Royale Marlothi Safari Lodge
Situated in the Marloth Park Wildlife Conservancy, Royale Marlothi is a haven for nature lovers and wildlife photographers. Its setting and lay out allows for an ultimate wildlife experience in luxurious accommodation!
Marloth has its own wildlife and boasts four of the big five with the exception of elephant, however as the Crocodile river forms the boundary between Marloth Park and the Southern Kruger National Park you are lightly to spot elephants playing in the river. Buffalo, rhino and lion are confined to Marloth’s private game reserve “Lions Spruit” where as the rest of the game such as Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, Blue wildebeest, Nyala, Impala, Warthog and plenty more aren’t restricted by fences and roam freely between the units. Night visitors include bushbaby, civet, porcupine and on rare occasions sightings of hyenna and leopard noted.
