About Marloth Park
Marloth Park is a wildlife conservation area bordering Kruger National Park along the Crocodile River. Home to a diverse range of African wildlife, the park grants visitors the opportunity to live among the safer species in absolute comfort and luxury.
Animals have the right of way within Marloth Park, and are allowed to roam free between houses, often coming right up to the house. Although most species are very curious, they remain cautious, and it is important for their and your own safety that they be treated as the wild animals that they are.
Safety and Security
Larger predators from Kruger National Park and Lionspruit are kept out of Marloth Park by means of fences and the Crocodile River that acts as a natural border. Nonetheless, wandering away from the house at night is not encouraged - this is the African Bush. Local security services and the remoteness of Marloth park ensure a safe stay, allowing you to relax and escape the gridlock of the city.
Taking the N4 from Johannesburg to Komatipoort, the Marloth Park turnoff is marked by a sign 19km past Malelane. A short and well-kept dirt road leads to the Marloth Park gate, where rangers assist travellers 24 hours a day. Our friendly booking agent will arrange a meeting to pick up keys or assist with directions to the house.
Services, Shops and Entertainment
Marloth Park operates as a small town (with a decidedly wild twist), offering a few truly South African restaurants and pubs interspersed in the thick bush. Two general dealers, a liquor store, hardware store, petrol station and an ATM ensure comfort in the bush. Locals are friendly and welcoming to travelers and many offer services such as guided safaris and general advice about the movement of animals in the area.
