After having booked elsewhere which was a nightmare we desperately sought alternative accommodation and were referred to Phumula Kruger Lodge. We were welcomed with open arms and made to feel extremely comfortable. The food at the restaurant was incredible. We cannot thank our hosts enough for a wonderful stay.

he appartments, or chalets they call them, are nice, the decoration is lovely as well. Spacious enough for a family of 5 or 6 people. We had 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Only the bathroom on the upper floor is a bit unhandy, as it is located under the roof, which is slanted, and you hit your head easily. There... More

We were looking for a place in Marloth Park to have a nice breakfast. This is a beautiful lodge and a lovely restaurant. Breakfast was served nicely although a bit cold. However, due to the setting and ambiance we will visit again.

Our 3 star graded lodge is situated in Marloth Park, close to Mozambique and Kruger National Park. Centrally located, we serve as a basis from where Mozambique and Kruger National Park can easily be reached. We take pride in our hospitality and friendly service.
