Mawusi Bush Lodge is a unique new concept and experience in self-catering hospitality.

The Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate is situated just a few kilometres outside of the quaint little town of Hoedspruit. The town borders many private game reserves/farms which in turn border the Kruger National Park. The inclusion of these into the Park has created the area known as the Greater Kruger National Park which now covers more than 20 000 000 hectares.
Whilst the Estate is in the middle of the African bushveld it is conveniently situated close to some fine restaurants, shopping centres and the Eastgate Airport which is only 16 km away.
Mawusi Bush Lodge is the ideal springboard from which to launch your tours to the numerous attractions in the Hoedspruit area including the world-renowned Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon, the largest green canyon in the world. 
Our Lodge is highly rated for its impeccable cleanliness, friendly staff and attention to detail. We also pride ourselves as one of only a very few lodges in the industry that is fully wheelchair accessible and meets the requirements laid down by the SABS standards for disabled friendly recognition.
Hoedspruit can experience extreme summer temperatures so we have installed ceiling fans and air conditioners in all the rooms to ensure your comfort at all times.
For those who suffer from allergies, our Lodge does not have a thatch roof. Your bed is free of falling thatch debris and the mess caused by squirrels and lizards which love being in the roof.
We have furnished the Lodge with comfortable, vibrant coloured colonial style furniture, quality rugs and the decor brings in a touch of African.

Our Accommodation

We have three spacious airy luxury bedrooms which can sleep up to six people in total

We are of the opinion that mosquito nets, whilst aesthetically attractive, are impractical for the Hoedspruit climate because they restrict the air circulation and the benefits of the ceiling fans and air conditioners.

For your convenience we have, therefore, elected not to install them. However, due to Hoedspruit being a low risk malaria area, for your protection, we have fitted mosquito netting to all our windows and the Lodge is sprayed three monthly inside and out with a pesticide which is safe to both humans and animals.

This effectively eradicates all insects including mosquitoes and allows you to enjoy the unrestricted flow of cool air.
All our rooms have a stunning view of the African bushveld. The large sliding doors gives a feeling of openness and being truly part of nature. The rooms have direct access to the patio where you can enjoy your evening sundowner.

Living Areas

The lounge is furnished with vibrant coloured contemporary colonial style furniture which beckons you to put your feet up and relax after your evening meal as you recollect the day’s excitement, over a drink. The tiled floor is dotted with beautiful Persian rugs which contribute to the ambiance of luxury. The theme of the decor is the mighty elephant which is being poached for its valuable ivory. We have provided a flat-screen television set with the full M-net Premium Bouquet for you to enjoy your favourite soapy, sports event or just sit back and watch a movie.
The lounge leads out onto a covered patio. Out here you may choose to take your meals or just laze on the camp chairs taking in the tranquillity of the bushveld. Your excitement will reach new heights when the warthog arrive to wallow in the mud or antelope come to drink at the waterhole.
What would a trip into the bushveld be without a traditional South African braai (barbecue). A Weber kettle braai is available on the patio to enhance your “braai” experience. 

Kitchen and Breakfast/Catering

At Mawusi Bush Lodge we provide self-catering accommodation. We have a fully equipped kitchen with everything you’ll need to prepare your favourite meals including a four plate electric stove with oven, microwave and fridge freezer. Although the kitchen is not fitted with a dishwasher, it is serviced daily except on Sundays and public holidays. We have pioneered an exceptionally innovative approach to breakfasts which makes Mawusi Bush Lodge unique and sets it apart from other self-catering accommodation facilities. Our guests can now enjoy the best of both worlds by deciding whether to prepare their own breakfast or to have their breakfast prepared for, and served to them. This, whilst still enjoying the full use of the entire self-catering facility in the Lodge. We have introduced the following breakfast options for you to choose from.

The Great Outdoors

The beautiful indigenous garden of  huge trees, impala and kudu lilies, aloes, halfmens (elephant’s trunk) and a collection of more than 30 different species of South African and African cycads surround the Mawusi Bush Lodge. This affords you the opportunity to view some of the rare cycad species which have been plundered to the extent that they are now extinct in their natural environment.
You will enjoy the sparkling blue splash pool, martini seat and wooden deck with sun loungers and umbrellas. The pool, deck and the open patio overlook the waterhole which attracts many animals and bird species. Swimming towels are also provided on request. A braai (barbecue) is always a huge social event in South Africa. Sitting around the fire enjoying  your drink and good company whilst the evening air is filled with the aromas from your braai remains a typical bushveld experience. 

Braai Packs

For your convenience we now also provide a complete prepacked braai pack for your evening braai (barbecue) consisting of choice chicken kebabs or lamb, boerewors (traditional South African sausage) and we include a garlic roll, side dish and a complementary bottle of wine (minimum two persons) or an ice cold complimentary beer.
