About Marloth Park
Marloth Park borders the Kruger National Park south of the Crocodile River. Marloth Park is a wildlife conservancy area, with wild animals roaming free within the residential area (that's right, where you will be staying!).
But don't let this scare you off, the animals have been staying here for years, and are quite accustomed to seeing people in there habitat. Animals found in the park range from small buck and warthogs, to tall giraffes. Friendly rangers known as the Marloth Park Honorary Rangers are on call 24/7 to see to it that the locals get along.
Weather - When to Visit?
The weather in the Lowveld is relatively warm year round, especially during the (not particularly) rainy season - the summer months - November to March. During this time, the bush becomes a lush green, and it is common to see animals with their newly born young. This time of plenty is quite spectacular and should not be missed.
During the winter months - roughly May to August - the bush becomes relatively dry. The lack of thick foliage makes animal sightings much easier. Because water sources are fewer and more concentrated at this time of the year, animal movement patterns also become more predictable. Sitting at a waterhole in Lionspruit, or at the Kruger border near the Crocodile River, one can be sure to see a whole range of animals. Winter is the time to visit Kruger Park for big five sightings.
