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 greeted by some zebra, which my 6 year old son got to feed. Tony took us on a morning game drive and knew so much about the park and wildlife.... More

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

As a family of four with two kids under the age of ten we felt perfectly at home at Turaco. The hosts are the lodge's strongest asset! They are friendly, welcoming, and warm.

Arriving in Turaco Lodge after 16 hours of travelling was wonderful. Tucked away in the bush, everything seems to melt away in the distance once you step through their doors! The place is beautifully done up, rooms are spacious yet cozy, and the living area seems to constantly beckon you to just sit, and watch the zebras kudus and warthogs... More

What a lovely weekend I had; a warm welcome followed by some rest in a peaceful spacious room. The dining area is very welcoming. The fresh home-baked choc cake is totally unforgettable! I would go back anytime!

It was the most fun safari in my life. Host is very kind, I was easy to contact. And meal was delicious. In the garden, I was able to spend the holiday very enjoyable and wild boar, zebra, such as beautiful birds visited one after another. I think a lot of people live a fun vacation here.

For a stay in Marloth Park, Turaco Lodge was the right choice. The classy accommodation ensured that we enjoyed a more than comfortable stay with big beds and lots of extra space for all our stuff in the room. Access to the Kruger Park is easy and the yummy packed breakfast meant we could be there early. To come back... More

We had a lovely 3 night stay at Turaco, enjoying the warm hospitality, humor, and extensive environmental knowledge of Danielle and Tony. It was great to sit outside by the fire talking about the day's wildlife sightings, the amazing ecology of Kruger and Marloth Park, and a variety of amusing stories as the warthogs and wildebeests visited, a nearby lion--incongruously...
