                “Tranquility with great location"


Tranquilty with loads of birds and real bushbabies! Felt like being in a reserve-but 7 minutes away from Menlyn and Brooklyn centre! Excellent beds, super breakfast. We will go back at often as possible.

                “It is a place like home"


The accommodation and service were excellent. I felt like I was in Ghana. The sound of the early birds and the friendly staff made feel at home. The mama of the house was just like mother. Expect me there again very soon.

                “Great service and extremely comfortable"


A wonderfully plush and comfortable room, complete with massive bath, shower and a million scatter cushions. Breakfast menu is good, with a lovely garden, swimming pool and trampoline. WIFI coverage could be improved but is sufficient in the dining room. Keep an eye out for the bushbabies!

Thank you very much for your warm greetings!!!

We are now back to the real life (noooooo!!), working, after having such a wonderful trip to South Africa. Thanks again for your hospitality in Pretoria. Is hard to find a place where you can feel at home, like it was the Bushbaby for us. Thanks again for all your help.


I hope you can start your spanish classes, and decide to come to South America as soon as possible. You know now you have many peruvian friends on this side of the world!


Hope to hear from you again!

                Dear Delene,


We are really grateful for your kindness and hospitality during the days that we stay in Bushbaby. Honestly, our days in Pretoria were the best period of the entire time in your great nation. It was incredible and surprising for us verifies how the South African’s are proud of their country and the history related with their origins. Congratulations for every thing that we have seen. Your really have a great place to live.


We returned to Chile telling to our families and friends the amazing trip that we enjoyed. The world cup was the perfect excuse the meet incredible people like you and your family.


Hopefully you can program in the future a trip to South America and in particular to our country. You will be well received in Chile, I promise you. Best regards, thank you for every thing, and keep in contact.

                Dear Delene,


We would like to thank you for your welcome.

Indeed, we felt at home. The biltong had a huge success.


The return in real life was a little bit brutal because in when we arrived the temperature was 37 degrees. We hope we can really return one day in this wonderful country where people are warm. Thank you for everything.

                “Now I know what 'cosy' means!”


We stayed here as a family before travelling home. The family room is REALLY spacious and beautifully equipped. The Bushbaby staff has an eye for detail in design. Breakfast comes with numerous choices and is excellent. The host is extremely kind: she put in a lot of effort to help us finding a nice restaurant to celebrate our son's birthday. The hiccups in wifi-access were taken care of and solved by ICT people during our stay. Coming in from a safari it was funny to experience the lively wildlife around the house (birds, and, yes, bushbabies at twilight).

                “Lovely B&B, highly recommended”


We were 6 ladies who stayed at The Bushbaby Inn for two nights this past weekend. The accommodation was excellent and very welcoming, the rooms have been furbished in a very clever way and they even provide things like ear buds and insect repellent!


The personnel we dealt with was very friendly and professional. The B&B is very well located in Pretoria and easy to reach from the N4.We will stay here again in the future when visiting Pretoria.

                Beste Willie, Delene, kinders,

                Christinah, Bettie en die honde,


Thank you for your message. Wim and I have returned safely to Holland after a trip that we will not easily forget. The World Cup may not have ended as we hoped but that does not change our feelings about South Africa and its people.


We have met so many nice people and we enjoyed your beautiful country. Thank you so much for the way you treated us in Lydiana. We hope all goes well with you, your country and its people.


Hartelijke groeten,

- Egbert Kraal (Netherlands)

                Hi to everybody


Please Delene send my greetings to everybody (Willie, Minnelene, Wim, Christinah, Bettie) as it was like our home in South Africa. I am glad you have started to learn spanish and we will be waiting for all of you in Argentina. Let us know if you decide to come.


- Federico (Argentina)

                Dear Delene,


We made it back to the states safely, and are adjusting to 'the real world' once again. We had a wonderful trip! We had such a nice stay at the Bushbaby Inn and truly appreciated your warm hospitality.  Your taking us to and from the USA match was especially nice and made for such a special day. The London Guardian newspaper said that the USA goal in the game was the most unforgettable moment of the World Cup, and the papers in the US are saying that it was the biggest win in the last 20 years. We are so glad to have been part of that moment.


The whole trip was fantastic and we will always have fond memories of South Africa. We'd like to come back some day, but it really is a long way, so it will probably be a few years before we are up to it. Thanks again for being the perfect hostess.


- Dave, Marty, Hannah, Elisa, and Ben Jelley (USA)
