About Henk van Rooyen Park

Henk van Rooyen is a lovely resort situated in the wildlife sanctuary, Marloth Park.

The resort offers guests the choice of staying in one of the comfortable chalets or rondavels, or make use of the caravan stands situated on the river bank. The chalets and rondawels are furnished with double or single beds and can sleep four to six people. Each of the 10 caravan stands is roofed and each has a private braai area. The upgraded ablution facilities and the scullery room are shared between the stands, chalets and rondavels and consist of showers only. The resort also has a lovely pool.

Situated close to Komatipoort, Marloth forms part of the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park. Residents of Marloth are not allowed to fence their properties, creating unique experiences like waking up to find a bushbuck or a hippo in front of your caravan or chalet. Elephants are also nearby as they love to drink from and play in the Crocodile River and lions have been seen from time to time.

With excellent facilities provided, Henk van Rooyen aims to make guests' stay as exciting or relaxing as possible, whichever is preferred.

We loved the whole vibe of the lapa walking to overlooking the river to watch the wildlife as we sipped on our sundowners .... brilliant and the chalet was so perfectly perfect. The next morning we headed out for Kruger early and so the plan was to wash our dishes when we returned. Whilst we were away the "Dishes cleaning fairies"washed our dishes. What a wonderful and unexpected surprise THANK YOU ..... Next time all we need for a perfect stay....is SNORING Mufflers under the pillow so I cant hear hubby snoring after his relaxing day

The price considering location was amazing and would love to go back except that the bathroom is really Not up to standard. The thatch roof gives off a very unpleasant smell when doors are closed. The amount of trees along the river blocks off any view one could have of the river which defeats the purpose of the location on the river bank. The bed in the lounge nex to the door was terrible and woke up stiff cos u basically sleep on planks.The bunk beds shud rather be 2 single beds alongside each other.

The chalets overlook the Crocodile River and are clean and functional. The pool was also very clean and the restaurant serves great cocktails. I would definitely recommend the park to other guests. Chalets are more suitable for families than for groups of friends, would recommend a chalet to yourself if you are a couple. Personally, would also like to have a better waste management system- ie. A bin for recylable items and maybe one for compost (this is not a criticism, rather a recommendation).

The chalets are very neat and comfortable. We stayed at no 1 and unfortunately the air-conditioning were not working. In tje extremely hot weather it is very unpleasant.

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.
