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.

With a walking safari starting in Klaserie the next day, we were looking for reasonably priced, close accommodation that offered comfortable beds and a good hot shower. The Bush Pub & Inn delivered exactly what we wanted, with bonus animal sightings and a tranquil bush atmosphere to put us in the right headspace. Unpretentious, friendly and relaxing. Having a few beers in the pub onsite was a great way to end the day too.

It was great staying at the Bush Pub and Inn; people were extremely nice and helpful, food (pizza) was yummy and not pricey. One could just hang at the pub after the game drives, the pub (as well as the rooms) is essentially right in the bush! Food and drinks were simply added to the room bill.
We could book our game drives directly through the Bush Inn which was convenient and the game drives were awesome. look out for the monkies and the wild dogs.

During our stay at Swadini Forever Resort in December 2019, we decided to have lunch away from the resort and we heard of this small bush pub near Timbavate Game Reserve gate.
What a nice experience. The best T-Bone ever and at a very good price. The ladies had some nice coffee which you do not often find in a pub and even the youngster enjoyed his food.
Will be back next year, for sure.

This Bush Pub is one of those places that exemplify the South African saying "Local is Lekker", meaning "Local is Good". You can see why all the locals enjoy this place and keep going back to it. It is surrounded by the African Bush, has your classic African bush style, a small pool to cool off in and ice cold beers. Although they did not have any craft beers available, they had most of South Africa's main stream beers available which are pretty good so we decided to grab one, have a seat and relax. We didn't have anything to eat, but the menu looked good with most of your classic pub items on it. The staff were also very friendly and welcoming. If you are ever in the Hoedspruit or Klaserie/Timbavati areas, make some time to pop in and relax.

A wonderful place, down to earth and friendly. Nice pub food and beers. very good value for money close to the Kruger national Park. The place can be a little hard to find, but once there it's hard not to like it. The location is really in the bush, with all the sights, sounds and fragrances.

My husband and I stayed at the Bush Pub for 2 nights and really enjoyed our time there. The property is really beautiful and green and you to have access to two pools which is great when the weather is 40 degrees. Our room was very clean and had everything we needed. Having a restaurant and bar on the property made things very convenient too!

This is a late reveiw, you know when you get back from traveling so much to do, anyway here are my thoughts. Although I only stayed one night, had a great stay, room was clean and well appointed, with easy access to car parking area and the bar. Staff were helpfull and we had some good conversations, food was good both Dinner and Breakfast, and of course the beers were cold. To top it all a couple of Honey Badgers turned up for dinner, bloody great. would I use the Bush Pub again certainly will, in fact the trip I have in 2024 will most likely put me there again.

The facilities are top notch. It is located just outside the Timbavati Game Reserve (a part of the Greater Kruger and connected to Kruger National Park). The food is excellent. The staff are incredibly helpful and considerate. You might even hear lions roaring just over the fence at night.

There is so much going on at the Bush Pub Inn. Some new construction…all for making a lovely setting even more comfortable. Yes, it has a pub. Yes, there is pub food and drinking and enthusiastic sports fans, at times. However, the rooms are lovely, comfortable, clean and quiet with the best showers, ever! Friendly, helpful and welcoming staff and a good value for your money. We would definitely stay here, again.

Dinner on my husband's birthday at The Bush Pub was really good, the food, service and vibe were all great. The venue has been upgraded since our last visit and has add to the atmosphere and is drawing the public. Our daughter in law had her 21st there last week and the reports from her and the family were, 'wonderful venue, great food and good service', much as we found it last night. Really worth a visit if you are in the area.
