It is always so exciting to see animals in the wild, the beautiful trees and plant life. What was sad to see is the erosion in large areas of the park. The Olifants river looks bad with all the algae. We have tried to ask...More

We (parents + 2 kids) stayed in Jackelberry Ridge in Marloth Park next to Crocodile Bridge entrance ( 20 min) in a very nice accomodation, half tent, half house. We highly recommend this place also for more persons.
