Wonderful hospitality; loved the experience! Home away from home with that extra special touch that makes it a truly 5 star experience. The home cooked meals and special catering was top notch. Thank you Tony and Danielle - we will definitely see you again.

We stayed at the Turaco Lodge in January and had a wonderful experience! My husband and I had never been on Safari or to that part of Africa. Access to the park was easy and the experience we had was amazing. Tony was a great guide and Danielle cooked some awesome meals. Each day, we'd come back to Turaco exhausted... More

Tony and Danielle welcome you with warmth into their lodge and cater to your individual needs. The rooms are comfortable and the location is a short drive to Crocodile Bridge that serves as one of the entrances to the Kruger Naitonal Park.

Turaco Lodge offers a very restful, tranquil setting in the bush. Tony and Danielle are excellent hosts that make every effort to make your stay enjoyable. Because of the setting you are forced to relax. Good location for access to the southern part of Kruger National Park.

The best lodge ever in Marloth Park. Excellent rooms. All the rooms are clean and the beds very confortable. The location is very good. It's near the Kruger Park. In the garden of the lodge we can see several wild animals like zebras or bushbabies. I love the home food made by Danielle and the location of the lodge.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review for Turaco Lodge - much appreciated!

We stayed here for 2 nights before moving to a neighbouring lodge in the park. We arrived late and Danielle and Tony made us feel right at home.

We were referred to the Turaco Lodge through another lodge in Marloth Park due to some travel plans changing and we couldn't have been happier. The house is a cozy 3 Bedroom and has stunning design and layout. If you like a bit of high end comfort with a very laid back homey atmosphere you will love it. We only... More
