About Bushwise Safari Lodge Kruger Park

The best of Africa, distilled into one lodge – Bushwise Safari lodge. We are situated on the banks of the Crocodile River with exquisite views over the Kruger National Park and the animals wander freely around the lodge – this makes what we have to offer quite unique.
We are only a 1-minute walk from the Crocodile River and the border of the Kruge Park. From the lodge - Watch the Kruger National Park and the Crocodile River where a variety of wildlife often drink at the water’s edge from the comfort of our rendezvous point on the upper deck, bar area and sparkling infinity pool. Enjoy a sun-downer while watching yet another magnificent sunset over the African bush. Become part of the African night, hear the roar of lion, the eerie call of hyena and the grunting of hippos coming from the dark.
From our Safari Lodge base, we offer 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, elephant-back safaris, quad biking, and horse riding, to excursions to the neighboring states of Mozambique and Swaziland and the splendorous Panorama route.
Bushwise Safari Lodge combines the real Kruger Safari adventure you are seeking, with comfortable accommodation in rooms decorated with a rustic touch inspired by the African bush.

              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.

              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.
