Bushwise Safari Lodge is built along the banks of the Crocodile River, Kruger National Park, South Africa. This river forms the park’s southern boundary and provides a water resource for wildlife when it is scarce in winter.
Every month of the year has its appeal in this region, although the drier months of August and September are good for game-viewing when the animals are easier to see. The bushveld surrounding Crocodile River, Kruger National Park, South Africa at this time is very dry.
The rains break usually in October or November which transforms this wilderness into a verdant jungle within a few weeks. Animals tend to disperse and many species no longer rely on waterholes and other resources, but there is an upsurge of migrant bird species and insect life. The rainy season peaks in December, January and February and then tails off in March and April.
Bushwise Safari Lodge can be reached on excellent roads from Gauteng. There is a bus service from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg to Nelspruit. Guests can also fly to Nelspruit (KMIA airport). Lodge transfers can be arranged from and to KMIA and the Nelspruit bus depot.
