Arrived at Bushwise for a 4 night stay at 8pm in heavy rain after a delayed flight to nelspruit from Cape Town. We were scheduled to arrive about 3:30pm. There were 6 of us including my 2 grand children aged 9 and 13½. Tim and Annette greeted us and arranged a delicious meal of baboortie and a bottle of bubbly for my birthday.
Marloth Park is a good location to visit the KNP, Swaziland and even Mozambique.
The view of the Crocodile River from the bar, pool and lounge is spectacular. We watched a herd of 14 elephants come to drink at sunset.
The bedrooms are a little small but acceptable, there is plenty of hot water from the gas heaters in each bathroom. The meals were good and the service fun and efficient.
Werner Thom is the resident game guide and he took us on an allday drive in KNP where we saw 4 of the big five (leopards were sleeping) Werner cooked a great breakfast at one of the KNP picnic sites. His knowledge of animals, birds and plants is extensive.
Within Marloth Park there are zebra, giraffe impala warthogs roaming freely.
If we come back to the area we will stay again at Bushwise
