This cottage is a private, self-catering house that comfortably sleeps 6-8. The cottage is located in Marloth Park, a buffer zone nestled up to the south edge of the Kruger National Park, South Africa's premier game reserve.
The house is 150m from the Kruger National Park's southern boundary fence. From here you have an elevated view of the Crocodile River into the park. You can also drive along the boundary fence and there is a lookout point where you may spend some time to observe the animals in the Kruger Park. From the cottage, you can venture into Kruger Park through one of two gates (Malelane or Crocodile), both gates an easy drive of approximately 35 km.
An open floor plan and vaulted thatch roof form a comfortable common area that connects to a large covered verandah, where a splash pool and braai (outdoor barbeque) awaits.
This unique house started as a traditional rondavel (circular house), which now constitutes the two smaller guest bedrooms and shared bathroom. Beautifully crafted additions form a fully functioning kitchen which shares a vaulted ceiling with the dining area and living room.
The master bedroom has a private (en-suite) bathroom. Cooling tiled floors throughout lead you to the verandah and pool where you can listen to the sounds of the hippos grunting in the river, the hooting of the owls and other wildlife as you enjoy the evening from the comfort of Kruger Cottage.
A local shop provides the basic essentials and if you wish to eat at a local restaurant, there are two lodges from which to choose. The local Bush Centre is 5km from the house and sells fuel, liquor, daily necessities, home bakery and a few more shops.
