What a lovely stay. Enjoyed the restaurants around and what lovely food. The area is so peaceful and sultry. Coming back again I must say.
The exclusive Marloth Park village affords the visitor a rare opportunity to see Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo) up close. Marloth Park inspires a sense of peaceful co-existence between man and the animals seen languishing in and around the Crocodile River – dividing Marloth Park from the Kruger National Park – and freely roaming the village streets.
Marloth Park is located just over 400km from both Johannesburg and Pretoria via the N4 northern highway. The landscape is one of remote bushveld, an ideal place to experience safaris and quiet, starlit evenings. The village occupies roughly 1500ha and adjoins the Marloth Park-owned 1500ha Lionspruit Game Reserve.
Hides have been setup at elevated points for game viewing over the Crocodile River and fences are absent, allowing animals to wander undisturbed in the village.
Bring your checklist to tick off the entire alphabet of animals, from the shy armadillo to the huge herds of zebra.
Things to do
Game viewing options are plentiful, drive through the private Lionspruit Reserve for viewing of all major species bar the elephant or drive the short distance into South Africa’s largest game reserve, the Kruger National Park.
Lounge around the swimming pool at the Bundu Restaurant or enjoy a game of tennis at the same venue.
Marloth Park is centrally located in this most beautiful part of the world where activities are no more than a day’s drive in all directions:-
North into the Kruger National Park for a night drive,
West to Mpumalanga’s national heritage sites such as Bourke’s Luck potholes, old gold rush towns and stunning waterfalls,
South to the kingdom of Swaziland to visit their cultural villages and the Ngwenya glass factory, and
East to the country of Mozambique for diving or snorkelling off the pristine white beaches and azure sea.

For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy. Converted from a private house it’s a much gentler environment and for those with furry friends, there are also pet friendly options. They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
