This double-storey house can accommodate 8 persons and consists of 4 air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms . Two bedrooms are fitted with twin beds and two with queen beds, and the bathrooms have a shower or bath. The fully equipped kitchen contains a large fridge-freezer, a gas stove with an electric oven, a microwave and an ice maker.
The upstairs lounge offers a large flat-screen TV with full DStv viewing. The lounge opens onto an open-plan dining area, and from there, to the upstairs deck which has an outdoor dining table. There is an outdoor braai area, combined with a boma area where one can relax around a fire at night.
A small splash pool is available for guests to use as well. Mountain biking along the river is also very popular, as the terrain is level and the riverfront is approximately 8 km long making for excellent game viewing.
Guests staying at the house are therefore able to see the Big 5 from the upstairs deck, when they visit the river. Marloth Park also has its own animals like giraffe, wildebeest, zebra and impala. On the Kruger National park side of the river, there is a fence separating the animals from Marloth Park.
Various Eco Tourism related activities can be arranged from the house such as Guided Open vehicle game drives to the Kruger Park.
