Marula Bush Villa, a 5 star luxury bushveld retreat, nestles gently on the foot of the Drakensberg Mountain Escarpment. This beautiful private bush lodge is on Hoedspruit Wildlife Estate, only a few minutes from the quaint town of Hoedspruit. Hoedspruit is a typical tourist town in the heart of the Greater Kruger National Park.

Marula Bush Villa is conveniently situated an easy 45 minutes drive from both the Phalaborwa Gate and the Orpen Gate to the Kruger National Park. It is 450 km from Johannesburg, or you may choose to take a flight to Eastgate Airport, only 16 km out of Hoedspruit. Transport from the lodge to the airport can be arranged.

Go for a walk in nature or a game drive and discover the wide variety of birds and wildlife species that are found on the Estate. There are two elevated bird hides overlooking dams. Then relax on your patio and sip sundowners while watching the magnificent sunset. Later, next to the fire, you can enjoy the sounds of the bush, and with the far away cry of the hyena, you will unwind and relax – the perfect getaway!
