Awaken to the “sound of Africa” as our resident pair of fish eagles proclaim this stretch of river as their own and onto the deck to check as the permanent hippo pod settle back into the river after a night of foraging and the crocs on the sandbanks catching the early morning sun. Relax over breakfast and enjoy the traffic as the animals come down to the river in front of you.

Let me start by saying we really enjoyed our time at Marloth Park and that Majuli River Lodge is in a fantastic location whch the raised deck takes advantage of. If the Lodge is brought up to a decent standard - as we were told by the local manager it is going to be - then it will be a...

Steve Sorry about what happened with your stay and thanks for getting in touch. It's a very special holiday home that I rent out so while all the previous reviews have been very favorable we may have taken our eyes off the ball.

Loved the place. Got the bush feel but with good security and conveniences. Wonderful river views and game sightings. The grocery stores in Marloth Park were actually cheaper than outside big stores. Very friendly afrikaan owners. Security and gate staff were great. Met personally with Heilga.What a doll! Answered all our questions and arranged tours. Just plan on spending time...

After getting settled (house keeper was very nice by the way, was available for...

Thanks for your booking and review. We are surprised that you felt the house is a little dated as we recently spent to update all the bedrooms. However we are excited as planning a complete re-vamp of the complete house to make it closer to 5 star. Thanks again, Derrick
