Let me start by saying we really enjoyed our time at Marloth Park and that Majuli River Lodge is in a fantastic location whch the raised deck takes advantage of. If the Lodge is brought up to a decent standard - as we were told by the local manager it is going to be - then it will be a...

Management response:

Steve Sorry about what happened with your stay and thanks for getting in touch. It's a very special holiday home that I rent out so while all the previous reviews have been very favorable we may have taken our eyes off the ball. I will certainly address why there was nobody to meet you and why the house was not...

About the neighborhood
Do you want a real safari experience in a safe environment that is within the African bush but has all the amenities you would require like a restaurant, bar, and grocery shop?

Expect to see plenty of visitors in the garden like zebra, warthog, kudu, giraffe, etc. All the safe game are in the park but bordering Kruger you also experience close up sightings of the larger, more dangerous game like lion, elephant, rhino, etc. It means you are safe while enjoying your barbque but in the knowledge that big game are close by.
