About Marloth Bush Retreat

Marloth Bush Retreat is a tranquil and comfortable, self-catering thatched hideaway situated on the southern border of the Kruger National Park. A wide variety of game and about 300 bird species are found around the retreat in untamed bushveld vegetation. The close-up interaction with Africa’s animals is truly thrilling.

The guest house accommodates eight people comfortably in four double bedrooms which all offer en-suite bathrooms. Linen and towels are supplied, but please bring your own swimming towels. Two cosy little lounges and wildlife magazines enhance your retreat into the bush. Ceiling fans are installed throughout and the kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, microwave oven, fridge-freezer and all other necessities. There is a built-in barbecue on the patio and should you prefer not to cook, there are several restaurants and pubs close by. A splash pool adjoining the entertainment area is a wonderful way of cooling off on a hot summer’s afternoon.

African night sounds of the lions roaring, hippos grunting and hyenas calling are part of the bush experience. Elephant and buffalo can be seen feeding in the Crocodile River. This is a birdwatcher’s paradise and with species such as the eastern nicator, yellow-billed, red-billed, grey and crowned hornbills found here. The iconic sound of an African fish eagle’s call calms even the most stressed soul.

Safari: Deep in the African bushveld, wild animals roam freely. Book a day on safari in the Kruger National Park on an open game viewing vehicle with our trained guides.

      What an awesome experience. The feeling of being in the bush - so close to the trees you can't help but feel you are in the middle of it.The animals that came and had a look see at the humans! We were the zoo! The Monitor Lizard and different things to see, the Bush Babies, each day we looked for something different and found it The only drawback was the heat but that is nature. I recommend it - miss it already. Thank you Genie - as my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter so aptly put it - magical.

      Very nice stay, just wish it could have been longer! Loved the resident bushbabies. Fabulous sightings down at the riverfront - lioness guarding her kudu kill and leopard in a tree. Very successful full day in KNP. All in all a fabulous bush getaway. Thank you.

      We had a great time at Marloth Bush Retreat....our unit had everything we needed and being able to chill in the pool, with some warthogs scuffling around right there, was awesome as it was very very hot!

      We were three people and our welcome was absolutely amazing. One seldom meets such friendliness and hospitality. The accommodation is comfortable and quiet, the whole ambience superb. Wonderful value for money, I will definitely be back with family & friends. Thank you so much.
