We booked this lodge after numerous searches and decided on it by the reviews. We were not disappointed. We booked their 4 night package as this was our first trip to South Africa, and we were not sure what to expect. From the moment we arrived Tony and Danielle couldn't do enough for us. The room was fantastic and the... More

We loved Turaco. Wonderfully warm hosts, great food, terrific advice about the Park, a charming atmosphere. Highly recommended. Room was impeccably appointed, super-comfy bedding, all totally clean and fresh and lovely. A short drive to Kruger (15 minutes).

We recently stayed at Turaco Lodge, Marloth Park with hosts Tony and Danielle. We are happy to say that we had a great time, with great hosts, great accomodation, great food and great conversation. We highly recommend their genuine, typical welcoming South African hospitality, in their lovely lodge.

Turaco is the perfect getaway and also gateway into the Kruger Park. Tony & Danielle run a very professional show, rooms, amenities and service all are perfect. Book half-board so you don't miss out on their amazing cooking skills for dinner.
