I really enjoyed my stay. It was the best vacation ever, being away from the world a bit was what I wanted. The sound of the birds was awesome, and having to see my man braaing for me in the bush was out of this world. I really had the best birthday ever.

The rooms are quite big and very nice equipped with large and comfortable beds. Food was very good and valuable. Very friendly staff. The whole lodge is nicely designed and located. Gas-Station and little grocery store are just around the corner.

We did not stay at this lodge (unfortunately) but we did enjoy a dinner on our last evening in Marloth Park. The food was lovely and good value for money, the service was excellent and the staff very friendly. What really did blow me away though was the setting! Exactly what one would expect from a quality South African bush... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Phumula Kruger Lodge and would always recommend. Our room was quite big and there was everything we needed. Having our own parking spot was also very convenient. The Marloth park, is only a 15-minutes drive away from the Crocodile Bridge Gate.

After having booked elsewhere which was a nightmare we desperately sought alternative accommodation and were referred to Phumula Kruger Lodge. We were welcomed with open arms and made to feel extremely comfortable. The food at the restaurant was incredible. We cannot thank our hosts enough for a wonderful stay.

he appartments, or chalets they call them, are nice, the decoration is lovely as well. Spacious enough for a family of 5 or 6 people. We had 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Only the bathroom on the upper floor is a bit unhandy, as it is located under the roof, which is slanted, and you hit your head easily. There... More

Our 3 star graded lodge is situated in Marloth Park, close to Mozambique and Kruger National Park. Centrally located, we serve as a basis from where Mozambique and Kruger National Park can easily be reached. We take pride in our hospitality and friendly service.
