Marloth Park is a unique project. It opened in 1972 as a holiday township, though a large part of the park remained natural. The infrastructure is well developed. There are no internal fences and the vegetation remains in its original state. Marloth Park is separated from Kruger National Park by a boundary fence and the Crocodile River for +16 km. From time to time you could be lucky to see a catch by Lions, Leopards, Wild-dogs and Hyenas. The Elephants come down during the day to bath in the river.
Inside Marloth Park, the freedom of movement is remarkable. Tourists can ride a bicycle, jock or go for a walk on their own through the African bush. They can also drive around in their own high clearing vehicle. After sun set and till sun rise movement is confined to the housing units. While walking along the Crocodile River, visitors can watch spectacular wildlife scenes in the adjacent Kruger National Park.
