My husband and I stayed for 8 days and had a unique experience. Everything exceeded our expectations. Tim, Annette, Werner and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Outside the lodge, we met zebras, warthogs, giraffes and impalas and from the pool, we could see elephants and buffalo wander down to the river in the Kruger Park. It was like... More

We stayed with Tim and Annette for 3 nights earlier this month, and it was like visitng friends. We were made to feel so welcome, the lodge was just perfect, the rooms lovely and very clean. The atmosphere is so relaxed and we really enjoyed eating in the Boma under the stars, with the other guest who soon became friends,... More

I think we have stayed with Tim and Annettee at Bushwise 3 times this year and each time we have seen something different in Marloth and in the Kruger Park. We had such a wonderful time and were made to feel like family and the sundowner drinks on the river were a highlight of the weekend. Be back again soon... More

We have stayed twice at the Bushwise, enjoying it both times. This is a place with character where you can relax after a long days game viewing in the nearby Kruger Park. Yet it feels as if you're still in the Kruger. You are about 20 - 25 minutes drive from the Crocodile Bridge gate and 40 minutes from Maleane... More

This place is in the middle of nowhere 7 hours drive from Joburg and one hour from the nearest gate into Kruger. It is just a middle market charmless home in a noisy declining housing esate miles from any Kruger gate. But prices are still moderate game lodge prices. You would do better in one of the Governnment lodges inside... More

Dear Levenberg, Thank you so much for your honest opinion about Bushwise Safaris. As mentioned in our directions that is sent to every guest before they arrive, we are 425 km from the OR Tambo airport in Johannesburg, and the N4 highway runs all the way from Johannesburg all the way to our door step.

The location was great, especially for walks along the river. The carpet in the bathroom was revolting and overall I think the room was more 3*. The food was delicious. The place was not very infant friendly and we were unable to take advantage of the upstairs area. Also a frog kept us awake at night.
