Having stayed at a private lodge in the Kruger Park on a previous visit I was interested to see how Bushwise compared? I was travelling with a niece and her daughter after a family event elsewhere in South Africa. She (my niece) had found Bushwise via an Internet search and felt that it would be more affordable than some of...

Hi Thanks for the review . It was pleasure to have the three of you come and stay at Bushwise. I enjoyed our chats in the evening on the balcony and to hear about what your family have achieved in their endurance sports you have some thing to be very proud of there.

Everything was great! Customer service top notch! Volume - the guy who runs it is very good! Though it is 20 min to crocodile gates the location is great - awesome views of Kruger and you see some wild life right from your balcony or from the trail along the Kruger fence. We even saw lions from the path! Food...

Hi there, I think I told you before your visit that we are living in paradise, I am sure you believe me now. I will definitely tell Viljoen (our guide) that you were impressed with his guiding skills. Until after that flash then... Annette

We loved our stay at Bushwise Safaris. The room was beautiful and clean. Great long beds (very important for my husband who is 1.95 m). The food: breakfast and dinner very good. We went with Biljoen (I hope this is written correctly) for a game drive in the Kruger Park, saw the big 5 twice. We will come back. Thanks...

What a beautiful spot on the border of the park with views over the crocodile river where we saw lion, elephant, hippo giraffe and more without even crossing into the park! Hosts pulled out the stops and saved my bacon when we hit held up at the Mozambican border. We will be back! Thanks Tim and Annette!

For those wondering, Marloth Park is similar to a subdivision but set in a conservation park. You will see all sorts of antelope, zebras, warthogs and giraffes wandering around in the yards of the lodges. Don't worry though, all the large predators have been removed. It's a great place for just walking around. There are some shops and a couple...
