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.

If you get the opportunity to stay at this first class lodge I suggest you snap it up. We were greeted by a very warm and friendly hello and refreshing drink.

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.

Thanks to Danielle and Tony for a wonderful stay. Lodge is well located for daily tours into Kruger or an evening walk along the boundary fence (which backs onto Kruger) where you're guaranteed to see game and if lucky a pride of lions feeding on the Crocodile River. The rooms are immaculate and configured well, with an additional personal touch... More

My partner & I recently stayed with Tony and Danielle at their lovely 'home' in Marloth Park. We had been suggested to stay in that area by some South African friends as it is easily accessible to the Kruger Crocodile Bridge Gate. Normally we tend to stay in self-service accommodation or in large corporate hotels. Turaco lodge is neither, instead... More
