You will feel both safe and welcome with your Federal Airlines representative waiting for you as you step through the doors ready to transfer you to our private facility adjacent to OR Tambo. A quick 10-minute drive will see you arriving at our doors where the oasis of our lounge awaits you for a much-needed wash-up, a cup of coffee, food and a moment of quiet relaxation before your adventure begins.
Deep in the bushveld overlooking a waterhole and an open plain, lies a lodge that pulses to the rhythm of Africa’s heartbeat. This is Bush Lodge, steeped in tradition, vibrant and warm, the Sabi Sabi of “Today”. With a history spanning over 35 years, the lodge has earned a reputation of a “luxury home in the bush”, service excellence and effortless personal attention. The conventional safari style showcases a vibrant and eclectic mix of furnishings and décor garnered from all corners of the African continent.
To maintain privacy and intimacy, the lodge has 25 suites featuring en-suite bathrooms and al-fresco, glass-fronted showers, with wonderful views of the bushveld. Bush Lodge has been sensitively designed to allow ample space to relax, unwind and savour the tranquillity of the bush. The two swimming pools and large covered viewing decks overhanging the Msuthlu riverbed are an invitation to cool off in the filtered water or sit in comfort while spotting game at the well-utilised pan. An exquisitely furnished lounge, atrium and intimate bar area are perfect meeting places for friends old and new. As an extra indulgence at Bush Lodge offers the ultimate African Spa experience.
Fly back to Johannesburg on the last day where you will be collected and transferred to the D'Oreale Grand Hotel at Emperors Palace.
