Bushbaby Lodge in Marloth Park
Our four legged friends like kudu, zebra, warthog, mongoose and monkey visit on a regular basis, and some will feed out of your hand - so keep the food ready! The lovely male bush-buck with mom and lad as well as the small duiker family also visits during early morning and afternoon. The Natalse fisant (Natal spurfowl), flocks of guinenafowl, and other birds will pick up their food during the day.
When the sun sets, you will get the fire burning, and while relaxing around it, you may be surprised by a visit by civet and the shy bushbaby (likes banana and yoghurt).
Listen carefully to the sounds of nature, and you will hear the lion roaring from the Kruger Park, hippo grumbling in the Crocodile River and hyena laughing while scavenging around.
