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...

If you're coming to Kruger, Bushwise is the place to stay! The owner Tim and staff Donald and Werner were fabulous. Accommodation was top notch quality and comfort, views directly across the Crocodile River into Kruger was awesome, food (breakfast and dinner) was stellar, and the guided safaris (full day & sunset drive) were so much fun. Best part of... More

Thank you for staying at Bushwise Safaris, we enjoyed having you and your group with us for the two nights. Pity is wasn't longer as we would have been able to show you more of what Kruger has to offer. The day after you left a Pride of lions (two males and three females) killed a Buffalo in the evening...

We had a wonderful time at Bushwise. Didn't have to worry about a thing, from being to collected at the airport, all the food and drink we needed, the fantastic safaris we had. Tim & Annette are wonderful hosts!

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.
