The Bushbaby Inn is located in a small suburb in the East of Pretoria, called Lydiana. The house which became the Bushbaby Inn was built in 1966 by Mr. Piet Grobler, grandson of Minister Piet Grobler who served in General Hertzog's cabinet during the 1920's. The farm that the Groblers lived on was named after Lydia, Piet's wife. The suburb celebrated it's 50th birthday in 2008 and became part of Greater Pretoria in 1964.

Lydiana had always been a place where guests and friends were welcomed with open arms and a cup of good coffee and so, in this tradition, the Bushbaby Inn will continue to do just that.

Extensive renovations created the five luxury bedrooms, family room and public spaces and the furniture is mostly heirlooms from the Snyman and van der Walt families. The proximity of the National Botanical Gardens and the old indigenous trees growing in the Inn's garden ensure that a myriad of bird species and the Bush babies are permanent residents around the Inn.

The Bushbaby Inn has a live-in operations manager who can assist you with any queries or emergencies. Water in the guesthouse is heated with gas geysers and glass, paper, plastic and organic waste is recycled. The establishment prides itself in it's 'green' and environmentally friendly efforts.

The Bushbaby Inn provides ten spacious, well-appointed luxury rooms with full en-suite bathrooms and a family room with en-suite bathroom, shower only.

Facilities available in each room include:
. air conditioning
. a well stocked bar fridge
. safe
. hair dryer, clothing steamer.
. free wi-fi
. a glass or two of port
. and a coffee and tea tray with freshly baked supplies.

Over the moon, the accommodation was splendid and now for free!

Great service, and a wonderful place to stay. If I had to find a complaint, I would say that the shower was very temperamental, and we couldn't get the water balance eight. It was either ice cold or hell warm. But that's all that we had an issue with.

I enjoyed the facilities, the internet, the staff and above all the tranquility in the area.

Lovely rooms, exceptional service with friendly and welcoming personnel. I will always go back.

Can't wait to be in Pretoria so I can stay at Bushbaby Inn again.
