Awaken to the “sound of Africa” as our resident pair of fish eagles proclaim this stretch of river as their own and onto the deck to check as the permanent hippo pod settle back into the river after a night of foraging and the crocs on the sandbanks catching the early morning sun. Relax over breakfast and enjoy the traffic as the animals come down to the river in front of you. Expect regular visits from elephant, buffalo, rhino, water buck among a host of other game while you prepare for your day ahead. Plan your trip into Kruger as due to our position between the Crocodile and Malelane gates it allows to enter in one gate and leave through the other so not back tracking on any routes and getting to see as much of the park as possible.

Plan your trip into Kruger as due to our position between the Crocodile and Malelane gates it allows to enter in one gate and leave through the other so not back tracking on any routes and getting to see as much of the park as possible. Or spend the day in Marloth itself with a private fenced reserve “Lionspruit” to find the ruling pride of lions among others of the Big 5. Or simply just relax on the deck with a good book while keeping an eye on the river activity and awaiting regular visits in the garden from zebra, kudu, warthogs and even giraffe. Whatever you do ensure you get back to the house as afternoon becomes evening and enjoy sundowners with spectacular sunsets over Kruger Park directly in front of the house. Night is spent either at the fire pit enjoying a braai or once again on the deck listening to the night shift. Expect to hear the contact calls to each other of the hippo, the unmissable sound of the hyena and the thrilling and unmistakable call of the lions. Keep your eyes on the garden though as we usually get a visitor or two from a silent kudu to “Arnold” the duiker who lives behind the house before retiring to bed in eager anticipation of another fabulous day ahead. Majuli River Lodge is a cosy two bedroomed lodge with a large deck and over 2 km of uninterrupted Kruger Park and Crocodile River views. A perfect base for starting your trips into Mpumalanga’s highlights like Kruger, God’s Window, Blyde River Canyon, etc. or just a place to relax, enjoy the bush and let the game come to you. This is truly a magical piece of Africa and Majuli River Lodge commands one of the best views of this wilderness.Mike our local tracker will make your stay a truly memorable one and check the how to get there to see how easy and inexpensive it is to make to make this happen.

The views at Majuli River Lodge were fantastic. Lovely setup. House keeping was a little lax, as it is not serviced daily. Overall we had a really great time. Will definitely will book again at the same place.

How to get there
A car is needed for the park but a standard rental car is fine for both the park and for trips into Kruger Park. We will provide full directions and we can book any guided tours or game drives for you if you want.
