We had a nice time in the Bushewise Lodge in a very friendly atmosphere. And also the safaris we have booked (1/2 Day and Sunset Drive) have been so amazing. I'm pretty sure we will come back. The rooms were clean and nice furnished.

We were looking for a nice place to stay along the days we planned to visit Kruger Park. After reading a lot and talked with many people, we were advised to choose Bushwise Safaris. And so we did! Everything you could think and not think, will be 5 stars! Really! To choose and enjoy with absolute confidence!

My stay was a little unique in the fact that I had a group of 9 visiting for a retreat. Annette and Tim were very helpful in the pre-arrangements and sent me a lot of great information on the area and the activities available. We were looked after really well by their two guides, Zander and Johan who were great...

Hi there, Such a pity that Tim and myself could not spend more time with you and your group as we took a short break ourselves. It is always heart warming for any owner to hear that the staff did an excellent job in their absence. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Bushwise, thanks so...

We have stayed at Bushwise twice this month. The first time we did a 1-day safari tour and our guide took us off the beaten path and we had a wonderful experience. Our guide was dedicated to our experience, very knowledge and even stayed out longer than scheduled to look for lions. The lodge is well kept, clean and has...

Bushwise was an excellent place to stay during our trip to Kruger National Park. The room was beautiful and clean, and all of the common areas were just the same. We ate breakfast and dinner at the lodge each day and the food was delicious - they served a variety of different dishes. We did a safari with their tour...

We had a room on the 1st floor with view on the Crocodile river from our balcony. Good breakfast and dinner. A lot of bush-sounds at night which was fantastic and an occasional roar of a lion. We booked a sunset game drive in KNP and transport to the gate was arranged by Bushwise. Great service !!

Hi Andreas, We really appreciate that you took the time to write a review about our establishment. After the extreme drought that turned our area into a desert we just love the luscious bush where the animals once again have enough to eat at last. It was really sad to see them struggle. Luckily the Crocodile river is only 20...

We enjoyed our four night stay at Bushwise. After a month touring RSA this was the highlight of our trip. The room was exceptional with appropriate African decor. Location was great with a view over the Crocodile River. We saw Kudu, zebra, hippos, impala from our deck. The staff and Tim were great. Zander was a fine knowledgeable guide. We...

Hi there, Thanks so much for the great review. You were very lucky to see the wild dogs, I'm so jealous. You will have to come back though to find the lions. (not from our lack of trying for 4 days!) This just shows you again, it's about the right place at the right time. Until next time then. Tim

Spent four nights a Bushwise and it could not have been better. The room overlooked Kruger National Park and in the morning you can see and hear the Hippos in the Crocodile River. The room was spotless and decorated in a tasteful African motif. Zander our guide and host was outstanding, congenial and knowledgeable.

A magic Holiday, The reception was warm and friendly. The View was amazing from the Pool area and the Beers were good. The meals in the evening were well prepaired and tasted excellent. The Location is very close to the Kruger Park Gate and the outings organized by Bushwise were professional. I will definately come back again.
