About Croc River View

Eden Game Lodge has its name for a reason. You truly feel like you are in the Garden of Eden when you are there. It is an upmarket luxury game lodge finished in all natural materials to make you feel like you are at home in the bush.

Eden Game Lodge is a unique concept in game lodges, where the main living area is entirely on the first and second floor, with most bedrooms located downstairs. This elevated position offers 180 degree views and it means that there is always a nice breeze to cool you down without the need for the air-conditioning, although the this is available for those days when your need it.

We offer two large double bedrooms with queen-size beds and en-suite bathrooms, and there is a third bedroom with four single beds. The downstairs area has a large lounge with leather couches and a TV for keeping the kids entertained in the evenings. Please bring your own play station or DVD player for the downstairs TV. There is also a covered patio, garage, laundry and carport complimented by a boma for evening campfires and bush braais. There is a main bedroom on the first floor which offers an open-plan double bath and basin, a private double shower and an en-suite toilet and bidet room. The bath is alongside its own large folding door which allows you to enjoy your bath with the feeling of being in the bush, or you can use the separate outside shower.

In the upstairs living area, there is a modern open-plan kitchen, a dining room and a large leather lounge. This area flows onto the covered patio and barbecue area for al fresco dining. This is the only lodge that has a lounge with a shaded en-suite splash pool. Enjoy the large sun deck for catching the rays in the comfy deck chairs. All modern appliances and kitchen fittings are provided for you to enjoy your self-catering holiday in the style you are accustomed to. There is a choice of wood or charcoal barbecues available on the upstairs patio for dining and relaxation.

The lodge is completed with the third level of the game viewing deck which allows seating for up to eight people while sipping drinks and viewing the hippos in the Crocodile River and the rhinos in the Kruger National Park on the opposite bank. The lodge offers a truly fantastic opportunity to just relax, enjoy the company of friends and revel in the unspoiled bush and animal life. The lodge comes with full armed response standby security DStv. We supply all linen, towels, basic coffee and tea.

Safari: We offer some of the best game viewing in Marloth Park right from the balconies of the lodge. Our own qualified staff can take guests out for guided bush walks and game drives are also available for a small extra fee.

      We loved the view, air conditioners in the rooms and the swimming pool. The house is very comfortable and spacious. Basic cleaning was done before we arrived, but we could see that it hasn't had a deep clean in a while (toilets were dirty, old toothbrush underneath the bed, hair in the showers), but all in all we enjoyed our stay.

      Nice place but not well maintained. We got there on a Saturday afternoon, the place was so dusty and there were spider webs everywhere. Clearly the last time it was cleaned was when the other people left. Our stay started with us cleaning the house. The bedroom door of the room closest to the garage can only be unlocked from outside the room. The place could use a bit of an update, just changing the curtains would make such a big difference.The kids really enjoyed the pool and seeing the animals come up so close to the house. Overall it was a great stay just really disappointed about having...

      We had an amazing time, definitely a place to just go and relax and enjoy nature around you. Will definitely be back next year again.

      Pros: Location in Park ideally close to river. Lodge spacious, comfortable and neat. Splash pool & upper viewing deck very convenient. Will visit again.Cons: Stairs to first landing definitely need hand railings. Maintenance issues need attention.Suggestion: Feeding baskets for Lucerne need to be installed as neighbouring lodges have them and attract wildlife away from Eden Game Lodge.

      Kick back in an open safari vehicle on a tour of Kruger National Park. Qualified FGSA field guides will introduce you to the Big 5 and seek for the Magnificent 7. Definitely a far more enjoyable Kruger experience than self-driving in a small sedan.
