3 Bedrooms , 4 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Marloth Park, Mpumalanga
Welcome to Alegria – a Beautiful House located in Marloth Park, just fifteen minutes drive from the Crocodile bridge entrance to Kruger National Park. Marloth Park is a Wildlife Reserve, so we have Giraffe, Kudu, Zebra, Wildebeest, Impala and many more beautiful animals wandering through our garden.

Alegria offered us the opportunity to be close to nature - with visits from wildlife at night - and secure enough indoors for those in our group less comfortable with visitors! A spacious living area and kitchen provide a central hub and enough privacy between...More

About the neighbourhood
Marloth Park is both a holiday resort and a game reserve. Houses in the park are built in such a way that they are environ­mentally friend­ly and you walk straight from you house into the bush. There are no fences around the individual plots so local animals roam around freely. Hunting within the park is prohibited, so animals are not very shy. Within the Marloth Park area is a separate game reserve called Lionspruit where lions, buffaloes, rhinos and leopards can be seen.
In the evenings, back at the Cottage we have our BBQ, normally listening to the Kruger Lions making a big noise (lots of good roaring), and the Hyenas. We have a Splash Pool in the Entertainment Area to keep you cool in the Summer. There is also a big communal Pool at the Watergaat Restaurant. This restaurant is abo...
