Marloth Park is a residential game reserve situated between Malelane and Komatipoort,in Mpumalanga. It is unique in the fact that visitors may walk, cycle, or run with the plains game that live freely in the reserve. Marloth Park has a 15km common boundary (The Crocodile River) with the southern Kruger National Park, and offers some marvelous trials along the mighty Crocodile River and many back roads and trails. Big 5 game viewing on the river is available and visitors are sometimes even treated to seeing the odd "kill" by some of the lions that inhabit the area. The river is teaming with pods of hippo, crocodile, and water bird.

Marloth Park has a substantial population of plains game including giraffe, kudu, bushbuck, zebra, wildebeest, impala, duiker, and warthog. Over 380 spices have been identified in the park and bird viewing is made easy by the fact that one can walk around and get up-close and personal.

Mjejane Game Reserve

Mjejane Game Reserve is situated on the banks of the Crocodile River where lush riverine forest is home to a stunning variety of birdlife. Green pigeons fluttering among leaves in search of wild fruit, the haunting cry of the fish eagle, and the scarlet flash of a purple-crested lourie in flight.

The 4,000 hectare reserve is located within the Kruger National Park and borders the southern boundary of the park. Mjejane comprises unspoiled indigenous bush with over 10km of river frontage and the area is renowned for its superb game viewing.

A low-water bridge gives direct access to the Kruger National Park.In addition, the forest is also home to the elusive leopard and elephant breeding herds that frequent the area. Imagine waking up to the sound of a hippo only a few metres from your luxury bedroom deck or watching herds of up to 500 buffalo and prowling predators shadowing the herd?

Mjejane is an inheritance for future generations. Recognising the need to protect the physical and spiritual resources of this magnificent tract of land, Chief Lugedlane has ensured its preservation for generation to come. Today his vision is a reality, and together with the Mjejane community, we are the caretakers of his legacy.

The Mjejane community is proud to invite you to share in this part of untouched African splendour.

Kruger National Park South

The closest gate to the world famous Kruger National Park is around 475km from Johannesburg and provides immediate access to the Southern Region of the park.

Although the Southern Region of the park is relatively small, it offers the best opportunities for game viewing. This area is greener than the north and sustains a wide variety of game in great numbers. Popular camps include Satara - which is well known for the large number of lions in its vicinity - and Olifants camp with its panoramic vista of the wetland plains around the Olifants river. The reserve has an incredible range of wildlife. From dry savannah with roaming herds of impala to dense brush concealing predators like leopard, the Kruger offers many fascinating sights.

Because driving over 40kmph is not permitted in the park, a journey from north to south takes in the region of 10 hours of driving time. This makes it crucial to plan your trip carefully. The gates close at dusk, as driving is not permitted inside the park after dark, unless on a certified game driving vehicle with a game ranger.

Malelane Golf Club

Malelane Golf Club is a 9 hole golf course situated 1km from the Malelane Gate to the Kruger National Park in Mpumalanga. The course runs along the Crocodile River, and there are plenty of animals and birds to see.
