The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, the amenities were very nice, the view was outstanding, and the big animals were all around. I loved my stay there. We had a view of the river from our room and were within 20 meters of elephants and giraffes.

Fabulous stay, saw " big 5 " before 09-30 and again after lunch. The hospitality shown by Tim and Annette was exceptional, as usual. Our guest from the U K could not believe his luck, and, mainly based on his stay at BUSHWISE will return to South Africa.

Great lodge very close to the gate, Annette also arranged for our transfer which was great if you are travelling by plane/bus. The food is also great. The pool area is in need of improvement, one chair is broken and the umbrella is difficult to operate.
