Relax by the pool at Tusk Bush Lodge
Tusk Bush Lodge now offers self catering accommodation outside of Kruger Park
and only km17 from Crocodile Bridge Gate for those who are on a Kruger getaway. When staying at TBL the days are yours. Get up early to be first at one of the Kruger Parks gates to enter the park on a big 5 self drive safari or go on an open safari vehicle that we can book for you at the lodge or sleep late and go for a walk next the the Krugers southern border fence where 4 of the big 5 are often spotted. Sit by the pool with a good book and a pair of binoculars or on your laptop and catch up on some emails while taking in the fantastic bird life and wait for the local wildlife to come visit you at the lodge, like warthogs, kudus, zebras, Blue Wildebeest the occasional giraffe or two and not forgetting the noisy little mongooses.
Game drive in Kruger National Park
Within Marloth Park we have two small village style shopping centres....Marlothi which comprises a petrol station, small grocery store, bottleshop, post office and an ATM. Our a few hundred meters past a second centre the Bush Centre, which has the "Die Watergat" or water hole, a lovely bus pub/restaurant, an ATM, hardware shop, hairdresser, laundry, grocery store, bottle shop and butcher, all within a five minute drive.... So we might be in the bush but you can still have a few home comforts.
We are perfectly located for you to explore the wonders of the mighty Kruger National Park as we are only ten minutes from the Crocodile Bridge Gate, most southern gate in KNP and the home to the big five, Elephant, Cape Buffalo, Lion, Leopard and Rhino.
