“Our committee was unanimous in awarding your establishment an AA Highly Recommended endorsement status in the category Game & Nature Reserve for the coming year,” Priscilla Mabilisa of the AA advised this week.
Anton Early, manager at Warthogs Bush Camp welcomes this award and recognition: “Warthogs is one of the few unspoilt camps in the area where one can truly relax and just get in touch with nature, with your human and dog companions by your side.
By becoming part of the AA Quality Assured Accommodation Programme, Warthogs Bush Camp is now part of an internationally recognised and trusted brand, one that guarantees integrity and transparency.
Warthogs Bush Camp was acquired by the Guvon Hotels & Spas group mid 2016 and is 2km away from Askari Game Lodge & Spa, the Big 5 property in the portfolio. This small bush lodge is tucked away in the Magalies Meander, an hour’s drive from both Johannesburg and Pretoria, and is known for bush hospitality and simplicity. Enjoy a hearty, unpretentious brunch which includes pap, wors and eggs, to dinner themes around braai menus, spit braais and potjiekos recipes. Although bed and breakfast is available, many guests opt for the self-catering stays.
A range of outdoor activities from walking trails, to mountain biking and 4×4 tracking (upon prior arrangement) are available. Kids will enjoy the pool and are encouraged to bring their mountain bikes for a bit of roughing it in the countryside. A large multi-purpose Bush Lapa venue caters for up to 120 people when seated. It’s drop down canvas sides creates a cozy atmosphere even in winter, within this spacious thatch structure.
Guests stay over in ten individual chalets which all have small wooden decks and are decorated in earthy tones, all set within a tree canopy. The bathroom with its outside shower is a real treat and brings guests just a touch closer to nature.
Recent upgrades to the camp included the repainting of the exterior, upgrading the pool, addition of braai facilities, the addition of a boma area and upgrades to the function venue and entertainment area. New linen and self-catering items have been put in place to enhance the guest experience.
A number of camping sites and ablution blocks are being added at the moment and upgrades of the mountain top picnic site will soon be completed.
