On arrival we were greeted by Ben with a welcome cold drink, help with our luggage and a quick tour of Red Ivory, which was very well equipped and so peaceful. Huge bi-fold doors opening out onto the bush and splash pool area.The only sound constant bird song. We'd booked db&b and learned that Ben was the chef. His cooking was superb, making even our breakfasts special and serving up his delicious personal recipes for our evening meals. Then there was De Wet who was such a great host, There was much banter with him regaling us with stories of his exploits. (Many times with frowns from Ben when our food was waiting to be served!) His daily advice and knowledge was invaluable, Another Ben appeared the next morning. He looked after us at mealtimes and expertly fielded our many fauna/birding questions with great clarity & wit. Ben 2 also took us on a night bush walk. His care and knowledge was extraordinary and insightful. Thoroughly recommended. Then there was 'Si' who took us on a morning bush walk to give us a taste of tracking and birding round the beautiful reserve. Again very knowledgeable with a keen sense of humour. Kuleni is a perfect location to explore from, with Hluhluwe national park just 3/4 hours away. What made this visit very special was the warmth, friendliness and helpfulness of Bushwillow's staff. Our four nights passed far too quickly and it was a sad parting on our last morning. Thank you again to the staff, seen and unseen who made our visit so memorable.

Was a very beautiful family room (two bedroom unit). Only issue is at night it was very dark and some of the decking had weak boards and one of the workers almost fell. It was lucky it wasn’t one of the guests as we were 50km from the nearest clinic.

We had a lovely stay at Bushwillow collections. The accommodation was in great condition, the little pool much needed in the heat and being surrounded by the bush and wildlife was good for the soul. De Wet and Dane were great hosts, quick to answer any questions and always keen to engage and accommodate us. I highly recommend it and will be going back there.

Very lovely lodge in middle of interesting reserve
Bushwillow is an amazing find and we have already recommended to friends that live in the region. Under new management but from reading previous reviews, has done nothing to detract from this being a special place.
