Safe and comfortable, the perfect base for your African adventure. It's favoured by small groups or couples who love space and privacy. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, AC, a fully fitted kitchen and even a tent on the viewing deck tent for the real bush experience.

Bush life is experienced outdoors. The large private garden with huge old trees is a favorite spot for visiting animals. Add to that a rock swimming pool, a splash pool and a BBQ area and all is set for a relaxing holiday.

Bordering Kruger Park's Crocodile River, you are perfectly located for safari, game viewing walks or watching animals from the porch. Day trips to Swaziland, Mozambique and Blyde River Canyon can be organised as well. 

Why choose Rafiki’s Resthouse?

  • Solar panels: Load shedding and power cuts are not a problem at Rafiki's. Essential electric devices such as lights, microwave, WiFi and the fridge will stay on.

  • Water well: During the frequent water outages, Rafiki's continues to have water through it's borehole.

  • Close to the river: 3 mins walk from Crocodile River, yet not right on the dusty and noisy game viewing river road

  • Close to Kruger/shopping: Close to the second exit in Marloth Park and therefore 15min drive from Kruger National Park and 15min to shopping in Komatipoort.

  • Large garden with trees which guarantees your privacy. You are not surrounded by dry and open shrub land as is the case with many properties in Marloth Park.

  • Rock swimming pool open all year round

  • Numerous animal visits

  • Outside BBQ area (boma) where one can listen to the sounds by the river and in the bush

  • AC and fan in all rooms

  • Mosquito proof windows in all rooms to allow fresh air

  • Borehole. You will not be without water if Marloth reservoir is empty or not working (which happens a few times a year)

  • Daily cleaning at a low rate

  • A housekeeper who can cook for guests who pay her a small compensation

  • The owners’ advice and continuous assistance in all matters great and small related to the bush and Africa
