Two Beautifully-Appointed Luxury Self-Catering Properties

Based in Marloth Park, a private wildlife holiday reserve surrounded by Kruger Park’s Crocodile River, Bush Life Travel could not have been better located.

With two stunning luxury self-catering properties for you to choose from, the Bush Life Travel team has gone to great lengths to ensure that you have an unforgettable stay with us, during your African Safari holiday to Kruger Park.

This is not just a place where guests feel welcome, but the local wild animals do too! Which is where the house got its name from… The Wild Bunch garden attracts many different animals which allows for easy game viewing from the comfort of your doorstep, or “stoep”. 

While the house has been beautifully decorated with a distinctive African touch, the stunning leisure areas are the real hallmark of this bush retreat. Designed to give you space and shelter, the inviting outdoor living and dining areas seamlessly bridge the gap between inside and outside, to create a sense of bringing nature to you, without infringing on your comfort. Visitors are always astonished by the number of animals that they can see, without even having to go anywhere.

With room for you favorite people!

The Wild Bunch Safari House has comfortable spots to sit quietly alone with a good book, or to just take in the tranquility of the wild, and it has areas that are perfect for visiting with your favorite people, sharing a hearty meal and making special memories to treasure.

The fully-equipped self-catering kitchen is open-plan onto the lounge, which flows out into the stunning outdoor (undercover) leisure areas. With 2 downstairs bedrooms and 2 loft bedrooms, in addition to 2 bathrooms, there is ample accommodation for up to 6 guests. Ideally located, The Wild Bunch Safari House is a great choice for your bush holiday. So, come and meet the animals…

Safari In Your Own Garden!

The Pata Pata House is built in the original thatched bush lodge style. The lounge and kitchen are open plan with a sliding door to a large covered patio. A stunning, private swimming pool with built-in braai and a lovely outdoor shower are hard to resist during the day.

Both en-suite bathrooms have double sinks, a double shower, and a toilet. A cozy outdoor boma area overlooks a magnificent Maroela Tree and natural bushveld. Here, there is privacy and peace to enjoy daily visits from the resident wildlife,  and spectacular birdlife. Listen to the lion’s roar at night while having a braai or enjoy sundowners on the covered patio while resident wildlife amble by – it’s sublime!


Bush Life Travel offers a range of dinner options that include a three-course dinner prepared by a private chef, at either one of our properties.
