Marloth Park Introduction

Marloth Park is a holiday town like no other. Just like any other resort town, it has hotels, shops, restaurants and other service facilities to keep visitors happy. But unlike other resort towns, Marloth Park also doubles as a conservation area. Very little development has touched the land and fences are forbidden. Thus, wild animals except for big cats can move about freely. This wild vibe is fitting for a community on the southern border of Kruger National Park.

Hotels in Marloth Park

There are plenty of hotels in Marloth to choose from. These hotels are all designed to look like bush-style homes, constructed using natural materials such as stone and thatch. But there's nothing primitive about these properties. They are luxurious, tastefully decorated country villas with comfortable, spacious rooms and a wide variety of amenities. Typical amenities you'll find in these picks are swimming pools, gardens for attracting wildlife, restaurants, bars and lounges, along with fitness centres and full-service spas. Some guesthouses can also arrange tours to Kruger National Park and other attractions in the surrounding area.

Where to stay

It doesn't matter where you stay in Marloth Park, as the whole area is undeveloped on purpose. There's no real advantage to staying at a particular location here. In deciding where to stay, the only question to consider is whether you want to stay near lions or elephants. Staying on Wildgoose Street or Olifant Drive will give you easy access to Lionspruit Game Reserve, the only fenced area in Marloth Park, which houses a population of lions. On the other hand, staying on Crocodile Road will treat you to marvellous views of Crocodile River. Kruger National Park's elephants use it as a watering hole.

Things to see

In Marloth Park, the wildlife will come visit you where you stay. You'll get to interact with animals like zebra, impalas, kudus, antelopes and birds, even if you just sit outside your accommodation. The lions, however, are fenced off at Lionspruit Game Reserve for obvious reasons. Keeping the lions company in this 1,500-hectare reserve are buffalo and rhinos. There are also rare white rhinos in the reserve. Marloth Park shares a border with Kruger National Park, South Africa's largest game reserve. This 2-million-hectare sanctuary is divided into 4 regions, each representing a unique ecosystem. Big Five game live in Kruger NP, as well as smaller animals and birds. The reserve also has patches of baobab, mopane, marula and fever trees. If you find yourself suddenly longing for some civilization, you can drive to nearby Malelane Camp. Malelane has 2 golf courses – Malelane Golf Club and Leopard Creek Country Club.
