The park interior remains unfenced, but is it is separated from the Kruger National Park via a fence and the Crocodile River. Two entrances can be used to enter the Kruger National Park, namely Crocodile Bridge and Malelane. The advantage to Marloth Park being so close to the Kruger is that visitors can enjoy the convenience of exploring the park, while having a less commercialised area to come back to at the end of the day.
Due to the lack of fences, visitors are encouraged to explore Marloth Park at their leisure with bush walks, self-drives, and bicycles. Keep an ear out for the distant roar of a lion at night. Whether you visit for a weekend or a month, Marloth Park is a great destination for wildlife experiences and exciting family adventures.
