Perfect location, great price and super nice owners. Alison and Cor are passionate about nature and have an amazing knowledge about animals. They are also safari guides. They can arrange trips to Kruger Park, Swaziland, Panorama tour, Maputo and many more. If there are enough of nice people you can join the owners for delicious dinner. After a day or... More

The Elephant Cabin was so cosy. And Cor and Alison were very helpful and friendly Marloth Park is bordering Kruger National Park. The drive along the Crocodile River , as suggested by Cor was a wonderful way to spend the first da There are many places to eat withing Marloth Park and the shopping centre is well stocked.

My boyfriend and I couldn't have had a more amazing time in Kruger! Everything was perfect. From the location (in Marloth pak, bordering Kruger National Park), the rooms, the people, the hospitality, the vibes, the price, everything. Not only that it is a great spot to see wildlife in their natural habitats, it is also a great place to meet... More

I could not have chosen a better place to stay. It is close to the park, has a market with atm and stores only 10 min walking and is lovely. If you want to chill and relax and have dinner while hearing the lions and observing the giraffes in the backyard, this is the place! The owners are absolutely fantastic.... More

What can we say about Alison and Cor and their beautiful backpackers in Kruger...We were treated as part of their family since the day we arrived. Their passion and their hospitality have no limits. They organized tours in Kruger and Alison took us around Marloth Park to explore all the wildlife that it can offer. We struggled not having a... More

A really lovely clean, tidy, rustic place to stay. The rooms are brilliantly decorated. The pool was great to cool down in after a day in the Kruger. Marloth Park itself where the backpackers is based was fantastic to drive/walk around and see the wildlife living there too. Owned by a lovely couple who were clearly very enthusiastic about their...

We stayed for 3 nights in the Kruger Inn. The owners are very kind, helpful and very concerned with Marloth Park and the Kruger park. We received good and practical tips. We had an amazing first night when we were invited to the charity "braai" for the park. The room was for a backpacker luxurious and spacious with an own... More

My wife and I recently enjoyed a fantastic 4 day stay here and were extremely happy with the high level of quality at the Kruger Inn backpackers! Definitely not your typical standard quality often associated with usual backpackers, the Kruger Inn is definitely the place to stay if you're looking for both an unpretentious and inexpensive place to stay. It's... More
