We really enjoyed our walks throught the bush and the game viewing along the way. We could have listened to Kerneels' stories about his experiences in the bush and about the animals for hours -...

Hi Guys Thank you so much for the kind words. It was really nice having you as a family. Sorry about the Jacuzzi. Unfortunately we had a power dip through the night which caused the the timer to reset and not heating the water. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Regards Kerneels Scholtz More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
VALLEY BUSHVELD COUNTRY LODGE is an owner managed, successful, upmarket four star, safari-style Guest Lodge and bed and breakfast close to Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The Eastern Cape is called "Naturally South Africa's Best", with a million hectare of malaria-free, big 5 game viewing, fantastic beauty and endless beaches. The Lodge is built on the banks of the Coegas River and is situated on a private game reserve which boasts over 17 species of wild game animals and antelope. The reserve is just 200 metres of the main R75 on route to Addo. Our beautiful lodge overlooks the valley and promises you of an exquisite, once in a lifetime scenery and sunsets with wild antelope feeding around the lodge. In the distance if you should want to explore the valley, you will discover a little river, natural rock face and a natural unharmed environment with its own wildlife. Spoil yourself in the Jacuzzi while sipping on South African champagne and fine wines. The view from the Jacuzzi is out of this world and you have the chance to spot wild antelope from your seat in the Jacuzzi. You can not beat this experience.Around the lodge you will spot an abundance of wildlife, some 17 species of South African antelope, such as Giraffe, Black Impala, Kudu, Blue Wildebeest, Zebra, Blesbuck, Impala, Nyala, Bushbuck, Waterbuck, Duiker, Grysbuck, Warthog, Bushpig, Mongoose, Fox, Porcupine, Jackal, Meerkat, Lynx and primates such as baboon and vervet monkey.
