Welcome to Bushbabies Lodge

Luxury Chalets, Fully Equipped Tents & Shaded Caravan Sites with own Private Ablution.

Bushbabies Lodge is nestled in the North-Eastern side of the Dinokeng Game Reserve, home to the Big 5. The malaria-free bush-breakaway you’ve been waiting for is just 40 minutes from Pretoria and 1 hour and 20 minutes from O.R. Tambo International Airport. Because of location, the stars are brighter at night, you hear lion roars, jackals bark, bushbabies cry, owls screeches, the insects sing and much more is often heard at night.
