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.

Marulani is 'n netjiese en gasvrye lodge waar ons lekker kon ontspan. Dit is ideaal om weg te breek van die besige lewe en bied genoeg privaatheid. Die eenhede is goed toegerus, die dekor oorspronklik en die mense vriendelik. Ons sal beslis weer daar gaan uitspan.

Ons het heerlik gekuier. Die huisie is goed ingerig en kyk uit op die bos. Ons kon nagdiere goed te hoor. Eienaars is baie vriendelik en behulpsaam. Ons sal beslis weer gaan!

We had an awesome weekend. I loved the chalet and Riaan & Debbie were excellent hosts. The game drive was very relaxing and informative. The fact that we saw the lions and beautiful birds made it very special. We also enjoyed the braai at the lapa very much. It felt like having a braai with old friends. I will definitely encourage people to stay at Marulani and we will be going again.

Superb. 5 out of 5

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
