About us

Perched on top the world, sitting on a cushion of cloud Buckswood Hilltops overlooks the stunning African scenery with its famous ‘red dust’. There really is no better place to wile away your African evenings enjoying the panoramic views from the terrace, dipping your feet in the hot tub and letting the house staff cater for your culinary delights. Buckswood Hilltops is a substantial development comprising of a beautiful thatched main house that has four double rooms and a number of annexed lodges that can sleep up to 30 (all ensuite).

The house is designed to give you a comfortable stay and offers a flexible space that can be arranged for any number of possibilities such as group visits, conferences, team building trips, family get-aways to name a few examples. Equipped with wifi & run by friendly house staff your enjoyment is our pleasure.

With the stunning views, guests can wake up to an African sunrise and after a long day of adventure, return to the house and spend the evening sat on the veranda, drink in hand, watching the sun go down with the ambience of the African dusk. After the sun sets, the stars come out in a magnificent fashion, sparkling across the clear sky and merging on the distant horizon with twinkling lights from the villages in the valley.

We just want you to just feel at home…
