Marloth Park 4392
Marloth 4392 is located on Seekoei Rd in the Eastern Side, which is the quieter side, of Marloth Park in Mpumalanga, South Africa. Marloth Park is 4 hours away from Johannesburg and is 92km from Nelspruit. The two Kruger National Park Gates are Malelane, 35km, and Crocodile Bridge, 22km away.
Marloth Park is classified as a Wildlife Conservancy and stretches over 2800 hectares which includes an enclosed game park called Lionspruit that contains 4 of the Big 5 (elephant excluded). No Fencing is permitted between the properties in Marloth Park, and this allows animals like giraffe, zebra, kudu, nyala, wildebeest, impala, warthog, waterbuck and duiker to roam freely, and they may at times come within meters of where you are. If you are a Birder then you may see a few of the 300 identified species in the area.
Marloth 4392 is a mere 30 meters from the border fence between Marloth Park and the Kruger National Park, and the road in front of the house stretches along the 15km boundary fence. A walk or drive along the fence will most certainly give you the opportunity to see any number of animals in the Kruger National Park that come down to the Crocodile river to drink or play, or simply to laze about. On many occasions we have witnessed herds of elephants come down to the river. There are many shady spots along the fence overlooking the river where you can sit and enjoy the surroundings and watch for animals.
At night when everything gets dark there are a myriad of sounds to tempt the imagination. The bush comes alive at night and sounds like the distant roar of lions, the grunting of the hippos in the nearby pools, the rumbling calls of elephants or simply the sounds and calls of thousands of insects can all be heard at some point. In the evenings there are a number of nocturnal animals like large spotted genet, bushbaby, duiker and owls that may visit the unit
Marloth Park has 2 small shopping centers that contain a number of shops including restaurant and sports bar, laundromat, convenience store, service station, butchery, liquor store and a hardware store. There is a medical doctor in Marloth Park.
