This was an absolute great place to stay for 3 days. With Annette and Tim giving warm welcomes and attending to our every need. The lodge is situated exactly in the heart of nature, having the crocodile river and game roaming freely at your finger tips. Rooms are to perfection and at night time just resting on the balcony hearing... More

We really enjoyed our trip to Mpumalanga with my fiance and our friends Brenda & Munya (also a couple). We started planning our little vacay in May 2014 and went to Bushwise in July. We chose Bushwise because we felt they catered for our every needs esp the fact that we did not have to worry about cooking & etc.... More

Bushwise was an outstanding place to relax after an long day exploring Kruger National Park. The "neighborhood" of Marloth Park is actually a game reserve in its own right with zebras and giraffes appearing out of the bush as you drive to the lodge. Such an African experience! At Bushwise, the views of the Crocodile River are inspiring and the... More

My brother, mom and I all stayed at Bushwise for five nights and had the most incredible time! We were greeted at the airport by Donald and met upon our arrival at the Lodge by Tim. We immediately felt welcome. We had the most amazing day-long safari drives guided by Donald. He is extremely knowledgeable about the animals and the... More

Staying at Bushwise was a quiet and enjoyable experience. The focus is clearly on the game drives. The staff are all qualified game guides (as opposed to hospitality-industry folks). Pros: Package deal – everything (almost) was sorted for us, starting with pick-up / return to the airport (~2 hour drive), game drives, most meals, etc. The lodge is an incredibly... More

We have just returned from yet another superb stay at Bushwise Safaris. . Thank you so much Tim and Annette for your wonderful hospitality. We always feel as if we are returning "home" on all our visits to Bushwise ... and count the days till the next visit. Although we were 'self drive', we thoroughly enjoyed all the bush stories...
