The Bushbabies is situated on one of the prime stands in the Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate with huge trees, beautiful uninterrupted African bush and majestic Drakensberg mountain views. The Estate is approximately 680 hectare including a greenbelt area of about 400 hectare. It is well stocked with plains game including Giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, duiker, impala, zebra, wildebeest and warthog. There is a river bed running through the Estate with typical riverine forests. However due to it being dry for most of the year the game is mostly in the bushveld where they graze, browse and drink at the various waterholes.
This bush retreat enjoys the best of both worlds. Whilst it is located in the heart of the bushveld it is conveniently just a few kilometres from the town of Hoedspruit. It is just 16 kilometres from Hoedspruit’s Eastgate Airport which has daily flights from Johannesburg and Cape Town. We shuttle up to 2 persons with luggage free or we will arrange transport for you at an additional charge by prior arrangement. The location is an ideal springboard from which to visit the Kruger National Park, the Panorama Route or the other activities in the area, See our Activities Page.
