My husband and I stayed at Bushwise with Tim and Annette for 4 nights. During that time we went to Kruger twice for a morning safari, once for an evening safari and once for a walk through the bush. Weirner took us on all the safaris and his knowledge of the animals and the place and his great stories of growing up amongst the animals and the beauty was really enjoyable.
Tim and Annette could not have been any more welcoming. Tim collected us from the airport and took us back there too. He explained what we could do around there and answered all of our questons. Annette was a real help in planning the trip via email (from my many emails from Australia).
The lodge is wonderful and peaceful. The other travellers we met and had our meals and safari with were great. Tim always made a point of everyone introducing themselves to the newcomers and that was a wonderful thing to do - as then everyone would chat amongst each other.
Our last day was spent at the lodge while others had gone on a safari - it was so peaceful and such a lovely place to relax before our trip home. Marloth Park is a wonderful place to stay......not too close to Kruger but with its own animals grazing by the roadside.
We can see why so many others have stayed there many times after.......we will be back!!!!!
