Travellers' Choice
Kruger Riverside Lodge offers an unforgettable accommodation experience, where luxury meets the wild African Bush. It is a common sight for animals like Zebra, Giraffe, Wildebeest or Kudu to walk around the property grounds and even coming in for a closer look. The lodge is situated in Marloth Park Conservancy, which borders the Kruger National Park, one of the largest game reserves in South Africa. The lodge overlooks the Crocodile River where the African Big 5 can be spotted from our balcony and is situated 18 km from the Crocodile Bridge entrance to the Kruger National Park. Accommodation is offered in 5 Luxurious Rooms with air-conditioning, flat-screen television with DSTV satellite channels and an en-suite bathroom. The lodge offers a swimming pool, guest lounge and 2 balconies. One balcony faces the swimming pool, and the second balcony faces the Crocodile River in the Kruger National Park, where guests can enjoy a unique view into the Park and over the River. Having a nightcap while listening to a lion’s roar is the perfect way to end a day in the bush. Our guests are treated to a delicious breakfast and dinner outside on the patio, and daily game drives are available into the Kruger National Park.

Absolutely fantastic! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay At Kruger Riverside Lodge. We received outstanding service and food throughout our stay and were always made to feel welcome and were accommodated when needed. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly staff and told that its a four star lodge with five star service and that is exactly what we received - 5 star treatment from the time we arrived till the time we left. The Lodge is clean and comfortable with amazing views of Crocodile River and wild life roaming both around the Lodge and near the River. We had a fantastic stay that allowed for great relaxation - Thank you!

We arrived here initialy for 3 nights and ending up staying 7 ! Thanks to Riana and Peter and Staff for making our stay a dream. Food was fantastic the room fantastic the whole place was fantasric. The animals coming up to the room was a joy to watch a short walk to the view over the Kruger Park and of course the view on the Balcony over tge Riverside. Peter organised the day trip into the Kruger which was outstanding. We will be back again when we return from the UK.

can't improve on excellence , it was a wonderful location , long walks seeing the wildlife at close quarters and then if you need a park excursion the Crocodile Bridge gate is close by. Easy access by air direct from Cape Town.

Kruger Riverside Lodge is the perfect destination for anyone who wishes to do some mountain biking, some game viewing and a lot of relaxing. Day passes into Kruger expand the game viewing options, but game viewing while biking in Marloth is a different experience altogether. The food at the lodge is definitely worth mentioning. Lovingly prepared and delicious, it is excellent value for money. The professional and very friendly staff, the stunning view, the peace and quiet, the beautiful, clean accommodation and very reasonable prices make this a place we will definitely return to.
