Hi Ashok,
What an amazing family and group of friends you have. It was wonderful to have you all here. Thank you for choosing Bushwise Safaris as your holiday destination in this amazing country of ours. It was wonderful to have your daughter telling me with stars in her eyes about her favorite elephants and all the other animals.
Safe travels and hoping you see you all real soon.
Tim, Annette and the rest of our Bushwise team.

Huge apologies for the Guys at bushwise, so sorry for being a bit late for our review after we visited in April!
Hospitality was lovely, we were catered for on both nights we stayed for. Our good friends joined us for an evening and enjoyed a great meal and (ahem) a few drinks
We were lucky enough to get an upstairs room with stunning views over Kruger.
If you are self drive, you can use the perimeter road of Marloth to explore the boundary fence to Kruger or bush wise can organise bush walks, Kruger trips, and a whole host of other activities
wildlife in Marloth is supposed to be "safe" but do be careful as when we where there a couple of lioness were in the area along with a Leopard that had come over/through the fence from Kruger.
Over all, I would recommend Bushwise. lovely rooms, good bar (oh dear) good food and great hosts.
"I'll be back!"

Room tip: upstairs room for the view over Kruger but if you get a ground floor room do not be upset as Zebra, etc will visit for game pellets!!!!

we had wonderful 3 days safari experience with 3 activities we could choose. House is amazing and beakfast wasmore than you can espect. evening we got romantic barbeque dinner and we could relax behind the bar and hear nice stories of owner. little swimming on terrasse was great cooling down for kids and you could do nice walks around the house. Zeepras, antilopes and other wild animal walking just through the garden. Rooms are huge and very clean and fully equipt. there's everything you need. Confortable beds and just so homy athmosphere. I wanted to stay longer, no problem. At the safries we saw lot of animals, more than just big 5. then we went also to qwad riding, because eliphant interaction was cacelled because of big groep. didn't matter! our stay was perfect and for that money! We got much more than we expected!

Spent a great few days at the lodge and in the Kruger Park and surrounds. The lodge is beautifully positioned with a stunning pool deck and views over the Kruger with easy access to the Crocodile Bridge entrance. Owners Tim and Annette took personal interest in our needs and the evening

Hi Barrry,
Great to have you come and stay again. Annette loved spending some time with your adorable grand children.
Glad our guides could enrich you with their passion and knowledge and introduce your grand children to the magic of the African bush and its creatures.
Until next time ... take care.

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Bushwise Safaris on our honeymoon and the experience was exceptional! On arrival, Johan (Bushwise guide) greeted us and showed us to our room which overlooked the Crocodile river. We made use of the amazing pool while watching elephants across the river in Kruger. We took a half day game drive into Kruger with Johan. His knowledge and skills of the African bush was great - we even saw a Lion and Leopard at the same sighting! The rooms at the lodge are perfect and the food was of the highest standard. Thanks to Tim and Annette for their great hospitality. We'll be back.

Hi Ross,
Myself and the rest of the Bushwise team are wishing you an amazing future together - we were honored to have you spend a portion of your honeymoon with us. We started Bushwise in 2000 and has since never had guests having seen lions and leopard at the same sighting - you are exceptionally privileged to have been part of this once in a lifetime experience. I've heard how fond you are of your bike, so I am glad that you could fit in a mountain bike ride along the Kruger park fence on the banks of the Crocodile river.
It was great to have you both here - we are looking forward to welcome you back soon.
Annette
