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...

The room was stunning and super clean. The food was great, and staff friendly. I would definately come visit again. We went for a lovely bicycle ride through the lush green velt. The Kruger was particularly beatifull and green with all the rain that has fallen.

A wonderful spot overlooking the river at the southern edge of Kruger so easy to access on the main N4. Great accommodation and supper in the Boma under the stars. Lovely infinity pool on the 1st floor.
