We have just spent the most amazing weekend at Marulani for a 60th birthday - Debbie and Riaan and Jacques were fantastic hosts - Maroela cottage where we stayed was comfortable and had everything you could wish for. The game drive with Jacques was a fantastic experience. We will certainly be back Hopefully with the rest of our crew.

Debbie was very welcoming and communicated with us frequently. When we had an issue it was resolved within minutes. The hut was comfortable and we had everything we needed, including a heater and extra blankets. The lodge is very pretty - lovely little decorative touches give a personal feel that we appreciated. We would love to visit again and bring the family with us next time.

Two friends and I stayed at Marulani for a two night weekend. We were met initially by Debbie who made us feel totally at home and welcome - and later by Riaan who is extremely interesting and we all agreed we would have loved to have spent an evening with both of them around a braai with a cold frosty listening to their stories. They showed us some phenomenal photos of elephant and lion virtually on their front stoep! The accommodation was spotlessly clean and we could not fault anything. We loved the artistic decor of not only the chalet but the gardens as well. We would unreservedly recommend Marulani to anyone wanting a break from the rat race!

Fabulous. 4 out of 5

We had a fabulous weekend at Marulani Bush Lodge and will definitely be back. The cottage was brand new and clean. Has everything you need. Riaan and Debbie are simply wonderful hosts. Thanks for the sharing of your knowledge and stories. We will see you again. The lodge is only 55km from OR Tombo.

Riaan en Debbie het ons absoluut op die hande gedra. Die huis is goed ingerig en het alles gehad wat ons benodig het. Riaan het ons ook op 'n game drive geneem en die kinders was mal daaroor. Ek beveel Marulani beslis aan en sal weer kom kuier.

Ons het Marulani vreeslik geniet. Die bosbraai en buitestort was ons hoogtepunte. Dis baie goeie waarde vir geld en ons sal dit aanbeveel vir enige een.

To be fair we didn't see the entire game reserve as we were restricted.
We saw a fair amount of game.

Okay. 3 out of 5
