"Relax ... you're in the bush". Now imagine watching elephants play in the Mpumalanga, Crocodile River, while enjoying breakfast under the warm African sun. Such an exceptional scenario can be found in Mpumalanga, Marloth Park, which lies on the banks of the Kruger Park, Crocodile River. Also home to hippo and crocodiles, the Crocodile River forms the southern boundary between Marloth Park and the Kruger National Park, giving Marloth Park guests the rare opportunity of living among kudu, zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, nyala, impala and warthog, which roam freely between the Marloth Park accommodation units, while still being in close proximity to the Kruger Park Big Five.

Review - Accommodation for Kruger Park Self Catering Cottage/ House/ Bungalow in Marloth Park, Kruger Park Area, Mpumalanga
We recently enjoyed a great family holiday at the Marloth Kruger Lodges - self catering cottages in the Kruger Park Area of Mpumalanga. We stayed in a unit called the Bushpig Lodge, which slept 7 comfortably. The kids really enjoyed the loft room and splash pool, while the adults loved the thatched boma with braai and fire pit, around which we spent most evenings enjoying the sounds of the surrounding Kruger Park wildlife.
The Kruger National Park Big 5 were right on our doorstep, and it was only a 5 minute walk down to the Crocodile River - as they say in Marloth which borders the Kruger National Park, "you don't need to go looking for the animals, the animals come to you."
We left the Marloth Kruger Lodges feeling relaxed and rejuvenated, already planning our return trip.
We have heard of some REALLY nice 5 star Kruger National Park Guest Houses in the area, and will certainly give these a go (maybe a little closer to leopard Creek Golf Club)
Thanks to Pat at Marloth Kruger Park Lodges, for making our holiday so special.
