About Bushwise Safari Lodge Kruger Park

The best of Africa, distilled into one lodge - Bushwise Safari Lodge.
We are one of the very view establishments in Marloth Park that is situated right on the banks of the Crocodile River, with an exquisite view over the river and the Kruger Park. We are only a 1-minute walk from the river and the border of Kruger Park. The animals wander freely around the lodge - this makes what we have to offer quite unique.

Three options of accommodation available, to suit every pocket.
THE ROOMS IN THE LODGE.
Accommodation in our more luxurious, air-conditioned bedrooms with the choice of a king-size bed or two single beds can be arranged.
The en-suite bathroom has either a shower and/or bath.
Two of the rooms on the upper floor have a private balcony, overlooking the Crocodile River and Kruger Park. The rooms downstairs have big sliding doors opening onto a private patio with direct access to the bush and the river in front of the lodge.
The bedrooms in the lodge have access to the infinity swimming pool and open balcony on the upper floor, with an exquisite view over Kruger Park and the Crocodile River.
Access to a communal boma with braai facilities, cutlery, and crockery will be provided.
Tea and Coffee Tray.
Free WiFi.
Daily cleaning services included.

From our Safari Lodge base, we offer all of our guests the thrill of personalized game viewing safaris into Kruger in our open safari vehicle in search of the Big Five and all the wonders the African bush has to offer. Our guides have a passion for the African bush and its creatures and can't wait to share their vast knowledge of this unique eco-system with you. The South-Eastern part of Kruger where we operate is well known for its superb game viewing, with frequent sightings of lion and leopard.

Our different options will suit every taste, timetable, and pocket. From game viewing safaris, morning walks, and sunset safaris inside the Kruger Park, bird watching around the lodge, tiger fishing on the Komati River, quad biking, and horse riding, to excursions to the neighbouring states of Mozambique and Swaziland and the splendorous Panorama route.

Safaris and self-drive excursions:
Kindly note that due to current restrictions due to Covid19, only some of our activities are currently available. Please enquire at the front desk. If you're planning to enter Kruger Park in your own vehicle, we strongly suggest that you pre-book on the SANParks website in order to guarantee your entry and avoid long queues. Our closest gate is the Crocodile Bridge Gate - only 18 km from us. Malelane Gate is 45 km from us.

Swimming pool:
Facilities at the lodge are for guests who have booked the more expensive rooms in the lodge only, but if we are not too busy, access to the swimming pool and open balcony, with an exquisite view over Kruger Park and the Crocodile River, will be allowed.

Lodge bedrooms:
No self-catering facilities in the lodge bedrooms, but you will have access to a communal boma with braai facilities, Cutlery, and crockery will be provided.

Additional Guests:
If the size of your party changes, please let us know as the rates are per person and any extra persons will need to be charged.
The rooms in the lodge and the self-catering unit are all big enough to add an extra bed which can be provided on request; Children 12 and older are charged full price, children 11 and younger are charged half price, children 1 and younger may stay for free.

Views:
Kindly note that the self-catering unit and the self-catering bedroom are semi-attached and are situated behind the lodge. Both of these units are facing the natural bushveld of the nature conservancy, Marloth park, where animals wander freely on a daily basis. They, therefore, do not have views of the Crocodile River and Kruger Park.

Television:
We are sure that one of the reasons why you've booked with us is because you have a deep desire to escape from city life, if only for a few days. Therefore we strongly believe that you prefer the sounds of the African bush and its creatures instead – for this reason, there is no television in any of our accommodation facilities. For the TV enthusiast – there are big-screen televisions in all the restaurants in the area very close to us.

Noise Pollution:
As it is a nature conservancy, no loud music allowed. Fines applicable.

              I had booked a room and spoken to the owner where by she said because I have booked so long ago I would be on the upper deck where by I would be looking over the River as it would be a great view. We spoke about is as she also asked me if I would be a romantic getaway or if it was friends and I mentioned that it was myself and my partner so it would be a romantic get away. She then responded that she would organise queen size bed rather then two single beds next to one another. Upon my arrive I was greeted by the other owner of which they took me through the venue. When we were shown our room,...

              Fantastic bush breakaway from the city in the very capable and hospitable hands of the Bushwise team. The open pool deck was sunny, well shaded and perfect for relaxing and watching animals across the river in the Kruger. The lodge room we stayed in was very comfortable, clean and serviced daily. We stayed in one of the upper level rooms with a private balcony which offered great views into the park. The three course supper at Bushwise that we opted for after a night game drive in the Park was delicious!Marloth Park itself offers well maintained walking paths along the Kruger fence. There is...

              We were 2 families staying for the weekend to celebrate my birthday and it was just what we wanted. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable, the dinners at the boma were delicious and the host, Rick was wonderful and extremely helpful.  The view over the river was perfect. Thankyou for a great weekend.
