Love Nature: An African Experience

Imagine waking up to enjoy your coffee or tea on the deck and watch the world walk by.  This is the place, in Marloth Park you can see bush babies, giant kudu, giraffe, mongoose, wildebeests and warthogs!  This is their land too so they casually wander around the neighborhood, you can sit back and watch all the action.  Marloth Park shares a border with the massive Kruger Park so even while at the lodge you can experience nearly endless assortments of local animals.  
Our visit was in August, for us a perfect time; no bugs, weather got up to high 20’s C (low 80’s F) and Kruger Park was less busy during the day.  BTW – from the lodge to Crocodile Gate (Kruger Park entrance) it is approximately 25 minutes drive – easy!  

Every night we enjoyed using the bbq area and talked about our discoveries of the day while eating at the outside dining area with candlelight and fantastic southern hemisphere stars. 
Traveling to Kruger Park in August has other advantages.  As it is the dry season, the grasses start to wilt and die, thus making it much easier to see much of the wildlife.  In addition, as water becomes more scarce the remaining waterholes (ponds / lakes) become all that more popular during the day, allowing you to see more of the majestic animals. has many listings in South Africa and several around Kruger.  Property #0848 is a safri lodge that offers guests 3 bedrooms and two shower rooms, comfortably sleeping 6.  The location of the property is perfect for enjoying nature from the patio and is conveniently located for days in Kruger.  Relax in the evening with outdoor dining areas, a splash pool and thatched braai area and fire pit.
