We are not home yet but are enjoying one more night just outside Hazyview. Your home
is fantastic and I have to say attention to detail cannot be faulted, it was like
a home away from home. We had a great week and are sad to leave Hoedspruit and BushGlam.
The restaurants were great as we tried a few (best was Cala la Pasta) and we had
a few birds which we fed at the fence each night, amazing. Unfortunately we did not
see any game at the fence. Once again I have to say a lovely comfortable home and
a good relaxed week, thank you.

We have really enjoyed a carefree holiday in BushGlam, in this beautiful spacious
house with pool in Hoedspruit.
It had been perfectly arranged by Lobecotours: flight suggestions, advice for hotel
for the first night, even the car including advice on automatic.
Once at the destination place we were impressed by the quality and cleanliness of
the house, the space, the contemporary décor, the luxurious swimming pool and terrace
at ‘the bush’.
The safari drives (a must!) and cruise were booked for us. We also received good
restaurant tips and valuable suggestions for other special ‘things to do’.
In short, it was bountiful top quality! Very professional and recommendable!

BushGlam was voor ons een geweldige ervaring.
Onbekend gingen wij naar het noorden van Zuid Afrika, om te gaan genieten van de
natuur en natuurlijk de game-drives. BushGlam maakt ook een onderdeel uit van het
fijne gevoel dat je kunt beleven, niet alleen wat de natuur te bieden heeft, maar
ook de gezelligheid en warmte wat dit huis met het zwembad uitstraalt. Wij voelden
ons daar heel gelukkig! Het huis heeft een smaakvolle, goed verzorgde inrichting.
Wij zijn echte Bourgondiërs maar wilden 's-avonds bij het zwembad zitten i.p.v. bezoek
aan restaurant, om te genieten van de geluiden die de nachtelijke omgeving bood.
Er zijn zoveel mogelijkheden dat alles niet in 1 week kan worden uitgevoerd, zodat
een volgend bezoek aan dit geweldige huis, zeker zal plaatsvinden! Bedankt, alles
was prima verzorgd!!

Thanks for the really super furnished house! The boys have full on enjoyed the pool
and the surrounding area. We made an afternoon/evening safari drive and saw a lot
including the big4, the elephant not…for this time!

We had a terrific stay in Hoedspruit at BushGlam in December 2012. The house was
perfect for the four of us. Plenty of room, nice swimming pool and the air conditioning
was a relief on a couple of hot nights. Highlights of our time around Hoedspruit
included several activities suggested by Anita and Gerrie: Two visits to Hoedspruit
Endangered Species Center (the young Cheetahs were great), kisses from Jessica the
hippo, and a couple of self guided trips into Kruger Park. The house was conveniently
located near these activities and several nice restaurants are within walking distance,
with many other restaurants and two supermarket stores located a short drive away.
Colleen (the local manager) and Anita and Gerrie also went above and beyond in helping
track a package to us that had vanished into the South African postal system – they
delivered it to us personally (!) in the Cape Town area before we left South Africa.
Thanks again for all your help.

You get in the house and it feels like home! This is what we want from self-catering.
Clear explanation about the house from Colleen and we can start enjoying.
From the tips from Gerrie and Anita we booked for 2 game-drives and the boot cruise.
All 3 where better than expected! So it is worth it to book and look carefully at
the tips, something for everybody!
The 7 days we stayed, we relaxed, had nice drives, saw a lot of animals (also in
the backyard), swam in the beautiful pool, dreamed away in the jet streamer, had
good en lovely dinners in town (Hat & Greek was our favorite) and had good quality
time as a family. WE DO IT AGAIN!

We returned from Hoedspruit yesterday, as arranged with you, after a terrific stay
in your home. Thank you so much, we really enjoyed being there, loved Hoedspruit
and its weather and sampling the local cuisine at the various restaurants in Hoedspruit. You
really have a lovely place there and I would certainly like to make use of the facility
again sometime in the future. It is most conveniently situated - and close to the
Kruger Park which we visited on the public holiday. Also most enjoyable.
We really had a wonderful five days in your home. You have thought of absolutely
everything regarding self-catering accommodation and besides that your home is comfortable,
homely and very conveniently placed. Definitely accommodation to be recommended.
Colleen was very helpful and friendly and was always ready to assist. All in all
it was a most enjoyable stay. Thank you so much.

We stayed at Bush Glam for 5 days and had a really wonderful time. The house is modern
with a large master bedroom en suite and private balcony overlooking the bush. Bush
Glam is centrally situated and within walking distance to restaurants.
We had an amazing time in beautiful surroundings and can recommend this ccommodation.
Wilna and Chris Heunis, South Africa
Na een lange tocht door de prachtige bergen zijn we aangekomen in het kleine plaatsje
We werden zeer aangenaam verrast door het prachtige huis met zwembad en jet streamer.
Na de rondleiding door het huis werden we ook nog verwelkomd door een groep Nyala's
bij het hek van de achtertuin!
Hoedspruit ligt redelijk dichtbij 2 toegangen tot
het Krugerpark en dichtbij diverse private game resorts. we hebben dus heel veel
wild van dichtbij kunnen bewonderen. Met name de game drives die Anita en Gerrie
voor ons hadden georganiseerd, waren spectaculair! Neushoorns, olifanten en zelfs
een leeuw midden in de Bush heel dichtbij gezien.
Maar er is meer te beleven: de blyde rivier canyon en de vele prachtige watervallen.
s avonds lekker bijkomen en nagenieten in de achtertuin..
Hoedspruit is een klein dorpje, maar wel van alle gemakken voorzien: curio shops,
diverse goede restaurants en zelfs een afhaal pizzeria. Het restaurant hat en creek
was wel ons favoriet.
Gerrie en Anita, hartelijk bedankt voor deze fantastische en
bijzondere ervaring vanuit de bushglam!

We were really curious to see BushGlam in reality after all information and pictures
Our expectations were high, but totally blown away when we saw the reality; BushGlam
feels like home, a place to unwind and relax! The furniture and decoration of BushGlam
are of high quality, tasteful, modern with an African touch. Of course we used the
pool every day, no better way to start your day in Hoedspruit.
Hoedspruit itself is a nice village which meets everybody’s needs. We discovered
quite some good restaurants, ‘Hat and Creek’ and ‘Safari Club’ were our favorites,
although we did not had the time to discover ’Ollie’s’, which is also in walking
distance of BushGlam.
On a certain day it was raining cats and dogs and we decided to go back to the house
earlier; and there they were standing, at least six Kudu’s, just at the end of our
backyard, hiding for the rain, just a few meters away … incredible!
We really loved our stay, we have been very active, seen a lot, even the big 5 (of
the 6), thanks also for organizing this safari experience for us! Just a week in
BushGlam and Hoedspruit is too short, as it has a lot to offer; so much luxury and
comfort, safe, wildlife at your doorstep but also restaurants and shops close by.
For us (and we are quite spoiled travelers) it was a welcome surprise to experience
Thanks, Anita and Gerrie you really made our holiday even more special.
