About Getaway Bush
Getaway Bush is situated in the Marloth Park nature reserve which borders the famous Kruger National Park. Here you can experience a unique but inexpensive bushveld holiday.
The rustic self-catering holiday home offers all the comforts you need to relax and enjoy Africa at its best. The Crocodile River is close to the house; about 100m to view any of the Big 5 drinking or bathing in the river.
No fencing is allowed around the houses in Marloth Park, so the animals roam freely. Animals such as giraffe, zebra, kudu, wildebeest, impala, warthogs and many more. An abundant bird life is seen especially in winter months. Wake up to the cry of the fish eagle flying over head or the chatter of monkeys. At Getaway Bush you can experience a true feeling of Africa.
Self Catering Accommodation
Getaway Bush is an ideal self catering family unit. The house and a cottage sleeps two to 10 guests and only one group of guests is booked at a time. If you book the house only, the cottage remains empty for the duration of your stay.
Relax and view the animals from within the air conditioned house or cottage or laze outside at the lovely paved entertainment areas. Both entertainment areas are enclosed for your safety; to cater for those who are afraid of the animals or families with children.
Cool down under the outside showers or splash pools, great for hot summer days or shower under the stars and moonlight or by candle light (for those romantics).
While sitting around the fire (boma) in the evenings lion, hyena and hippo are often heard. There are bush babies that live in the tree top overhead and at dusk they come out to play. Watch the fire flies flicker past during certain times of the year. There is a special ambiance on full moon nights and the starry nights are spectacular.
Attractions & Activities
Take a 10km drive along the fence in Marloth Park, which borders the Crocodile River / Kruger National Park, it is not uncommon to see a few of the Big 6 (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, rhino or hippo).
There are many very large crocodiles in the river and they can be seen basking in the sun. If you are lucky you may see a lion kill. Another bonus is the warm Lowveld winters, when more animals are seen.
