A close friend of mine recommended Bushwise to me when I was looking for a great place to bring folks to Kruger, and they did not steer me wrong. After leading a group of 6 volunteers through Southern Africa for a week, we were hoping to find an oasis to relax and have a great bush experience at Kruger. Well, Bushwise is just that. The accommodation is top notch, the staff friendly and very knowledgeable and the food better than we could have imagined.
This intimate experience offered us a beautiful opportunity to connect to nature and one another as we sat under the African sky, whether sitting in the pool or eating dinner. Their guide was one of the more knowledgable I've come across, and the hospitality of the proprietors was classically South African.
But, on top of all that, we had a particular experience that could have tested this hospitality. As we were driving to the lodge, our van got stuck in a ditch on a dirt road about 10kms from the lodge, at 11:30pm. With no idea what to do, we called Tim at the lodge and before we could lose our cool, he and Werner (lodge manager) came to our rescue. They spent two hours digging us out and pulling us out of the ditch. We could not have gotten out without them, and they never once complained about the situation.
I strongly encourage you to stay at Bushwise and experience the best Kruger and South Africa has to offer.
