Our family stayed for 6 nights and really enjoyed the hospitality, food, and location. Just sitting on the balconies of our rooms, or walking along the fence we could look at toward the Crocodile River and see many different animals- elephants, giraffes, hippos, crocodiles, Cape buffalo, zebra, etc. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the breakfasts, and dinner under...

We had 13 people in our group and thoroughly enjoyed the lodge. The location inside Marloth Park was very cool - we encountered zebra, giraffes, and Duiker (small antelope) just outside our lodge. Our host, Zander, although new, looks after us attentively and helped us get our excursions booked and organized. And the excursions were fantastic! Our group saw the... More

We stayed six nights with meals. We were upstairs and had a great view over to the crocodile river. In our first hour we saw kudu, elephants, hippos, and crocs. We Scheduled tours for everyday and enjoyed them all. I felt this was a good value and enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend.

We were blown away by Bushwise Safaris. As nature lovers we felt it was such a beautiful place to stay in the heart of Marloth. Bushwise has a view of the Kruger park- at night we heard the roars of lions! The service was excellent- we were made to feel completely at home.
