I could not be happier with my stay at Bushwise. Prior to departure, Annette was in constant contact - she was flexible with payment and even gave us packing suggestions. My travel companion did most of the communicating, but the emails I saw were friendly, helpful and timely. We were greeted at the airport on time by Werner - a very fun, knowledgable guide. He stayed with us all week - taking us to Blyde River Canyon (and agreeing to a detour on the way home to find soy milk for me), and expertly leading us through Kruger Park on our all day safari drive. He ate dinner with us each night and entertained us afterwards. I felt like a house guest, not a paying client. Tim and Annette eagerly asked about our days over happy hour drinks and shared their own stories. When we asked for a good running route, Tim even drove us along his favorite path so we would know where to go. The food at breakfast and dinner was abundant and freshly prepared, and there were plenty of opportunities to stop for snacks, lunch, and water on each of our days out. Our rooms were simply adorned and comfortable, and I had no trouble with bugs at night. At the end of our stay, Tim and Annette even arranged for our transfer to meet a friend in Maputo. They could not have made the trip more logistically easy for us. I highly recommend this lodge.
