Safari Adventures in the

Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s most iconic safari destinations, so why not book a safari with one of our experienced and professional guides and allow them to take you on a wild adventure, getting up close and personal with Africa’s wild and amazing animals!

In the North-eastern corner of South Africa and bordering Mozambique on its eastern boundary, the Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. Spanning nearly 20 000 square kilometres, it has a high density of wild animals including the Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalo. Hundreds of other mammals make their home here, as do diverse bird species such as vultures, eagles and storks. Mountains, bush plains and tropical forests are all part of the landscape.

The closest entrance to Marloth Park is Crocodile Bridge Gate, a short 30-min drive from Blue Goose Bush Retreat,


Interact with an

African Elephant

If you are looking for an extra special activity during your Kruger Park holiday, then it’s hard to beat meeting Tswale! Tswale Educational Elephant Interactions are suitable for all ages, and for most people, meeting Tswale is a bucket-list-worthy experience.

Most interactions are around an hour long and include an informative insight into elephants, feeding Tswale and even being able to hug him. However, Tswale is free to be an elephant, and this sometimes means that if he wants to go and roll in the mud, swim or take a walk, his new friends get to accompany him on his elephant adventures. Meeting Tswale is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that you’ll be glad you didn’t miss. But, be warned, Tswale will own a piece of your heart forever. Booking is essential.

Tiger Fish are considered to be among the most exciting freshwater game fish in Africa and have a reputation within the sport fishing community as being one of the strongest fighters, pound-for-pound. Adventurous anglers look no further than a tiger fishing safari as these fish are renowned for their speed, strength, aerial antics and aggressive nature.

Spend the day on a beautiful stretch of pristine river close to the Kruger National Park and pit your wits and strength against these amazing fish. Our tiger fishing trips are fun for the whole family, but be warned, landing a tiger fish is an honour you have to earn!

Freedom to

go on a Wild Ride...

One of the things that makes Marloth Park so special and unique, is the freedom it gives you to cycle freely where wild animals live and walk – it’s exceptional!

Explore the wild beauty of Marloth Park, or cycle along the banks of Kruger Park’s Crocodile River, where members of the Big 5 are often seen. This is yet another family-friendly activity to chalk up on your bucket-list.
