big 5 n more garden - We loved the place . enjoyed skukuza the swimming pool. The drving around the whole place it was zibabo.
Friendly Town - Perfectly situated to the Kruger Park and surrounding accommodations. Beautiful and green everywhere. All needed shops and garages are available. Did not have time to explore Malelane to the full but surely cater for all.
Hazyview the best - Hazyview is an awesome area. South Africa is blessed that we can boost an area like Hazyview.
A little piece of heaven - After 4 visits to Marloth, I am now buying a property there - a little piece of heaven in the bush. I just hope that the development going on at the moment will not over commercialise the place too much.

Restaurants - Highly recommend Tambarina Restaurat in Komatipoort.
Marloth Summary - This is the 2nd time I have been to Marloth and it definitely will not be the last - love the area and with the game being so tame is a bonus.
I hope the up coming game relocation exercise is done really professionally and that the game left in the conservancy will be adequate.
Fantastic place - well worth the visit.
Restaurant - We had prawns at Tambarina (77 Rissik Street); what a fantastic meal. The town is very interesting and we got lovely place to stay overnight.
Wonderful place! - Love it, so much to do in and around Hazyview.
Good - Hazy is a small town which has much to offer for fun and relaxation. The Mall, however, was disappointing - needs revamping and a clean up.
Wild Life Extravangaza - Simply put, it is one of the most beautiful towns we have visited in SA - and we have travelled our country extensively over the last 30 years.
J.Beytell - Lovely place. It seems that people ( Contractors) working in the park do not stick to the speed of 50. The lions park put more lions in the park.
Gateway to Kruger - The town of Hoedspruit has everything you need to prepare for a holiday in Kruger. The town is clean and as it is so close to the Orpen gate, I recommend you stay over before entry and buy everything you need fresh from the shops in town! No WW but a very nice P'nP.
Overnight stay - Did not visit the town as we only slept over as there was no accommodation available at KNP.
Roads deteriorated - Very disappointed in state of deterioration of many roads in Marloth. Seems 4x4 would be the only way to go soon.
Best place to rest. Love it, love it! - What an awesome place to spend weekend or holiday on your own, with friends or family. You can feel safe and enjoy everything about Marloth.
Jewel in the bush - Had the time of our lives.
GREAT!!!! - We had an absolutely lovely time in the Kruger. We went in at Malelane Gate and went out at Skukuza. We went to Hoedspruit and Graskop. It was an amazing week.
Marloth Park - Very nice and family friendly. I would recommend it to anyone and it is close the gates to the Kruger Park.
One with Nature - We entered Marloth Park and the first animal we saw was a giraffe. The wildlife is incredible and so close up. It was beautiful and clean. What an experience; we loved it.
NATURE AT IT'S BEST - Loved the area with the animals roaming freely around, the tranquility of the bush, the birds at dawn and the roar of the lions or trumpeting of the elephants in the distance in the evenings. Plenty to see down at the river and many benches to rest or just simply to soak up the surrounds and what's happening along the Crocodile River, with only a fence bordering the KNP and the river. Clean, friendly and safe environment. A variety of small shops nearby to supply anything you might have forgotten or simply to top up on items. Not far from Crocodile Bridge entrance to the KNP - a comfortable 25 - 30 minute drive away.
- Lovely little town. Could live there tomorrow! Has everything I desire.

- Very nice park with a lot of possibilities. You can rent a house for every price.
Perfect to get close to nature - We LOVE Marloth park and will recommend it for young and old, if you want to be part of nature.
Wonderful place to stay - We love staying in Marloth Park, and have been here five times now, it's a long trip from the UK but it puts everything you want for a great safari holiday right on your doorstep, and the numbers of animals that actually turn up in the gardens will maze you. It's just 15 minutes by car into crocodile bridge gate of Kruger Park, and the park itself has every facility you need for a great holiday.
Best familly holiday ever - Beautiful wildlife scenery and would go back there anytime....the kids loved all the animals and were amused by the giraffes and the zebras who welcomed us on the first evening. Thank you for the awesome experience, we would recomend this holiday to anyone.

A piece of Africa - Wonderful place to experience the wild and listen to the sounds of lion at night.
Maria Van Den Bosch
Hazyview - Nice central town, to visit several places.
Nature in full - Great park to live with nature. We found only the deposit of garbage inappropriate for that location.

