EP 24: Owning a Home in a Game Reserve

Amelia Taljaardt and her family recently built a home in Marloth Park.

Marloth Park is a 3,000-hectare wildlife sanctuary situated on the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

With the exception of elephants, the park has four of the big five. But, since the crocodile river forms the border between Marloth Park and the Kruger National Park, elephants can also be seen playing in the river.

Hedgehog 896 – Marloth Park 

896 Hedgehog is a comfortably furnished self-catering house. The house comprises 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen, and a dining area. The bedrooms are furnished with queen-size beds, and each room has an en-suite bathroom with a shower and a toilet.

The open-plan kitchen is equipped with a stove and oven, a microwave, a fridge, an ice machine, as well as tea- and coffee-making facilities, and meals can be enjoyed at the dining table.

The living area opens onto a patio that overlooks the swimming pool and boma braai area.

Visitors to Marloth Park will have the opportunity to see a wide variety of free-roaming wildlife, do some bird watching, cycle, walking, and quad-biking. The town also offers a water park, and putt-putt as well as basic facilities such as a liquor store, restaurants, a bakery, a curio shop, and a petrol station.
