About Littlebushveld Guesthouse

rooiborslaksman01.png

Prepare yourself for a real slow-life experience. Only 18 km from the city centre of Pretoria lies this gem of virtually unspoilt bushveld where the morning calls of crimson-breasted shrikes, guineafowls and bush partridges wake you. At night the occasional calls of jackals deepen the sense of being part of nature. Amongst the acacia trees and next to a campfire you will experience a peace and tranquillity unknown so close to a big, modern city.

Littlebushveld is established on a smallholding with a number of self-catering chalets that offer the comfort and amenities you enjoy at home with an equipped kitchenette in every chalet, bathroom for your private use, shaded areas to sit and relax and with equipped braai areas.

We also offer a bush camp with a very private setting to enhance the bush atmosphere. Here you are guaranteed a 'bush experience' unheard of so close to a big modern city with a small en-suite bathroom for night-use as well as an outside bush-shower in a wood-fenced boma under a tree providing an exciting shower experience, very private, the birds will, however, be able to observe.

Littlebushveld situated next to the fence of a 3,000-hectare farm. Very quiet and safe environment protected by electrified perimeter fencing. Shaded and safe parking. Our facilities are for those who want to take a quiet, slow-life break from the rushed modern life and just want to enjoy the peaceful bushveld environment.

A very relaxing time is a definite promise!

The Crimson-Breasted Shrike

(Afrikaans: Rooiborslaksman)

The crimson-breasted shrike (Laniarius atrococcineus) or the crimson-breasted gonolek, is a Southern African bird. It has black upper parts with a white flash on the wing, and bright scarlet underparts. The International Union for Conservation of Nature has rated it as a Least-concern species

The sexes have the same colouration and are indistinguishable from each other. The upper parts, including the wings and tail, are black, the wings having a broad white bar. The underparts are vivid scarlet. A yellow-breasted form is occasionally seen and was at first thought to be a separate species. Young birds have a mottled and barred buff-brown appearance with a pale bill.

This shrike is extremely nimble and restless, its penetrating whistles often being the first sign of its presence, although it is not a shy species.

The crimson-breasted shrike is non-migratory and occurs in a broad swathe from southern Angola to the Free State province in South Africa. Its preferred habitat is drier thornbush areas, in thickets and riparian scrub. It makes small seasonal migrations, preferring lower altitudes during cold periods.