Little piece of paradise - We visit Marloth Park regularly and it never ceases to deliver on fun, relaxation and a true African experience. The houses all have privacy, the wildlife is amazing and the community is friendly. It is absolutely beautiful and really a little piece of African paradise.
Not Child Friendly - The Kruger National Park is NOT child friendly at all. There is nowhere in the park where they can play and have fun. Not even a swing or a slide or a jungle gym. They are not allowed on game drives, they may not ride bicycles in the rest camps, they may not play around and laugh as it annoys the old age guests. My children hated every moment of our visit in the park. They are well behaved and obedient children in general, but they are busy boys and it was extremely difficult to keep them occupied without getting into trouble. They can only sit still and draw pictures for so long and then they have to get active and busy. After a game drive sitting in the car they need to get rid of their energy. This was frowned upon by most guests and the authorities at the park.
Other than that, I was disappointed with the maintenance and the standard of the facilities in the park. Where we were camping in Skukuza the ablutions were dirty, unkempt and many things are out of order. Taps are either not opening or not closing, toilet doors cannot lock, ice and water machines are not working, there are no plugs in the basins to wash dishes, the train restaurant has been closed after only four weeks and the place is dangerous with glass and rubble lying all over the floor of the platform. The shops at the rest stops are closed because the generators are not working, the restaurant in Skukuza is closed and apparently being renovated. The Skukuza day visitors area is closed because the swimming pool is 'broken'.
The Park is beautiful and it is lovely to be in nature but I am disappointed with the state of the facilities and the total disregard for children. How are we supposed to raise children with a love of nature if they are not welcome in the park?
Absolute bliss - It is next to the Kruger Park, and if you do not feel like going to the Kruger, you take your camera, and walk along the fence, and see all the animals in the Kruger that come to the river for a drink. We even saw a lion there.

Heaven on Earth - I love Marloth Park, the animals, the bush, the accommodation; there is nothing not to love.
- 'n Pragtige omgewing in die bosveld waar 'n stil en rustige atmosfeer heers en mens heerlik kan ontspan.

Marloth park - Beautiful place to rest and to enjoy the best that nature has to offer.
Marloth Park - It was stunning and if my bank balance looked any better I would have tried to acquire a plot there. The animals are friendly, the roads are well maintained, the security is exemplary. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
Marloth Park Conservancy - We liked the park a lot, and the facilities in the park are nice. Liked the animals in the garden. Main road is good. Make sure you take the entrance on the East side of the park as the West side is a rough dirt road. The security gate ensures no one is roaming around during the day or at night.
Day in Malelane - Malelane was very beautiful with mountains although that weather was little cloudy and it was almost raining.
We saw some animals, elephants, giraffes, a leopard, kudus and impalas, rhinos, and some special birds. Time there was amazing. Id like to go back for a longer time because one day was absolutely too short (10h driving).
Winter in Martloth park is a good idea! - We liked the park a lot, and the facilities in the park are need.
Liked the animals on the patio!
Roads are good
Very nice place - Many things to do and to view
National Park Entrance of North Kruger Park
Visiting Pafuri Rivercamp - What an awesome place with friendly hosts - everything was perfect and clean - not even footprints after the ground at the tent had been swept.
Nature - We love the nature and rustic environment where animals come and feed practically out of your hand. With previous visits we have had great and adequate accommodation. However this past visit the accommodation was not good. Would suggest that somehow accommodation be rated and evaluated so that you get what you pay for. Will definitely come and visit again because we love the bush and nature surroundings.
Hugo du Toit
- It is a beautiful, peaceful place. I would really appreciate it if they can fix the gravel road. Otherwise, I would not mind visiting again!
I love the area. A perfect place to go to when you are tired of Johannesburg.
MARLOTH - Marloth Park is lovely, but the litter lying around is disgusting. Surely when the rubbish is collected from each house the collectors could pick up along their way? This is not only harmful to the animals but it also looks very unappealing.
Besides the rubbish it is really lovely.
Marloth Park - The park is situated next to the Kruger National Park with only the crocodile river between them, Walks can be taken and animals from the Kruger can also be seen. Inside the park there are various animals as well. For convenience there's two shops to buy anything you forgot.
Our June visit to a great game park - Disappointed to see so many cigarette butts at game viewing points and plastic bottles along the roads - surely staff should pick these up, and perhaps more notice advising smokers that butts should not be dropped on the ground. A fence around the rubbish pit made out of branches (like in other areas) would be a good idea.
Loved the park --and will return!
I like it - I like the idea that the animals have right of way, although I am not a believer of bringing humans into animal enclosures for many reasons. But I think Marloth park is doing it right. The only two things I would like to mention are this: I went for a walk and saw lots of rubbish laying around, that can be harmful to the animals. Now I know most of the culprits are the monkeys, but they were there before us so maybe better care can be taken to ensure they don't open dustbins. Seems on weekends the rubbish bins outside are not emptied and the overfilling of the bins is causing rubbish to end up in the field. Maybe a good idea to empty them on weekends as well. Just a suggestion. Then at the gate there is a rubbish collection point and most of the rubbish was laying around the collection point and it was blown into the field. But for the rest it was a great experience, thank you. Don't know if there is any development for a proper route to go for a nice long walk .

Marloth Park Conservancy - A great bush break without having to drive into the Kruger National Park.
Like the old days. - Its really a little hide away town on its own, very friendly people with a quite atmosphere
MARLOTH PARK - MARLOTH WAS GREAT, WILL RETURN
Great location - Marloth Park is an excellent area from which to stay in when visiting the Kruger National Park. It's location is fantastic.
