The best experience ever! Everybody was so kind and helpful, dinner and breakfast were delicious! At night there were some Kudus around the pool and nature is just so blessed here. If you are looking for a unique experience you should definitely try it.

Excellent!! Very clean, amazing helpful staff, and phenomenal overall stay. Highly recommended! Air Conditionig works well, rooms are clean and modern, amazing waterfall shower heads, and delicious home cooked dinners every night eaten family style with the other guests. I felt so much at home! They also help pre-book all your safaris at Kruger Park, and are very flexible and accommodating to make all guests feel welcome. Amazing!

Friendly lodge near Kruger
Turaco is about a 30 minute drive from the Kruger, situated in quiet Marloth Park. The owners, Tony and Danielle, were great hosts and made us feel at home. We stayed in new rooms which were very comfortable and clean and enjoyed the home cooked food.

Hosts were super. Felt like home from home. Really enjoyed our stay and in particular the close proximity to the Kruger Park.

10/10 Exceptional

Marina and Dirk were fantastic hosts, very knowledgeable about wildlife and the surroundings and fun to talk to. They welcomed us warm and happily walked the extra mile if need be. To do a braai/bbq evening for us was an experience in itself which we enjoyed to the fullest. It was amazing to have animals come right to your doorstep and there were all sorts of them. The lodge itself is very clean, nicely equipped, comfortable and in a nutshell a home away from home. It is a perfect starting point both for just enjoying Marloth Park and going to Kruger NP. We can happily recommend this place to anyone looking both for a comfortable stay with a twist of bush life and an interest in flora and fauna. Looking forward to coming back soon.

Herzlicher Empfang mit Hintergedanken!
Nach unserem Eintreffen wurden wir sehr herzlich begrüßt. Das Zimmer ist modern und die Gastgeber freundlich. Leider hatten wir aber das Gefühl, dass diese Freundlichkeit einen Hintergedanken hatte... Bei unserem Eintreffen haben wir erzählt, dass wir gerne eine Safari unternehmen würden. Die Gastgeber waren dann so freundlich und haben dies organisiert. Leider aber ohne uns über die Kosten und die Dauer zu informieren. Dabei haben die Gastgeber für die Vermittlung ordentlich mit verdient. Des Weiteren lag keine Preisliste aus und es wurde davon ausgegangen, dass wir zum Abend in der Lodge essen, ebenfalls für einen stolzen Preis, den wir erst bei Check-Out kommuniziert bekommen haben.
