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.

Amazing hosts,the owners were so accommodating and friendly and made you feel like you were part of the family. I would highly recommend Bush Retreat for any break away. It's a home away from home, we enjoyed every moment there and wished we had stayed longer. We plan to do a return trip soon.

Entrance to accommodation well marked, easy to find and route easily accessible with any vehicle. Nice double undercover parking.Close to shopping area where one can buy anything you need including meat at a super nice butchery.Owners staying on same stand very accommodating and friendly and a plus point. Thanks Morne for your lekker kuiertjie, we enjoyed your company and knowledge of nature and Marloth Park. (Sorry I kept you awake till midnight :-) )The retreat is well equipped with everything you need. Kitchen even has an' old school stove' with oven and 4 plates and all working. All cutle...
