Welcome to Marloth Bush Retreat.

We are situated on the southern border of the Kruger National Park, with easy access to both the Crocodile Bridge and Malelane gates into Kruger. Our accommodation facilities are a tranquil, comfortable, thatched hide-away located in a conservation area with game wandering freely around your doorstep.

With the demand for accommodation in Kruger Park becoming greater and more difficult to book when you need it and with the increasing price of this accommodation, we offer a convenient alternative at a very competitive price.

We are also ideally situated as a stop over on the way to Mozambique.

Our accommodation is surrounded by natural thorn bush and the private waterhole is frequented by many species of game and bird life. In the evening, lesser bush-babies come within 2 metres of guests. African night sounds of lion roaring, hippo grunting and hyena calling, are part of the bush experience. Most days elephants can be seen feeding on the banks of the Crocodile River. Often lion wait here too, watching for prey animals coming down to drink. Leopard are also seen from time to time.

A wide variety of game and about 350 bird species are found around the Retreat in natural mixed thorn bush. This is a bird-watcher`s paradise. The iconic sound of an African fish-eagle`s call calms even the most stressed soul. For a full list, please enquire. A local Bird Guide booklet is available.

The close-up interaction with Africa`s animals is truly thrilling.

Access to the area via the N4 brings you to within a short drive from the lodge on a well maintained tarmac road. The remaining distance to the lodge is travelled on well maintained sand roads that can easily be travelled in any motor vehicle.

The Marloth Bush Retreat guest-house accommodates 8 people comfortably in 4 double bedrooms, which are all en-suite. Linen and towels are supplied. Please bring your own swimming towels so that you can make use of the splash pool to cool yourself during the warm days. Two cosy little lounges and wildlife magazines enhance your retreat into the bush.You can view more about Marloth Bush Retreat here, or our stunning river front cottage here.

We can offer you guided safaris in open safari vehicles, guided birding safaris and more ….

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of the African bush during your stay with us.
