Marloth Park on the Southern Border of the Kruger National Park

Marloth Park

Marloth Park is a very unique holiday township situated on the N4 Highway, 90km east of Nelspruit in the heart of the Mpumalanga. Its’ close proximity to the Kruger National Park, Maputo and Swaziland, make it the ideal holiday destination for the whole family.

Marloth Park is bordered by 15km of Crocodile River frontage which adjoins the Kruger National Park and is situated on land which was proclaimed in 1977 and subsequently subdivided into plots ranging from 1500m² to 2500m² in size. These plots were sold shortly after proclamation.

Marloth Park has a very rich variety of indigenous trees, shrubs and flowers. Chopping down of trees and fencing properties is strictly prohibited so that the sixteen hundred head of game comprising zebra, giraffe, impala, kudu, blou wildebeest and warthog have complete freedom of movement.  Sightings of lion, cheetah, wild dog, elephant and buffalo are common at the river and never cease to leave a lasting impression on those individuals lucky enough to experience it. Birders will be blown away by the bird life that is on offer. A previous study by the Northern Transvaal Ornithological Society listed 185 species of bird within Marloth Park.

Centrally located amenities include tennis courts, swimming pool and communal braai area overlooking the Crocodile River. This is a great spot to enjoy watching the game sauntering down to the river at sunset for a drink of water.

Once can access the Kruger National Park via the Crocodile Bridge Gate which is 15kms away or alternatively Malelane Gate which is 35kms away. The world renowned eateries and beaches of Maputo are one and a half hours drive away and Piggs Peak Hotel and Casino one hour and ten minutes drive away.
