Situated on the banks of the Crocodile River overlooking the Kruger National Park, Bushwise Safari Lodge combines the real Kruger-safari experience with luxurious accommodation - boasting a unique ambiance true to the safari adventure you are seeking.

Watch the Kruger National Park and the Crocodile River, where a variety of wildlife often drink at the water’s edge, at your leisure from the comfort of your vantage point on the upper deck, bar area or swimming pool. Become part of the African night and hear the roar of lions, the call of hyenas and the grunting of hippos coming from the dark.

From our safari lodge base, we offer our guests the thrill of personalized safari excursions into Kruger in our open-safari vehicle to seek out the Big 5 and experience all the wonders of this unique eco-system. The south eastern part of Kruger, where we operate, is well known for its superb game viewing with frequent sightings of lion and leopard.

We offer a variety of safari activities as well as excursions to suit every taste, timetable and pocket - from walks with an armed guide, half day safaris, night safaris, birdwatching walks and tiger fishing on the Komati River, to excursions to places of interest in the area, as well as the neighboring states of Mozambique and Swaziland.

Guest may book our dinner bed & breakfast option of R980.00 per person sharing per night, or our all-inclusive package of R2180 per person sharing per night. Our all-inclusive package includes accommodation for one night, all meals and return transfer from the airport in Nelspruit as well as one activity for each night booked at the lodge.

The entire lodge can also be booked for the private use of eight to ten persons, with discounted prices on request. All rates exclude beverages and alcohol.

Beautiful rooms, nice and helpful people, great to have dinner in the boma. Food was good, not too much. River walk was great - it starts just in front of the lodge.

All in all a nice place. Not enough attention to details that could make a difference. The staff were attentive and the sounds of hippos, elephants and other animals strolling outside the lodge is nice. A very interesting half-day game tour.

A group of us stayed here in early Nov. 2013 and had the best time. We did the four day/3 night special and it was such a great value. The food, the owners, the staff, the facilities, etc. were all so much more than we expected. Dinners took place in the boma outside under the stars and was such a great unexpected touch. Donald was our guide and he was fun to be around, and great at making sure we saw the Big 5 and SO much more. In addition to seeing so many amazing animals, we learned a lot on the tours, and also were able to really relax and enjoy the gorgeous views and wine from the veranda and pool. Highly recommend this place, the pictures do not do such a great place/people justice!
