Marloth Park - It is a great bush experience and for those who want to be surrounded by wildlife and love the bush as a whole Marloth Park is the perfect place.

Nice destination very quiet - We like the place, the people there are very helpful.
But there is no public transportation. Very difficult to move inside.
From there you cannot travel to big cities exemple Durban. You have to return to Johannesburg to go to Durban!
But you CAN go to kruger park from the south entrance malelane and you CAN see the big five!
Marloth Park as a wild life bush experience - Marloth Park is an excellent way to get away to the Bush, to encounter wild animals and clear the mind.

RELAXING - Good opportunity to break away for a long weekend.

Review on Marloth Park - We enjoyed Marloth Park ! It is close to the Kruger Park. It is great for running and mountain biking. We had lunch and various of the lodges which we thoroughly enjoyed. Komatipoort is not too far away if you need provisions, if not, the shops in Marloth Park are quite adequate. We enjoyed going to the Municipal Park and swimming pool. It is lovely and overlooks the river. The house we rented was so private we felt as though we were on our own in the middle of the bush! The only negative is there seems to be quite a lot of theft and baboons doing damage. However if you lock up securely when you are out it should not be a problem. We loved it and will definitely return.

Peaceful and quiet - Marloth Park is very nice place. Basic commodities are available at the cute little shops (a little more expensive than the big towns and chain stores, obviously) - coin laundry, bakery also.
You need to buy bottled water (they sell it at 90c a litre, bring your own container, next to bush centre).
If you don't want to go to the Kruger for the day, you can just go down to the river early in the morning or before sunset to see animals come to drink water.
we saw a lion, herd of elephants, buffalo, and croc
each house/ unit is very private due to the tall bushes around you
you feel like there's no one around you
but you cant see the river if you not staying right on crocodile road (i.e. right on the river)

Peaceful - Nature at its best, that is Marloth Park. It was our first visit and it won't be our last. We enjoyed our stay very much. The animals are in very good condition and it is amazing to get so close to them.
Michelle Delport South Africa
A place to recommend - Marloth Park is the best holiday destination we have been to outside the Kruger Park. It is beautiful, tranquil and has everything you need. It was our first visit but definitely will not be the last. See you soon.
Very good - Very good

Marloth Park - Marloth Park has a way of growing on you, once you have been there you don't ever want to leave. Very peaceful and to see the animals in their natural environment is amazing.

Hazyview over festive season - Shopping is very hectic, other things ok, some huge potholes but a beautiful area.
Angie McCullough South Africa
Beautiful Land - The land is breathtakingly beautiful.
Ntombi Khumalo South Africa
Marloth - Every time we have visited we have been fortunate enough to see plenty of animals including Elephant and Hippo down in the Crocodile river, the facilities are excellent and the prices of accommodation very reasonable and of a high standard. I would recommend the park to anyone who wants a tranquil setting with plenty of wildlife and to anyone who wishes to travel into Kruger for day trips.
Nice - Small quiet town
Wow! - Marloth park was an experience to remember. Being able to see the animals at peace and in their surroundings.
Tammy Krause South Africa
great place - Your review...

Brilliant scenery - BRILLIANT
SHEFFEN NAIDOO South Africa
Hazyview - Shopping over the festive season a problem. Other amenities and location very good. Roads are very poor with serious potholes on some of the major scenic routes.
Hazyview - Developed from a small town to something more commercialised...
Very crowded at times but a nice little place!!
Carika Von Metzinger South Africa
Wonderful location near Kruger - We really enjoy Marloth Park and have stayed here twice in different homes. It is an affordable place to stay very near Kruger. It is excellent for families with small kids, as you can do game drives within Marloth to see the warthogs, wildebeest and zebra within the park without even going into Kruger. It is also lovely to drive along the river and Kruger fence in the early morning or evening to see the wildlife inside the park.

