The best of Africa, distilled into one lodge = Situated on the banks of the Crocodile River overlooking the Kruger National Park, Bushwise Safari Lodge combines the real Kruger-safari experience with luxurious accommodation - boasting a unique ambiance true to the safari adventure you are seeking. The lodge has 7 rooms, each with en-suite bathroom, which usually sleeps 2 people, but all the rooms are big enough to add an extra bed for a 3rd family member. We offer a bed and breakfast option as well as packages that includes game viewing activities, tours and return transfer from the airport in Nelspruit. Unfortunately we don't offer any self catering accommodation but you can add a 3-course dinner under the African sky by candle light at an additional cost. We have a lovely view over the Kruger National Park and the Crocodile River, w... Read more

Our family (20 of us, ages ranging from 6 to 73) spent 8 nights at Bushwise and had a wonderful time. As you can imagine, it was a wild and crazy bunch but Zander and Johan attended us and were very gracious throughout our visit.

It was a nice spot to commute to and from. We had 2 day tours, 2 morning walks and an evening tour of Kruger, a trip to Swaziland, a trip to Maputo and the Panoramic tour. Enjoyed every minute.

Kids spent hours in the pool. Staff provided good meals and as well as vegetarian courses.

Management response:

Hi Peggy, We enjoyed accommodating you and your family just as much. Pleased that you had a great time during all the safaris and tours. Always nice to hear good things about our staff and that we were able to meet your expectations during your visit to Kruger Park. Until next time then... Annette

We spent one night at the lodge and stayed in the newly built second lodge. Downside is that the beautiful view of the river cannot be seen from the bedroom, (upper levels of the original lodge do have spectacular views), upside is modern design, quality of accommodation and stunning décor. We did not have dinner at the lodge, but drinks on the deck next to the pool overlooking the magnificent Kruger Park whilst watching the sun go down with wildlife the river bed, provides an exceptional and unforgettable out of Africa experience. Friendly and helpful management offered to arrange drives and activities and access to this part of the park is easy. Thanks Bushwise!

Management response:

Hi Barry Thank you for the positive review, sorry it was so short. On your next visit it would be our pleasure to show you all that Kruger has to offer. With the bush being so dry now the game viewing is at its best Hope you had a good trip home Tim
