The Kruger Park peers over one of its shoulders while the other leans against a a game reserve, which is the true centre of town.

A couple of shops with essentials and a petrol station are parked on the main circular drive. There aren't very many fences, as they prevent the wildlife from reaching the river or going walkabout. So animals rule the streets, gardens and evertyhing else. When the lions and elephants come visiting, the leave only foot prints.

Hmmm, I think there's a moral in this story...

Marloth Park has its own wildlife and boasts four of the big five (no elephants), however as the crocodile river forms the boundary between Marloth Park and the Kruger National Park you are very likely to spot elephants frolliking in the river.

Marloth Park is a stopover point for budget tourists travelling to the Kruger National Park, to Mozambique or to Swaziland.
