Had a lovely stay, the house is wonderful.
We spent 4 nights at Marula Bush Lodge. It was great, not only for the fantastic accommodation in the peaceful wildlife estate, but also for the location with easy access to the Kruger Park and other necessary places.
Lovely big house in a magnificent setting.
Beautiful, spacious well-equipped home. We enjoyed our stay. Outdoor shower was great. Very quiet, so if you need excitement all the time you might get a bit bored.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Marula lodge. It is neat and clean and close to all the shops and restaurants. There are lots of activities in the area.
