Tucked away in the bush, surrounded by woodland you will find this little gem. Here you will truly feel at one with nature. Ideally situated on parkland, but near enough to the must-visit Kruger fence line. A short drive to local shops & restaurants and the Kruger National Park.
Arguably the most import part of a holiday house in Marloth Park is the outside entertainment area – as being outside in the bush is the best part being here!
Our Skilpad studio has an intimate entertainment area, ideal for couples. And it is surrounded by bushveld which is frequented by many different animals – Kudu, Warthog, Duiker and Impala, to name just a few.
An outdoor shower built close to the studio is the perfect place to cool down on a hot afternoon, a true bush experience!
Okay “WOW!” What an epic place! Our stay was amazing, absolutely amazing. The check in was easy, it was a key with a lock box so we were able to check in without rushing to meet a specific time. The place was small but perfect for the two of us, very clean and it had everything we needed. We did day trips into the Kruger and saw so so so much from the crocodile Bridge gate up towards lower Sabie. We saw the big 5 as well as wild dog and cheetah on the first day!! However you don’t even need to leave Marloth Park to see game! Along the fence line you can walk or drive and see elephants, lion and more! Inside the fence line, walking around your accommodation you will see kudu, Warthog, bush buck, zebra, Girraffe, Squirrels, bush baby, duiker and more! Many animals will even eat from your hand! I was in awe. Just wow. Sharing your coffee with a Kudu in the morning and sharing a braai with them in the evening is unbelievably unique. Emile was an amazing host, very happy to send us (Hidden by Airbnb) s about different sightings of lion, leopard and ellies.. We were able to see 5 lion with 2 cubs close to the fence line because of his very quick messages with the exact locations. I highly recommend this spot. There are other stays available with Hello Kruger inside the park if looking for anything bigger for more of a family stay.
With a sliding door opening up to the outside entertainment area and a big window in the living area and bedroom, you can enjoy the animal visitors even from within our air-conditioned cottage.
The cottage has an open-plan kitchenette and lounge, with a minimalist eye to focus on the beauty of nature. The kitchen contains all the essentials to make your stay comfortable.
The bedroom has a Double-sized bed and is fitted with a mosquito net. High-thread count linen and hyper-allergenic pillows were carefully selected. The bathroom has a shower.
It is the perfect base for your adventures in the bush!
