Tshukudu Marula Camp
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Marula camp is a great place to get up close and personal with several animals ... cheetahs, wild cats are regulars at the camp. The game drives are great and we were fortunate to have excellent lion and rhino sightings! The accomodation is lovely and kitchens are well equipped. Can highly recommend this venue and we will definately be back soon!

Thank you for the review of Marula Camp. It's wonderful to hear that you were able to have such great sightings even though our bush is so thick at present. We are also very happy that you found our kitchens to be sufficient for your requirements. We hope to see you again in the future.

We spent one night here on our way to Kruger and were very impressed. Very clean facility, surrounded with the sounds of nature, and experienced the morning walk where we were able to see leopards and pet a Cheetah. We had an incredible time and would definitely stay again.

This was the best value-for-money experience ever! The staff were extremely helpful and Chris Sussens was an excellent guide and shared his wonderful knowledge with us. The camp is situated in an idyllic unspoilt area. Will definitely be back!

Very good private park. Price versus quality is one of the best you can find.
We stayed in the camp and were at the time the only visitors. (lucky us). We had a private afternoon drive with jessica and really had an amazing time. We saw so much and some very special things as well. We saw a hippo chasing two rhino who were drinking at his pool. Amazing. And i can say the rhino's were scarred. Also a complete lion familiy wiithin one meter from our vehicle.
At the campsite the semi tammed cheetah was good company.
On the morning walk you can learn so much about the bush aswell. All rangers have a great knowhow of the bush. The tent we stayed in was luxuorious and bathroom bathroomfacilities ensuite are comparable with hotel ones.
I would recommend this camp.
And if you dont prefer self catering and require some more luxe then stay at the lodge.
We had our dinner at the lodge one night, the buffet was really nice and tasty.

Thank you for the time taken to review Marula Camp. Our mid-weeks out of season are always quiet and the perfect time to visit if you prefer some hands-on private time with our animals and Ranger. We are glad that you found the accommodation to exceed your expectations. Meals booked at our Main Lodge are perfect for those wanting to experience the more relaxed atmosphere of the self-catering camp, without having to do your own cooking.
