Welcome to

Ascot Bush Lodge

Escape from the hustle and bustle of the city life at Ascot Bush Lodge, just a stone’s throw from the N3 and a few kilometers from the CBD of Pietermaritzburg, we offer a unique experience in an African setting, surrounded by 12 hectares of natural bush enjoyed by abundant bird life.

Whether you are travelling for business and need a home from home, or whether you are visiting family or friends you will find our accommodation comfortable, convenient and affordable.


Home to the Duzi Canoe Challenge in February. Come and sit on the banks of the Duzi River which runs through Ascot Bush Lodge to watch this International challenge.

Home away from home


Although a stone’s throw away from the N3 and Pietermaritzburg’s city center, Ascot Bush Lodge gives one the feeling of being in a remote bush environment.
