if you expect to have internet or electricity the whole day simply don't choose the Buchu Bushcamp. If you are looking for immersion in nature in a calm place with some comfort this place is for you. It is at the entrance of the De hoop reserve. The staff is nice. I came in 2007 and still keep good memories... More

We stayed at Buchu for three nights, and ate there each night as well. The food was great, the beds were comfi and the staff incredible helpful. The lack of electricity was problematic at night - our kids like to sleep with a light on...but an oil lamp solved the issue. Overal we thought this camp was great...and we loved... More

My partner and I recently spent 2 nights at Buchu Bush Camp. The camp is just outside the De Hoop Nature Reserve in the Cape. The reserve is really gorgeous, and untouched - well worth a visit. Buchu is not a place that I would recommend staying, though. We were taken in by the gorgeous pictures on the website, which... More

We enjoyed our stay in the rustic surroundings of Buchu. We found the staff friendly and helpful. We had omitted to request vegetarian meals in advance, but the cooks produced a lovely vegetarian meal for us on both evenings. Buchu is situated near the entrance gate to De Hoop nature reserve. Be warned that without a 4x4 vehicle, the drive... More

From the desctriptions I had read about Buchu Bushcamp, my experience did not live up to the expectations I had. Like a previous contributor, I actually ended up NOT staying there. This was due to a number of factors, including the onset of a critical leg injury which, by virtue of the long boardwalks made walking for someone with mobility... More

If you are looking for a nice retreat surrounded by nature, this is for you. You will find yourself in a remote place, 1h of dirt road from the nearest village. The landscape is beautiful, and the chalets are confortable, equipped with tea/coffee, and even a small kitchen (they can prepare dinner for you, but indeed the menu is one... More

Although I never did stay at this bushcamp, I wanted to warn travelers as to their inflexible deposit refund policy. My family of 8 adults was scheduled to stay here for 3 days when my daughter-in-law was admitted to a hospital with a life threatening heart infection 3 days prior to our arrival. I immediately tried to contact Buchu Bushcamp... More

I was really looking forward to staying at the Buchu Bushcamp and visiting the De Hoop area. However I was very disappointed with the quality of the chalets compared to the cost per person and the service offered at the lodge in general. I think that on booking they should be more precise on things like no electricity at certain... More

Buchu is a small group of thatched chalets just next to the main gate of De Hoop Nature Reserve. The chalets are nicely furnished with their own private decks and walkways. You are surrounded by the bush with lots of wild flowers including Proteas. The camp has a main lodge with a comfortable guest area and restaurant serving traditional food.... More
