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. The animals wander freely around the lodge - this makes what we have to offer quite unique.
It is our passion to make this little piece of paradise in Africa that we call our home, available to all. We strive to meet everyone's needs and expectations, with different options to suit every pocket.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are available on request at an additional fee.
Extra bed/s can be requested at an additional fee and on request.
We also offer transport from/to the Nelspruit airport, bus depot in Nelspruit, and Komatipoort at an additional fee and on request.
From our Safari Lodge base, we offer all of our guests the thrill of personalized game viewing safaris, sunset safaris into Kruger in open safari vehicles, in search of the Big Five and all the wonders the African bush has to offer. Morning walks with armed guides are also available. 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. Other activities include tiger fishing on the Komati River, quad biking, elephant interaction, and horse riding.

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 around on a daily basis. Therefore, these accommodation options do not have views of the Crocodile River and Kruger Park.
The lodge rooms upstairs have an exquisite view over Kruger Park and the Crocodile River.
The Deluxe double rooms and the lodge rooms downstairs: Although these rooms are all facing Kruger Park and the Crocodile River, the views are that of the natural bushveld in front of the lodge. These rooms are all only 50 meters from the banks of the Crocodile River, which forms the border between us and Kruger Park.

Cleaning services:
Cleaning services are included in the rate.

Self-drive to Kruger Park in your own vehicle:
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.

Safaris, tours, and activities that we offer:
Kindly note that due to current restrictions due to Covid19, only some of our activities are currently available. Please enquire at the front desk. Please note that all safaris, tours, and activities need to be booked in advance, in order to secure your seat.

Additional Guests:
The lodge rooms downstairs, and the self-catering unit are all big enough to add an extra bed which can be provided on request. However, if the size of your party changes, please let us know as the rates are per person and an extra person will be charged an additional fee:
Children aged 1 and younger stay free.
Children aged between 2 and 11 pay 50% of the sharing rate.
Children aged 12 and older pay full price.

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 would love the sounds of the African bush and its creatures. For this reason, there is no television in any of our accommodation facilities. However, for the TV enthusiast – there are big-screen TV's in a lot of the restaurants in the area very close to us.

Noise Pollution:
As it is a nature conservancy, no loud music is allowed. The security company in Marloth Park will arrive if they receive complaints, and a fine will be issued.

                      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.

                      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.
