Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A true gem in the bush. Very clean with lovely stuff and delicious food. My husband and I loved our stay there. The owner is also very hospitable. Beautiful views of the estate from upstairs, where you can watch the sunset with your sundowners or go stargazing late at night.

This place is extremely tranquil and beautiful. There’s wildlife moving around freely which was beautiful to see. It’s so quiet. The bathroom was the highlight of the place, beautiful tub and outdoor shower, we loved this feature. The breakfast was good. Host is helpful with booking activities.

A beautiful place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city while still experiencing luxury and comfort. Calm atmosphere, scenic views and occasional visits from friendly wildlife. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is to die for, absolutely loved the outdoor shower

The overall stay was nice. The room and everything but dinner what they served as dinner I’ll give it 2/5 the food was not nice, I think they should improve in that department only. Everything else was 10/10 I’d go back again but please fix the cooking department

It is the best property for one to rest but the manager doesn’t have any work ethic,she was shouting at her staff in front of us and she swear at them calling them useless inside the house. I suggest The manager must have an office outside the living room where one is suppose to watch TV and she is working at the same time.

We were unfortunately only at Gem In the bush Lodge for one night, but we will definitely be back. The room was fantastic, we were allowed to have breakfast together with a warthog, an interesting experience!

Definitely not a gem; difficult to get to particularly if arriving after dark. Room was nice and spacious but everything else was just average. Limited breakfast options. Staff was polite and helpful.
