What We Do

On offer a selection of the best ancient healing treatments 
in an unspoilt place where wild animals roam free.....

Relaxing and holistic treatments

Safari & Wellness 

A relaxing holistic treatment is the ideal way to break up a tiring safari, with early morning and late afternoon activities often leaving ample time during mid day "siesta".
The setting is dreamy, on a secluded deck next to a lagoon that sees permanent heavy hippo traffic and a wide diversity of other animal visitors. This provides a unique soundtrack to your treatment, with the constant grunt and gurgle of hippo pods given a more musical backing by birdsong and antelope alarm calls.

The Bush-Spa has individual and couples’ treatment rooms

plus an open air wet deck featuring a "lagoon tub" for heavenly aqua therapy.
All rooms are open-sided compartments that allow you to enjoy the living soundtrack and feel the natural breeze in your hair.

The treatment menu includes all the classic spa staples with a local twist

The Bush-Spa is open daily during daylight hours

Bush-Spa Guest Reviews

What our Spa guests have to say?

I had the opportunity to get a massage at this amazing, perfectly located and nature embracing Spa.

Hippos in the background singing their grumpy songs and a well-educated staff made this an awesome experience.

My body has never felt so relaxed and zen like that moment.
Lovely, thanks!

I made an appointment for a massage following two days at one of the camps at the suggestion of one of the lodge employees. It was terrific! The spa is wonderful, and I had a very relaxing massage. The treatment room overlooks the lagoon so I heard hippos, and a couple baboons scampered across the roof at one point! You can't find that just anywhere! It was a great experience and I highly recommend it!


This is my 4th time at the lodge and it wouldn't be complete without our spa time. The girls are amazing after a morning on the safari vehicles the afternoon spa is a must. The serenity of the setting is perfect and so relaxing even the hippo's grunting and frolicking in the water below and the baboons racing across the roof all adds to the atmosphere, I cannot decide which I enjoyed the best massage, facial, pedi the works everything is amazing.
