Everything is perfect. We came for the last day of the year and we were highly surprised by the event organized by the menagment ( fireplace, music, drinks in the bush plus night safari when one can watch hippos, rhinos, cheetas and mamy more animals looking so different than by the day). Every single person working there is just at...

A warm and friendly place which make you feel like a friend and not a client. Close up views with animals on the game drives and there is cheetahs with which you can have interaction. Food and accommodation is also good and you meet other very interesting people at the lodge.

Having grown up in the area it was a privilege to return to the 'bush ' and it's wonders. Marula offers to my mind the best possible 'game-stay' experience. This is a family run operation, self catering, with great accommodation. Forget the fancy, posh lodges, here one us at one with all around and one leaves with an education in...

We stayed two nights in Marula camp and it was a great experience for the whole family. We had two cottages, one for us and one for the kids (6,10 and 12). The swimming pool was very nice to cool off a bit. One morning one of the cheetahs visited the camp and one evening a porcupine, It's so nice...

Thank you so much for the opportunity to experience "wild" in a totally different way, we booked a night at Tshukudu because the Kruger National Park was fully booked but I don't regret it for a second, what a great experience, the greatest moment was when one of the Cheetah siblings (think her name is Ntombi) made a turn on...

“If you are really into wildlife, you would love staying in number 20, because of the resident bash baby couple. They are excellent company! Number 20 is the furthest from the kitchen and also the most private - my favourite! If you'd like to be close to the kitchen and social areas, 16 and 17 are your best options.”

“We stayed in Cabin 16. Since it was close to the pool/sitting area, we were able to get wifi in our room. I don't think the other rooms were able to get wifi and you had to get wifi in the common areas.”
