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 South Africa
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.
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.
Bets De Vrieze 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.
Wow! - Marloth park was an experience to remember. Being able to see the animals at peace and in their surroundings.
Tammy Krause 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.

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
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
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
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
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.
The beatiful place - Fantastic to live!
Review of Marloth Park Conservancy - Loved it. An awesome experience and we will be back again.
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!
Carla Pretorius South Africa
Lovely conservancy - Enjoyed it very much. Going back for sure
Very nice holiday destination - We enjoyed our time there. We had wonderful accommodation and we saw giraffe, buffalo, wildebeest and elephants. We also saw a hippopotamus and crocodiles along with kudu and impala and warthogs. We didn't even have to drive around for hours like in the Game Reserves.
Noelene Vorster South Africa
Marloth Park as a wildlife conservancy - Marloth Park should stay as it is now.
More building means less wildlife.
The shops need an uplifting; there is poor supply.
Pure Bliss. - As always when we go to Marloth Park, returning home is quite difficult. Really love the place.
Great safari experience - Great safari experience
Sheevaun Cairns South Africa
Love it - I wasn't my first time at Marloth Park, all I can say is that it always amazes me the animal, surroundings and overall experience. The directions on how to find the houses is the only improvement I would suggest.

Love it - I wasn´t my first time at Marloth Park, all I can say is that it allways amazes me the animal, surroundings and overall experience.
The directions on how to find the houses is the only improvmment I would sugest.
Carlos Patricio Mozambique
Choose the right accommodation - There are a lot of people renting out their houses in Marloth Park. Some are very good, and some are very bad. Be careful and investigate before you do the booking and the cheaper options isn't always the best.
Elmarie & Linda Pretorius South Africa
Nature's Getaway - Very safe and amazing place to view animals. Big plus for tar roads in the park, making it easy for all types of vehicles to get to see nature.
Andrew Bremner South Africa
Great Place - Would recommend Marloth Park to anyone
Francois Aucamp South Africa
Peaceful and rejuvenating - A great place to visit and well recommended!
Marloth Park - Marloth Park is a unique conservancy and really a special place for those fortunate enough to be able to live there. The secluded houses with animals roaming freely through the grassland was really special. The animals sitings seen at the Crocodile river was amazing. A lovely walk along the river. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Francy Cullen South Africa
Out of the world - Don't miss out on this exclusive piece on earth for nature lovers.
Nice animals - Saw giraffe and warthog in the two hours we were there, pity the accommodation spoiled everything for us.
Michelle Wright South Africa
Marloth Park - Me and my family properly go to marloth park at least twice a year and it we always come back with fantastic memories as far as we are concerned the best place to holiday in SA we just love it only one thing be careful who you book through safari.now is in our experience the safest place to book have had bad experiences with other sites in the past.
Winter getaway - Very good location to the Kruger Park, excellent close up game viewing in Marloth Park.
John Richmond South Africa
Couples - The Marloth Park is amazing, we loved everything about the place.
Ruhig, grosszügig angelegt und sicher - Idealer Platz für Ausfahrten in den nahen Krügerpark. Die nötigsten Lebensmittel werden in kleinen Shops angeboten. Benzin, Diesel und Geldtankstelle ist auch da.
Hanspeter Giger Switzerland
beware of wildlifeclub!!! - We’ve been to Marloth Park several times cause its a beautiful place to stay! But the last time we booked with wildlifeclub.co.za for 3 days and the house we got was horrible, dark and dirty. We left the next morning on13.03.2013. We paid by credit card and until now, we wait to get the money back or at least an answer to our emails. Our first bad experience in 10 years of travelling in South Africa!

Koos Geyser - Vir ons die paradys! Diere loop tussen die huise rond! Die omgewing is baie rustig, en die winkels het al die basiese dinge wat jy nodig het. Lionspruit binne die park was egter 'n groot teleurstelling! Die lekkerste is dat Malelane- en Krokkodil brug van KNP baie naby is. Die krokkodilrivier lewer ook altyd iet opwindends op want did binne die Kruger wildtuin.
Marloth Park - We stayed here in Jan 2012. It was an experience l will keep with me all my life. We had zebra in the garden, we drove through Marloth and parked near the Crocodile River – the whole place is magical. We travelled to Kruger and saw and heard nature at its most beautiful. If you are ever able to go, do it, you will not be disappointed.
Unwind in the bushveld - My husband and I visited Marloth Park on our first week of honeymoon, and it was perfect. Wildlife roamed freely and there was the sound of lions and jackals late at night. The people are friendly and the shops cater for all your specific needs. Also, some of the lodges have restaurants that offer great food and company that you will not find in your everyday restaurant. The Park offers everything for couples and family breakaways. We loved the surrounding area and will be sure to visit again.
Elize van Niekerk (Hurn) South Africa
A home in the bush - Marloth Park is just incredible; the sounds of the bush follow you constantly. The whole Conservancy is friendly and helpful just what you need to relax and enjoy a peaceful stay.
Linda Koekemoer South Africa
Lovely and close to nature! - Marloth Park is surprisingly big and really beautiful. Roaming animals are great and very friendly. The bush shop is well equipped and you really don't need to take any food there, as everything is available. The bottle store was very expensive, so take your own alcohol. It is very close to Crocodile Bridge Gate and makes daytrips to KNP very easy. Nice restaurant and public pool in the park as well. Will definitely go back there again.
Herman Horak South Africa
Lizette Blight 21-29 March 2013 - We loved every moment of our stay, as we have been there before. Boskombuis and Icecream Queen is a must! They saw a lot of our family every day. Wonderful wildlife and lookout points, and we enjoyed the trails next to the river as it gave you an off road feel.
We would love to take my husbands Swedish co-workers there as it gives us a total feel of living in the bush. Big thumbs up for Marloth Park
