The perfect base camp.
Home of the Wild is ideal for exploring the wonders of Mpumalanga Province. Kruger National Park is of course the biggest attraction, but Mpumalanga also offers some of the oldest mountains and caves on the planet, the world’s third largest canyon, as well as a lot of high adrenaline adventure sports. One of South Africa’s eight national botanical gardens is located in Nelspruit.
For the more adventurous, Swaziland and Mozambique are only a day trip away.
the untamed way
Apart from its obvious beauty, we chose to settle in Marloth Park since it provides the perfect hub for a multi-activity holiday. We are wildlife fanatics and will spend days in Kruger National Park, however sometimes it is nice to simply chill out at home or do some sports. Home of the Wild is located in a safe housing estate, yet close to colourful local towns and only 15 minutes from Crocodile Gate and 30 minutes from Malelane Gate, which both offer entry to Kruger National Park.
Wherever your heart takes you.
You won’t need to plan anything in advance. Simply go with the flow, and see where the day takes you. You may end up spending several hours walking along the fence bordering Kruger, or you may choose to leave at 5am to catch the sunrise inside the Park. You may take a trip to Komatipoort, the vibrant local town bordering Mozambique, or you may decide to explore the mountains and nature reserves further south. Perhaps a trip to the Jane Goodall Chimpanzee Sanctuary or to the National Botanical Garden in Nelspruit? For those staying longer, you could opt for a trip to Swaziland or Mozambique. Let yourself be guided by what you see and who you meet, knowing that every single day will be a very rich experience for everyone. You will discover small and large wonders throughout your day. Every day.
