Property description

The best of Africa distilled into one lodge - Bushwise Safaris and Lodge is owner managed by Tim and Annette. With a hands-on approach, our costs are lower, so we are able to offer luxurious accommodation, outstanding safaris, delicious meals and excellent service at affordable prices. The lodge has five elegantly furnished, air conditioned double/twin rooms, all with bathrooms en-suite. All the rooms are big enough to fit another bed to accommodate a family with children. The two upper storey bedrooms each have their own private balcony with views over the Crocodile River into the Kruger Park. We remain small and personal, so our guests can be comfortably accommodated and cared for. The upper deck is open to the elements to breath in the African bush experience. The swimming pool is upstaris from which one can look into Kruger and watch the wild life coming down to the river to drink and play in the evenings.
On our open vehicle safaris into Kruger we often see the big five and most of what Kruger has to offer. We depart the lodge early and your guide will cook you breakfast inside the Kruger at one of the picnic spots over looking a water hole.
At Bushwise Safaris we are passionate about the African bush and the preservation and protection of this unique eco-system, so join us on a Bush safari, let us be your hosts and guide, let us show you our Africa...
