“Our best holydays at Bushwise”
Reviewed 17 March 2012

We spent 9 magnificients days at Bushwise Safari Lodge!! Tim and Anette support for all the activitis we want to do was superb. The conviviality with Werner and Nick in all trips that we made to Krugger, to Moçambique and to Swaziland was fantastic. Dinning on the garden under the stars, with wonderful food was a experience that we recommend. The swimming pool on the sunset with a view over Krugger is fantastic. 9 days really amazing! Thanks a lot for making our holidays a memorable experience. Probably we will be back again.... Alexandre and Elisabete

I recently stopped over at Bushwise safaris for a night on my way back form Mozambique. It was really great to enjoy the excellent hospitality and the african bush. The setting was superb and the food was even better! We made use of the awesome splash pool overlooking the crocodile river, and even spotted an elephant nearby. Sundowners on the deck was followed by a great dinner in the boma. Tim and Annette are great hosts and i will definately be back!

We spent three days at Bushwise Safari. To say it was probably the best three days holiday ever enjoyed is no exageration. The position of Bushwise so close to the Kruger is amazing...The sights and sounds will live with you forever. Tim's hospitality is second to none, eating our meals outside by a campfire and under the stars was so atmospheric. Jumping into the Infinity swimming pool after the Safari will probably one of the best swims of my life!! I think Bushwise balances guests expectations for a certain luxury without losing any charm. The whole experience, including the safari arranged by Tim was excellent. I would very much hope to be able to visit again.

Arrived at Bushwise (for the second visit) whilst on a round trip of South Africa having visited Cape Town. Chose to fly into the nearby town of Nelspruit and was collected at the airport by a member of the Bushwise staff. Immediate sense of a "bush" experience. The lodge itself is an hour's drive from the airport. Stayed in a different room this time but all rooms are basically the same. The pool on the deck very welcoming after the flights from Cape Town. Taken into the Kruger Park the next day, with the guide from the lodge, which was once again an amazing experience. The variey of animals and birds and the knowledge of the guide was an experience I would urge everyone to have. The evening meal in the "Boma" ( a sort of encircled dining area in the bush, just by lodge) was also a great experience and chatting to the other guests was interesting. You do get the African bush experience at Bushwise!

My experience at Bushwise Safari Lodge was truly in a league of its own. They ticked all the right boxes in my book including service, accomodation, friendly staff and exhillirating Kruger Park Safari rides in the company of incredibly knowledgible guides. Annette is the hostess with the mostess and Tim has the storytelling ability of an 80 year old Khoisan man.
Thanks for a wonderfully relaxing Bushveld experience.

Room Tip: Room on the second floor give you a better view of the bordering Crocodile River.
