Perfect in every way
Genuinely the most beautiful accommodation I’ve ever experienced. It lives up to the reviews. I was lucky enough to stay in lodge 6 and I just wish there had been more hours in the day to spend lots of time in every indoor and outdoor section. The staff go out of their way to provide exceptional service and the food is outstanding. A special mention to Ranger Jacques, who was a brilliant guide and absolutely made the stay with his extensive knowledge, humour and care for guests.

Where does one begin? From the minute you drive up to the wonderful smiling, welcoming, waving greeters you feel at home. Lush was the highlight of our South African vacation. Every single attention to detail shows that love, thought and care has been given. Our guide Cole was outstanding, his knowledge and passion shine through. Thank you Lush for the memories we will definitely be back.

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!
