Situated in the Mpumalanga province about 20 km northwest of Komatipoort, lies Marloth Park where animal and man co-exists in the tranquility of the South African bushveld.
This once holiday town is fast becoming a more permanent destination for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and what better place to do so than a development that shares a boundary with the Kruger National Park?
Marloth Park recently achieved the status of a nature conservancy registered with the Parks Board of Mpumalanga and thus shares most of the plant, animal and bird species found in the southern part of the Kruger National Park. Most of the ‘Big Five’ and other predatory animals cannot enter the town but can be viewed from inside the town drinking water from the Crocodile River early in the morning and just before the sun sets on this piece of paradise.
Not only does Marloth Park enjoy close proximity to the Kruger National Park but is also close to Mozambique coastal resorts and is only a 45 minute drive to Swaziland.
The Property Owners Association together with the Honorary Rangers manage Marloth Park so it remains as close as possible to a nature reserve, with human impact reduced to a minimum. They work with the Marlothi Conservancy, Mpumalanga Parks Board and Nkomazi Municipality towards obtaining higher conservation's status for Marloth Park and a scientific approach in managing the fauna and flora in the park.
