Marloth Park (Nyati Safari Bush Camp)

Marloth Park is a small town-cum-nature reserve bordering the Kruger National Park and is extremely popular with those wanting to visit the Kruger and get a sense of the African bush.

Marloth Park lies on the southern border of the Kruger National Park, on the N4 between Malelane and Komatipoort. It is 14 kilometres from the Crocodile Bridge Gate into Kruger, 35 kilometres from the Malelane gate. It is only an hour’s drive from Mozambique, making Marloth Park a convenient stop-over for those on an adventurous Southern African road trip.

In terms of infrastructure, the town itself is tiny, giving one a real sense of immersion in nature. In between the service station, one or two shops, other basic amenities , wild animals roam freely. The situation is such that you may even find yourself enjoying your morning coffee as zebras sip from the swimming pool or needing to dodge a herd of waterbuck as you make your way to the restaurant.


Other animals roaming freely in the greater 3000 hectare Marloth Park area include bushbuck, impala, kudu, baboons, vervet monkeys, warthog and giraffe. In a fenced-off section of the Marloth Park reserve called Lionspruit, you will find lions, rhinos  and even buffalo.

Things to do in Marloth Park tend to centre around game viewing and taking in the bush atmosphere. The natural boundary between the Marloth Park Holiday Township and the Kruger National Park is the Crocodile River, home to hippos and drinking spot for elephants and other game not necessarily found in Marloth Park itself.

Perhaps one of the nicest things about Marloth Park is that guests can wonder through the wilderness safely. A stroll along the Crocodile River, following the Kruger Park fence, can expose you to numerous animal sightings without ever putting you at risk.
