sunset in marlothMarloth Park is a unique holiday town cum nature conservancy, where man and animal share the same domain. That is why many rules apply in this nature conservancy. It is a holiday town situated in the natural bushveld of the Mpumalanga Lowveld, adjacent to the famous Kruger National Park. Nestled in a bend of the Crocodile River, which forms the southern boundary of Kruger, the town recently achieved the status of a nature conservancy registered with the Parks Board of Mpumalanga.

The town shares most of the plant, animal and bird species found in the southern part of the Kruger Park, save for certain dangerous species (for example the Big Five, although they can be viewed across the river from inside the town). More than 40 percent of the available land area within the town is devoted to parkland where no building activity is permitted. This further enhances the opportunity to view animals and birds in their natural state.

It is less than 20 km from the Crocodile Bridge entrance to the Kruger National Park and game drives can be undertaken at a very economical rate thanks to the so-called Wild Card. In marloth there are a number of activity providers who take visitors on an open vehicle safari into the Kruger National Park. The town has the added attraction of being only one hours drive from the beautiful tropical and sub-tropical Mozambique coastal resorts as well as one 45 minutes drive to Swaziland.
