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.
