Within 5 minutes of being at Bushbuck Camp we knew that we HAD to stay longer... and we did! What a special place. Enough comforts to be comfortable - hot water, kitchen setup with fridge, gas stove, kettle and toaster, electric blankets (awesome for winter nights), braai area, bathroom. But "outdoorsy" enough to feel like a secret escape from life's... More

My husband and I spent four nights at Bushbuck camp and were amazed with the breathtaking natural environment and comfortable accommodation. The camp is the perfect place to slow down, relax and enjoy nature. The bird life is spectacular and it is an opportunity to observe Fish eagles, Kingfishers, Loerie's and many more whilst braaiing on the deck or simply... More

Bushbuck Camp is wonderfully situated close enough to all the nearby main attractions but far enough off the beaten track that it offers real peace and quiet. The camp itself is neat, clean and well cared for with very comfortable accommodation for a small family. We absolutely loved our stay at Bushbuck Camp and our kids really enjoyed the space... More

We will definitely be going back! Great deck looking out over a beautiful dam. The paddleboat and kayaks were a lot of fun. Very secluded and gorgeous. It is lovely to wake up to birds singing! We also saw two bushbuck. Would recommend to all nature enthusiasts!

Stunning venue for the perfect break away. Had priceless moments there. If you are looking for a quite place where the birds wake you up, this is it. Close to Sedgefield. The market on Saturday's also added that farm touch to the weekend. Will go there again soon.

Was first time staying in Sedgefield, and can really recommend Bushbuck Camp. Its isolated and a perfect gettaway, giving the feeling that you have the whole lake to yourself. The bird life is magnificent, starting with the Knysna Loeries that perch in the trees next to the camp. In the evening you can hear the bushbuck barking and we had... More

This was a great opportunity for us to feel at one with nature, and we did just that! It's a secluded hide-out, that allows you the true feeling of camping, without having to bring the kitchen sink. Everything you need is there - fridge, stove, water, beds & bedding, tent, electricity, shower, toilet, braai area, table & chairs... We never... More
