The 3 star graded , Phumula Kruger Lodge is situated in Marloth Park bordering the Kruger National Park, between Malelane and Komatipoort, close to Mozambique(30km) and Swaziland. Come and enjoy the peace of the African bush and relieve your stress . After hearing the lions at night, wake up to the sound of the Fish eagle calling, just in time to see the beautiful African sun rise- you're not alone...Phumula, meaning rest, is the ideal resting place. Our 3 star graded lodge is situated in Marloth Park, close to Mozambique and Kruger National Park. Centrally located, we serve as a basis from where Mozambique and Kruger National Park can easily be reached. We take pride in our hospitality and friendly service. As we roam on our hospitality and friendly service, we have been described as Bella Bellisimo by some of our Italian guests.
