                          Marloth Park is a wildlife conservation area about 7km in diameter, bordering Kruger National Park along the Crocodile River to the North. Lionspruit Nature Reserve lies to the South and is practically in Marloth Park.

                          Within Marloth Park, the absence of fences allows animals within the park to walk freely among the few houses. Animals within the park include kudu, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, hundreds of bird species, wildebeest, many different gazelle, a few smaller predators and reptiles, and many more. Although many of the species have become quite accustomed to humans, coming very close to the houses at times, they remain wild animals, and should always be treated with the necessary respect and caution.

                          Besides the wildlife and accommodation, Marloth Park has two general dealers, a fuel station, an ATM, and even a bottle store for the thirsty!
