It's friendly and cosy like your week end house. We were in tents, clean and neet. About the farm and the game, you can count on the rangers, they know a lot and love it, i asked a lot of questions, they were patient, gave me all my answers, and cool with kids. You can get close to some of the games, walk with them, pet them. You Wake up with a cheetah on your veranda...Great

We received excellent service upon arrival and during our stay in the camp. Our room was very clean and had all the necessary linen and towels. The aircon was a welcome item against the heat! The kitchen was also very clean and well equipped with everything we needed to prepare our food. It was great to have the staff clean up after us! We had a fire prepared in the boma every night in order for us to braai if we wished to. We enjoyed the game viewing trips in the afternoon best. The morning walks did not take place and we were a bit unhappy about this. We looked forward to this event. We also expected to see a bit more wildlife, but one must remember that their property is not that big. We were a bit bored during the day as one cannot drive alone on the game farm with your own vehicle. I suggest to take a lot of reading material with or rather go as a group of friends to keep yourself busy.

The people and facilities are very good. It really feels like a home away from home, just a little better ;-)
The game daily game drives were well presented and informative while also being exceptional fun!
Game viewing has never been better!

My wife and I spent one night at this facility. The food was good, the room exceeded our expectations, the guide (Jessica) was excellent and the walking safari with the Cheetah was outstanding. We also had a chance to view the Caracal which was also nice to see and pet. If we had more time we think it would be a great place to stay a couple days.

We had an absolutely amazing weekend celebrating a special birthday. Everything was perfect and the staff very friendly and helpful where and when needed. Accommodation at Marula Camp was brilliant - allows one to be in close contact with nature. Loved the tents. Will definately go again.

We arrived very late and missed the free included drive but were warmly wellcomed and showed around.

Lovely fire was on the go, ready for us to braai on and we had a lovely treat with a little bushbaby around the fireplace. The kitchen had all the necessary tools to make our stay very pleasant.

The next morning we woke up with a tame cheetah laying on the stoep purring away as if she was our own housecat!

We enjoyed the complimentary walk and I am sure the swimming pool would be lovely too.

Highly recommended and we wil surely return.

Great stay and spacious camp with only a couple tents/chalets. So most of the time it feels like your own game reserve, sitting out on the deck overlooking the reserve (buffalo and 2 rhinos walked by at 40 meters!)
