Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The room was not cleaned so I had to clean the room everyday. No broom was even provided to sweep. On the day of our departure around 8am the owner came to ask what time we were leaving. I was so annoyed by this because we knew that we had to check out at 10am. I felt as if he was chasing us away and couldn’t wait to welcome his next guest. I was so disappointed. Breakfast for the three nights was placed in the fridge and included muffins and bread. The muffins were not fresh at all so we threw them in a bin.

To Wayne. Tusk Bush Lodge is a real gem. We really enjoyed our stay at the Lodge. From the boma where you can relax with a big fire and wine, a fantastic pool and the luxury bungalows you will find everything you need and more. You will fall in love with the quietness and bushveld when you stay here. A lovely place for couples or a group of friends. 3 Bungalows on the property. All same layout but somehow different with interior. Thank you Douglas for making everything so effortless and always willing to help. It was a blast. Hope to come visit soon again. Regards Jan, Michelle, Johan and Nolene

My partner and I needed a break from the buzz of jhb and just reboot and this was the perfect experience! All our activities were taken care of, the chalets are not too close to each other allowing much needed privacy and the animals walking around all the time is an added bonus! Will definitely come back

What an amazing weekend we had at Tusk Bush Lodge. So worth your while. Beautiful setting and rooms. A very exclusive "in the bush" experience - having some antelope and mongooses right on your doorstep. Treat yourself, you won't regret it. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, very welcoming.

Fantastic lodge, with comfortable accommodation, gracious hosts right in the African Bush. This is the place if you want to experience and learn about the bush or to go on a photo safari. Wayne and Douglas are extremely knowledgeable in both fields and excellent hosts. Well worth the visit.
