This rustic self-catering holiday home has all the comforts you need to relax and enjoy Africa at its best.
The Crocodile River is close to the house, about 100m to view any of the Big 5 drinking or bathing in the River.
An ideal self-catering family unit, sleeps 2 to 10 guests, house and a cottage, only ONE group of guests booked at a time. If you book the house only, the cottage remains empty for the duration of your stay.
No fencing is allowed around the houses in Marloth Park, so the animals roam freely. Animals such as Giraffe, Zebra, Kudu, Wildebeest, Impala, Warthogs and many more.
Abundant bird life is seen, especially in winter months.
Wake up to the cry of the fish eagle flying overhead or the chatter of monkeys.
Experiencing a true feeling of Africa.
Relax and view the animals from within the air-conditioned House or Cottage, or laze outside by the lovely paved entertainment areas. Both entertainment areas are enclosed for your safety. The entertainment areas are enclosed to cater for those who are afraid of the animals or families with children. Cool down under the outside showers or splash pools, great for hot summer days or shower under the stars and moonlight or by candle light (for those romantics).
While sitting around the fire (boma) in the evenings, Lion, Hyena and Hippo are often heard. There are bush babies that live in the tree top overhead and at dusk they come out to play.
Watch the fireflies flicker past, certain times of the year.
There is a special ambiance on full moon nights and the starry nights are spectacular.
Take a 10km drive along the fence in Marloth Park, which borders the Crocodile River/Kruger National Park, it is not uncommon to see a few of the Big 6 (Lion, Elephant, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino or Hippo) There are many very large Crocodiles in the river and can be seen basking in the sun. If you are lucky you may see a lion kill.
Another bonus is the warm low veld winters, when more animals are seen.
Welcome, GETAWAY BUSH awaits you.

We had such a wonderful stay!
We booked both the house and cottage we where 4 adults and 6 children, the house and cottage was both beautifully furnished with a touch of class! There was more than enough space!
The beds was extremely comfortable and heavenly to sleep on.
The house offered any thing we could need and more!
The small children loved the play area and the older ones appreciated the wifi.
Wonderful memories was made, it really felt like home away from home, and we said good bye with a heavy heart nobody wanted to leave.
Thank you for the great hospitality and keeping us up to date with all the activity in and around the park.
Our weekend ended on a high note as when we left we saw not 1 but 2 rhino's which made everybody's day!
I highly recommend Getaway Bush to any and every one wanting to visit Marloth Park.

If you are looking for a comfortable, homely no expenses spared holiday home then you need not look any further. But be aware - this house is jinxed. Once you are there you will not want to leave again. Luckily the owner, Nita, with her friendly and helpful attitude, could accommodate us for longer than what we originally booked. Unfortunately our New Zealand guests had to fly home two days later or we might just have stayed until Nita got the SWAT team to remove us by force. We really enjoyed our stay and with the Kruger Park just around the corner, we had a perfect holiday break. I will definitely recommend Getaway Bush to any family who are looking for accommodation in the Kruger/Marloth Park area.

This was our second trip to Getaway Bush and I'm already planning the next one! The house was revamped just before our visit and looks beautiful. Nita (the owner) went to a lot of trouble to make sure we enjoyed every minute of our stay. Nkosnut kept the area around the house spotless and supplied us with firewood every night...Thanks! Will definitely recommend to anyone looking for a quiet break away from the rat race.

I really wanted to take a break from the busy everyday life but at the same time relax amongst the animals and enjoy the fresh air and peace.
Well I got much more than this at Getaway Bush. this was the perfect holiday, it was peacefull, relaxing and we all felt so at home. not once did it feel like we were in someone else's place. the best part of all was the fact that we had animals visit us right at our door step everyday. our visitors consisted of Zebra, warthog, monkeys, bushbabies, buck and even baffalo. this was definatly not my last visit to Getaway Bush. Nita the owner is so helpful at all times and sent us messagea to find out if we arrived and are happy with everything, she even let us know to be on the look out as there was a Lion on the loose in Marloth park. thank you again for everything. this is a relaxing home away from home. we all loved it.

Nice and quiet, with game walking around the area.
We saw Impala, Kudu, Warthog, Zebra, Giraffe and Wildebeest.
A short drive of 3 minutes takes you to the Olifants river where you can watch all animals going down to the river to drink.
Its also only 17km from Olifants Gate at Komatipoort to go into the Kruger Park.
