Payment can be made at any gate or restcamp as the bush lodges do not have reception offices. There are no shops or restaurant facilities, but the kitchen has a gas stove with oven, refrigerator, freezer, cutlery and crockery. Gas braais and barbecue facilities are provided and wood may be purchased. A bush lodge must be reserved en bloc. Visitors can check in at any main rest camp or gate.
This option is for the lover of creature comforts. No luxury is spared in these 5-star accommodation Bush Lodges. So stretch out in the comfort and style you are accustomed to. To view concession locations, please see this map.

- The park was first proclaimed in 1898 as the Sabie Game Reserve by the then president of the Transvaal Republic, Paul Kruger. He first proposed the need to protect the animals of the Lowveld in 1884, but his revolutionary vision took another 12 years to be realised when the area between the Sabie and Crocodile Rivers was set aside for restricted hunting.
