Very good value and comfortable stay near the KNP
We had a wonderful stay at Marloth Park Riverside lodge. It is located about 15min drive outside the KNP crocodile bridge gate. The food was just ok but the staff is absolutely fantastic. Everyone is so nice and so welcoming. There are only a few rooms in the property. The ground floor rooms are bigger. Upstairs there is a view of the dry crocodile river bed from the large varanda and an honesty bar. I would prefer to stay downstairs. The adapted bathroom upstairs works but it is small and less comfortable. We were there during my birthday and I received a beautiful cake at dinner. What a lovely gesture from the staff and management. Thank you to Jessica, Keegan, Carlos (washed our car), the cook and the cleaning ladies whom I did not get their names. I really had a very good birthday and wonderful chats shared with the other guests at meal time. We recommend this lodge and we will be back

Fantastic lodge right near Kruger
Fantastic stay! Jessica was so accommodating and sweet, the room was spa-like, and the breakfast spread was the height of luxury. Only 15min from Kruger's Crocodile Gate. Would love to return!

Absolute GEM!
My aunt and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kruger Riverside Lodge. Jessica and Peter were such fantastic and accommodating hosts. The rooms and decor were stunning, and the breakfast spread went above and beyond. Prime location only 15 minutes from crocodile gate. Zebra and other wildlife walk around freely—an absolute treat to observe. We loved it so much that we booked a second night in our way over to Maputo (only a 2hr drive). Can't recommend it enough!!

Another great visit to South Africa
From arrival to departure, a most wonderful stay in Kruger Riverside Lodge. The service and food were outstanding. A real home away from home. And, as usual, Marloth Park was a great place to stay when visting the Kruger.

Peter und seine Mitarbeiter sind super nett und haben zu allem einen guten Tipp parat. Das Essen schmeckt sehr lecker. Die Aussicht auf den Fluss ist super. Heute zum Abschluss haben wir vom Balkon aus noch eine Herde Elefanten beobachtet. 🐘

Tolle Unterkunft! Wir waren eine Nacht hier, als Ausgangspunkt für den Kruger ist die Unterkunft sehr gut geeignet. Die Unterkunft ist top sauber und gepflegt und schön im Grünen gelegen. Die Gastgeber waren herzlich und sehr freundlich, das Essen (Abendessen und Frühstück) war einfach nur lecker. Wir würden jederzeit wieder herkommen und können die Unterkunft nur empfehlen

Peter und seine Frau haben uns einen unglaublich schönen Aufenthalt am Kruger Nationalpark beschert. Ihre Lodge ist in einem tollen Zustand und bis ins Detail wunderschön. Die Luxuszimmer im oberen Stockwerk sind geräumig und haben sehr bequeme Betten. Die Zimmer oben haben auch einen Balkon. Wir haben Halbpension gebucht und jeden Abend ein abwechslungsreiches 3-Gänge Dinner bekommen. Unten auf der Terrasse schauen abends auch gerne Mal Giraffen und Warzenschweine vorbei, was das Dinner wirklich einmalig macht! Die Lage war mit ca 15km zum Crocodiles Bridge Gate des Krugerparks optimal den Süden des Parks zu erkundigen. Die Gastgeber standen uns immer mit vielen Tipps für den park und die Umgebung zur Verfügung!
