Thank you Tim and Anette, Werner and Donald for a fantastic bush experience! We spent a wonderful 3 nights at Bushwise. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. We loved the crisp white linen and the African decor of our comfortable rooms. Scrumptious meals were served in the boma under the stars and we spent lovely times on the... More

I spent 2 nights at Bushwise safaris with my son in April. We had the most wonderful stay and the staff at the lodge were warm and friendly. They went out of their way to make our 3 days there enjoyable and comfortable. I had specific dietary requirements and they provided me with simple tasty food that was both dairy... More

The knowledgeable, friendly staff, Werner and Donald provided wonderful experiences on the bush drives and excursions, and very prompt transfer from the airport. The... More

A close friend of mine recommended Bushwise to me when I was looking for a great place to bring folks to Kruger, and they did not steer me wrong. After leading a group of 6 volunteers through Southern Africa for a week, we were hoping to find an oasis to relax and have a great bush experience at Kruger. Well,... More

Not having taken a break for a while I decided to go down and visit Tim and Annette at Bushwise Safaris again, they are running a special !

The group I was with had a fantastic time here. The rooms were clean, air conditioned with comfortable beds. The food was good and the views from the roof pool/dining area were spectacular. The staff made the stay, Tim (Owner) and the guides Vernor and Donald were incredibly knowledgeable and their stories about things they'd experienced inside the park were... More

The Bushwise Safari staff is incredible. Our group stayed there for 3 nights. They are helpful, courteous and entertaining in sharing their stories of encounters with the wild game animals. The views are unparalleled, their accommodations are clean and comfortable and their staff is available 24/7. Their guided tours of Kruger National Park are top-notch, and they are willing to...

Had an amazing two days! Thanks for the hospitality! Unfortunately we only had roughly 48 hours in this lodge. Lovely dinner and amazing half day safari. We couldn't have asked for more. Thanks Tim! Hope to be able to return some time down the road.

We stayed at Bushwise 3 nights and found the place to be terrible all-around. The senior staff were not hotel people but animal park guides. The kitchen / housekeeping staff were surly. None of the staff seemed like they liked their jobs and seemed to hide from the guests. The dinner food was the worst and inedible. We ended up... More

Hello again, Thank you for your comments about Bushwise Safaris, we will always strive to improve in every aspect. Such a pity that you did not enjoy your stay with us, especially with the bugs here in the bush, something that we have no control over. Interesting fact is that the stink bug only appears for about one week every... More
