The best of Africa, distilled into one lodge – Bushwise Safari lodge. We are situated on the banks of the Crocodile River with exquisite views over the Kruger National Park and the animals wander freely around the lodge – this makes what we have to offer quite unique. Watch the Kruger National Park and the Crocodile River where a variety of wildlife often drink at the water’s edge from the comfort of our rendezvous point on the upper deck, bar area and sparkling infinity pool. Enjoy a sun-downer while watching yet another magnificent sunset over the African bush. Become part of the African night, hear the roar of lion, the eerie call of hyena and the grunting of hippos coming from the dark. From our Safari Lodge base, we offer our guests the thrill of personalized game viewing safaris into Kruger in our open safari vehicle in search for the Big Five and all the wonders the African bush has to offer. Our guides have a passion for the African bush and its creatures and can't wait to share their vast knowledge of this unique eco-system with you. The South Eastern part of Kruger where we operate is well known for its superb game viewing, with frequent sightings of lion and leopard. Our different options will suit every taste, timetable, and pocket - from game viewing safaris, morning walks and sunset safaris inside the Kruger Park, bird watching around the lodge, tiger fishing on the Komati river, elephant-back safaris, quad biking and horse riding, to excursions to the neighboring states of Mozambique and Swaziland and the splendorous Panorama route. Accommodation options Bushwise Safari Lodge combines the real Kruger Safari adventure you are seeking with comfortable accommodation in rooms decorated with a rustic touch inspired by the African bush.

We were very happy with our stay at Bushwise safari lodge, we had a room with balcony and a beautiful view overlooking the crocodile river. At night we could hear hippos and the hyenas calling in the kruger park and in the morning we were greeted with their presence running along the crocodile river. Thanks to Annette and team for a very clean room and also the extra arrangements that we had requested. We will definitely recommend Bushwise Safari Lodge for anyone who wants a quick break or even a holiday in Marloth Park, proper african Bush experience.

Hi Francois, Thank you for putting into words what our future guests can expect when staying with us. We are extremely lucky to be one of the very few establishments in Marloth Park that are situated right on the banks of the Crocodile river with an exquisite view over the Kruger Park - where all of the Big Five have been spotted from our own balcony. We are only a one-minute walk to the river, and taking a stroll along the river, one can expect to see just as many animals, as when visiting the Kruger itself. Hope you had a nice trip home. Keep in touch. Annette

At arrival we had a warm welcome. We were helped and orientated about our surroundings. We aren't use of bush life,but this was a great experience.The rooms are clean, peaceful the staff are friendly and helpful. I could just whattsapp Annette for anything,like what time we like to have breakfast,they were always aware of our whereabouts,that was great.We felt part of a family. The view on the river is great,what an experience we had as city people. I recommend anyone who like to experience bushlife,to go there. We didn't even miss to watch TV to much to see and do. Thank you guys keep up the high standards.

Hi Gaetsosiwe, It was wonderful having you and your family here. It is through your words that we realize yet again what a wonderful place we live in. Not many people can boast to have zebra, giraffe, kudu, impala, warthog, and blue wildebeest in their garden on a daily basis, not to mention the wealth of birdlife. And then of course the expectation to see hippo, crocodile, elephant, and perhaps the rest of the Big Five just on the Kruger side of the fence! Until we meet again soon. Annette

Krishenda thanks so much for your review. You are one of the most polite and kind people I have ever met! We are delighted to hear that you have enjoyed your stay here at Bushwise. I believe that we are one of the very few establishments that can view the animals in the Kruger Park from inside our swimming pool! We count ourselves lucky. Hope to see you again soon. Annette

Hi Mmogo, It was wonderful to have the two of you stay with us - thanks again for your support. Glad to hear that you found the peace and quiet that you were looking for during your stay with us, away from the rush of city life, if only for a short while. Hope that you could take fond memories of Bushwise home with you. Until next time then.... Annette

Our stay was fantastic! The owner was on hand to sort us out immediately and attended to any of our needs. Sundowners at the balcony bar with views of the River, elephants, and the setting sun is not to be missed. A great overnight stay for anyone en route or exiting Kruger, or if you’re looking for some peace and solitude in the bush.
