and the accommodation extraordinary- this was my brother’s first trip to the bush, ever, and he was in heaven- our guide Sifiso was outstanding, and Hazel and Christine looked after us incredibly well.
It was a truly wonderful stay, the setting of the lodge was incredible: we had herds of elephant and buffalo at very regular times each day, and a permanent audience of hippo for breakfast lunch and dinner.
Thank you for the recommendation- lovely, lovely
Thank you and Refiloe for your hard work and great service with my confernece and stay at Clifftop, was lovely and their service excellent. We will definitely return.
We couldn’t have imagined just how great this trip would be… We saw everything we possibly could with the Big 5 and the ambience of the Umzolozolo Safari Lodge itself coipled with the friendly staff made this a holiday to remember fir the rst of our lives!
Many thanks for assisting us. We wil recommend your services to all our friends and family… Chat soon(no doubt about that!)
Best wishes and have a great day!
Hi there to everybody at BushBreaks!,
As usual everything was ever so wonderful!! What a great experience to touch and interact with the elephants at The Elephant Sanctuary!
Thanks once again for your professional service.
You will hear from me very soon again!!
First of all our stay at Madikwe Hills was incredible! I can only say in the most superlative way how great everything was.
Wonderful accommodation, thanks to you , outstanding, friendly and efficient staff and scrumptious food.
The game viewing was the best I have ever encountered and Tsego our ranger was brilliant. An all round perfect BUSHBREAK.
Second of all, you are the best and most efficient booking agent I have come across. I mean that on a personal level.
Thanks once again,
Thanks for the friendly message.
Both, Bushbreaks and Nungubane Lodge, were fantastic in their service and left us with nothing more to want.
Thanks for your work, we will definitely use Bushbreaks again.
We had an amazing time! Nambiti Hills lodge is absolutely gorgeous and the reserve is really quite special.
It was super easy to book through Bushbreaks so thank you
We had the most awesome stay at Hlosi Game Lodge. Thank you and Refiloe for the fantastic service that you both have given me. We’ll definately go back there this year.
Good Day Bush Breaks Team/ Petra!
We really enjoyed our getaway. And I’m happy to say I received a true luxury getaway at the bargain that you offered at Bongani Mountain Lodge. That will remain the differentiator between Bushbreaks and any other service provider. The interaction with Bushbreaks staff was professional and courteous. Please keep giving us the quality, luxury getaways! So enjoyed and well worth it!
Good day Yaseera/ Refiloe
We have a great time at Umzolozolo and all the booking arrangement were in place. It was as if we did the booking directly with the lodge – but at a discounted rate.
The booking through Bushbreaks was quick and easy. I will definitely recommend Buskbreaks to me friends and family and will be sure to visit you website with my next booking
The only feedback I can give to you and Team is KEEP IT UP
Thank you for the great service!!!
We have a wonderful stay at Springbok Lodge!
Thank you and Refiloe for your excellent service that you provided us.
I shall definitely use you in the future
Thank you so much for arranging our booking at Nkomazi Game Reserve!
We have been to a few hotels around the world and we are yet to experience the level of service provided from from the staff at Nkomazi; it was seriously unbelievable.
I have recommended the place (and BushBreaks) already to a number of friends and already hoping to return to Nkomazi soon.
It really was an amazing place; clean, friendly, welcoming, and incredibly good value on all fronts – food, service and wildlife.
Many thanks and hopefully chat soon,
We enjoyed every moment of our stay a Simbambili Game Lodge… A lovely bush hideaway with great service, food and game sightings. We would certainly go back!
Thank you for the recommendation and for handling our reservation very efficiently. We are soooo looking forward to our next visit to the bush.
I wish to compliment you for such professional and excellent service. To organizing the trip so quickly and recommending Shepherds Tree Game Lodge. THANK YOU!!
Shepherds Tree Lodge exceeded my expections. My game ranger Andrew was exceptional, the food was superb, service excellent, everyone was so friendly, and the spa was the cherry on top! Amazing.
Thanks for excellent service. Till next time.
As usual Shepard’s Tree is excellent, great service received from you and Refiloe, did not have to follow up on anything as you both were extremly efficient and on the ball.
Staff, food and facilities are 5 star
We had a wonderful stay at Nambiti Plains last week and wanted to confirm that I found the whole process through BushBreaks to be very easy and efficient.
It was the first time we have used you, but will definitely do so again
Wonderful experience at Madikwe Safari Lodge thank you Francois. They were brilliant with the children. Our guide Andre Nel was a walking encyclopaedia – thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with him. MSL was really slick – they didn’t miss a single detail – staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.
Many thanks indeed,
We enjoyed our stay at both lodges very much and everything went very smoothly and stress free. This was not the first time I made use of Bushbreaks’ offers and services and as before, I was not disappointed. I particularly appreciate the fact that Bushbreaks makes it affordable for South Africans to be able to enjoy luxury game lodges such as these in their own country.
I will certainly again make use of Bushbreaks in future.
Thanks for the mail. Walkersons was awesome, we absolutely loved it there.
Your service was phenomenal and we really appreciate it.
Good day Francois
Thanks for the email.
We had a beautiful time at Tshwene Lodge and would not have changed anything! We will definitely like visit the Reserve again
Thanks for the wonderful service!
I can NOT thank you enough for all of your recommendations on The Outpost and African Rock Hotel. They were both excellent!!! It was a perfect compliment to two weeks of very difficult volunteering in the local village. I so appreciated a beautiful place to enjoy clean sheets, a hot bath, good food, excellent service, and amazingly beautiful scenery.
Thank you so very much. If I ever go back I will definitely use your services, as well as recommend them to anyone traveling to Africa in the future.
We had a stunning time Francois at Kapama Buffalo Camp. It was an experience that superseded our expectations. We were so impressed by everything and everyone and enjoyed coming back to the room only to find that the “cleaning fairies” had been there to turn down our beds and leave a little treat on our pillows.
The staff were so friendly, informative and very professional and I loved how they worked together as a team. Everyone did everyone else’s job with a smile and nothing was an effort.
One of my best stays ever!
Thank you for assisting us with our booking. We’ll definitely make use of Bush Breaks again…
Phinda Forest Lodge is absolutely amazing and we had a fantastic time. Every element of the holiday went off perfectly.
We will definitely be booking through BushBreaks again shortly.
I had a wonderful time at Jackalberry Game Lodge and received excellent help and service when making the reservation through Bush Breaks.
Komati Tented Lodge was a fantastic experience…we had great time…thanks for your kind suggestions and advice.
Thank you very much for the great service. I am already looking forward to the next trip.
Good Day Francois
Thank you very much for your assistance with this booking. We had a great time at Walkersons – it really is a lovely place with lovely service, and the food is of course amazing! The fly fishing was great and the guys had lots of luck (or is it skill?) on their side this weekend!
Thanks very much.
My parents so enjoyed the weekend. Apparently Samara was amazing, and they saw some awesome game and birds, and different rare species which they were thrilled with.
Many Thanks for all your assistance
Thank you for your message!
