Bushwise safari Lodge is a clean well furnished and comfortable lodge. The staff at bushwise are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was always served on time and according to clients desire. Dinner was always a great surprise!!!. We went for a sunset safari drive in the Kruger and our guide from Bushwise Safari Lodge(Viljoen) dropped us off on time. We... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Bushwise this past December for only one night, but the experience was jampacked. The lodge and rooms are fairly luxurious and the game viewing was unbelievable and easy to set up, due to the logistics work of Annette and Tim. The food is great and the view is excellent. During our stay there was... More

We really enjoyed our stay. Amazing staff. The dinners were amazing. The Friday evening we were the only couple having dinner but it did not stop them from creating an amazing bush atmosphere for us in the boma. Food was great. Saturday evening dinner was served on the veranda "due to weather", turned out great. Best steaks, once again food... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 days during our tour of Kruger and the low veld, 5 excellent days of service, food, basking in the sun around the pool and some really entertaining conversations with Tim and Viljoen. Our needs were met promptly and our 'pic nic' breakfasts for later eating in the park were a source of lots... More

The hotel is very nice, in a wonderful location (easy to see elephants just across the river), and the staff is wonderful. However, some services could be improved, like the cleanliness of the rooms, the provision of toiletries, and the internet (it's very expensive for a day of use and they told us to not upload or download pictures as...

Hi Thank you for your review and constructive criticism as it high lights the areas in which we can improve. Regarding the internet unfortunatly being in the bush our cost is higher.

The people were very friendly, the lodge was a fantastic setting and the safari even better. Would highly recommend to anyone considering a trip out to Kruger. Even around the lodge you get to see many different animals and from the bar/ swimming pool you can see the elephants going down to the river.

Bushwise is a top quality safari experience that is very affordable and memorable. The owners are wonderful folks, with a friendly staff, providing high quality, clean accomodations in the middle of a vibrant park experience. Situated right on the Kruger Park boarder, you can relax outside of your room and watch the Zebras walk pass you while you smell the... More

We were, to put it mildly, gobsmacked by the sights, sounds, and people we encountered in and around this beautiful, hospitable, very African place. Hosts Tim and Annette, and guide Faloun, were helpful and friendly. Décor inside and out has a “rustic/ethnic touch inspired by the African bush”, as their website aptly describes. On our very first day, driving our... More

We spent three nights at Bushwise and would have loved to stay longer. Located right on the edge of Kruger in Marloth park, you have a feeling of being right in the bush but with all the comforts of a luxury hotel. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and stylishly decorated. You have a great view from the outdoor pool... More
