Had a lovely stay here with my wife and parents. Fantastic location - easy access to Kruger NP. Not a massive fan of Marloth park - saw a lot of litter and rubble but that's not the hotels fault. Only downside was the constant power outages due to Load Shedding - not their fault but still a bit of an... More

I'm so pleased to hear that your time spent at the Lodge was lovely and thanks for taking the time to write a review. I haven’t noticed any rubble or much litter, and there is a voluntary local group who pick it up, as it can be harmful to the animals. We do experience power outages from time to time,... More

Although there are other restaurants in the Marloth Park area we opted to have all of our meals at the Lodge. The meals, particularly the Boma dinners... More

A 4 night stay allowed for the perfect mix of safari, trip to a Swaziland cultural tour, visit to a chimpanzee orphanage, and enough time to relax, read, and soak up the tranquility of the bush. The included meals offered great value and gave you the feeling that no expense was spared. The meals were prepared and served with pride... More

This is my second time at the Royal Kruger Lodge. I chose to return because of its proximity to Kruger's Crocodile Bridge Gate (about 25 min).
