I went to Budmarsh Lodge in the Magaliesberg to compile a bird list, but was bowled over not just by the birds, but also by the lodge’s location, its 5-star luxury accommodation, and most of all, by its food.
Recently, our resident Cape clawless otter, which lives in one of the nearby dams, made an appearance in the dead of night to feast on a dinner of Peking duck.
Budmarsh is a nature lover's dream come true. This little guy dropped in to say hello, and is now ensconced in the loving arms of our infatuated staff at reception.
While strolling around the gorgeous grounds, enjoying the peace of the picturesque surrounds, I spotted Executive Chef Chris Tustian tending to his herb garden below the expansive Swiss window of the Budmarsh kitchen.
Sometimes, when you're feeling overwhelmed and in need of some time to yourself, the best way to recharge your batteries is to immerse yourself in the great outdoors. At Budmarsh, we take pride in being able to create a luxurious haven for our guests, surrounded by one of South Africa's most beautiful slices of nature - the Magaliesberg.
Our new website showcases the very best of what Budmarsh has to offer its guests, from luxurious accommodation and memorable fine dining, to scenic natural surrounds and special events.
