The heat is on not only in the kitchen.

A property close to Budmarsh decided to burn their dumping site and as nature would have it, an August wind arose and the fire spread rapidly and powerfully into the grass of the lodge.  Fortunately the dams, canals and small bodies of water on the farm prevented the fire from reaching the Lodge or the staff quarters.

Searching for the elusive Budmarshes

Budmarshes are little creatures that thrive in spaces of happiness. There is a great deal to be said about them. Recently some children visiting Budmarsh Country Lodge over Easter decided to search for them.

Bowled over at Budmarsh

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.

Nature has its moments

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.

The latest visitor to room 10

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.

Budmarsh - a sensory experience

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.
