At African Bush Adventurers & Backpackers, we believe in savouring the essence of what makes Africa so precious – stunning wildlife, incredible birdlife, dazzling night skies, and loads of sunshine. It’s a recipe for bliss!

 

African Bush Adventurers & Backpackers is located in Marloth Park, a bushveld paradise on the banks of the Crocodile River, the southern boundary of the iconic Kruger National Park. Here, in the heart of one of Africa’s most beloved geographical areas, you’ll find peace and unparalleled natural beauty.

 

Marloth Park offers the discerning nature-lover a unique opportunity to experience wild animals casually doing what they normally do, but in your garden. It is a place where you can explore beautiful dusty paths on foot, on your bicycle, or in your car. This is the life – pure and simple.

 

At African Bush Adventurers & Backpackers, we go the extra mile to ensure that our guests experience everything we love most about Africa. So, whether you are on a backpacking expedition, or looking for an affordable luxury escape with the one you love, pack your bags because a wonderful adventure awaits you…

 

The original African Bush Backpackers concept was aimed at backpackers. But not just your run-of-the-mill backpackers accommodation – clean, comfortable accommodation with loads of extras that you wouldn’t usually expect to find at a backpackers. We were overwhelmed by the response we got from guests around the world.

 

Then, we noticed that we were also attracting many couples wanting to just escape for an affordable luxury bush escape. So, we expanded and diversified to give you exactly what you want and need! We remodelled our existing en-suite bedrooms to cater specifically for couples on a luxury bush adventure – hence the birth of “African Bush Adventurers”. These rooms are private, beautifully decorated and have everything you need for a memorable time away with your favourite person.

 

The new backpackers accommodation boasts smaller rooms for more privacy in delightful African bush-cottage-style facilities with lovely leisure and dining areas, beautiful pool, and in addition to the indoor showers, you can also shower under the sparkling night sky in our optional outdoor showers.

 

Whatever your accommodation preference, you can always be assured of our commitment to helping you enjoy your Kruger Park experience.
