“Don't stay anywhere else in Marloth Park!”
Reviewed 27 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Just the perfect place to stay to visit the Kruger Park. Paul and Les make it effortless with careful attention to every detail. Our lodge was perfect and we felt were in the bush proper with zebra, kudu and warthog (the latter two hand fed!) ever evident. The evening genet and bushbaby were huge bonuses. Recommended without hesitation.

“Gem of Marloth Park”
Reviewed 2 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

Easy drive from JHB airport and Paul & Les are assisting you all the way. Beautifully equipped house with everything one might need. Comfortable beds, GREAT aircons for those hot days and a great pool to splash in after your game drives. The interior decorating is simple but exquisite. For us the highlights of the 4 night stay was Paul coming around the corner with his wheelbarrow and the 40' degree game drive with Kerry from African Pride.
We are already planning our return trip. Don't waste your time searching for other accommodation, there's nothing better!

“Whatever you can imagine, this place is way better!”
Reviewed 19 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We hoped that our last week in South Africa would be our best but we had no idea it would be the best of the best. The owners, Les and Paul, are some of the friendliest and funniest owners we've ever rented from. They couldn't have been more helpful and their recommendations were always spot on (Kerry of Kruger Pride Safaris was the tip of a lifetime!). The house is stunning and the attention to detail is nothing short of gorgeous. Modern, elegant, design-rich and super comfortable. In the photos, you see an animal or two on the grounds but every early evening, just about the time we poured ourselves some wine, the wild parade began. The zebras were usually the first to show up, followed by a warthog and then the migration of the kudus. Paul left us food for the animals and hand feeding the zebras and kudus was one of the highlights of our stay. Then there's Kruger Park, just across the river! What a wonderful place, lovely people and memories to last a lifetime. We hope to return as soon as we can. Thanks a million.

“modern accomodation in the bush”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We've been staying for 4 nights at Birdsong Africa Lodge and what a pitty we didn't stay for longer. The lodge is an easy 4h drive out of Jo'Burg airport and near to the Crocodile Bridge Kruger gate. The kitchen of the lodge is very well equiped and the 2 rooms come with
aircon and each has its own private bathroom. Nice terrace with braai overlooking the bush. Zebra, kudu and warthog are often seen around the lodge. Small supermarket, butcher,liquor store about 1km away. If you don't want to selfdrive into Kruger you can go with Kerry from Kruger Pride Safaris. She's a very knowledgeable guide and her prices are very reasonable. The hosts Less and Paul were very helpful and went out their way to let you feel at home. They just finished a new lodge next to Birdsong ( Nextdoor).

“Awesome hosts, excellent location for wildlife experience, animals at doorstep. Fantastic place highly recommended.”
Reviewed 19 February 2016 for a stay in October 2015

Fantastic location that we based ourselves. A well kept secret. Les and Paul are wonderful hosts generous with their time and bundles of info. Birdsong is in a beautiful peaceful bush location. Close to crocodile bridge entrance( main entrance to Kruger Park), local pubs,shops and other places to explore. We found Birdsong a fabulous sanctuary after a big day out on safari. We were able to come back relax by the private pool and have a few drinks, or go to the local hotel for a meal and drinks. In the morning and evenings animals come to feed on grass. These included zebras, giraffe,warthogs, kudos,and wilder beasts just to name a few. My husband and I rate this as the best holiday we've had. We used Kruger Pride safari run by Kerry. Her knowledge of the park and its wildlife is extraordinary. We went on 4 safari days each day unveiled its own special surprises. We saw all the big 5 and much more. We rate everyone and everything to do with Birdsong very highly.

Reviewed 12 February 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Birdsong is a magical place! The lodge is beautifully designed - spacious and light - with a Zen feel - and while it is modern in design it sits perfectly in the bush setting. Creatively furnished with attention to detail - a lot of thought has gone into each piece. The outdoor entertaining area is the magical part with all sorts of visitors from the surrounding bush coming to say goodday! Hosts Les and Paul couldn't do enough for us. I'll be returning soon and this time would love to try out their new lodge Nextdoor - it looks equally magical.
