Had an awesome time at Bushwise, my family loved and enjoyed it, the kids had a ball with the pool...the home cooking meal is to die for. We would highly recommend Bushwise...its the best!!! The room had a lovely view...facing the crocodile river and the Kruger park across the river. Lovey walking trails...we took a walk stunning!!

Hi Hlobsile Our guests all went to bed and Tim and I decided to spend some time in the pool in the beautiful moonlight - this time of the year the water is nice and warm even at night time. The sounds of the bush at night are amazing, it feels like one has to whisper not to break the... More

We spent 3 days at Bushwise Safari in a family trip. This place is really beautiful, so quiet, with a kind of magic as you enjoy a wonderful view of the crocodile river below, hear the hippos at night and enjoy your dinner under the stars. Our stay here was amazing, Tim and Annette are really kind, they do and... More

everything ok. We spent a nice Holiday together with two safaris. The Meal also was enjoyable and the people was supportive delivering infos, etc. Just some trouble upon our arrival with the hot water, but promptly solved.
