Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our hosts were extraordinary and went out of their way to ensure we all had a great time. This lodge really felt like our home from home. Good food, excellent service, clean and very comfortable rooms, and a very relaxed atmosphere. Also very close to the Kruger Park which allows a full day in the Kruger... More

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

Wonderful hosts, good food. We had two of the three rooms for our party. The hosts arranged and led our excursion to Kruger, which was wonderful. It's a small place, and you feel like guests of the inn keepers, so if you want to be anonymous, this is not for you, but we loved it. Very clean, nicely decorated. We... More
