Bushbaby Lodge is a highly recommended property for self catering in Marloth Park for tourists visiting the Wild Frontier region.

About Bushbaby Lodge

You will find this lovely two to eight sleeper fully air-conditioned self-catering lodge - situated in a ‘game corridor' - deep in the heart of the African bush, bordering the world famous Kruger National Park. Enjoy the magnificent nature and well visited drinking hole right in front of you!

Our four legged friends like kudu, zebra, warthog, mongoose and monkey visit on a regular basis and some will feed out of your hand - so keep the food ready! The lovely male bush-buck with mom and lad as well as the small duiker family also visits during early morning and afternoon. The patrys, flocks of guinea fowl and other birds will pick up their food during the day.

When the sun sets, you will get the fire burning, and while relaxing around it, you may be surprised by a visit by civet and the shy bushbaby (likes banana and yoghurt). Listen carefully to the sounds of nature, and you will hear the lion roaring from the Kruger Park, hippo grumbling in the Crocodile River and hyena laughing while scavenging around.


Choose from our three sleeper Baby Lodge and our six sleeper Bush Lodge. Both are well equipped for self catering and make use of a shared swimming pool.

The following is included:
• All linen, sheets and duvets
• Crockery and cutlery
• Dishwashing liquid and dish cloths
• Towels

The following is not included:
• Swimming towels
• Toiletries
• Food and drinks
• Remember the food for the four legged friends
• Fire wood
• Malaria tablets and insect repellent


While driving or hiking in Marloth Park, you may find game like kudu, zebra, 'blou-wildebees', impala, giraffe, duiker, warthog, mongoose, monkeys, baboon and shy bush-buck on your way. The lodge is conveniently situated only a few minutes' drive from the Crocodile River, bordering the Kruger National Park, from where you can do game viewing or from your vehicle or lookout into the Kruger Park. Great idea for a sun downer!

You will find hiking trails in Marloth along the border with Kruger Park, as well as lookout points and bird hides. Big elephant and buffalo herds are regular sightings from the border. The river bed is also a popular area where lion stalk and catch their pray. Hippo, crocodile, water buck, bush buck, giraffe, impala, zebra, warthog, as well as rhino and many bird species can be seen during your game drive.

Game viewing in Kruger National Park:
The Lodge is half an hour's drive from the Crocodile Bridge and Malelane entrance gates to the Kruger National Park.

Other activities:
Busbaby is close to Komatipoort where you can do tiger fishing. The lovely Panorama Route through Sabie, Mac Mac Falls, Gods Window etc is within driving distance for a day visit. Elephant rides as well as helicopter and microlight rides are available at Malelane and Hazyview. A visit to the chimpanzee sanctuary near Nelspruit is also very popular.

Hi Hannes, dit was n baie lekker kuiertjie by Bush baby lodge! Sal defnitief weer gebruik maak van jul plekkie. Die diere wat uit jou hand kom eet was n belewenis vir ons. Nie gedink dat Kudu, Zebra ens uit jou hand kos sal neem nie maar toe kry ons n surprise! Die nag apies het elke aand kom inloer by ons en van die kossies kom eet wat ons uitgesit het. Die lodge was baie gemaklik ingerig en alles was beskikbaar wat ons nodig kon kry. Lekker om jou en jou vroutjie te kon ontmoet, sal jul verseker weer te siene kry!! Groete Brett en Michelle Blignaut.

Dit was ongelooflik lekker. Ons het so baie wild gesien rondom die lodge. Die Zebras en Kudu's het selfs uit ons hande geeet. Die nag apies was net so oulik, elke aand kom kuier!
