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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
- 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
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.
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.
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
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.

- 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.
Great family bush getaway - Marloth Park is a great place to get away and enjoy peace in the bush, but not be confined to your car - our kids lived riding their mountain bikes everywhere, and were so excited to interact with the zebra, warthogs, and nag-aapies, and spotting the giraffe, kudu and wildebeest. We sat outside every evening and heard lion and hyena, and we took our car around the park at night to look through the fence into the Kruger. Would advise a high clearance vehicle, and preferably a 4x4 to get the best out of the park - some roads are fine, but those closest to the river are really bad - we have a Pajero and we had no trouble at all, but I would hate to try it in a normal car! Shops are well equipped, though a bit expensive (to be expected).
Marloth is a great and affordable bush getaway! - I'm not sure why more people don't know about Marloth Park but it's such a wonderful and affordable bush getaway for families!
Tim Van Stormbroek
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.
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.
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.
Bets De Vrieze
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.
Wow! - Marloth park was an experience to remember. Being able to see the animals at peace and in their surroundings.
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.
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!
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.
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