South Kruger is a gem - As a family we love South Kruger – there is lots to do for everyone and it’s very accessible.
Vriendelike dorpie - Baie oulike, dorp mense was baie vriendelik.
Marloth Magic - I fell in love with Marloth Park the very first time I visited on invitation from a friend. So much so, that I bought a stand and hope to build there one day. I stopped going into Kruger Park as I saw more animals along the border fences to satisfy the "Dr Doolittle" in me. I now take my 5 year old grandson there and nowhere else can you give a child a better education about wildlife in their own habitat. I can recommend Marloth Park as a holiday or long weekend break away any day!
Amanda Perks South Africa
Awesome time! - We had the most awesome time. Zebras were grazing on our doorstep. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves, especially when we witnessed a group of lions hunting.
Zaine Masote South Africa
Marloth Park - The park is great, there's wildlife roaming by every minute, we loved the giraffes, warthogs, zebras, monkeys, springboks, and kudus. I always enjoy staying in Marloth as it proves to be an excellent place to see wildlife in the natural habitat
Pertunia Methula South Africa
The best, going back next year! - Hazyview brings out the adventurous streak in me, I love it. Going back next year!
rebecca khambane South Africa
Animal Kingdom - I was stunned by the whole concept of nature and wildlife surrounding the Park. All the wildlife walking around was amazing . The mere fact that you are a few metres from the Kruger border was breathtaking! Lying in our splash-pool and looking at wildlife walking / roaming free around us was breathtaking. You have the best of both worlds - what an experience!
Hennie Snyman South Africa
PHALABORWA - PHALABORWA IS A VERY NICE PLACE TO BE WITH LOTS AND LOTS OF ACTIVITIES AND PLACES TO BE
Marloth Park - I was very impressed with the park had an abundant wildlife, from the tiniest bushbabies to the large giraffes, I believe there are resident leopards however we never saw them. The proximity to the Kruger makes it a stunning place to stay as you get the best of both worlds - you can sit in your "house" and watch game - which is awesome!
Marloth Park - The Park is lovely, lots of things to see and do, wild life is lovely
Hoedspruit - Excellent as a tourist destination. Two adequate supermarkets and plenty of additional shops to cater for your needs. Plenty of eating places and watering holes and the people are very friendly towards visitors.
Gereelde besoekers - Ons het 'n plekkie by Jackalberry Ridge, kom elke jaar dieselfde tyd, en my man kom vir besigheid op 'n gereelde basis ten minste 1 maal in 3 maande, Het al voorheen in Seekoei 2840 gebly. Ek hou van die wat die diere tussen die huisies beweeg en elke vakansie se ondervinding is verskillend. Een jaar sien jy so baie diere ander jare nie veel nie hang af van die reën seisoen. Kan met alle eerlikheid se ons gaan daar aftree.
Belinda Potgieter South Africa
Superb - Hazyview is a place to be if you want to relax and unwind.

Wildlife experience - Manyeleti Reserve is a nice place to discover wild animals.
yves frederic MAUPIN South Africa
Great place! - Kruger National Park is so exciting for wildlife watching.
The most quiet place for relaxation - Hoedspruit is a great place for getting away from our busy and noisy city life.
Abraham Ngobeni South Africa
A suburb of Kruger - The lodge we stayed in was wonderful, especially because we chose to be near the Crocodile River. The drive and walks near the river were fabulous, but it felt a bit crowded as there were many any lodges all over.
A Hidden Gem - Six months ago I didn't know that Marloth Park existed and I have lived in South Africa for many years. What an incredible place! The game is abundant and the views over the Crocodile River are fantastic. We saw herds of elephant, hippos and antelope. Also, the people that live there are so proud of their little piece of Africa and are very pleasant, helpful and friendly.
Tranquil and welcoming - I found the service at restaurants, our guesthouse and even in the shops extremely helpful and welcoming - nothing was an effort. I would recommend a stop at Casterbridge Centre, which was a great surprise. The coffee/gift shop at the Garden Pavillion (near Uplands College) is quaint and the owners are wonderful. White River has all the essentials, but with a big town like Nelspruit just 20 minutes away, you can spend a few days travelling in the area without any inconvenience.

fantastic! - Efficient, helpful, a unique place.
The beatiful place - Fantastic to live!
Review of Marloth Park Conservancy - Loved it. An awesome experience and we will be back again.
Go wild in Hoedspruit! - Hoedspruit is best known for its perfect location surrounded by Private Game Reserves and only 40 minutes drive to Kruger National Park. It is an all year round destination because the climate is sub-tropical with mild, dry winters.
Anita & Gerrie Molle South Africa
Eclectic little town - Hoedspruit is situated in the bushveld surrounded by the Drakensberg mountains close to the Blyde River Canyon.
An eclectic little town with lots of interesting restaurants, people and attractions.
Tanya Hastings South Africa
Beautiful - This is a gorgeous town to look at with a ton of adventure sports to do. Kuka restaurant is fabulous. We had the prawns which were great and good value for money too.
Jeannette Marais South Africa
Relaxing Little town - Hazyview is a beautiful little town full of character.
There is so much to do and see in and around town.
A great place for a get away with the whole family.

