A truly luxurious experience
Excellent service, friendly, helpful staff. Excellent food. The cherry on the top was when I found that my car was washed for me, on the morning I was checking out.

Our Lush experience was extraordinarily “LUSH” The staff are so genuinely caring, kind and professional yet suitably personable. They all made us feel really special and our experience of lodge and game viewing proved brilliant! The lodge is luxuriously and beautifully attired. The food is gourmet and delicious. Our overall best ever safari experience!

Why look anywhere else?
Lush lodge really has no faults- and after a 4 night stay, if it did we would have found them. The building and facilities were incredible- like something out of a film. The attention to detail is second to none. Every member of staff greets you by name and seems to have any request ready before you have finished your sentence. Thank you to all the team but in particular Andrew for organising a special celebratory meal for us. A special mention must go to our ranger Ruan - not only providing us with once in a lifetime sightings, he was also knowledgable about the whole landscape, birds and trees and kept us interested in between seeing the animals. Ruan’s passion, dedication and obvious enjoyment in his job was infectious and he was always professional and respectful of the animals and environment. Thank you again James and Libby

Everything about the Lush is magnificent. We just spent 3 nights during the Easter break as part of our South African honeymoon and it was pure magic. From the rooms, to the lodge, the food to the lovely people that hosted us, Lush really exceeded our expectations. A big thanks to Gloria, Andrew, Prince and our awesome guide Des. We will definitely be back!
