We were two families, ten in total. Lodge is very conveniently located 20 min. away from Crocodile Bridge gate... Marloth park itself is quite wild with roaming animals which makes the experience all the more exciting. You really don;t feel that you're stepping out of Kruger at all. Staff were very accommodating and really took care of our comfort. they... More

Hi Laila. Im glad you enjoyed your time here with us at the Grand Kruger Lodge. Peak seasons around the Kruger often results in morning queues into the park. Luckily our game views get priority over the general public so we are allowed to bypass the queue meaning we can get into the park before everyone else! We have recently... More

We just returned from a stay at Grand Kruger Lodge and were very disappointed. Having read the great reviews here at tripadvisor, our expectations were quite high. Some of the things that we certainly disliked: -sheets were not clean (had stains on them) -when asked for a baby cot for our little one, no sheets, pillows or blankets were provided... More

We really enjoyed our stay of 5 nights. The place was wonderful. Great facilities, fantastic food and great staff. Our chalet was clean and very comfortable. The buffet meals were absolutely delicious. We had a well needed rest but close enough to Kruger national Park to enjoy a drive as well

Attentive and friendly staff. We were on a half board basis and the meals were good quality and beautifully presented. Although the side roads within Marloth Park are gravel, it is an easy drive to Crocodile Bridge Kruger gate, and there are lots of outings which staff at the Lodge can arrange. To be recommended.