Our bushveld paradise - Balule Nature Reserve, or better the part OLIFANTS WEST NATURE RESERVE is a private reserve, open to the central area of Kruger National Park.
With no fences wildlife roams freely throughout this area, creating what is known as the Greater Kruger Park.
Balule/Olifants West is easily accessible. The main gate is just 17 kilometres from Hoedspruit.
And that provides easy access to scenic destinations like Panorama Route and Blyde River Canyon as well as day trips to Kruger Park.
But there is so much to keep you busy in the reserve. Morning and evening game drives with professional guides will show you not only BIG FIVE, but also LITTLE FIVE and UGLY THREE. You don't know what that’s about? Come and find out!
Relax at a sparkling splash pool, watch animals from your private patio or book a game walk to explore the reserve on foot - this piece of earth will give you the true African bush feeling.
No tourist cars are allowed for game drives – that makes sure it’s only the Balule guests in a few open game viewing cars and mother nature at it’s best.
Hoedspruit and Phalaborwa Airports (each with daily flights from Johannesburg) are less than 45min. drive.
And Hoedspruit Airport offers trice-a week flight from and to Cape Town.
Where Phalaborwa is. - Phalaborwa is well known not only that it's the town with two summers but also the only town that borders the Kruger National Park. This makes it unique and all would be travelers can stock up with fresh produce on their way to the park or to the well managed and controlled Giriyondo border post en route to Mozambique. BnB establishments are just a few minutes drive from the Kruger Park entrance Gate also.
James Clulow South Africa
For nature lovers - Marloth Park Conservancy is bordering the world renowned Kruger National Park. It is close (±15km) from Crocodile Bridge entrance gate and ± 25km from Malelane entrance gate into Kruger Park.
Herds of game like Kudu, Zebra, impala, bushbuck, Blouwildebees, Duiker, Giraffe, and Warthog etc. can be seen in Marloth Park. They are so used to humans that they will visit venues like Bush-babylodge on a regular basis. You will be impressed by the big variety of birds and indigenous trees to be seen. The business centre keeps most of necessities and the "Water Gat" is one of the numerous dining places.
Visitors can drive, hike or bike for several km alongside the Crocodile River - looking into the Kruger Park. Hippo, Lions, Crocodile, Buffalo and many other species can be seen during this outing.
A sun-downer while overlooking the Crocodile River and Southern Kruger Park - with Hippos grumping and birds preparing for the night - round off a perfect day.
Listen to the sounds of night like lion roaring, Hippo grumping and Hyena scavenging for food, while staring into your campfire while the bush-veld braai gets ready to be served.
If you are not a nature lover - please do not visit Marloth Park.
If you are, you will surely return after visiting the first time!

A Haven of Holiday Treats - Hazyview has a touristy vibe and the heat one may expect throughout summer and winter serves as a happy reminder that this is the time to think happy thoughts - you're on holiday!
Hazyview is a hub of intermingling cultures, from the locals and not-so-local visitors with thoughts on vacation. The town atmosphere is energetic and busy, bolstered by the hospitality from many local restaurants and accommodation establishments.
This is the gateway to the Kruger Park and the beginning of a memorable adventure, regardless of whether you camp or cart a trailer to self-cater inside or outside of the Park's boundaries or if you book into a swanky safari lodge.
Accommodation both in and around Hazyview offers something for every budget from budget stays to luxurious retreats. This location is ideal for visits into the Kruger National Park as well as a starting point to explore the Panoramic route. Travel a little out of town for ziplining, canopy tours, elephant encounters at a sanctuary or a feast of adventure activities from white water rafting and geckoing to quad bikes and horse riding. If all this feels exhausting, there are several spas and opportunities for pampering
A variety of appetites may be satisfied by a visit to Perry's Bridge, such as Kuka and Toppelinos and many places along the way, such as Pioneers Grill. Curios are more tasteful and actually of use, alongside African art, the Artefunto is a treat to while away a few moments, the Belgian Baker and the Chocolatier will always provide temptation and the African Silks offers some lovely weaving.
En route to Sabie and the Panorama, the scenery emerges as a forested vista, with bananas and macademias in produce, lining the way.
Though in every respect the actual town of Hazyview is a means to replenishment (Need an extra bag of charcoal? Get it here! Just need a rest stop? Then do it!), it leaves a mark in a bustling, vibrant manner that reminds you that this is Africa. (You may still be brushing some dust or sand off your shoes a few weeks after visiting,but it's all good.)
We simply love this town. Highly Recommended!
